Therapist

Paula has given treatments in Edinburgh, Borders and Lothians since January 2009 to people of all ages from babies to the elderly, with different needs and concerns. She has treated individuals with limited mobility, auto immune and long-term conditions, hormonal issues, digestive disorders, anxiety and acute stress, muscular skeletal and soft tissue complaints and restrictions, as well assist with rehabilitation of injuries.

She offers a wide range of massage from Holistic to Remedial & Sports Massage and treats clients for occupational tension, postural issues, pre or post sport massage, restricted movement, soft tissue aches and pains as well as relaxation and well-being.

Through her Reflexology and many years teaching wellbeing in adult education she specialises in supporting clients with anxiety and stress.  She has worked with numerous people who have been physically and emotionally ‘burned out,' or suffer from the restrictions of anxiety, offering her knowledge, skills and experience and was in the Scotsman Magazine in November 2014 for her stress busting ‘Top to Toe’ treatment. Paula works with the body/mind connection and the effects of stress on the body systems to rebuild energy levels and restore the body and mind back to a state of balance.  It is through Limbic Reflexology that she is able to support clients with anxiety and testimonials can be found on her personal website: la-vie-therapies.co.uk.

Bowen Technique has a very specific effect of fascia, which is the tissue that surrounds organs, muscles and muscle fibres, and creates a network in the body.  It is a very gentle form of natural healing which involves light moves applied to specific parts of the body.  Paula has given Bowen treatments for muscular skeletal issues, digestive issues, hormonal complaints, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, arthritis, vertigo, migraines and colicky babies.
