April 12, 2010, Toronto, Ont. – Massage therapist Paul Lewis’s multi-language instructional DVD for In-Chair Massage wins two Bronze Telly Awards in this year’s 31st Annual Telly Awards’ competition.

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 professionals.

The Telly is one of the most sought-after awards by industry leaders, from large international firms to local production companies. There are over 200 categories and more than 14,000 entries yearly from all U.S. states and from five continents around the world. Founded in 1978, the Telly Awards honor the very best in film and video productions, web videos, TV programs, and commercials from the most respected advertising agencies, production companies, television stations, cable operators, and corporate video departments in the world. Past winners include Harpo Studios, The WOW Factor, Inc., BET News, ESPN, Penn State University, Golf Channel, PGA Tour Productions, Discovery Communications, Sports Illustrated, The Weather Channel, Time Life, Warner Bros., Disney Destinations, NBC Universal, Small Guy Music, TV Guide Network, American Cancer Society, Fox Soccer Channel, Bass Pro Shops, Radio Television Hong Kong, Nickelodeon, Sony Pictures, Miami Dolphins, and Microsoft to name a few. All judges of the 31st Annual Telly Awards are members of the Silver Telly Council and are past winners.


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. I am just awaiting confirmation of sponsorship and doing the final editing, it will be released this summer.” The
Multi-lingual In-Chair Massage Instructional DVD featuring Paul Lewis is being distributed worldwide in English, French, Spanish, German, Cantonese, Mandarin, and Japanese are offered on the single 60 minute DVD.
