Hi! My name is Paula, I'm Licensed Massage Therapist in the State of California.
I was worked as administrative for many years. Working in office was making my back hurt and had poor blood circulation due to bad posture. In the year 2005, my back was hurting badly that I couldn’t sleep in the night, and it continued to disturb my sleep for three years. In early 2009, my friend introduced me to know her aunt who was a professional massage therapist from Thailand. She helped me with massage and I could feel very much better from the very first treatment. I have taken four treatments-once a week and my back was fixed. My friend’s aunt’s massage skill was amazed me and inspired me to learn how to do massage, and I want to extend help to others who might have the similar problem as I was. I went to Chiang Mai, Thailand, to learn how to do massage, but unfortunately I couldn’t complete the whole course due to my family issue. After I moved to California, I have fulfilled my dream, and I have completed the Massage Therapy Course and obtained Massage Therapist License of California.
I have knowledge of Eastern and Western Bodyworks. Through my experienced with the issue of my back pain, I understand and know how to help my clients with combination technics to provide the best benefits.

Traditional Chinese medicine explains acupuncture as a technique for balancing the flow of energy or life force. By inserting needles into specific points along these meridians. In contrast, many Western practitioners view the acupuncture points as places to stimulate nerves, muscles and connective tissue. Some believe that this stimulation boosts your body's natural painkillers.
Cupping is the term applied to a technique that uses small glass cups suction devices that are placed on the skin to disperse and break up stagnation and congestion by drawing congested blood, energy or other humors to the surface.cupping can loosen muscles, encourage blood flow, and sedate the nervous system. Cupping is used to relieve back and neck pains, stiff muscles, anxiety, fatigue, migraines, rheumatism, and even cellulite.
