Paula VanBaalen first got introduced to the world of massage therapy at the age of 12 years old as alternative treatment for an auto accident. Ever since then, she knew she wanted to be a massage therapist.. and a teacher. 

Today this dream is a reality. Paula has a passion for education and helping others become the healthiest, happiest version of themselves possible. At Ohana School of Massage, she is able to combine these passions to help create the next generation of massage therapists. 


Paula graduated with her A.A.S in Massage Therapy in 2009. Since then, she has taken over 500 hours of continuing education classes. She believes that growth and continual education are essential to serving others at the highest level possible. 
Paula opened her Ohana Therapeutic Massage in Hibbing in 2012 and expanded to be a multi-therapist clinic in 2013.
