About Paula

I’m based in North Dorset but I’m originally from Cape Town in beautiful South Africa.

Born with the travelling bug, I started my sports massage journey in London where I studied at the London School of Sports Massage in 1997.

I love studying and have subsequently attained qualifications in Remedial Sports Massage in 2001, Traditional Thai Yoga Massage in 2005 and Visceral and Neuro-meningeal Manipulation from 2010 onwards.

Before resettling in Dorset, I taught Level 5 BTEC Sports Massage at the North London School of Sports Massage for 16 years and it was a joy to share my passion and give back to my field.

I have also created and presented CPDs for fellow professionals on hypermobility and Sports Thai Massage.

I hope to meet soon and help you to better body mobility.

What people say

“I came to see Paula, because I had an injury that just wasn’t getting better with regular physiotherapy.

I’d torn a muscle in my abdomen, and was quite nervous about anything making it worse, but after the first session of Visceral Manipulation treatment, I felt a sense of space opening up around the area.

Other bits of me that had always been tight started relaxing too as Paula ‘spoke’ to them through her hands.

All through the most gentle touch no yanking, pulling, breaking down knots! And now my abdomen is healing nicely, and more than this: I feel like I am making a better connection with my body through the treatments I’ve had with Paula.”

“I am always treated by Paula, a very professional and dedicated therapist, she spares no effort to use her vast expertise and advice. Her treatment is so effective to my multiple body health problems that I feel I am getting a new lease of life and Paula is highly recommended.”
