Paul has been fixing the issues in the tissues of Maui Residents and Visitors since 1996. One of the youngest graduates of Maui Academy of the Healing Arts, he always knew that bodywork had transformative properties. As the youngest of four, at an early age Paul was diagnosed/labeled as ADD. However, his mom, a Registered Nurse, but ever the naturalist at heart wanted to try a remedy for his overactive need for attention, that did not require drugs. It worked! And since then Paul has had an extreme interest in the connection between massage and every muscle related malady. Focused on mobility, posture correction, and injury rehab. Paul has undergone extensive education for treating all muscle related injuries.
Paul is a graduate of:
Gokhale Methods Foundation Teacher Certification (posture course), Center for Pain Management - Orthopedic Massage Certification, British Sports Therapy (Soft Tissue Release), Myofascial Release, Upledger Institute - Lymph Drainage and Craniosacral Level 1 & Level 2, Kinesiology Taping Certification (FMT and Blades), Functional Range Conditioning, Certified FRC Mobility Specialist, Dr Andreo A Spina, Founder.
There is often a two week wait to see Paul so if you see an appointment grab it. If it is muscle related, and most issues are just by the sheer numbers of muscles in your body, chances are we can help. We often hear Paul ask this question: "Is there a position you can get into that lessens the pain?" If so, book an appointment with Paul and get on the road to recovery.

"Absolute 10 star experience! Not only have I had my needs listened to and addressed thoroughly, but even the therapist's touch is brilliant and intuitive. I am a therapist of 22 years but I have referred clients here for trickier cases needing a lot of technical knowledge. Most technically advanced MT I've been to!"
"A few years ago after hiking Haleakala crater (13 miles), I commented that I thought it was strange that the only parts of my body that hurt were my hips. Paul immediately replied that this was likely due to weak glutes. I never would have put this together on my own, but after a few sessions with Paul and some serious effort at the gym, I have seen a huge improvement."
I'm not the type of person who regularly gets a massage, more like almost never, so it took my shoulder practically not being able to move and thinking I might need surgery to motivate me to make an appointment with Paul, who was highly recommended by friends. After one session I gained mobility, had a better understanding of what was going on with my shoulder and hopeful that it would get better without surgery. It helped so much that I made regular appointments and tried different methods such as cupping, scraping, and taping.
