REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Anonymous on Dec 11
Ryan was amazing. He found every place in need of work and worked it masterly.
by Liana on Oct 23
He definitely made the massage tailored to my needs and always made sure there was enough pressure on my problem points. Knew what he was doing and made sure I was always comfortable. Definitely already feeling less pain in my leg and definitely going back!

This was my first appointment with Ryan. I could tell that he knew what he was doing and even though some of it hurt, I knew it was hurting for the ultimate good. I came in with severe neck pain and today (the next day) my neck is markedly improved. He was easy to talk to and I felt safe. One of, if not the best, massage I've had.

A great massage. Ryan explained what he was doing and how the different trigger points and muscles were connected. He left me with exercises to do and I'm feeling much better today.

Great technique for myofascial/tension release. Exactly what I was looking for to help with my long study hours. And in the comodity and comfort of my own home thanks to his house call service.

I liked everything from the pressure to the communication. I disliked nothing!

Ryan is soft spoken and very present. He makes you feel valued, he listens and checks on how you are doing with the process throughout.

Ryan's great—his knowledge of the concepts of physical therapy combined with massage render him particularly well-suited to this line of work. He's especially good with issues of importance to athletes and in working around athletic injuries.

I think ryan is fantastic! Listens to what you need. Strong. Very accommodating. For me, I am amazed at how much better and functional I feel.

I've been coming to Ryan for the therapeutic massage and he has helped me tremendously to reduce pain and regain range of motion with a herniated disk. Ryan is a very compassionate and talented massage therapist with a background in Physical Therapy. He is knowledgeable about musculoskeletal problems and helped me to specifically target those areas that are contributing to my pain. I always feel refreshed and relaxed after leaving his practice and look forward to coming back. I highly recommend him as a massage therapist.
