After spending years watching her sister and father deal with the effects of scoliosis, Shannon Lynn Brown found herself interested in helping others with similar health issues. That’s the reason she attended The New School for Massage in Chicago and became a certified massage therapist and a member of ABMP. Shannon now treats chronic and acute muscle pain inside Breathe, a yoga studio with red roof tiles, a high wooden ceiling, and wall niches inhabited by Buddha statues.
Shannon uses her intuition—as well as her knowledge of anatomy—to minimize the pain caused by scars and to the ease the aches associated with pregnancy and breastfeeding. Her experience as a swimmer and yoga practitioner informs her sports-therapy massage and enables her to skillfully apply kinesio tape, which can improve circulation, manage swelling, and make duct tape seem so inferior you might give a roll of it to a subordinate to express your dislike of their work. In addition to nurturing her clients back to health, Shannon has taught students at her alma mater and at Five Branches in California.
