Gathered by Ryan from admiring massage clients to share with you.

Ryan is a gentle and caring soul who works to create an inviting and welcoming space in which to perform his massage magic. The music, candlelight and scented oils all contribute to that experience. His hands seek out imbalances in your body, and he works tirelessly to remedy the knots and constrictions in muscles. When he encountered the unyielding masses of tight tissue in my back, as he prodded and manipulated the muscle, he also challenged me to examine the reasons I was holding onto the underlying tension.
At the end of our time together I was relaxed and refreshed; looking forward to seeing this Small-but-Mighty masseur again!

I saw that Ryan was in my town and thought I would give him a try. WOW! It is hard to find someone that lives up to their name. I need deep work on my lower back and most people start off deep and half way through the massage are not strong enough to keep up the pressure.

Ryan deep pressure from start to finish was just what I needed. I woke up this morning with no tightness in my lower back and my body feels better than it has in a long time.
The man is a master at his craft. He made me feel relaxed from the moment I walked in to the time that I left.

Ryan was a pleasure to work with, from the beginning to end of the massage. I texted him for an inquiry and he responded within 10 minutes to let me know he’d get back to me in one hour with more information, since he was busy at the moment — very professional communication here, which I appreciate!
Upon arrival at the hotel he was staying while in my town. I walked into a very spacious room, with soft music playing, a professional massage table, essential oil diffuser and a welcoming masseur. I was very impressed. He even had the lighting subdued in a calming way, which made the whole experience work well.
We talked and laughed throughout the whole massage. Ryan did check on me and say “If you’d prefer to be silent to zen out, that is fine too,” which is appreciated, since some people do prefer that. I like to talk so it worked out for both of us. The massage itself was relaxing and healing. He got all the deep knots out and I didn’t even feel sore the next day.
You should take my recommendation and book Ryan either in his hometown or on the road.

What can I say other than Ryan made my day. I was feeling stressed about my day and nervous about covid. All worries were instantly gone the moment we met. His set up was clearly clean and sanitized. His attitude was calming and professional. And his bodywork was relaxing firm and full of care. I have already booked him for next month.

Ryan's massage technique is a combination of various modalities developed with his own uniqueness. The uniqueness of his technique is his touch, his steadiness, and calmness that I felt throughout the experience.
