Healing with Sound & Touch
Updated: Apr 9, 2021
In April we will return to Joshua Tree to immerse ourselves in the practice of yoga and self-care.
The architecture of the desert, the culinary experiences and the space to drop-in and connect are reasons enough to go on retreat, but the offering of sound meditation and massage is an exceptional opportunity to experience healing and connection on a deeper level.
Meet Ryan Mussen, our incredible retreat sound healer and massage therapist. I have experienced the beauty of healing with Ryan's sound meditation and massages. His musical skill, and ability to feel and guide the energy of each person in a room is a beautiful, healing experience. His healing carries into his bodywork as he works with you to provide deep release and restoration.
Ryan describes his work as a philosophy "...to provide practical solutions of massage and bodywork therapy for relaxation, assist in muscle tissue injury recovery, to achieve a degree of relief for people in chronic pain, improve range of motion and mobility for those with traumatic injury (with a doctor's recommendation of course) and improve circulation of blood to allow the removal of toxins from the body.
Massage has been such an important part of my life, not only as a therapist but as a client as well. Before discovering massage I experienced debilitating low back pain that kept me from working and enjoying life. I now receive massage regularly as well as perform daily home stretches which have helped me tremendously. My goal is to share the knowledge and skills I have acquired so that I may do the same for you.
Through sound meditation we continue to heal by aiding the mind and body to reach a deep relaxation, which is the optimal condition for the body to heal itself. By offering these two philosophies I feel I am giving my clients two helpful modalities of healing to incorporate into their own evolving personal lifestyles.”
Come meet Ryan and heal with the power of sound and touch at our 2020 Joshua Tree Retreat.
