In 2011, licensed massage therapist Paul Young saw that something was missing in his chosen profession. An avid student and connoisseur of massage therapy, Paul understood that the most meaningful and longest-lasting stress relief came from holistic treatments, rather than the symptom-based approach so prevalent within the industry. His vision of a massage experience that would unite the disparate elements of mind, body, and spirit finally came to fruition when he took it upon himself to found Pebble Creek Massage.
Today, Paul continues to earn new fans as a result of his shared focus on physical and spiritual relaxation. He begins each session with a thorough consultation before carefully kneading and stretching muscles to soften aches, stimulate blood flow, and heal injuries sustained while hiding from bosses in the office trash compactor.
