Education/Training
I participate in continuing education, and have taken more classes and seminars in nearly 25 years than I can count! My initial training was at the College of DuPage in Glen Ellyn, Illinois, then I continued with a private instructor. This was at a time when there were not very many massage schools, and the ones that did exist were too expensive to attend. I took my sciences at the college level instead, and then sat for my certification exams. I was fortunate to land a job in a chiropractic clinic for my second hands on experience, and I worked there, and learned there, for 7 years before starting my own business.

I have had the good fortune to have Paula as my massage therapist for about 15 years. Paula is simply wonderful! She is very good about being on time for her appointments. I really liked that she would begin each session asking what areas needed special attention. That was important to me because then we didn't waste any time. She also checks in with you throughout the massage to make sure you are comfortable. Paula has a very professional manner about her and yet is still quit caring. She has a remarkable way of making you feel so at ease while she is working on you. Anyone who has the opportunity to have Paula as their massage therapist will not be disappointed. It is my pleasure to be able to share my experience with you. My husband and I miss her a great deal and wish her the very best with her new practice in Oklahoma

I was a client of Paula for many years when she was in the Chicago area and found her to be a highly trained, highly skilled massage therapist who addresses each client's specific needs. I have fibromyalgia and saw her weekly to manage that condition. She's very personable and professional, and I recommend her without reservation.

Paula was an amazing massage therapist for me. She was not only professional and courteous, she was (and is) a truly warm and caring human being.

From a professional viewpoint, she was always on time, was very thorough about asking me if I was having any specific problems and she always listened to my feedback.

From a personal viewpoint, Paula is a compassionate therapist. She worked with me on specific issues I had in a gentle yet very effective way.

I highly recommend her.

I have known Paula for over 15 years. We met when she was a massage therapist at our chiropracter, when we moved back to Chicago. We loved her work so much, that after she left the Chiro's practice, we (my wife and I) began to have her over once a month to our home for a massage. We did this for the last 11-12 years, until her recent move to OK. She is a wonderful therapist and all around great person. I also miss our "movie review" discussions during our seesions.

Sincerely
