BODYWORKERS


NATHAN PAULUS
Bodyworker, Yoga & Tai Chi Instructor
Five Point Member-Owner

nathan@fivepointholistic.com

Nathan Paulus uses a combination of Shiatsu, Tui Na, Acupressure and Trigger point therapy in his sessions. His strong ability to sense and move energy comes from long-standing Yoga and Tai Chi practice.   Sessions usually favor deeper connection to the subtle body, or rehabilitating the muscular body and structural issues. The treatments almost always include some form of Yoga for diagnosis, treatment positions, homework and self-care. Nathan is a believer in an individual’s capacity for self-healing, rather than relying on the notion of being “fixed” by someone else.  His treatments are designed to improve and compliment the process of self- healing.


KATE FRUCHEY
Bodyworker
Five Point Practitioner

kate@fivepointholistic.com

Kate completed her training at McKinnon Body Therapy Center in Oakland, CA. While her practice is rooted in Swedish Massage and Craniosacral Therapy, she utilizes a wide range of techniques in her sessions, including Acupressure, Reflexology, and Tui Na. As a practitioner, Kate has a deep appreciation for the effect that relaxation and touch have on our health, and this approach informs all of her work, regardless of the techniques she is working with. Her aim is to provide bodywork that is not only relaxing and restorative but also productive and results-oriented.
