Paul Lewis Services Therapeutic Massage Clinic & Education Welcome to the site. I am a Registered Massage Therapist, Combined Decongestive Therapist (ADP Authorized) and Reflexologist. My colleagues are also registered in their fields of expertise. We are by appointment only, Flexible hours and we do make house calls. Send us an email if you have questions and yes, we do accept credit cards. We offer a variety of advanced workshops see Events. The clinic is equipped with electric tables, an Ultrasound machine and up-to-date technology. We also have a variety of items in the store including Gift Certificates, Topical pain relief and DVDs.
We have treated patients for various pathologies such as: GBS, Post Surgical Mastectomy, Plantar fasciitis, Runner’s Knee, Tennis elbow, Golfer’s elbow, Cervical issues, Frozen Shoulder, IBS, TMJ, Lymphedema, Piriformis syndrome, SI joint pain, Pregnancy, Oncology Massage…….We cannot prevent said specific condition. However, given the massage therapist’s scope of practice, we can help to maintain, rehabilitate and augment physical function in a person who is rendered dysfunctional by the condition.
As it’s important to keep an open line of communication, I have answers to questions that clients have texted or emailed me. Updates on how we’re handling the COVID-19 pandemic at the clinic. Our focus remains on the health and safety of all our clients and therapists during this time. Please read the following so we are all in alignment.
An important note on COVID-19:
COVID-19 is spread through respiratory droplets, it cannot be transmitted through sweat. For the past 11 years we have been using and will continue to use hospital grade disinfectant to maintain safe practices, we will continue to provide a safe environment. In addition, 8 years ago we started using gloves during our treatments and will continue to protect and provide quality service.
Health Precautions to take:
- Wash and disinfect your hands often
- Refrain from touching your face (mouth, nose, eyes)
- If a client feels sick or ill even runny nose we advise them to stay home
What Paul Lewis Services(clinic) www.paullewis.ca is looking like:
The clinic will stay open at the current time. We will continue to schedule clients with at least 15 to 30 minute time frame between clients. This gives us up to a 30 minute window to clean and disinfect rooms and surfaces.
If we are forced to close the clinic, due to mandated closures, we will comply with Canadian Law and Public Health Authorities, and do the right thing for our clients.
At this time we continue to stay open and provide high quality service.
Our cleaner has been shown to effectively kill the following pathogens within two to three minutes of contact:
14 Bacteria and Viruses cleaner Helps Prevent

A wide range of pathogens, including bacteria, viruses, and fungi, can be eliminated by regularly using disinfectant cleaner to thoroughly disinfect your surgical space and other key areas of your health care facility where the sharing of pathogens can be of concern.
Whether you’re stocking medical supplies for a hospital, surgery center, urgent care center, nursing home, dental practice, veterinary practice, or other, keeping surfaces clean and minimizing the risk of cross-contamination is a key concern for every health care facility.
What people are saying
Personally, I believe you've saved my career Paul! The 1st course I did with you opened my eyes to the fact that I'd got into such bad habits regarding my posture and "body mechanics" I'm now much more aware and have much less pain in my right wrist (which used to be a real problem if I did more than 1 massage in a day!) each course I've done with you has helped me cement those better habits just that little bit more... Although I don't feel like I'm totally there yet so please come again!

Paul is a wonderful healer and speaker. He has inspired me to move further forward on my journey both professionally and personally. Thanks for that Paul!
i Thoroughly enjoyed the seminar and would highly recommend it to all that i meet. i learned a lot and hope to attend many more.
I just took a 3 hour workshop with Paul and it was phenomenal! I wish it was longer, but I gained a lot of great information. Paul took the time to answer all questions and made sure they were clear and understood. He is a very knowledgable person and definitely an asset to our industry. He is someone worth taking a training with. So if you have the chance, take it! Thank you Paul for the great information and tools!!
I am really happy with your DVD. It has helped me with practicing techniques you taught at the workshop and I feel confident to go out and work with clients using chair massage. I feel it is a valuable tool to help learning correctly. Thank you once again for your help.
I'm actually watching your video right now. I'm really glad you made this video, because your body mechanics and style are excellent.
I was so touched by the music and I enjoyed your video that I am going to use the Lewis circle exercise for myself and clients.
As a Chinese acupuncturist...great techniques I use many of the techniques to help relax the client in the various areas before applying needles.
I personally use L Circles inbetween client sessions to re-focus and prevent stiffness in my upper body as I treat multipule clients back to back throughout the day. On a daily basis I suggest Lewis Circles to my MVA clients with head, neck, shoulder concerns who have pain and difficulty doing pendulum exercises due to additional lumbar issues.
Congratulations on such successful fundraisers, you have truly made a difference. Your gift will be used to support emergency relief and recovery operations in Japan, after the devastating 9.0 magnitude earthquake that struck on March 11th. As a dedicated supporter of the Canadian Red Cross, thank you for entrusting us with your generous donation.
This is a wonderfully thought out program. Even after having taken the Chair Massage workshop with Paul, I am able to peruse the DVD and review the areas I need to work on. Paul’s commentary in this chair massage program is quite insightful and easily understood. This is aldo a great DVD even for those that are not Registered Massage Therapists and just want to get some hands on experience with massage.
I'm a SC student, I just wanted to say, you did an awesome job on your "Dynamic Integrative Massage Techniques" video. I'm a visual learner, and honestly, I think I have taken out every single video from the SC library, but from all the videos, this one has helped me the most. Thank you so much!
