My full name is Sean Zhi-Hsiung Li, I graduated from Centennial College's 3 year Massage Therapy course in the summer of 2012 and became a Registered Massage Therapist in the winter of 2013.
I have experience treating a variety of conditions and ailments including sports massage, thoracic outlet syndrome, carpal tunnel, pre/post-natal and many more.
I have also furthered my studies by learning Soft Tissue Release (STR), Strain/Counter-Strain, and Lymphatic Drainage (Vodder- Level 1).
After I graduated, I wanted to explore the aspects of a mobile practice and since then I have started a mobile Massage Therapy practice; where I provide safe and effective treatments for clientele who may not have time or are not able to travel to a clinic for treatments.
I became a Massage Therapist because I enjoy helping people and seeing positive changes in health with my clients.
I currently am registered as a Massage Therapist with the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario (CMTO) and a member of the Registered Massage Therapists' of Ontario (RMTAO).
My interests include playing tennis, jogging and technology.
I am currently working at

Deep Tissue Massage reaches deeper layers of muscles. It is used to break down knots and relieve pressure points throughout the body. This massage is beneficial for athletes and those who sit for long periods of time.
The goal of Swedish Massage is to melt away muscle tension and increase the blood flow to your heart. Swedish Massage is extremely therapeutic as it decreases muscle toxins, increases oxygen levels in the blood, and improves flexibility in the body.
Helps prevent and treat injuries, improve flexibility, and enhance athletic performance, sports massage can be used by athletes of all abilities to prepare for or recover from athletic or sports events. Even if you aren't an athlete, sports massage may help muscle pain or restricted range of motion.
A: Massage can be beneficial to people of all ages and with all sorts of conditions. Some conditions that may be treated are:
A: The practice of massage therapy is regulated under the Regulated Health Professions Act, 1991 (RHPA) and is therefore a Regulated Health Profession. Only individuals who have completed the requisite training and have met the strict competency requirements of the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario (CMTO) can call themselves a "Massage Therapist" or a "Registered Massage Therapist".
A: On the first treatment, I will arrive 30 minutes early and have you fill out a confidential health history form, along with a privacy consent form. It is important to inform me of any health conditions or medications you are currently taking. To fully understand your condition and pain, I will ask a few questions along with some functional testing (Range of motion, muscle tests, and special tests). With all this information, this will allow me to design a treatment plan that will achieve your goals and help you return to normal function as soon as possible.
A: I always recommend drinking a lot of water after a massage. This will help you keep you and your muscles hydrated, remove any metabolic wastes, as well as bring nutrients to your muscles around the body. Another thing you can do is an Epsom salt bath; these are magnesium salts that help soothe muscles by drawing out wastes through the skin. Epsom salts will reduce stiffness and soreness the following day. This is usually done after a massage or workout for 30 minutes.
A: If you are uncomfortable with your body, let me know. It is possible to treat you with your clothing on; direct skin contact is best with lotion or oil. I will only undrape areas I am working on at the time. Alternately I can bring client scrubs that open from the back and allow me to treat the back (like the ones from hospitals).
A: You don’t HAVE to do your self care, but it definitely will help you on the road to recovery (instead of taking 3 weeks to become better, you may find yourself feeling better in 1-2 weeks). If you find that you don’t have time to do the stretches/strengthening, try working it into your daily routine; either before or after sleeping.
