Rean Sealy: Therapist Highlights

Liz Garrison, LMT Aug 18, 2014

Ryan is our Lead Massage Therapist and highly requested.  Here are a few question I asked Ryan and his candid answers...

At what point did you decide to become a massage therapist and why?

 
My ex-girlfriend had been telling me for a long time that I should go to massage school. I resisted for awhile because I was not a huge fan of school and classrooms. One day she asked me to go somewhere with her and I agreed. It turned out to be an open house for the Swedish Institute in NYC (where i was living at the time). Having previously worked in a PT clinic (my High School career goal), I realised that the professions were very much aligned and I was intrigued. Unfortunately, the cost of the school was prohibitive ($26,000).
 
Long story short, I moved to Texas a couple years later, attended an open house at Sterling Health Center and went to massage school.
 

What modality is your favorite?

Giving and Receiving: Myofacial Release/Deep Tissue.

 

Tell me about a situation in which you helped a client the most?

The most recent example was just a few weeks ago; I had a guy come in who injured his shoulder playing golf. Apparently, he hadn't played for awhile and was trying to get back into the... wait for it... swing of things, before going on vacation with his dad who happens to play quite a bit. Anyway, when he came in he had limited range of motion and pain due to a rotator cuff tightness. I was able to restore his range of motion and relieve the pain in the shoulder facilitating his driving ambition to beat his dad. 

What do you like best about working at Elements?

I enjoy the flexibility.

What are your hobbies?

I enjoy doing a wide variety of things. Anywhere from going to movies, PS4, beer, shopping (Yes, there's a guy that enjoys shopping) and most importantly... Yankees baseball AND spending time with my daughter.
