Andy also worked in corporate operations management for 10 years and left to follow a calling in the field of health and wellness. Having a personal history of multiple sports injuries and surgeries, Andy was interested in natural pain remedies and healing. He became a strength and conditioning specialist, working for a highly respected Sports Medicine Practice in Manhattan administering post surgical rehabilitation protocols. Integrating his business background and passions for healing, Andy became a licensed therapeutic body worker and established The Center for Health and Healing with his wife Melanie Ryan.
Andy’s treatments are conducted at The Center for Health and Healing, located in Mt. Kisco NY. His treatment room is different than the typical clinical treatment office, it is a healing sanctuary. Before treatments, clients are asked to remove their shoes and invited to come early if they can, have tea or sit in The Center’s meditation studio where they are surrounded by inspiring works of art, flowers, plants, and salt lamps. It's a quiet, cell phone free space to clear the mind and calm the body. Clients are also given the option to wait in our beautiful waiting room if they wish.
Treatment sessions are never rushed and rarely does a client have to wait for their session to begin. Andy’s assessments, treatments and wellness plans are based on the philosophy of Integrated Positional Therapy. He may also weave in other well- known therapy techniques as needed such as, NMT, massage, heat, connective tissue therapy, Shiatsu, reflexology, and Reiki blending both Eastern and Western healing arts. Andy educates his clients on basic muscle and bone anatomy to help them gain clarity about the root cause(s) of their pain. He also teaches clients breathing techniques, correct movement patterns as well as proper form for all of the therapeutic exercises he outlines in their individual wellness plan. Andy believes that his unique mix of treatment skills gives his clients the best opportunity to gain harmony in the body and keep it pain free.
