“I personally have experienced the success, increased concentration, and productivity massage treatments provide to employees when given during office hours when I was working as a mobile massage therapist in London and I want to give your employees the same experience.

I have also worked at various event and exhibition venues, including London Fashion Weekend, The National Wedding Show, Ideal Home Show, Royal Ascot, and Salon International to name a few, and I am confident that massage treatments have always been especially popular at such events."

Paola Napolitano - Dipl. Massage Therapist ( specialized in Reflexology)

Paola has been a remedial massage therapist since 2018, after deciding to integrate her experience as a professional dancer with a more in-depth knowledge of anatomy and physiology. She first obtained a Level 3 Holistic Massage qualification from the London School of Massage in 2018, then a Level 5 Diploma in Sports and Soft Tissue Remedial Massage from the North London School of Sports Massage in 2020, and a Level 5 Diploma in Reflexology from the Richdales Institute in London in 2021.

Karolina Pomichalkova -Dipl. Massage Therapist (specialized in Shiatsu)


Working with people, connecting with them, and supporting them to unlock their full potential to achieve their goals has always been Karolina’s passion. She believes massage to be a tool, a form of meditation through which one can reconnect with their inner self, creating space for finding new approaches, solutions, and answers to life situations.

“Massage provides the opportunity to free ourselves from the daily distractions and help us to focus on what really is important.”

Before receiving her degree as a Shiatsu Therapist and opening her private practice in April 2022, Karolina worked in Zurich for a corporate organization and prior to moving to Switzerland, worked as a Caseworker and Project manager in Caritas Prague, Czech Republic.

Throughout her professional and personal experience, she learned the importance of regular self-care and witnessed the positive effects it has on one's mental and physical health.

“Research shows that even 5 minutes a day of a conscious self-care practice such as breathing exercise, for example, has a profound effect on your health. I love that Think Balance! brings this opportunity for self-care right to the workspace, so everyone has the possibility to do something positive for their health.”

Karolina joined the “Think Balance!” team in September 2022 and is excited to share her experience and skills to support and improve the work-life balance of its clients.
