Nathan Lalli, RMT
Nathan Lalli trained in Massage Therapy at West Coast College of Massage Therapy, Victoria campus, graduating as class representative and Valedictorian. After completing the western medicine model Massage Therapy he continued to pursue knowledge and experiences to further assist in the healing of others. A natural ability and passion led him to further his repertoire in such Osteopathic techniques as Craniosacral Therapy, Ligamentous Articular Strain and Functional Technique.
A search to further understand the interaction of mind-body-spirit has recently immersed Nathan in the work of Moshe Feldenkrais, the creator the Feldenkrais Method®. In his approach Nathan attempts to remove the concept of “doing” to the human system. With a strong belief in the self-corrective capacity of the body, he facilitates “getting out of the way,” of this capacity. Habit, trauma, or repetitive movements teach us to move and continue to move in dysfunctional (much of the time painful) patterns. Gently releasing dysfunctional patterns and assisting the creation of new (or forgotten), easier patterns, creating a space to allow the natural healing forces of the human organism to reassert itself.
Currently training in the Feldenkrais Method of Somatic Eduacation®™ Nathan continues to grow and deepen his approach to body therapy.
Our Pharmacy Technicians are knowledgeable and resourceful, as well as friendly. As the centre of the pharmacy, Cindy and Jessie carry many responsibilities above and beyond filling prescriptions in an efficient, accurate manner. Their aptitude is apparent from the moment they greet each person, to responding to any questions that may arise regarding that individual’s purpose for being in the pharmacy. It extends to taking special orders, blister packing medications, responding to phone calls, ensuring accurate deliveries, and maintaining a smooth running dispensary in general. They are the pulse of Sukhi Lalli Pharmacist
