Cory Ryan is now my first choice for massage in Palm Springs. From the energy of his studio to the beaming energy from his smile I felt instantly safe and relaxed. He listened to my long list of needs and paid careful attention to each one. If you haven’t had the chance to experience his work you really are missing out.

A wonderful skilled massage therapist and a special person. Cory's session did wonders for my suffering sciatica. He listens to your body and applies the correct pressure where needed. I've been pain-free and back to my yoga routines. Complete body relaxation. I'll be back for more sessions.

Have you ever had a massage so good that you were afraid to get one again from the same guy because you don't think it will be as good?
Well I got my second massage from Ryan and I can say his massages are not a flook. The second was just as great as the first one. He is a try master at his craft. Most of the time when a guy starts off deep he can't keep up the pressure for very long. Ryan kept his deep pressure the full 90mins.
I do find him sweet trying to communicate with me, with me being deaf, he tries to over animate himself to get his point across. I really appreciate that, he also brought his tablet to text to me.
I read lips very clearly and he always looks directly at me when he is speaking.
I can not wait till I am back in the area again to get another great massage.

Everything about Ryan’s massage profile was even better in person. He is truly a professional and a master at his craft. From the moment he arrived he made me feel relaxed and safe. If you see Ryan in your area don’t hesitate to book him right away.

Ryan was prompt professional and a pleasant personality. The massage rate was on point and so were his techniques.

Meet up with him on Emeryville, CA. I think he gave me one of the best massage I had. He set up the room with comfortable environment and paid attention to my needs. Relax my tight back muscles after my diy project during weekend. Will definitely come back.

Dec. 21, 2021 in Palm Springs, CA (in-studio)

Ryan creates a very comfortable environment that is clean and warm, and from the first moment he is personable and disarming. We discussed what areas I wanted him to focus on before the massage began (for me it was the upper back, shoulders, and legs). I get massages every now and then and have a general idea about what to expect in terms of technique. Ryan takes a shoulder and upper back massage to a whole new level. I felt more than any other massage experience I've had that he was tailoring every movement specifically to each contour of my sore muscles. He did not rush. He used just enough pressure to work out the knots and balanced the pressure with intuitive care. I've never felt so safe or cared for during a massage experience. His hands are full of grace. If you get the opportunity to book a massage with Ryan, don't let it pass you by.

Oct. 09, 2021 in Portland, OR (in-studio)

I saw Ryan was back in town recently for bodywork. Delighted because definitely not the first time I’ve seen Ryan. He was incredibly professional and accommodating. He creates a very inviting and comfortable atmosphere while still managing to find the trouble spots (this time they were in my back). There is a reason why I see Ryan whenever he comes to town! Highly recommend.

Aug. 06, 2021 in San Jose, CA (in-studio)

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!

May 13, 2021 in San Luis Obispo, CA (in-studio)

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.

Oct. 13, 2020 in San Jose, CA (in-studio)

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.

There's no riddle here, if fatigue extreme tiredness, mental or physical exertion is on your plate - This Is Your Man for massage! Groomed conducive to professionalism a clean safe environment is what this masseur brings. Respectful, considerate and without a doubt spiritually connected. Only downside is his images. They don’t do him justice!

Ryan, gave me a truly excellent and entertaining massage. He is not only very skilled with his massage technique, but is also an enjoyable conversationalist and a nice guy

May 20, 2019 in San Jose, CA (mobile)

Ryan gave an excellent massage! He asked me where my trouble spots were and really focused in on them – he was relentless! He really was able to undo a lot of my recent stress! He’s a real gentleman and offered a first rate experience,

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.
