After a long culinary career nourishing his patrons wellness through food, Ryan sought out another longtime passion and enrolled in the massage program at The Swedish Institute, graduating Magna Cum Laude in 2016. Since that time he has been refining his skills as a massage therapist, integrating an array of modalities to customize each and every session to best fit with his client's needs and goals. Ryan believes that the stimulation of the parasympathetic nervous system is vital to the healing process. He integrates that philosophy into every massage session by using smooth, rhythmic relaxation techniques while integrating deep tissue techniques to address areas of specific need.
