About Paul Freedom
Paul has been doing massage on an intuitive level from the time he was 10. It has always come naturally to him. When he began formal training, he knew this was what he wanted to focus his life around. He has extensive knowledge of physiology and corrective techniques. His massages typically incorporate relaxing techniques along with various therapeutic modalities to allow for maximum healing. He is best known for deeper therapeutic and restorative body work, but has refined skills in relaxation and stress reduction as well.
Our bodies possess incredible capabilities, capable of granting us a long and relatively pain-free life if we provide them with proper care. However, the reality is that many individuals lead hectic lives filled with stress, making it challenging to find time for exercise, stretching, healthy eating, and more. Numerous careers, activities, and hobbies involve repetitive actions or create sedentary lifestyles, both of which can lead to issues within our muscle, skeletal, and nervous systems. When combined with the added burden of stress, our bodies are likely to experience problems. Fortunately, massage offers benefits beyond mere relaxation. It can effectively counteract the damage caused by neglect or misuse.
The optimal state for your body to heal is relaxation, which is why we prioritize this principle in our work. Regardless of the specific technique being used, most of our sessions aim to keep clients in a relaxed state. In my view, the notion of "no pain, no gain" is rarely necessary. While it is common to experience a "good hurt" sensation, known as "therapeutic pain," when addressing problematic areas, we approach each session based on the individual's unique needs. Everyone responds differently to various techniques and levels of pressure, so we customize the session to accommodate their specific requirements and current condition.
To foster a continuous state of relaxation, we never rush our techniques. Sessions are scheduled at least 30 minutes apart, allowing for a few additional minutes beyond the allotted time if necessary.
