Paula brings to her practice and her classes a keen interest in the body and a fascination with the incredible resiliency of the human spirit.

In teaching others how to provide this link, Paula feels that she is able to contribute to the increased well-being of all mankind.

Directors Note:

Paula and Neha have taught locally since 1988. They developed and led the first Circulatory Massage Training Programs to be held at any Community College in the state of California at Mira Costa Community College and Irvine Valley Community College, as Paula and Neha see the need for healing in all levels of our society. The Healing Hands School grew out of their dedication to make healing arts available and affordable in a hands-on, practical skills approach.

The school is easily accessible to residents of North and South San Diego County and South Orange County communities. Healing Hands School classes offer comprehensive, professional training in a unique atmosphere of warmth and caring, which is integral to the healing process.
