Ryan is a gifted manual therapist and effectively treats his clients' pain, while helping them correct dysfunctional movement patterns. He is devoted to learning and growing, and his zone of genius grows to his client's benefit!
As a 56 year old woman, I have been active my entire adult life. My activities have included running, spinning, weight lifting, mountain biking, kettlebells and bodyweight work. However, over the years I built up movement dysfunctions and compensations which began to seriously impact my ability to participate in my favorite activities. Approximately six months ago, I met Ryan and he began helping me restore my body by teaching me a myriad of unique bodyweight and weight based exercises/movements to reset and strengthen my body. I am most impressed with Ryan’s AWESOME ability to creatively incorporate “PLAY” into a movement based workout. I have seen measurable strength improvements which prove that getting Stronger is more fun (and more effective) when the “work” is fun.
I've been a client of Ryan's for over a year now and hands down, he is one of the best massage therapists I have worked with. I have a shoulder injury and suffer from chronic back pain so I've been to many therapists, but none have been as knowledgeable and thorough. Ryan takes the time to fully understand your pain points and then develops an individualized therapy plan for rehab. Ryan's unique blend of modern massage therapy and Eastern healing influences make for an unequaled experience. I highly recommend Ryan, he's a fantastic therapist.

Questions & Answers

Hi there, I'm a pretty fit person and If i sleep in the wrong position, I will literally shake the walls with my snoring.I recommend experimenting with side sleeping. Try having your head level, maybe two pillows under or one medium thickness pillow with your shoulder under it. and then another pillow between your knees if you want. I find that this really levels out my hips and feels good. Also, sleeping on your stomach will straighten out your airways and that will probably help. Use a very thin pillow though so as not to keep your neck extended. IF you have any more questions, Feel free to DM me on instagram @Ryan_moves

Such an important question! Yes. Totally okay to do yoga every day. It's really important to mix in other varieties of training. Even if it's just a more strength and stability focused yoga practice a few days per week. Some very basic weightlifting is always good a couple days per week. One person I would definitely recommend listening to is Jill Miller if you haven't already. She was pushing yoga every day, contorting her body into poses that were seen by her yoga community as 'amazing'. And then she had a hip replacement at 45 because of it. She started the Yoga Tune up brand and brought soft tissue mobility and self massage into the yoga world. She is an incredibly smart woman and Everyone who does yoga and exercises in general should listen to some of her stuff.

Hey Mason! Bummer about your back pain. Short answer: Yes. In my experience though, low back pain is caused more by inactive glutes and core muscles than it is by tight hip flexors. Hip mobility is also a potential cause but lets start with the former. The psoas gets a lot of attention because it is literally attached to the spine so it makes sense to say that if it's tight, it's pulling on the spine and causing pain. We tend to blame sitting but when most people sit, they sit with a posteriorly tilted pelvis which basically means: Ya slouchin. sitting with "good" posture actually shortens and asks more of the hip flexors than "bad" posture because of the tension required to stay upright. In general, you want to be aware of WHEN your back hurts. Is it after sitting for a long time?- Probably do some core activation. Simply lay down on your back and bring your knees towards your chest until you feel your abs turn on. This is a reflexive activation that we are born with and happens automatically. Then, roll your tail bone up off the ground to get a little more, and breathe into your stomach. If you can't breathe, back it off a little bit. We don't need a ton of tension here. Our backs don't hurt because they're weak, they hurt because they're doing all the work. Does it hurt more after standing?-probably look at glute activation. Because larger glutes are the evolutionary adaptation that allows us to stand upright. Ever seen a monkey's butt? Not a lot of junk in that trunk. Just lay down on your back, squeeze your abs, press your feet into the ground and do a glute bridge. There are plenty of videos on youtube for this. if you still can't feel your glutes, Try foam rolling your inner thigh and calves and try again. Still nothing? Find someone who does Neurokinetic therapy and they'll help you turn them on. It'll blow your mind. Hope this helps!

As a fellow movement professional, I am very picky about who works on my body! With his knowledge of how the body should move and perform with his training background, as a massage therapist Ryan brings an unparalleled integration to each session. He isn’t just trying to make you feel better in the session, he works with you and your body to find the root cause of the symptom(s) to help you truly heal. Ryan uses various techniques to assess where you’re at and help you move healthfully forward with grace, ease, support, and fun! Highly recommend!
