The DVD demonstrates
and suggests ways of extending a career through safe and effortless delivery of
techniques designed to minimize joint pain and stiffness that so many in the
health industry comment about.   Paul Lewis is a Registered Massage
Therapist with CMTO (Canada),
NCBTMB (USA) certifications and is also an FHT (Europe)
approved provider.  He speaks Japanese
and has a Black Belt in Aikido.  He is
the creator of the ‘Lewis Circles’ self-care exercise for stiff neck and shoulders
now on YOUTUBE.  He is a Reflexologist, international
presenter and fitness instructor whose practice goal is changing the world one
treatment at a time.  Lewis won in two
separate categories:  the ‘How to-
Instructional’ category,  judged by the
Silver Telly Council and  the People’s
Telly Award special non-broadcast category judged by the public on YouTube’s
People’s Telly Channel for public viewing. 


It is a
remarkable achievement that recognizes Lewis for his creative excellence – furthermore,
this creativity is highlighted by both the prestigious expert panel of judges
and by the general public. It is not surprising that Paul’s entry won in both
categories, given that his DVD contains instructions in seven languages, thus widening
its audience base and the wealth of information that reaches out beyond the
massage therapy profession to fitness specialists and other health care

Lewis received his congratulatory letter from
Telly as soon as he arrived home from Japan where he was promoting his
DVD and conducting advanced Upper Body Techniques
for the Table
workshops to sold-out crowds.   Surprised and still jetlagged, he humbly
comments, “Really! I am so honored to win and I have to thank everyone who was
involved.  This certainly propels my
enthusiasm for the release of my second
DVD focusing on Advanced
Treatment Techniques on the Table. 
am just awaiting confirmation of sponsorship and doing the final editing, it
will be released this summer.”  The
