Without a doubt one of the most disciplined athletes you will ever encounter; so much so, that he would be doing his corrective exercises in a hotel room after a long night out with the boys while everyone else was looking at him funny!
Taking long distance running to the n’th degree, Shawn is an avid runner and triathlete. Back in 2010, he had been training for the Ottawa marathon but succumbed to a drastic knee / hip / low back injury. This was devastating and happened 8 years ago. Even though he had dealt with some soccer-related issues in the past, this was not allowing him to run to the best of his abilities.
Shawn had consulted with dozens (literally) of professional therapists and doctors who were not providing long lasting solutions. Upon a referral from a friend, Shawn consulted with Melanie. Although doubtful, he complied and saw Mel.
“It was basically a miracle! Mel had modified my training routine and was able to pinpoint things that were not necessarily involved with my running but were contributing to the imbalances I had. In 3 sessions, my pain was GONE!”
What impressed him the most was the fact that she would “explain WHY everything was occurring and finding my other issues and making sure these were dealt with”. The body is one unit and should be treated as such.
“There was too much focus on the painful body parts in the past” but it became obvious that there were other issues that Shawn needed to deal with.
“I saw a massive transformation in my performance and saw many personal bests, one of them being a 1:34 pace ½ marathon in September 2018.” “I will be getting ready for the ½ Ironman and will be using you guys for maintenance!”. “I can’t find this type of treatment anywhere else!”
It’s a pleasure working with you Shawn and will be in your corner when the time comes! Cheers and run strong!
