More about

PAULA WILSON-YOUNG:

acupuncture, pregnancy massage, abdominal massage.

BSC HONS, BA HONS, MBACC.

My interest in complementary therapies was ignited while living in South Korea. I attended a daily exercise class, similar to yoga, and also began having massages, acupuncture and other energy work (quite like Reiki). As my time in South Korea came to an end, I wanted to keep my connection to the healing arts going and looked into how I could turn what I valued into a career.

THERAPIES AVAILABLE

Golden Acupuncture model

This was the start of my most important journey, from my Honours level Psychology Degree at Strathclyde (2001) onto Salford University (2007) to study for a Bachelor in Science Degree (again with Honours) in Traditional Chinese Medicine (Acupuncture). While at Salford, I added to all this with certificated courses in Swedish Massage and Indian Head Massage.

After 4 years, I achieved my ambition and was a qualified therapist, but I knew there was even more to learn. I could feel it. So, I travelled east again, this time to the People’s Republic of China and the world-renowned Beijing Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Here, I completed the Beijing International Acupuncture Training Course and benefited immeasurably from working in the home of acupuncture.

With further training in facial acupuncture, specialised weight management and numerous courses to assist with enhancing fertility and treating pregnancy-related concerns, I am always continuing my professional development. Nothing pleases me more than expanding and refining my knowledge and understanding of the human body and its routes to health, and seeing how this knowledge helps others.

“Paula is a fantastic therapist. She is always professional, very approachable, keen to help and offer advice when asked. She always makes you feel important and at ease when being treated. I have had no hesitation in recommending Paula to my friends and family.”

“I found Paula very friendly which makes the treatment comfortable and more relaxing”

“Paula really helped me. Having struggled to conceive for a year, I fell pregnant after only a few months of accupuncture. Paula is very knowledgeable and professional while being extremely friendly and easy to talk to. I couldn’t recommend her highly enough.”

“Paula gave me acupuncture in my late stages of pregnancy – found it really relaxing and totally worthwhile. Would definitely have it again!”

“Can say without a doubt that acupuncture saved my life after many years of suffering!”

“Paula changed my life and I will always be grateful to her”

“I have already recommended Paula to a few friends, her advice was excellent. Very professional and friendly.”

MY INTERESTS

As a therapist, my previous training in psychology gives me considerable insight into ‘mental health’ problems, including depression, anxiety & stress.

I also enjoy the challenges of pain management – nothing is better than seeing someone get up from the bed and instantly feeling better!

Of course, getting a picture of a tiny baby in the arms of a brand-new family always warms my wee heart too, so I can’t help but love working to assist fertility.

I’ve had the privilege of working with individuals with paralysis from neck injuries within Southern General Hospital, which I have found to be both rewarding and challenging.

I’m fortunate that all the different areas of my work bring so much joy and release from suffering.

In March 2012, I appeared on the MacAuley & Co show on BBC Radio Scotland to help listeners get a better understanding of Traditional Acupuncture – even got to treat the staff live on air!

In 2014, I took the huge leap and opened my very own clinic in the heart of Glasgow city centre and am loving the new challenges that brings (paperwork!)

In September 2016, I was interviewed by the Daily Mail. They wanted to know all about cupping, and what it can do, following the spark of interest created by the Olympic athlete.

I currently work part-time at Health Rediscovered offering sports & remedial massage, while continuing to learn new skills to enable me to provide an even broader range of treatments.

A little about Michelle

Of course I am incredibly passionate about my work, aiding pain relief and improving range of movement, using my skills as a sports & remedial massage therapist.

Outside of work, I am married to Paula – and love that we get to work together to help improve the quality of life of so many people.

I have two wee crazy dogs, and love going to walks in the countryside or down at the beach. I must confess I also love snuggling on the sofa watching the telly and snuggling with by wee balls of fluff!.

Most recently I have discovered true pleasure in rugby, I have joined a local club (Bishopton Rugby club) and train twice a week (when Uni commitments allow!) – and can’t wait to play my first proper game – COME CHEER ME ON!!!

I am passionate about having FUN in life – and don’t think it should be taken too seriously! I have been described by my patients as a ‘typical Glasgow lass’ and not the ‘typical’ therapist (whatever that is!?)
