Our Massage Therapists
Paul has over 13 years of massage experience, which started in Wellington after he completed his massage training at the NZ College of Massage. He worked in Wellington for five and a half years and then moved up to the Bay of Plenty and has built a new business doing what he loves.
Paul blends together traditional Chinese acupressure (which focuses on releasing and relaxing the spine and whole body) and modern Swedish Massage techniques, creating a truly unique and very effective treatment for the whole body. His work focuses on aligning the body’s bio-mechanics and releasing the muscles that are affecting its functionality and that are causing pain and discomfort. Each session is tailored to the individual needs of the client. Paul is genuine, caring and approachable. Whether you just want to relax, de-stress and re-balance or you have a deep-seated, chronic, long-term problem, he can help you.
Paul leads a busy, active lifestyle with a small farm near Matata, nearby fishing spots and the great outdoors of the Bay to explore. He is passionate about nature, the environment, personal growth and the never- ending experiences life has to offer.
Massage Practitioner (Certified 2004, NZCM)
Traey trained in massage in 2004 and initially worked part time from home in Kawerau. This suited life while busy parenting. Then life took a detour and while massaging, she trained to teach. She taught for ten years, first in primary, then Early Childhood.
During the last year of teaching, she experienced a very strong “calling” back to massage. She walked away from teaching and has spent the last year at Beauty & The Beach, relearning and redeveloping her massage skills.
Tracey prefers to take a holistic approach with massage and became very curious about where your complaint began. As Dr. Ida Rolf once stated, “Wherever you think the problem is, it ain’t.” Through massage a new interest has blossomed….her curiosity about bone. This led her into Zero Balancing and learning about interface touch, aimed at putting balance back in the body, through work with the bone. Tracey is very excited about this new modality and loves the change it has made to her massage work, as well as the results Zero Balancing is bringing to her clients.
