Paula Bethune, RMT

I bring over 38 years of experience to my practice and draw from a wide range of post-graduate studies, integrating techniques according to each individual's needs. While my treatment style is focused and specific, my approach is holistic. 
Each session will include a series of assessments, allowing me to "Listen" to fascial relationships and "Follow" your body's innate wisdom as it leads us to the areas and the systems it needs to work with, and the order in which to do so.
My treatments are typically comprised of a variety of osteopathic techniques such as CranioSacral Therapy, Visceral Manipulation, Neural Manipulation, Visceral Vascular Manipulation or Muscle Energy Technique, blended with Fascial Release and/or possibly some Massage. 
I love having the opportunity of working together with my clients to help facilitate their own healing process. Patients appreciate my responsiveness to their comfort levels and needs. 
I work on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday afternoons.


Some of the techniques I frequently incorporate into my treatments include:
                  Visceral Manipulation - VM 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6,

VM Listening Techniques. 
Craniosacral Therapy - CST 1, 2, Somato-Emotional Release 1
Neural Manipulation - NM 1, 2, 3,  4

Visceral Vascular Manipulation - VVM Upper & VVM Lower Body
Muscle Energy Technique - MET (Soft tissue

pelvic, spinal and rib cage alignment)

TMJ Work - treatment of external & (with gloves if indicated & with patient consent) internal jaw complex

using NMT, VM, NM, VVM & CST techniques
