I am a licensed, LGBT friendly professional massage therapist and energy healer. I use a combination of the best massage techniques combined with energy healing that will reduce your stress and bring total relaxation and enjoyment. Massage is a vital component to health and well being, and can even make exercise not only easier but more enjoyable. Energy healing is an awesome way to compliment this work. To help you... meet your goals I can offer special package deals tailored for you. I can also help you deal with chronic tension in a specific area if that is your goal.
I use swedish, deep tissue, compressions, pressure points, sports, esalen, yoga stretches, etc. along with energy work/healing that may include reiki, chakra balancing, tactile imaging, etc. based on both knowledgeable and intuitive assessment, with various levels of alternating pressure and precision. I also practice a form of compression and thai massage that everyone tells me is unique, using my knees--that they literally haven't experienced elsewhere. I have devised this based on more traditional techniques but utilizing control and balance gained through my yoga practice. I will always work within your comfort level however,regardless of technique or whether the massage is for relaxation/enjoyment or chronic tension and stress.

Gathered by Paul from admiring massage clients to share with you.

This was my third opportunity to be in the hands of this amazing masseur. You will find Paul to be extremely knowledgeable about the human body -- and yet there is more to the massage. Paul describes himself as a "healer" and it is true. What that means practically, in part, is that Paul approaches each client in a thoughtful, holistic and even spiritual way. He is deeply motivated to bring deep well-being and physical benefit, along with acknowledging that bodies are integrated with souls, with personal histories, with cares. He has knees that knead, fingers and hands that assess and treat your problem areas precisely, and a heart that cares. You will be welcomed with warmth; you'll be treated like a prince; afterwards, you'll be walking on the clouds. Paul's positive energy is transformative for your body and soul. It's why I keep coming back. Worth the trip to Woonsocket!

I am writing this review fully six weeks after my 2nd massage with Paul. And, I am still stunned that the deep power of Paul's touch is still felt. Yes, there was immediate relief of pain and a huge gain of agility and balance. There was the cumulative benefit of going to him twice in the space of five days. But there was and is something more restorative and healing with this gifted masseur. It's a combination of caring and empathizing. It was adjusting of my muscles and my mind. Paul's gifts and abilities work at emotional and even spiritual levels -- something that sets him far and away above so many others. Weeks later, I am looking back on that massage and amazed that it has continuing impact.

Paul is amazing, truly amazing. I have had hundreds of massages from many masseurs -- and Paul is easily in the top three for a lot of reasons. I'll key off the word "authentic," meaning that the massage and energy work he does is from the inner recesses of his heart. That has formed a man who is fully aware of himself and his senses -- and it equips him to be in tune with your sensory experience. The authenticity has motivated him to be extremely knowledgeable about bodies and to confidently use his own to accomplish deep and meaningful muscle work. He genuinely wants to help you feel better and accrue all of the benefits of massage. To that end, he is an authentic communicator as well. He'll send you a special link when you book an appointment with excellent resources to help you gain even more from massage. And, if you wish for conversation, you will find Paul engaging and authentic. When I laid down on his massage table, I was sore from a long drive. But his work on my neck and shoulders has reduced the pain, tenseness and restored a range of motion. Paul's knees get into the action as well -- and in a remarkable and effective way. Paul has the depth, the knowledge, the personal commitment, the mastery of various approaches/techniques, and the attentiveness to care for your needs (offering water, a shower, etc. in a genuinely warm and helpful way). I cannot recommend anyone more highly. Wow!

Paul is an outstanding individual, very centered and grounded in what he does. His style of massage includes a variety of techniques to include Reiki, Esalen, and Yoga stretching to name a few. His technique and delivery are expert and intuitive demonstrating an excellent working knowledge of both body and energy work. It is clear that Paul enjoys what he does as is evidenced by his ability to deliver an outstanding experience for his client. I have experience with energy work and have been getting massage for over 20 years and I can honestly say that Paul's was one of the best I have ever had. I would recommend him to anyone from the novice first timer to the experienced connoisseur. I will definitely be going back soon.

I have been a regular client of Paul's for the past three years and I will not go to any other massage therapist. Paul always greets me with a smile. He is a genuinely nice, considerate guy who has the most amazing massage skills I have ever experienced.
Each session always begins by asking if there are any trouble spots that need to worked upon. Throughout the session, Paul is always asking how the pressure is and if more or less is needed. He has an intuitive sense as to what muscles are tense and need to be addressed.
Paul uses a variety of massage techniques such as Esalen and deep tissue. He is also one of the few therapists that incorporates assisted stretching into his routine. It is a wonderful addition.
His space is warm and comfortable; clean, professional and welcoming. A massage by Paul will be a rewarding experience that will take you to a relaxing place like no other.

I have been getting massages for about 15 years now and have been searching for the perfect therapist for me. I found Paul a little over a year ago and have been seeing him twice a month since. He is by far the best I've seen, ever!!!
Paul is extremely caring and intuitive and knows when to deliver the perfect combination of deep pressure soothing strokes.
Paul is more than a masseur. He has the gift of a true healer for the body and mind. His massage brings me to a place where all my pains and troubles disappear for the 90 min I am on his table and stays with me for the rest of the day. It's more like a 90 min hug. You can feel the positive energy he shares with every movement.
