Winnipeg, MB
​VP of Block Therapy
Lead Block Therapist ​

​Quinn Castelane

Quinn has always been interested in sports and fitness. At a young age he started weight training at his high school gym. As results were coming fast, it quickly became his new focus. At the age of 18, Quinn was introduced to Block Therapy. As he felt and saw dramatic changes after only a couple session, this became his new addiction.

Quinn started to combine Block Therapy into his bodybuilding routine. After years of taking copious amounts of supplements, he was given a challenge; to quit all supplements and to make Block Therapy his only focus. This is what changed everything for him. These are only some of the results he gained from this challenge – improved muscle recovery, improved muscle pump in the gym, symmetry & proportion. “When you understand the fascia system, do the work, and make it a habit, you become your own health advocate. This is how you gain control of your body.”

Holistic Nurse Practitioner

Shelley Elhatton, RN

Shelley Elhatton has been a registered Nurse since 1982. She has traveled extensively and has worked abroad with her nursing career. She was extremely fortunate to be immersed in many holistic modalities. Shelley understood long ago that a dis-ease in the body, was simply that. She has always looked at the body as a whole, rather than the “hole” in the body. She has come to believe that the medical society needs to attach a name or diagnosis to the symptoms.

Spending a lifetime assisting others, and like many in health care, she forgot about her own self care. Overtime chronic pain issues in her back became apparent. She experienced a car accident at 30 years of age, which followed the diagnosis or fibromyalgia. This lead her on a search to find a “cure” and feel well again. Unfortunately despite the many wonderful modalities she came across and some she studied in depth, the results were not long lasting. The accumulation of time and having three abdominal surgeries, eventually resulted on being on disability.

Lea Stillinger

​Montreal, QC
​Block Therapy ​Therapist

​​Lea Stillinger

​For over 15 years, I have studied yoga and therapeutics, internationally with great yoga leaders such as Desiree Rumbauch,Todd Norian, Michaelle Edwards and Elena Brower. Through my yoga practice, I have enjoyed experiencing freedom and release and enthusiastically shared that. One challenge I have faced, is that as the intensity and excellence of my practice has grown, an injury would happen. The slow recovery process would start once again, making it necessary to ramp down my vibrant practice and physical lifestyle, and seek new methods for healing my injury.

As a result of these experiences and a car crash several years ago, I became passionate about bringing my body back to full performance in my sports and outdoor lifestyle, so that I could receive the full physical, emotional and mental benefits of these activities. Block therapy has unlocked my body’s potential unlike any other (of the very many) healing practices I have tried. As a Certified Block Therapist and Instructor, I am committed to giving people the skills and support to seek a clear path to their own self-care and recovery. It is a joy to un-puzzle our bodies together. Block Therapy is for people at any point in their life, of any age or level of physicality.Together with my students, we build pain-free alignment and strength in our bodies and are empowered to heal ourselves.

Rose Benjamin

​​Bristol, Indiana
​Block Therapy Instructor

​​Rose Benjamin

Rose Benjamin has been a Certified Nutritional Counsellor since 1998 after 26 years in the education field. She extended her knowledge in helping others beyond supplement support through energy work. Rose is certified in Emotion Code and Body Code. Both modalities have proven to eliminate trapped emotions interfering with body function and creating pain. Rose has several documented cases of great improvements from old pain, beliefs, and emotional baggage from the past. Her clients learned that Emotion & Body Code are non-invasive and gentle, while no personal information has to be shared for the work to be effective.

Block Therapy was then discovered which gave Rose hope to change the effects and pain of scoliosis on her back, pain in knees and bunions, and scar tissue from surgeries. After seeing how her body was changing, and how she was de-stressing while using her block, Rose decided to do the Teacher Training.“This was something I had to learn how to do for myself & for the potential it has to help both the young and old.”
