Massage is a huge part of our life and we know you will benefit from making it a part of your life too.
Hi I’m Paula, small business owner and mum. I am very aware life can be a balancing act and that’s exactly why I love helping provide balance in other peoples lives. We have so much going on these days that taking a little time off for yourself can seem difficult to schedule in but trust me once you do you will never look back.
The Epicurean is not so much a job, as a passion for me. I undertook my VCTC Level 3 training over 8 years ago to initially have a flexible job that would work around my life as a mum and uni life as a mature student (my degree is in Drama but I can fill you in on that part of my life during your appointment) I’ve never been able to walk away from massage, even after it had ‘served its purpose’. I spent the years after graduating massaging around my full-time job workig for a theatre company , but in 2019 I decided it was time to give in to my passion full time.
Once I made the choice, I undertook further training in key areas of my practice, and I continue to look at ways I can improve and provide the best service to all my clients.
In addition to meetinhg me my little Pug Rambo is often at work with me... normally fast asleep and relaxing!
About The Epicurean Ethos
A simple philosophy based on the ancient teachings of Greek philosopher Epicurus, and one adopted by our business.
The greatest good is to seek modest pleasures in order to attain a state of tranquillity, freedom from fear ataraxia (a state of serene calmness) and absence from aponia (The absence of bodily pain considered as a state of spiritual serenity)
We want all our customers to be relaxed and believe this is a balance between body and mind. Although you may book a specific treatment, we will always work with the client to look at what is appropriate for you. This may mean we bring in methods and techniques from other massage treatments to ensure you receive a bespoke service.
Here at The Epicurean we pride ourselves on providing a wide range of massage therapy specifically tailored to suit your needs. During the consultation period we will work closely with you to ensure that the treatment you choose is the one most beneficial to you. This can sometimes mean a combination of disciplines to create a bespoke treatment to best fit your needs. Offering a range of massage from Sports Massage to Prenatal and many in between. The Epicurean is based in Wakefield city centre making it easily accessible.
