Harmonizing Body and Spirit: An Exclusive MysticMag Interview with Ryan Shroyer of Holisticare Bodyworks

Harmonizing Body and Spirit: An Exclusive MysticMag Interview with Ryan Shroyer of Holisticare Bodyworks

Embarking on a wellness journey often leads us to explore various therapeutic modalities, each offering unique benefits and experiences. In an enlightening interview with MysticMag, Ryan Shroyer from Holisticare Bodyworks shares insights into the personalized essence of Swedish Massage, renowned for its rhythmic flow and profound relaxation capabilities.

Shroyer’s approach is distinguished by a blend of techniques tailored to meet individual client needs, elevating the traditional massage experience.

Beyond the basics, the interview unveils Shroyer’s holistic repertoire, including the gentle CranioSacral Therapy, the soothing warmth of Hot Stone Therapy, innovative Lymphatic Drainage, and the subtle energy work of Reiki, inviting us on a transformative journey towards health and harmony, as facilitated by the insightful platform of MysticMag.

What distinguishes Swedish Massage at Holisticare Bodyworks, and how does it benefit clients differently from other types of massages?

In my practice, I offer and blend various modalities into my sessions to address the unique needs of every client seeking treatment. Each modality requires a unique skill set and set of tools from the practitioner that is honed over time. The practitioner also infuses their own unique “flavor” and perspective into the session, so each treatment is never the same.

A classic massage style that most people are accustomed to when they think of the word “massage” would be a good old-fashioned Swedish massage. It’s very flowy and relaxing and generally will put you to sleep, especially if the therapist’s strokes are slower and rhythmic and they have a calm aura about them.

The therapeutic benefits of Swedish are generally to decrease tension in the body, increase circulation, and activate a parasympathetic (relaxation) response in the body. If the client is looking for a Swedish with deeper pressure, then they would be requesting a deep tissue massage. More pressure means the therapist can access and release deeper tissue layers in the body, all while keeping the client’s comfort in mind.

How does CranioSacral Therapy at your center aid in releasing neck and back pain?

Craniosacral Therapy is a light-touch whole-body treatment technique developed by Dr. John Upledger that works with the craniosacral system to support and nourish the central nervous system, improving overall health and well-being. This modality works with the natural and unique rhythms of the different body systems to pinpoint and address problem sources. The therapeutic benefits include improvement of coping mechanisms to allow for better management of stress and improves the body’s ability to self-care.

In what ways does Hot Stone Therapy enhance muscle relaxation and circulation compared to traditional massage techniques?

Hot Stone massage is taking all the elements of a Swedish massage and incorporating hot stones with the treatment. The stones are heated in either hot water or electrically and are generally made of Himalayan salt or Basalt as those tend to hold heat more effectively.

Once heated, the stones are used as massage tools themselves and/or placed in various locations throughout the body to release tension in those specific areas that need it. Adding heat to a massage session relaxes the nervous system and makes the muscles and underlying tissue soft and pliable for the massage therapist.

Can you describe the process and advantages of Lymphatic Drainage Therapy offered at your center?

The goal of lymphatic drainage is to drain and mobilize lymph to allow the body to process toxins and pathogens that have accumulated. This is typically done through cupping, brushing, and soft strokes with the hand.

What role does Reiki play in your holistic approach to wellness, and how do clients typically respond to this energy work?

Reiki is a Japanese practice with the name meaning “universal life energy.” This technique is based on the idea that the practitioner can encourage the flow and free circulation of the client’s own spiritual energy through touch or close proximity. Reiki practitioners are trained to detect and alleviate problems of energy flow on the physical, emotional, and spiritual level.  This stress reduction and relaxation technique promotes healing and is administered by  “life force energy” that flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. Reiki is a healing technique based on where the therapist can channel energy into the patient by means of touch, to activate the natural healing processes of the patient’s body and restore physical and emotional well-being.
