Paula chapman

Advanced Clinical Massage Therapist

I’m a skilled and compassionate Advanced Clinical Massage therapist providing tailored and intuitive treatments focusing on the needs of my clients. Specialising in the treatment of pain and injury, I’m committed to helping people out of pain or reducing it significantly enough to help improve the quality of life.

Most of my clients have come to me via word of mouth recommendations and over the years I’ve treated a variety of conditions and complaints. Whether it’s muscular pain or stiffness from sitting at a computer, a chronic pain condition such as frozen shoulder, tennis elbow, low back or temporomandibular joint (TMJ) pain, an injury or stress and tension, I can really help you to reduce your pain, improve range of movement and always to relax.

I take a holistic approach, considering the whole person, accounting for physical, mental and social factors which impact how we feel. My treatments integrate a powerful and impactful blend of Eastern and Western techniques including trigger point therapy, myofascial release, hot and cold stone therapy, amma fusion, acupressure and sports massage techniques.

Using my knowledge of anatomy and a listening touch I use the most appropriate techniques for each treatment. I also provide valuable after-care advice on movement and exercise to help equip you with the knowledge to continue your treatment at home.

As a response to the Covid pandemic I have diversified my practice to provide online self-care sessions. These can be both 1 to 1 and for small groups or teams. A perfect way for those who may not have the time to visit, or those who may be high risk, isolating or who live further afield to experience the benefits of what I do.

My peaceful home-based treatment room is situated in Hanover, Brighton with on-street pay parking. I also practice at the Holistic Health Clinic, Brighton and regularly visit a local care assisted home to treat residents.


Advanced Clinical Massage is ideal for treating musculoskeletal pain, specific conditions and injuries. The focus is to help you out of pain or to reduce it significantly enough to improve your quality of life, increase range of motion and improve posture and movement.

 Words from my clients

I come out feeling a different person

“I am a 68 year old woman with severe neck, arm and shoulder pain. I went to see Paula in the hope that she could help me. I have been having regular (Covid interrupted) massages ever since. Indeed Paula’s targeted massages have really helped me to be relatively pain free as well as helping my general well-being. The exercises she has given me to do at home have really helped keep the work going in between sessions. She is highly professional, empathetic, a great listener and her hands always find the knots to iron out and I come out feeling a different person.”

After a few sessions with Paula I felt that I had increased my flexibility

“After an episode of sciatica, I was left with some pain and stiffness in my lower back with some nerve pain in my leg. Paula was recommended to me to reduce these symptoms. She carefully listened to my symptoms so that she could target the hot stone massage where it was needed. After a few sessions with Paula I felt that I had increased my flexibility and reduced my pain and stiffness. Visiting once a month really helps my lower back and has reduced my symptoms. Paula is friendly and welcoming whilst ensuring that she listens to what you need and then targets the areas that are causing the symptoms.”

I’m back to running pain free!

“After three amazing massages the tenderness and tension in my hip has eased. I can’t believe the difference. I’m back to running pain free! Thanks Paula”

Sarah, D

Paula is one of the best bodyworkers I have experienced

“Paula is one of the best bodyworkers I have experienced. She has a depth of knowledge of the body along with intuitive awareness for your sensitivity. I also felt completely comfortable asking for what I needed. I had a terrible crick in my neck which caused prohibited movement and a lot of pain. Paula expertly released the muscles holding the tension along with muscles I never even knew I had”

An hour of calm in a world of craziness!

“Paula has been treating me for two years, amazing lady, amazing intuition, amazing connectivity, an hour of calm in a world of craziness!!! Thank you”

Domingo S

I can’t recommend Paula enough!

“As someone who has a previous whiplash injury and spends long days at the computer, I often suffer from a tight and painful back, neck and shoulders. Finding Paula was a god send! I have been to plenty of chiropractors and massage therapists over the years but Paula is hands down the best I’ve experienced. I regularly have a clinical massage and immediately feel my muscles begin to relax and pain relieved. It gives my body a total reset with the added benefit of improved posture and a fantastic nights’ sleep after seeing her. I can’t recommend Paula enough! Thank you.”

Erika, T

She has been a true life saver for me

“I have been seeing Paula for over a year now for regular massage treatments. She has been a true lifesaver for me, helping me to overcome balance and migraine issues and shoulder damage. Her treatments were the only thing I could do for a long time and her sensitivity and professionalism helped to piece me back together. I would highly recommend her.”


I appreciate her advice on how to deal with my tight hamstrings

“I’ve been seeing Paula regularly for hot stone massage for some time now. I find it particularly helps with the neck and shoulder aches I get from sitting at a desk all day and as a runner I appreciate her advice on how to deal with my tight hamstrings and hips as well.” Claire E
