Rolfing @ Health Rediscovered, Glasgow
Rolfing is a method of deep tissue bodywork combined with movement education. Together these two approaches aim to balance the body so it can move more freely and be more comfortable.
Rolfing addresses patterns and tension that can develop as a result of trauma, work demands, or postural habits, to restore a more efficient and easier alignment. Whilst a person may have pain in a particular place, Rolfing recognises the interrelatedness of the body and so treats the entire structure through a systematic approach called the ‘ Ten Series’.
Benefits of Rolfing include, improved posture, improved flexibility and range of movement, enhancing the ease of breathing, releasing painful holding patterns and managing acute and chronic pain from past injuries.

Reflexology @ Health Rediscovered Glasgow
Reflexology is a complementary therapy that is based on the theory that different points and areas on the feet, lower leg, hands, face and ears correspond with different areas of the body. Reflexology is an ancient therapy which has been practised for over 5000 years and reflexologists believe that working these points or areas can help aid relaxation, improve mood, release tension, enhance sleep and can generally help improve wellbeing; allowing us to cope better with the stresses that life can bring.
Limbic Reflexology @ Health Rediscovered Glasgow
The limbic brain networks are at the centre of the regulatory processes that we call homeostasis. The complex networks of the limbic system continually monitor and respond to internal and external environments, in such a way as to optimise our survival and adaptation to changes.
Limbic Reflexology provides insights into the complex processes of the brain, and offers a range of new brain reflex areas, and the techniques for working those areas.
Working new precision reflex areas in the feet, using specific techniques, we can now connect with the brain networks that underpin many disabling conditions. These reflex areas are pinpoint areas, and so with an understanding of the underlying neurobiology and pathology of a condition, very specific treatment protocols may be established.
Bamboo Massage @ Health Rediscovered Glasgow

Hara (Abdominal) Massage @ Health Rediscovered, Glasgow
An ancient, traditional massage that focuses on the centre of our bodies – our abdomens. This area of our bodies houses our vital organs, a complex interconnected collection of organs including the stomach, spleen, liver, gall bladder, intestines both large and small, bladder and reproductive organs for females.
It is a gentle, deep, rhythmic massage that allows these organs to be soothed, which in turn sooths our nervious system so is a wonderful treatment for stress as well as more physical issues such as GORD, Hernia, infertility, heart burn and of course IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome).
Paula often combines this treatment with acupuncture to further support an improvement in your health and well-being.
