She began her massage therapy education in 2009 while studying abroad in Munich, Germany at the Staatliche Berufsfachschule für Massage am Klinikum (Großhadern campus).

shawn

Shawn Prosser, Registered Chiropodist, B.A. Kin, D.Ch.
Education & Training: Shawn Prosser graduated from the Michener Institute in 2015 after completing a kinesiology degree at the University of Western Ontario. Shawn always had a keen interest in working in healthcare, often contemplating physiotherapy, nursing, or medical school. Shawn eventually found his calling as a chiropodist. He found the profession appealing as it had such a broad scope of practice, dealing with diabetics, athletic injuries, wound care, biomechanical assessments as well as minor surgical procedures.


Areas of Practice: Shawn splits his time between clinics but has found a home at Park Road Physiotherapy and Foot Clinic. Here he is allowed to practise his full scope of offerings while still having the ability to refer patients to a wide variety of practitioners. He has taken a keen interest in biomechanical assessments and gait analysis, utilizing traditional root and soft tissue stress theories to develop appropriate orthotics for patients. Additionally, Shawn enjoys seeing his diabetic patients on a regular basis to further emphasize the importance of appropriate foot health practices and help answer any questions they may have.


The flexibility of the Park Road Physiotherapy and Foot Clinic staff allows him to provide diabetic foot care to some of Ontario’s northernmost communities and reserves. He works closely with SOADI (Southern Ontario Aboriginal Diabetic Initiative) as well as NAN (Nishnawbe Aski Nation) to provide foot-care and diabetic education to those without easy access to such care.

Outside of the clinic Shawn remains focused on living a healthy, active lifestyle. He participates in many recreational sports leagues, enjoys being outdoors, walking his small beagle (Willow), and making time for friends and family.
