Lynn Wind, RMT, LMT
2011 Massage Therapy Hall of Fame Inductee
With over 40 years of practicing and teaching as a massage therapy professional, I have a passion for teaching and encouraging the student of massage to reach their full potential personally and professionally.
After completing my training to become a massage therapist in Canada in 1978, I could see the potential for students to discover who they were and how they could become the best massage therapists possible. Eager to help others build their skills in massage therapy I began as a teacher at The Canadian College of Massage and Hydrotherapy (CCMH). After nine years as the Clinical Director and a classroom instructor (1979 - 1988), an opportunity presented itself to become the owner, with my late husband Peter, of The Hawaiian Islands School of Massage (HISM). We sold everything and moved from Toronto to Kailua-Kona Hawaii. It was a challenge I could not pass up.
While serving as Clinical Director at CCMH I developed the Lynn Wind Method of Intergrated Medical Massage Therapy, a unique assessment and treatment program incorporating specialized soft-tissue techniques, joint and myofascial mobilizations and rehabilitative exercises.
Once we took over ownership of HISM in 1988 I was able to further expand and develop The Lynn Wind Method and position it as the foundation for world class training at our school.
Owning the school was an extraordinary adventure. We graduated hundreds of students who are now successfully practicing in many countries all over the world.
Now I am taking my years of expertise on the road, embracing a 'school without walls', offering consulting services, workshops and spa treatment and training programs.
