Paul Bandong, LMT

Welcome, my name is Paul.

I graduated from the Academy of Professional Careers: Holistic Health in 2004 in La Mesa, California, and I’ve been practicing for 20 years. In my time, I am grateful to have cultivated diverse skills and tools that help me support my client’s wellness goals from a holistic standpoint. Each time you see me, I’ll be happy to meet you where you are that day.

I work in a medium-heavy pressure range, but I only work at levels that are safe for you to receive. I don’t believe my clients should ever have to struggle to get through a massage because the pressure is painful. The clients that book with me are looking for slower paced, thorough bodywork that is both relaxing and therapeutic. I really enjoy working on the upper and lower back, and specialize in niche requests, such as the psoas. While I have a more clinical approach to my work, I do like to facilitate the Citrus Mint Foot Scrub because it smells great and my clients leave feeling refreshed.

I look forward to working with you on your journey to enhanced wellness!

Client Review: “Paul is such an amazing therapist!!! If I could give him 10 stars, I most certainly would. Such a beautiful spirit on top of really knowing his stuff and making someone come away with not only relaxation but also less pain…a gift to be sure. Thank you!” -Laurie N.
