Ryan

Ryan arrived at the world of massage therapy by a unique journey. For 27 years he was a minister, meeting the needs of others day in and day out until after a quarter century he found himself the one in need of rest and restoration. Encouraged by his oldest daughter, he went back to school at Indiana Wellness College to pursue a certification as a massage therapist. 

Ryan discovered that his passion to serve others was just as fulfilled in providing a therapy to them through the use of various massage techniques.  Not only was this a way to meet the needs of people, massage was also the perfect avenue to include Ryan’s lifelong commitment to fitness, both as an athlete and as a coach. Having played multiple sports in high school and college, participated in power-lifting, and completed three full marathons and a half Ironman, he is no stranger to soreness and sports injuries. His personal physical strength has allowed him to specialize in deep tissue massage as well as sports massage and stretching.  

Ryan’s education and experience is not just in ministry, it is in people and listening to them well. This has allowed him to be extremely attentive to the specific massage needs of his clients, including “listening” to their body to target needy areas.  “Always be teachable” is a favorite message he gives to the athletes he coaches, and Ryan intends to live by those words himself, seeking out training in new and more expanded methods to provide the best massage therapy he possibly can. He plans to continue focusing on those looking to massage for sports and other physical injury treatment as well as athletes of all ages, preferably doing so in an environment that focuses on the holistic wellness of a person. Body, mind, and spirit.
