About Us

Welcome to Heart In Hand LLC. Our business has been family owned and operated since April of 2014. Our passion to get into the field of massage therapy began after a close family member was in a near fatal car accident. We were intimately involved with her recovery and rehabilitation. After discharge from the rehabilitation center she was still in an incredible amount of pain every day. She began seeing a chiropractor who suggested massage therapy to help with her pain. After a few months of weekly massages, her life had changed. She was virtually pain free. Witnessing this transformation was an inspiration which eventually led us to pursue careers in massage therapy so we could help others recover from injury and relieve chronic pain.

As graduates of The Connecticut Center for Massage Therapy, Ryan and Laurel have extensive training in comprehensive massage therapy. In addition, they have each taken specialized courses to deepen and expand their healing knowledge. Ryan is certified and specializes in Manual Lymphatic Drainage and Compression Bandaging, and Laurel in Medical Massage and Reiki. Both are certified and specialize in Stationary cupping and Medicupping Therapy. Ryan has also completed a course for Warm Bamboo Massage. In keeping with the family tradition, their daughter Izabella is Reiki certified and a Crystal Therapist, which is perfect for those seeking energetic balancing.

At Heart in Hand, we believe that education and awareness are essential to the healing process, and strive to provide accurate, up to date information about our practices, answer any questions our clients have, and if we are unable to answer a question, we do the research and find the answer.

Originally opened in Portland, CT, we relocated to Main Street, Middletown in 2016 in order to provide handicap accessibility for our clients (parking and an elevator are available now). Our goal as massage therapists and energy healers is to help people improve the quality of the lives of our clients. We see each person as an individual who has specific needs, and we work with them one-on-one to develop a treatment plan best suited to those needs.

Thank you for visiting our site. We look forward to meeting you!

– Ryan, Laurel, and Izabella
