It is from a life dedicated to sport and fitness that her passion for the human body and movement developed. Turning this passion into a career, Shawna obtained her Bachelor of Kinesiology and Masters of Physiotherapy from McMaster University. Shawna continues to expand her knowledge and learn new techniques and has completed several additional training courses over the past 10 years including the McMaster Contemporary Medical Acupuncture Course, Active Release Techniques™ courses, cupping massage, and manual therapy courses.
