How well you take care of your self now determines your quality of life in the future.

For the past 20 plus years I have worked in the health and wellness field. I started out as a Cardio Kickboxing instructor at a Martial Arts school and quickly moved on to getting my Personal Training Certification. As a trainer I worked with all sorts of fitness levels from children’s fitness program, older adults, to high level amateur and professional athletes.

For the past 20 plus years I have worked in the health and wellness field. I started out as a Cardio Kickboxing instructor at a Martial Arts school and quickly moved on to getting my Personal Training Certification. As a trainer I worked with all sorts of fitness levels from children’s fitness program, older adults, to high level amateur and professional athletes. In 2010 I graduated from Branford Hall Career Institute’s 1080hr Massage Therapy Program. After graduating I used my background in Exercise Science to guide me in my continuing education. I was very lucky to have great mentors right out of school to help guide the direction I wanted to take as a Massage Therapist. I studied Orthopedic Massage/Integrated Manual Therapy/Myofascial Release/Neuromuscular Therapy along with Specializations in Corrective Exercise, Sports Performance, and Conditioning for MMA/Combat Athletes I bring over twenty years of improving health in others into my treatment room and every training session. I look forward to helping others on their health and wellness journey.

I really enjoyed this relaxing experience. I felt that Ryan was able to accurately assess why I was in pain which was a huge relief since seeing a doctor has not helped at all.

the bedding was wrinkly? Worried that it was unclean.
