Paula’s remedial and sports massages are nothing short of amazing. I have mild scoliosis and the sessions with her have helped me so much over the last few months. I always walk out of the appointments so relaxed and with a smile on my face.

I would like to thank you for the recent treatments I received. You were very thorough and explained clearly what was involved. This has enabled me to get back to being mobile again and pain free.

I would recommend you to anyone needing massage treatment.

Thank you for an amazing massage. My neck feels so much better. What is really good are my headaches. They have been dull since Saturday night. They eased off after my drive home and have not got as intense in the front and nothing in the back. I also have had no nausea since Saturday so thank you.

You have such a lovely, calming, gentle and professional manner. It instantly put me at my ease. I am not good at relaxing or at being massaged – I dread that kind of stuff and I do not usually like being touched but I felt confident that I could cope by the way you came across in your professional approach.

I am looking forward to my next session and will do my exercises. Thank you so much for helping in one go with my Vestibular Migraines and I am sure it will continue to improve at our next session.

With very best wishes Karen

The magic of Paula lies not just in her massage techniques!

For me the benefits of deep tissue massage with Paula have gone far beyond the instant relief from aches, pains and tightness. I’ve experienced a progressive improvement which has led to better posture and movement which in turn allows me to do more with my Pilates exercises, which is a huge bonus. Paula takes a very holistic approach, seeking to get to the root cause of issues (which can be something as simple as bad posture while reading a book in bed!). She has a wealth of knowledge across a number of therapies from which she can draw to offer specific advice such as targeted stretches to do at home. This combination of skill, knowledge and advice is why I would highly recommend Paula.

I have been receiving massage and reflexology treatments from therapist Paula for the past 18 months and have found her many skills to be helpful and supportive.

Paula utilises all her knowledge during my reflexology treatment to help with hormonal balancing, fluid retention, reducing the symptoms of fibromyalgia and anxiety. Her massage skills are also effective supporting postural and mobility difficulties and tension arising from pain; my partner has also been helped with a knee problem.

Having regular treatments has really made a difference to my life and I have found Paula’s care, understanding and abilities amazing. Anyone considering reflexology or massage should definitely get in touch.

Since injuring an already arthritic knee I am very grateful to Paula for her remedial massage treatment. Over the last year she has helped mobilise the joint and I am now able to walk properly again with minimal pain. I cannot recommend her highly enough - professional and friendly care in a relaxing environment.

I have been receiving treatments from Paula, Massage Therapist since May 2015. Originally for help with sacrum and neck pain which she was able to ease and allow me to continue with my interests of gardening and golf. Paula has also helped with post-operative knee pain and advise me on stretching and postural changes for my back, neck and shoulders.

More recently I have also developed arthritis in my spine and for this Paula uses her reflexology skills and a technique called Reflexology Lymphatic Drainage. I have been pain free since the third treatment but continue with weekly sessions which are not part reflexology and part massage support.

Paula has sound anatomical knowledge and healing hands and I recommend her wholeheartedly.

Paula is a great therapist,very knowledgeable and friendly, and very proffessional.

I came to Paula for reflexology initially, which helped me with my headaches, and went on to have regular massages for back and shoulder pain, and have felt so much better with the massage and exercises she has given me. Following shoulder surgery she was instrumental in speeding up the recovery process.

I have been to many therapists and have found her to be one of the best. i have noticed huge benefits in my range of motion and pain reduction. I would highly recommend her.

For the past few months I have had deep tissue massage with Paula which has been life changing. When I first came to her my body was stiff and feeling as if I had become old ( only 66)

even although I did yoga,Qi Gong and Aquafit. Her magic hands and extensive energy knowledge have created huge change in my body and mind and have given me back control in my life. The changes have made me feel young and vibrant again. I am so grateful! I thoroughly recommend her treatments.

I cannot recommend Paula Barret highly enough! She is a skilled and experienced therapist who, in my case, was able to diagnose a problem and use a variety of techniques with which to relieve it.

She gives the best deep tissue massage I have ever had! I find her sympathetic and feel completely comfortable receiving treatment from her.

Paula was brilliant at fixing my dodgy knee. I have an inherent weakness in my left knee due to my flat feet. I reguarly wear orthopeadic insoles to protect my knee however after a mixture of forgetting to wear them and overdoing it at the gym I was in agony I couldn't touch the inside of my knee.

I Couldn't bend my knee and it was even sore when my knees were touching in bed. After just half an hour of Paula massaging/manipulating my gluts, and legs, there was no longer any pain to touch my knee and I could bend again with ease.

It was like magic - she knew just the points to work.

"I have had massage, reflexology and bowen therapy with Paula over the last year or so.

Paula is keen to make sure that any ongoing issues are resolved and is always thinking of new things to target troublesome areas. She is very easy to talk to but is also aware when talking isn't required. Her indian head massage is to die for!"

"Massages from Paula have been great, helping both my stiff shoulders and neck from day-to-day to office work as well as a more specific sport (tennis)-related arm injury.

She's also been on hand to advise on daily exercises to avoid/prevent future stiffness/injury and made me realise that massage is not just a luxury but it also plays a part in maintaining a healthy body."

"I’ve used Paula at Massage by Paula several times now for deep tissue massage and I really feel it is complimenting my training. I get tight IT bands but Paula always manages to work out the knots and the next day I feel great. I would have no hesitation in recommending Paula for DT massage."

I started coming to Paula for massage after a serious injury. Her magic hands have worked wonders for me, my stiff and aching tight muscles released. My arthritic foot is regularly eased, as are my hips, back and neck.

I was due to have a rotator cuff operation and now miraculously this is no longer required!

I have had both reflexology and Indian head massage. I have found very great benefit from both. Paula is very flexible about fitting in with times that suit me and I always feel she is giving me absolutely full attention and sometimes more than my alotted time. I have had other reflexology treatmnets in the the past and I would rate Paula as one of the best.

Having never had an indian head massage before, but thought it sounded lovely, I was very looking forward to it - I was not disappointed.

The atmosphere was relaxing, Paula checked that I was comfortable and happy with the amount of pressure she would use and it began.

What a delightful surprise to find that not only was my head being massaged but also my neck, shoulders, arms and back - pure bliss.

Indian Head Massage is one of the most relaxing therapies, I felt like I was floating afterwards and had a fantastic deep sleep that night.

If you feel stressed, have trouble sleeping or just want to pamper yourself, book yourself in for an Indian Head Massage with Paula, relax and enjoy every minute.

I have had both indian head massages and reflexology and can say they have been brilliant every time. I have recieved treatments during my pregnancy and since and have found it relaxing and also helps reduce my stress levels as I have been going through a difficult time in my professional life. I would highly reccomend Paula to anyone.

The Indian Head Massage is fabulous. I can lose myself in this very relaxing treatment and surroundings, which are cozy and calm. Paula is an attentive and caring therapist. If only my bed was next to the massage chair!
