“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."

“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

"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.

"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

"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

"I’ve radically changed the way I inhabit my body."

"I’ve radically changed the way I inhabit my body."

“I’ve had back and neck pain most of my life. I’ve tried everything from chiropractic, physical therapy, massage, acupuncture, and physical training. When my massage therapist was no longer able to see me as a client, I began seeing Ryan for massage. I learned from reading and some of his explanations about Hanna Somatic Education and was intrigued..." Christina
