Paul Lewis B.A, R.M.T.--N.C.B.T.M.B. #451183-09, C.M.T.O. (Canada), F.H.T. (Europe)
Born in London, England; now resides in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
Paul Alexander Lewis is first and foremost an educator. Paul believes there should be no secrets, and "tricks of the trade" need to be shared with other therapists for their own sake and to benefit clients. He is a registered massage therapist, a CMTO- (Canada), NCBTMB- (U.S.), FHT- (Europe) accredited and approved provider.
Paul is a graduate of Sutherland-Chan School and Teaching Clinic, in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. He experiences include Swedish massage techniques, joint mobilizations, muscle energy techniques, myofascial release techniques, orthopedic assessments, remedial exercise as well as other subjects and modalities. His diverse clinical experiences include high-risk pregnancy and postpartum; strains, sprains, low-back pain and stress management; spinal cord injury and senior care; as well as treating hundreds of patients with other challenging conditions, such as Guillain-Barré syndrome, hemiplegia, leg-lengthening, post-surgical management of implants, lumpectomy, mastectomy and hip replacements to name a few. Paul has developed his own unique and effective treatment style called Dynamic Angular Petressage (DAP). On account of his approach to treatment, he receives many referrals to his Toronto clinic from surgeons (breast cancer), orthodontists (for TMJ) and—the biggest compliment—from other registered massage therapists with difficult cases.
Paul is an international presenter, combining his knowledge and experience into interactive and informative workshops and seminars, with a focus on biomechanics and technique allowing you to practice massage therapy with ease and grace and without strain on your body. Paul has presented and is scheduled to instruct upcoming workshops in Canada, the U.S., Japan, China and England.
Paul created and is featured in his Telly Award-winning Multi-lingual In-Chair Massage Instructional DVD available worldwide at www.paullewis.ca
He is a CanFitPro Certified Fitness Instructor with more than two decades of experience in fitness instruction. Paul's experience as a dancer, athlete, fitness instructor and Aikido (Japanese Martial Arts First Degree Black Belt) training has allowed him firsthand insight into the intrinsic artistic movements of the body. He has a degree in math and commerce and a diploma in e-commerce. His artistic flair, coupled with his technical skills, gave him the winning combination to create the safe, effective and fun self-care exercise, "Lewis Circles exercise" as seen on YouTube.
