REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Ida on Jul 15
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.

Ryan makes you feel incredibly comfortable and regularly checks in about pressure, pain, etc. He really wants massage to be a part of your overall wellness plan and uses his PT and anatomy background to accomplish that.

By far the best massage I've had in Providence. If you like someone with strong hands, great knowledge of anatomy and physical therapy, and simply a pleasant and professional masseuse then Ryan is your guy.

Ryan is great! He's very attentive and responsive to his clients, and works on my problem spots with input from me about level of pain and pressure. He also suggests ideas and exercises for managing pain between visits.

I am so happy to have found Ryan! Had my first massage yesterday and it was fantastic. He heard what I needed, checked in frequently, and in the end I felt wonderful. He is very knowledgable and intuitive, and was able to address my specific issues with skill. I will absolutely be back!
