“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

"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

"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

“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

"I felt as if someone had taken chains off my rib cage."

"I felt as if someone had taken chains off my rib cage."

"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

"I feel like a new person."

"I feel like a new person."

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."  Anne

"After only five sessions I am cane free! "

“I retired 4 years ago ready to enjoy life only to have debilitating news that I had inoperable spinal stenosis and curvature of the spinal column from living an active life full of accidents. Added onto that I had hip deterioration, ligament and tendon damage from a previous horse accident.  I tried injections for pain, four years of physical therapy, pain medication, and finally burning the nerves to reduce pain. I was given special shoes and a cane. I walked better with the cane. But who wants to look old and fragile. When I met Ryan Moschell I was walking with a cane..."  Mary Anne

"I’m noticing that my balance seems better and I can mount my horse more fluidly."

"I’m noticing that my balance seems better and I can mount my horse more fluidly."

"Since I started seeing Ryan Moschell for clinical one-on-one Somatic sessions I have noticed a number of changes that I find to be very positive. I can comfortably pick up my shoes from the floor first thing in the morning. Previously I had been too stiff for at least an hour to do this. I also have no more “rice krispies” when I turn my head. My foot, (when I check in at random times), seems to be more often in “neutral”.  I had very slight neuropathy..."    Roz

"Able to stop a headache"

"Able to stop a headache"

“I first came to see Ryan because of soreness in my left shoulder and neck, the result of numerous neurosurgeries over the past 15 years. I have a long commute and my job requires significant time in front of a computer both which cause tightening of my neck and shoulder muscles, tension at the original surgical site, and ultimately, severe, non-migraine headaches and visual disturbances. This can occur up to several times a day, and results in significant loss of efficiency and decrease in quality of life."  Nancy

"All of my drives were all 20-30 yards longer than they had ever been."

"All of my drives were all 20-30 yards longer than they had ever been."

“My husband was skeptical when I first told him about Somatics. What caught his attention was when we golfed 36 holes this past weekend not only was my shoulder pain free but all of my drives were all 20-30 yards longer than they had ever been. My husband asked what I had been doing differently and I said the only thing that has changed is my Somatic training with Ryan..."  Paula
