Massage Therapy by Paula Matyka

About Paula Matyka, LMT

Paula has been practicing massage and bodywork since 2007. Highly skilled and passionate about her work, she constantly seeks to expand her knowledge and skills through seminars, study groups, and reading, ensuring she remains at the forefront of the latest developments in the field.

Sessions with Paula go beyond generalized massage and what’s commonly advertised today as deep tissue. What you’ll experience here is highly personalized, therapeutic bodywork. After assessing your posture and range of motion, Paula goes to work using a holistic approach to bring your body back to balance.

What to Expect From Your Massage

Treatments can include any mix of the following: Thai bodywork, MyoFascial Release, and various forms of soft tissue mobilization including, but not limited to: intuitive massage, trigger point therapy and muscle energy technique. Techniques are performed with care so that your body can release restrictions layer by layer, gradually getting to the root cause of your pain.

Anyone can benefit from this detailed, intuitive approach. Most notably those suffering from back pain, sciatica, neck/shoulder pain, and/or poor posture.

Thai bodywork is the physical branch of traditional Thai medicine. Techniques include deep massage, passive stretching, and rhythmic rocking. The primary focus is to free pathways of movement in the body.

Thai bodywork can be calming and very relaxing, but also holds the potential to be the most intense deep tissue work there is.

Massage and Bodywork Q & A

What is Myofascial Release?

Trauma, inflammatory responses, and/or surgical procedures can create myofascial restrictions, which can produce tensile pressures of approximately 2,000 pounds per square inch on pain-sensitive structures that may not show up in many standard tests, such as x-rays, myelograms, CAT scans, or electromyography.

Myofascial release is a hands-on technique that involves applying gentle, sustained pressure to the myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion.

Paula Matyka, LMT is certified in John F Barnes style of Myofascial release.

What is Soft tissue mobilization?

Soft tissue mobilization is a therapeutic massage technique that aims to improve range of motion, decrease swelling and edema, reduce pain, and restore or optimize muscle function.

Paula prefers to use slow, fluid, and intuitive strokes that allow her not only to feel where the body is restricted but also to release these restrictions at the body’s desired pace, without unnecessary discomfort or pain.

Paula Matyka, LMT is certified in various forms of soft tissue mobilization including, but not limited to Trigger Point therapy, Neuromuscular massage, and Muscle Energy Technique.

It is important to Paula that every client leave feeling like they had the best experience possible. Every massage given is unique and tailored to the client’s specific needs that day. That being said, she understands that needs can change session to session and so might her recommendations for aromatherapy, massage technique, and the use of hot/cold therapy.
