Once an Athlete Always an Athlete

“My back has been the main challenge I have faced for many years. I chose to try hands-on Somatics sessions with Ryan and regularly did the suggested somatic maintenance movements at home. The results helped me and soon my workouts had more energy and were more impactful in my physical wellbeing…” John G.

"I am finally beginning to understand my injury and how to deal with it."

"I am finally beginning to understand my injury and how to deal with it."

“Every time I would go to the surgeon or physical therapist, I would mention that this all started back when I injured my R hip. Some tried to address the hip problem but it never improved. Then my back started hurting. I tried chiropractic and yoga. I tried everything. Nothing provided relief for more than a few days. Finally, I was referred to Ryan Moschell, Get Out Of Shape®…” Mary H., MD

“So I have scoliosis and have always had a bad back but really been in debilitating pain for the last 2 years. I am in law enforcement and very active and could no longer do the daily tasks and activities I wanted to do. I had tried everything 3 separate pt programs, chiropractor, yoga, acupuncture and medication shots directly into my back. Those things helped a little but not very much…” Blake G.

"... 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 was completely free of back and hip pain for the first time in over a year."

"I was completely free of back and hip pain for the first time in over a year."

"...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

"I am living a much fuller and more active life than I have in years."

 "I am living a much fuller and more active life than I have in years."

"... 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.

"My chronic back pain of 30 years was reduced to almost nothing."

"My chronic back pain of 30 years was reduced to almost nothing."

“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

"I have gone from feeling completely hopeless to a place where I am truly happy and look forward to the future."

"I have gone from feeling completely hopeless to a place where I am truly happy and look forward to the future."

"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

"Great relief and I no longer worry."

"Great relief and I no longer worry."

"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

"Thank you Ryan for giving me back my life!"

"Thank you Ryan for giving me back my life!"

"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

"Everything is easier such as walking, breathing, sleeping, you name it."

"Everything is easier such as walking, breathing, sleeping, you name it."

"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
