Therapeutic Consultations

Pain Free Living Bozeman Center for the Healing Arts

Paola specializes in the treatment of unresolved cases of chronic pain and discomfort, as well as acute pain and injury rehabilitation.


Your healing therapeutic consultation begins with a detailed intake of your particular injury, illness, or chronic pain situation. Depending on the modality best suited for you, assessment will be conducted via: deep body work, gait and ergonomic evaluation, and nutritional and lifestyle choices. Each therapeutic session builds upon the last one. Clients are often given homework between session to further effect change.

I have referred patients to Paola for migraine headaches and musculoskeletal problems. Her yoga and massage treatment programs have provided real benefits to these patients. Paola’s extensive knowledge, excellent skills and long experience make her a very important resource for my practice.

As a longterm skeptic about bodywork and similar interventions, I was astonished and delighted at Paola’s extraordinary skill as a healer. During a Himalyan trek, in a matter of moments, she healed my swollen painful knee so I could walk and up and down steep Himalayan hillsides without swelling or pain. My knee had been bothering me for years. With a simple stretch, Paola taught me to heal myself. I look forward to many more years of pain free trekking, hiking, and mountaineering.

I know it is time to see Paola when I start feeling like a toy action figure that’s been in the hands of a two year old all day. Paola nimbly realigns my limbs and joints, putting everything back to where it’s supposed to be.
