"... MS (Multiple Sclerosis) causes the body to attack the brain and central nervous system. It creates plaques or lesions to the sheath (Myelin) of the nerves. This causes messages from the brain to the muscles to become garbled and thus creates all the painful sensations that I feel. Pamela has introduced (moving) Cupping into our sessions, primarily working on my lower back and legs. This seems to give me relief from the stiffness of the muscles, no matter how long it lasts, it might be a day or even a few days. When I go into her office with stiffness and pain she explains very clearly which muscles she will be working on to help relieve the pain and stiffness. The atmosphere in her office is very calming because I trust her. I know she can't cure me but she certainly works hard to give me relief from pain. She's 4 stars in my book! L.K., Grass Valley, CA
"After our visit, there was a constant unwinding of my poor body as the musculature and all else began to remember where it had always been. ...The turning point was my visit with you for which I am overly grateful. Guidance to get me to you was the best ever! You are a special angel. I am blessed to have met you, with your true integrity showing in your space and work." L.S., Paradise, CA
"Pamela's treatment is unlike any other I have had before. She listens and questions to assess issues, and is thoughtful in her approach to the treatment needed to achieve release and restore function. Each session is individual and caters to my needs that particular day. I highly recommend her work." J.M., Grass Valley - Pilot & Equestrienne
"Pamela ... or should I call you the Miracle Worker!
I benefited so much from your treatment yesterday that today I was able to walk two miles. I haven't been able to walk even a quarter of a mile recently, so I am delighted. Thanks so much." K.S., Nevada City, CA - Equestrienne & GCTC Trails Builder
"My physician recommended massage as treatment for low back pain. I checked on the reputation of various individuals in the Grass Valley / Nevada City area, and Pam's reputation stood out. After one visit, I experienced some relief and even more in subsequent visits. She found sore spots on my body of which I was completely unaware and through her massage, reduced soreness and stiffness.
I've never had a massage like hers and am grateful that her healing hands could produce such dramatic results. I also appreciate that she teaches and explains as she goes along. Most importantly, she suggests exercises I can do at home now and in the future as a preventative measure. Being able to exercise, play tennis and walk while being pain-free is wonderful."

"As a dancer over the last 30 years I have had lots of massages in many cities all over the world. A couple of years ago a good friend introduced me to Pamela Bryars and after my first session with her I can say that her massage is the best that I have experienced. After the session I felt as if I had a "body transplant". I had increased flexibility, relief from the pain of tight muscles, a straighter spine, true hip alignment, and I could move my neck more freely than I had in several years. Unlike many other massages where I felt good for only a day or two, these were lasting results. Not only did others notice how much my dancing had improved, but I noticed how much better I felt overall. Pamela truly has a "healing" gift, so if you want to improve your physical performance and overall feeling of well being you must visit her. You will be very happy you did". T.C., Houston TX - Ballet Dancer
