Campbell River wellness practice takes new Form

Expanded services include registered massage, acupuncture and yoga!

As Registered Massage Therapist Lindsay Cawston reflected on how far her busy Campbell River practice had come, she was also excited to realize how much more her team could do in an expanded space.

From that reflection, Form. Wellness+Studio was born, offering the community a comprehensive wellness resource that today includes not only advanced therapeutic massage but also acupuncture and yoga in a safe, comfortable and relaxing environment.

A long history of wellness

The clinic first opened as Discovery Passage Massage Therapy in 1990, with Cheryl Hebb providing deep tissue massage. Over the years the practice grew, attracting the talents of Registered Massage Therapist James Smith and, later, Lindsay, who fell in love with Campbell River and was excited to purchase the practice in 2010.

As Lindsay next welcomed RMTs Rob Marrison, Terri Storey and Tenille Tellman, who shared her love of educating and empowering patients in their journey to better heath, it became clear more space was needed.

Expanded space brings expanded offerings

Expanding their space earlier this year, Form. Wellness+Studio has also expanded its services.

“We’ve been fortunate to round out our therapeutic approach with Sean Lymworth, RMT, plus Registered Acupuncturist Laura Heslin and Occupational Therapist Martina Forster, making Form. Wellness+Studio a truly multidisciplinary practice able to cater to the community’s various therapeutic needs,” Lindsay says.

Even the name – Form Wellness and Studio – better reflects what the team offers.

“The word ‘Form’ has many meanings,” Cawston reflects. “To combine to create something. A frame on which something is shaped. To shape or develop through discipline. To become. To us, it represents the coming together of like-minded people, in an effort to create a space for the community to heal, strengthen and rejuvenate.”

The yoga connection

With this newfound space came an opportunity to also offer yoga in-house as a form of remedial exercise.

“We often recommend yoga to patients as a way to strengthen and create flexibility, and now we can streamline what’s offered,” Lindsay says. “We’re not only offering yoga. We’re able to offer a controlled menu of classes that appeal to various injuries and chronic ailments the clinic has treated for close to three decades.”

Classes are tailored to the dynamic in the room and focused on participants’ needs, in addition to the classic yoga classes Campbell Riverites know.

“Many of our instructors have other designations on top of 200 to 800 hours of yoga instruction. We have RMTs, Neuro Occupational Therapists, Personal Trainers and instructors trained specifically in Somatics – functional movement – so don’t be surprised if you leave with homework!” Lindsay says.

“Our hope is to welcome those with injuries and musculoskeletal issues to practice yoga in a setting that caters to their specific needs, as well as a place for seasoned yogis to expand their practices and learn how their bodies can move and change in safe, effective ways to heighten their yoga experience.”

Coming up, Form is also excited to begin offering direct billing in the new year. To learn more, visit formwellness.ca or stop by 204-1040 Shoppers Row, and stay up-to-date with all of Form’s happenings on Facebook.
