Shawn is a compassionate care provider with a passion for treating musculoskeletal pain disorders as well as all diseases rooted in mind-body-spirit disharmony. He has a unique ability to connect and communicate with people on a personal level, as well as facilitate large group activities and programs. He enjoys learning from others, sharing knowledge, and inspiring positive human potential through community building and individual achievement. He is driven to provide the highest quality care possible and is continually honing his diagnostic and treatment skills.
Like most people, Shawn wants the world to be a better place. Throughout his own life he has found immense inspiration and healing from his love for the outdoors. His passion to help others experience these same benefits brought him to serve the community for over 2 decades as a Outdoor Adventure Pursuits Facilitator and EMT, working as a River Guide, River Safety Expert, Ski Patroller, and Wilderness First Aid Instructor. While dealing with some personal health challenges, he took a life-changing journey to the Himalayas which exposed him to traditional healing and disease prevention practices such as Yoga, Ayurveda, Acupuncture/TCM, and Meditation.
Seeing how practical and helpful these practices were, Shawn felt a deep desire to come back to Missoula and serve the community in a new, more fundamental way. With the level of illness apparent in our society today it is obvious that we need support in order to keep life from breaking us down. He believes we all inherently want the world to be a happier place with less pain and suffering…and more vitality, balance, cooperation, achievement, and peace. For this reason, Shawn seeks to improve the foundation of health in each of his patients, so they can return to being their very best.
