After graduating from Algonquin College’s three year Massage Therapy program in 2005, Shawn has made it his goal to have an answer for any orthopedic “problem” that may present itself to him.
He loves finding solutions to managing and alleviating pain and/or discomfort in the puzzle that can sometimes be your body. Idiopathic (cause unknown) cases of chronic pain are especially gratifying to unravel.
Instead of sticking to a particular modality, He pulls a variety techniques from Craniosacral, Muscle Energy (esp. spine and pelvis), Positional Release, Myofascial (direct and myofascial stretching), TMJ (intra oral), some energetic methods, and of course Swedish massage.
Alternatively, for those who want to forget the world exists for an hour, the relaxation aspect of massage is very important. Shawn has spent years studying and practicing Meditation, and try find ways to incorporate this into bodywork and everyday life.
His interests include all things outdoors, Mixed martial arts, cooking and reading. Most of his spare time is spent with his wife, their daughter and beloved chocolate lab.
Shawn is available Monday-Friday, and can accommodate evening appointments.
