“I have been getting massages from Paul for at least 7 years. I have no doubt that these sessions are one of the key reasons I no longer suffer from chronic back pain and, even better, am free from the constant worry that “my back may go out” at any moment. The sessions with Paul are consistent. He never waivers in his thoroughness and concentration and observation. Aside from being an excellent clinician, Paul is a good teacher. He has taught me much about the body, and, in particular, the role of fascia. When I have the occasional physical limitation, he usually can explain the source of the problem, and typically recommends an exercise to help get me back to normal. I have been proud to refer Paul to many people over the years, for which they are very grateful.”  Philip M

“All behaviors involve movement at some level, thus and all healing and education look ultimately for a behavioral change, and thus a movement change: therefore all involve guided movement, however overt or subtle. Movement is a transfer of energy, with specific qualities of effort, shape, and rhythm. Guided movement can occur from the molecular or cellular level, up through the organismic level, to the kind of entrainment that happens to a group or culture. The guidance can come from hand, body, or voice.” Thomas Myers

“Always we hope someone else has the answer. Some other place will be better, some other time it will all turn out. This is it. No one else has the answer. No other place will be better, and it has already turned out. At the center of your being you have the answer; you know who you are and you know what you want. There is no need to run outside for better seeing, nor to peer from a window. Rather abide at the center of your being; for the more you leave it the less you learn. Search your heart and see the way to do is to be.” Lao Tze

“Paul helps my legs stay loose and removes the waste products that accumulate after hard workouts. Paul’s sports massages helps me recover faster and helps to prevent my injuries.” Bernd Breitmaier
