Created by Ryan Hoyme, Massage Nerd is the largest massage website available on the internet today. It is home to thousands of pictures, massage videos and massage tests!
Ryan Hoyme, fondly known as Massage Nerd, is a great friend and partner to the Liddle Kidz Foundation. Ryan was instrumental in the introduction of infant and pediatric massage at the Mayo Clinic and helped to facilitate our meeting with those who welcomed Tina Allen to teach the Mayo Clinic staff.
Why Ryan says he started the Massage Nerd website?
“I've been so frustrated with the same techniques over and over. Then I decided to think outside the massage table (No pun intended) and create different techniques. So that is how Massage Nerd was developed! So many therapists get into a routine and perform the same techniques over and over (No wonder there is such a turn-over for massage therapists). I don't want to see that happen and this is why I am sharing all of my knowledge from 1997-present. We cater to the beginning, intermediate and advanced massage therapists. Our information will help you go beyond your current styles of massage (And help you find your true FASCIA).
I've been giving the e-books to my students and selling them on ebay since March 2004 and I have found it very successful and rewarding. Therapists who have been practicing in the field for many years have commented that they learn from the e-books and DVD's.
There is just not one way to perform a style of Massage; that is why we have the opportunity to be creative and different (Lets all palpate nicely and nobody will bruise).”
“Everybody's perception of massage is a little different, so mix it up and give Massage Nerd a try!”
