After a near-death experience and loss of so much of my body weight, Paula at Revitalize has helped enormously with the aches, pains, and strains of my long-term recovery and rebuilding of strength and fitness, and the stresses of returning to challenging work situations (I have been known to sleep all afternoon after treatment!). Her talent for finding the knotty problems and her excellent skills in sorting them out with massage etc, has greatly sped up my return to normality, as has some great work by other members of the Revitalize team.

I originally went to see Paula as a result of pain in my elbow, brought on by rock-climbing. The visit brought immediate relief, and subsequent visits allowed me start back at the sport in short order. I now visit every 3-4 weeks to help tackle the stiffness and soreness I get in my forearms and shoulders from long days in the office in front of a computer. I see this as essential maintenance now and I really look forward to the session and feeling freer and more mobile. Paula is a true professional, knowledgeable, organised, respectful and friendly. I have no hesitation recommending her to anyone.

The healing and restorative powers of Paula’s massage treatment was recommended to me by my partner, and despite having had very few massages in my previous 53 years, I am now a convert. Over the last few months Paula has treated various problems I had been experiencing, from neck and shoulder pain to a strange leg/hip pain which only occurred when sitting down. Paula’s massages have successfully treated each problem and left me feeling much restored. Whether you have specific issues, or just need a bit of pampering, I can heartily recommend Paula.

I have Parkinson’s disease and Paula has been giving me treatment for about a year which releases the symptoms of the stiffness for a few day’s after it. Paula is very dedicated and kind. She always ensures that I am comfortable and flexes her treatment to suit my symptoms. I suffer from anxiety which is a symptom of the Parkinson’s disease where Paula is adaptable to my special needs and aware that not every day is a good day for me.
