Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • I have benefited immensely from Ryan's skill and expertise -- he is really intuitive and focused, always a good listener. I encourage friends to make an appointment soonest!

    One of the best athletic massages I’ve had. Ryan spends the time beforehand to find out about your weak areas. He asks the right questions. I walked out of there feeling amazing. His knowledge, touch and spirit is amazing. I highly recommend him and I’ll definitely be back!

  • An incredible session! So cool to meet someone who loves MovNat but way beyond that was his genius expertise, great atmosphere, and heart and soul he pours into his work. Took the time to show useful stretches afterwards and make sure feeling good the day after. Wish I had connected with Ryan sooner!!!!

    Ryan was great! Very skilled and professional. His healing massage worked wonders for the pinched nerve in my neck. I would totally recommend him!

  • Thanks for hitting those pressure points!!

    Ryan is an amazing therapist. He is professional And gentle with people. His energy is pure and he loves what he does. He has techniques that melt your soar muscles and I can’t wait to go back next week! Finally a good therapist I feel comfortable with. Thank you Ryan

  • 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.

  • Ryan is very professional. Listens to what your pain points are and addresses them.

    Very intuitive, gifted healer.

Business response:

Hello anonymous ???? I am very sorry you weren’t happy with the wrinkles in the sheets, but I assure you that they were clean as I wash all the sheets myself with detergent and bleach over at Rosie’s Laundry on Rte 44 in Avon. I admittedly am not the best folder but I take the cleanliness of my office and the health of my clients very seriously. Thank you for expressing your concerns, Ryan

I was searching for pain relief. The session was very pleasant, but unfortunately I can't say I got much relief. I'm still hopeful though. Hopefully I'll see improvement through the next 2 I already purchased.
