Sean Lymworth, RMT

Sean works primarily with fascia, the highly communicative network of connective tissue that's interwoven throughout your body. Working with your nervous system encourages the calm it needs to allow and integrate deeply transformative therapy. If your nervous system is freaking out because the treatment is too intense then your body won't be open to letting go of the protective patterns that you experience as decreased functionality or pain. Communication ensures that the treatment depth is 'just right' for your body.

Sean is passionate about empowering and getting you out of pain. Having sustained many injuries himself, he understands very well the challenges of pain and decreased functionality.

Nicole Berns, Thai Massage (NON REGISTERED)

Traditional Thai massage is an ancient healing system that combines broad and targeted acupressure, stimulation and manipulation of energy lines called sen, and assisted yoga postures. Treatment effects are enhanced when the patient is fully relaxed and breathing deeply. 

Traditional Thai massage rarely uses oils or lotions, and the recipient remains clothed during a treatment. There is constant body contact between the practitioner and client, but rather than rubbing on muscles, the body is compressed, pulled, stretched and rocked in order to clear energy blockages and relieve tension. The practitioner uses thumbs, palms, forearms, elbows, knees and feet to create a dance of movement on the body of the recipient. In this process, joints are opened, muscles and tendons are stretched, internal organs are toned, and energy is balanced. The overall effect is one of deep relaxation, rejuvenation, and physical and mental well being.
