About Us

Paul Zagala

Certified Massage Therapist

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 a great knowledge of physiology and corrective techniques. His massages usually incorporate relaxing techniques along with various therapeutic modalities to allow for maximum healing. He is best know for deeper therapeutic and restorative body work but has refined skills in relaxation and stress reduction as well.

Over the years Paul has developed his own unique style he calls "Muscle Tracing". While he "traces" over  your muscle tissue he massages the muscle while using his highly developed palpation skills to feel for congested tissue and myofascial adhesions. When issues in the tissue are found, they are addressed using the appropriate modality then move on to continue this process throughout the rest of the body.
