REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Sherry on Jul 06
My lower back had seized up, causing much pain and little capacity for movement. Though I was a completely new-to-him patient, Ryan fit me into his tight schedule and helped me so much. I was at the point that just the slightest movement of my ankles sent pain directly into my lower back. I even had needed my son to tie my shoes so I could go to the appointment. After it, the change in mobility was incredible, and I even tied my own shoes easily. In addition to my returning much closer to my original flexibility, the pain was gone. Even better, I was more relaxed than I had been in months. Moreover, he gave me a great treatment plan to follow in the next few weeks. I went into thinking maybe he could help me a little, only to discover he took me back to at least 90 percent better, which is indeed nothing short of amazing considering how locked up and miserable I felt. He’s quite knowledgeable, compassionate, completely professional, and an expert at massage.

I've had massage often before coming to RI. But when in Providence I know I don't need to look any further. Always brings me back to life!

Ryan attended to the tight, pinched areas in my shoulder and hips with great care and skill. It was a great massage (one of the best ever) and the results were truly amazing.

Ryan spent a lot of time talking to me and listening to my specific problems. The massage was great and it felt like he was specifically targeting what I needed. Experienced, knowledgeable and also friendly, gave lots of information about what he was doing and why. I appreciated especially his background in TCM.

Ryan is fantastic! Each visit incorporates a different Swedish technique and it's always the same relaxing and amazing experience. He is very attentive to pressure and adjusts as you request. I could not ask for a better massage! A+!!!

Ryan is a skilled and thoughtful massage therapist. Switching to his practice in the past few months has been extremely beneficial for my persistent back issues.

I have been having massage for more than ten years but in just two visits, Ryan has shown me what really good massage is like. He identifies and then works on the areas that need it and it is both relaxing and restorative.
