"I found myself more emotionally relaxed and easy going"

“I suffered low back/sacro-illiac joint pain from a fall that wasn’t properly diagnosed for several years.  As time went on, the pain was growing worse and became chronic.  I sought the help of doctors, physical therapists and chiropractors with limited success.  I reluctantly scheduled an appointment with a pain management doctor (I feared the surgery and/or prescription pain killers they would recommend) when I came across an article from The Capital Newspaper I had cut out and saved in case I needed it.  Am I glad I did!  I canceled my previously scheduled appointments and instead went to see Ryan to experience and learn more about how Somatic Education could help me.  It has changed my life!  I now am almost entirely pain free.  The best thing about it is that I am in control of dealing with my issue—I don’t have to rely on a doctor, therapist or chiropractor to temporarily “fix” me.  It was very empowering to take back control of my life through my Somatic education.  As a result of my sessions with Ryan I now know how to move Somatically every day. I also found myself more emotionally relaxed and easy going since I wasn’t in pain or in fear of the pain returning at any arbitrary moment.  My husband once insisted that I was upset about something that I honestly wasn’t, because in the past the incident would have upset me.  I had to tell him several times that I was really not upset.  Somatics has given me back my life.  Thank you, Ryan!!"  Claire
