"... My atlas orthogonist did her best, but finally told me that the muscles on the left side of my head and neck were so tense, they were pulling my atlas out of position. That sent me into utter despair, because I had always held my body like a clenched fist, and no amount of meditation, medication, exercise, or conscious effort had made any lasting difference. I went back to my internist, who said, “Well, if the problem this time is your nerves and muscles, not your bones, then I recommend you contact Ryan Moschell. I’ve worked with him myself and he’s excellent.” " Bonnie C.
"Ryan photographed me at the beginning of the session and then showed me the first set of exercises. Just a few, easy to do movements, that while requiring concentration, were not physically challenging. The difference was immediate and apparent to me physically and Ryan took my photo again before leaving and showed how my body could relax and ‘untwist’ from my daily tightened state to a more natural state." Darryl B.
"My chronic back pain was infringing on my life-long love of golf and having shoulder surgery last Christmas wasn’t helping. I connected with Ryan Moschell at Somatics Health Solutions for several sessions last spring. He explained the his approach to eliminating pain and strengthening muscles and started me on a daily program. After a few months, my back pain became more manageable..." Tom P.
""I have been a competitive equestrian for many years and, after suffering an acute psoas/groin injury I was referred to Ryan Moschell and Get Out Of Shape by a fellow equestrian who had had excellent results. I had ridden with the pain for a number of months, but when it became so severe that I could not ride, I knew I needed treatment. After just one session with Ryan..." Mimi. M
"...I can't express what a difference it makes to once again be free from chronic pain -- it has changed my whole outlook on life and improved my mood dramatically. I am now able to comfortably run 10+ miles, bicycle for several hours and swim over 2500 yards (resume my normal triathlon training regimen) and do so with zero pain. I'm also a much nicer person to be around :) I am so relieved to know that chronic pain is not a sentence for the rest of my life, and I don't have to accept that as part of the 'normal' aging process..." Mira
"... Today I start each morning with Somatic movements and I am living a much fuller and more active life than I have in years. Ryan’s expert instruction and knowledge have allowed me to enjoy more days on the water or restoring my classic boat. Somatic movement taught my muscles how to relax again instead of being in a constant constricted state. Thank you Ryan!" Dan R.
“Thank you Ryan Moschell! Truly amazing, after one session my chronic back pain of 30 years was reduced to almost nothing. Everything has been easier, walking, standing, sitting, better balance, easier breathing, etc… Not only am I out of pain but I feel even closer and more connected with my horses through my seat. What a great feeling..." Felicitas
"To say that Ryan & Somatics changed my life would be an understatement. Ryan helped me to open my eyes & educated me through the most difficult time of my life. I have been in chronic pain since 2006, and for the first time in 9 years, I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. My husband and I searched for years and years for something, anything that would help alleviate my pain." Ali
"I have suffered for more than a decade with pain that resulted from abdominal surgery. Over the years I had several more surgeries to address the issue, but after a year or two, the pain would always return. Frustrated with the limitations of western medicine, I began to try alternative healing techniques and was led to Ryan. He has taught me..." Karen
"While working with Ryan at the Annapolis and Easton locations I have learned movements that will ease the pain in my back and my legs. While at home I do movements to alleviate pain as well. When I first walked into see Ryan I could barely walk without pain and now I am back out in the world." Kelly B
"My first ride after the sessions: Due to confidence problems over the last few years, I had too much of a thigh grip in the saddle. This time I did not and my horse went into the canter so much smoother and I was able to follow the motion much more fluently. Also, in riding the image is conveyed “let your legs hang down like a wet towel draped over your arm”. Well, I think I felt this for the first time. My instructor told me after the first canter depart to do that again so that your horse will know you have changed an this is the “new you!” Evi
"Right now since being back I have a lot of energy and most of the time I am not sore and when I am sore I do slow pandiculations and I am pain free. As of today I am starting mat work movements that will summarized into into a short very few minutes twice a day daily routine. This stuff is exciting. I also see how my emotions contributed to SMA ( big) in addition to injuries. Well the work has made me more patient when I take a physical challenge on..." Harvey K.
“Participating in a workshop with Ryan Moschell was one of the best investments that I have made in my health and well-being. Despite weekly chiropractic adjustments and regular massage and acupuncture appointments, I was never able to stay in alignment. After the workshop and my private session with Ryan, I have been able to maintain alignment by doing my daily exercises..." Beverly
"To my delight I can report improvement in my riding. My legs feel longer in the stirrups, meaning that my pelvic muscles are loosening. I can now access my ‘whole’ left side (back and legs) on the horse. This is allowing me finally to make balance adjustments and prevents falling in by one horse and helps alleviate a stiff left side reaction from another horse. My coach agrees that my riding has improved. Additionally I can breathe more freely..." Mary Anne
So a week later, last Saturday, I paid a visit to Ryan in Annapolis. He listened attentively to my issue and asked a few questions. Within minutes, Ryan had figured out what the problem was and knew how to fix it. After a few movements, I immediately started to feel some relief. I left the studio with some instructions which I have followed, and I can honestly say that after only 2 days of following these instructions and taking the 10 minutes-twice-a-day needed to continue improving, I feel like a new person."
