Ryan's approach to massage therapy focuses on the relaxation and balancing of tissues that create and hold stress. By acknowledging the connected nature of mind and body, he is able to assist his clients to achieve improved myoskeletal balance, reduced pain, better range of motion, and a greater awareness of their own bodies. Ryan supports the integrative health movement and partners with other healthcare providers to ensure an effective team approach to wellness.
Ryan earned a bachelor's degree in Biological Psychology from the University of California at Santa Cruz in 1999, where he spent time as a researcher and established his foundation and passion for an integrative approach to health. He graduated from the Nevada School of Massage Therapy in 2006 at the top of his class, where he received a broad education in massage therapy. He has since trained in Structural Bodywork, Oncology Massage, Craniosacral Therapy, and Fascial Stretch Therapy, blending these techniques to best serve his clients. Ryan was Board Certified in 2006 from the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork (NCBTMB), the nation's highest level of certification in the field, he is a certified member of Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals (ABMP).
Since 2006, Ryan has had a small private practice serving clients at their homes. In order to provide a more consistent environment and experience for his growing clientele he moved into a private space in August of 2014, and now primarily works from there.
Therapeutic Bodywork is the professional application of evidence-based massage therapy modalities to achieve improved musculoskeletal balance, better range of motion, decreased pain, and better overall function.
I contribute to the health and wellness of my clients through my personally-tailored and evidence-based massage services. In order to deliver the highest level of service, I work with my clients to understand their goals then develop treatment plans to achieve those goals.
In many cases, massage therapy is an effective complement to other health care approaches such as acupuncture, chiropractic care, and physician care. In other cases, massage therapy may be of limited use. I believe that a client should be the one to make the choice about what treatments are best for their needs based on a thorough understanding of costs, benefits, and potential side-effects. I partner with other healthcare providers who believe the same thing and want what's best for their clients.
Whether you are managing stress, recovering from injury, dealing with chronic illness, suffering from musculoskeletal pain, or simply want to enjoy a relaxing massage, I invite you to explore my site and learn more about how massage therapy can help you feel better, naturally.
