Holistic Bodywork – Tauranga

Share with your friends…

When was the last time you gave yourself one hour? I mean totally one hour – just for you, just to switch off and relax with no distractions?

If this is something completely foreign to you, then I really do urge you to make this a priority in your life. One hour a week, a fortnight, a month?

I specialise in helping people relax. To tune out from what craziness is going on in their life, and to assist the body to relax, to let go of pain, to let go of stress, to re-balance.

You can’t function 100% if your tank is running on empty and eventually this will lead to burnout and chronic health issues…you know that…so now’s your chance to do something about it.

“I am a small Business owner and I have been going to Paula on a weekly basis over the last 18 Months for a body maintenance program to relieve muscular tension associated with being on my feet all day. Paula is an excellent practitioner who understands my needs depending on the symptoms on the day. She is able to adapt with various treatments and alignment techniques to get my body back on track. I highly recommend Paula as a practitioner.”

Christian – Mount Maunganui

“I hired Paula to carry out mini-massages for my workshop retreat clients and they LOVED it! Over the years I’ve had many different massage therapists in many different countries, and Paula is without a doubt one of the top three. She’s in tune, empathetic and highly experienced at her craft.”

“An appointment with Paula is not a simple treatment you would expect . She is equipped to handle real body issues and does it by accessing a wide variety of methodologies and a varied skill set. She offers body work that will truly help heal your aches and pains. She has worked on my body for over a year and I can only speak very highly of Paula’s treatments as I always leave very relaxed and with a peaceful mind.”

Ann-Marie – Mount Maunganui

“I was a regular client of Paula’s for a number of years, experiencing all her treatments over this time.  Paula is always friendly, professional, helpful & understanding.  She takes the time to listen and offer treatment suggestions that would work best for me on the day. 
I found a huge benefit in going for regular treatments and particularly enjoyed Paula’s awesome relaxation massage and reflexology sessions, so much so that I fell asleep more often than not!”
Anne – Lower Hutt

“I have known Paula for some years now. Her massages were very beneficial to me, both physically and emotionally.

When you get a great massage from someone who is connecting with you on all levels – the body knows and responds.

I wish you well in your endeavours Paula and know new clients will enjoy your efforts. Wish you were down here still!’

Nola – Wellington

 “I met Paula several years ago while she was living in the Wellington area.  At my first  treatment I was impressed with Paula’s professionalism and her ability to make me feel at ease.  I  soon became a regular client who not only enjoyed the benefit of beautiful relaxing massages, but developed a lovely friendship.  I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her services to others.”

Pohaku Hawaiian Stone Massage

Imagine a warm, comfortable room with soft music. A heated, oiled stone glides across your skin, another follows.

Feeling yourself relax you take a deep breath and your stress just melts away. You feel the hands of the therapist massaging you, or is that another stone?

As the heat penetrates, and tight, knotted muscles are loosened, you have no choice but to let the tension melt away. Your mind drifts away into an almost meditative state…

Pohaku Hawaiian Stone Massage

Pohaku Hawaiian Stone massage is the ULTIMATE relaxation massage experience!

The heat helps promote deep relaxation, and encourages the muscles to relax and release tension. It also stimulates and harmonises the body’s flow of energy, and helps to balance the body.

The treatment has the ability to affect the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies in a positive way. As it works on all of these areas it becomes a total healing experience.

80 minutes of BLISS $120

“I experienced one of Paula’s hot stone massages and I have to honestly say, it was the best massage I have ever received. The stones were hot (unlike some other places), Paula knew exactly how to work with them and the
experience was amazing.
My muscles felt like liquid and my whole body totally relaxed. It was so amazing that I treated my sister to one when she visited from overseas.
I am very sad that Paula has moved away from Wellington,
because I don’t believe I will find a better hot stone therapist here.”

Reiki is a healing technique whereby the therapist can channel energy into the person through hands-on touch.

A Reiki practitioner has been attuned to the healing energies of Ki (life force energy) which, when channelled into the body can activate the natural healing processes and restore physical and emotional well-being.

At the very least a Reiki session will leave you feeling lovely and relaxed as you float into a parasympathetic response of deep rest, essential for re-balancing your body and de-stressing.

Some people will feel heat coming from the practitioner’s hands, and heat or tingling in the area where the hands are resting, some people will feel no sensations at all.

A profound sense of wellbeing and peace comes from a Reiki session, so no matter the physical response in your body, the overall benefit is hugely positive.

Bowen Therapy

Bowen Therapy is extremely efficient for relieving stresses, whether they be physical or mental.

Bowen Therapy relies on gentle hands-on operations at multiple muscle locations to stimulate and restore the body’s natural immune and healing responses in order to eliminate various musculo-skeletal imbalances.

Very subtle moves are performed over muscles and connective tissue sending messages deep into the body allowing the body to energise and rebalance itself.

If you are wanting to compare Bowen with another therapy it could be described as acupuncture without needles, however it has no relationship to any other known therapy and is classed as revolutionary in its effectiveness and approach.

Bowen addresses the body as a whole unit rather than just the presenting symptoms. It embraces the physical, chemical, emotional and mental aspects of a person. Bowen is truly holistic in this regard, it treats the whole person giving an optimum long-term solution for maintaining good health.

Bowen Therapy

Bowen Therapy is very successful in treating a wide range of ailments and injuries, effectively and gently:

  • Stress/Tension
  • Back Pain
  • Neck/Shoulder Problems
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • OOS/Carpel Tunnel
  • PMS/Endometriosis
  • Menopause
  • Asthma
  • Digestive disorders
  • Arthritis
  • Jaw misalignments

45-60 minutes $60


“I came to Paula after hearing a few years previously how Bowen therapy can reset the body after accidents. A rare event happened where I had a severe neck impact injury and I needed to get back to work smartly as I’m self employed.

My experience was interesting, and yet quite profound. Bowen therapy is gentle, as it works on the more subtle nervous system areas of your body, yet I could definitely feel both physical and emotional shifts even in the first session. My neck improved hugely and after the third session I felt back to 100% potency.

I am a highly skilled massage practitioner so I acknowledge the need to be at the top of my game, for myself and my clients. Bowen therapy definitely fast-paced that progress!

Thank you for your healing touch Paula.”

Stef C – Mount Maunganui

“I was seeing Paula for a number of years, for massage, Bowen therapy, and holistic pulsing. I highly recommend Paula, she has such a kind, gentle nature, and a knack of making people feel relaxed and at ease.

I have not managed to find anyone with the magic touch that Paula has since she left Wellington.”
