Our Practitioners

Paula Sam | Founder and Director


Paula has been practicing the art of massage for more than 25 years. Her skilled approach to bodywork is informed by many years of study of a wide range of healing arts and is marked by her warm, caring personality. Paula’s interest in the healing arts began with learning about aromatherapy, reflexology, and body treatments. After studying and receiving kinesiology therapy, she crossed paths with Master FaXiang Hou, a fifth-generation healing QiGong Master. He had just moved to the U.S. from China and was offering applied QiGong therapy sessions. Paula received many sessions before beginning his Level One applied QiGong therapy classes.


Paula believes her own body is a vehicle for searching, learning, and experiencing the effects of a variety of treatments and philosophies and that these discoveries enable her to truly help others. Her intention is to be a lifelong student of ayurveda; herbal therapies; auricular therapy; and the connections between the subtle body, the emotions, the physical body, and health. She is also a proponent of the benefits of raw living foods, spagyrics, essential oils, herbs, and panchakarma.


Through massage and esogetic colorpuncture, Paula works with her clients to help them find their way back to harmony, awareness, balance, and wellness. In her words, “I enjoy watching the many remarkable ways their eyes have more light, the softening of their skin, contagious smiles, and how they want to be empowered with knowledge to apply for themselves. I feel honored to guide them along the way.”


Paula shares her life with her son and her six other feathered and four-legged children.

Healing Modalities We Offer


Neuromuscular Therapy

A form of deep massage that is intended to reach nerves, ligaments, tendons, and other connective tissue. Some conditions it can help include sciatica, whiplash, carpal tunnel syndrome, TMJ, postural distortions, and thoracic outlet syndrome.


Esogetic Colorpuncture

The originator of Colorpuncture is a German scientist and naturopath named Peter Mandel. Esogetic Colorpuncture involves focusing colored light on acupuncture (and other) points on the skin in order to energize powerful healing impulses in our physical and energy bodies. Esogetic Colorpuncture uses light to heal. Light is subtle in effect, moves fast, and penetrates deeply into all the cells of the body. In a treatment, frequencies of colored light are focused on the skin using a hand-held acu-light tool with specially designed, handmade interchangeable glass rods that emit different colors of light through a focused tip. Each color consists of different wavelength frequencies of light and therefore communicates different energetic information. As the light is absorbed by the skin and transmitted along energetic pathways or meridians deep into the body, it stimulates intracellular communication, which supports healing.



Reiki is a Japanese healing art founded by Mikao Usui. It is done fully clothed, and it is noninvasive and nonmanipulative. During a session, the pure flow of energy is realigned within the body. It washes down, clearing obstructions and strengthening the flow of energy. Clients will draw only the amount of energy that is needed. The purpose of a session is to support healing. This is the benefit of receiving Reiki energy. Although it is impossible to predict a definitive outcome, all illnesses, conditions, and diseases can be helped with Reiki, whether physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual. Benefits may include mental clarity, pain relief, deep relaxation, decreased stress levels, and improved sleep, among countless other possible advantages. The number of sessions varies by the individual’s needs. Generally, it is recommended to start with three one-hour sessions.


Access Bars

Access Bars, created by Gary Douglas (founder of Access Consciousness), involves the activation of 32 points or “bars” around the head by light touch, which deletes or releases thought patterns that no longer serve a person―patterns involving all areas of one's life (healing, body, control, awareness, creativity, power, aging, money, and more). Each bar is associated with different aspects of one’s life, and each one stores the electromagnetic component of all the thoughts, ideas, attitudes, decisions, and beliefs that a person has ever had about anything. By touching each bar or a combination of bars, the solidified thoughts, feelings, and emotions associated with that aspect of one’s life can be released, and something new can arise.


Manual Lymph Drainage

This therapeutic massage, founded by Dr. Emil Vodder in 1932, is a rhythmic, pumping massage that speeds the removal of waste products by stimulating the lymphatic system. It is beneficial for stress release, swelling, bruising, injuries, fluid retention, acne, and eczema.


Cranio Sacral Therapy

Cranio sacral therapy directly influences the brain and spinal cord. This gentle, noninvasive, hands-on technique helps to detect and correct imbalances in the cranio sacral system, which might be the cause of sensory, motor, or intellectual dysfunctions. It can also be used as a treatment for pain, discomfort, and trauma.


Golden Rose Healing

The Golden Rose is aligned with the Lightbeings from the Rose Galaxy. The Lightbeings in conjunction with the Divine Mother, Ascended Masters and the Angelic Beings want to assist humanity. Teaching us how to raise our vibration to the highest frequency of Love. The Golden Rose Healing works directly upon the Lightbody, the individual’s physical, emotional and mental bodies. Supporting the individual and assisting the ascension process with grace, ease and comfort. Embrace a greater sense of joy, peace, love, abundance and a state of grace that is your true nature.
