“Paula has such a great energy and showed tremendous care during all of my treatments.  She really took the time to understand where my discomfort was and gave me options, educated me, but also gave me the space to just relax.  She provides the perfect blend of care, compassion and love. I miss having her in Portland!”- Elise Parker
