Jeannine Ryder

Jeannine works with her hands and her heart. Clients seek the safe and relaxing environment she creates, and the compassionate, individualized care she provides.

Jeannine first joined Optimal in 2010, after a career switch from accounting, and calls it her “home away from home.” She has a deep connection with her clients and loves seeing them come off the table with a sense of peace, improved mobility, and decreased pain.

Jeannine is a member of the American Massage Therapy Association and certified in reflexology, oncology, hot stone, and warm bamboo massage. She is particularly skilled at reading her clients’ physical and emotional needs and adjusting her bodywork to meet them. She treats issues of all kinds, including grief, disease, muscle tension, and overall stress, and has helped many clients maintain a routine of self-care for multiple years.

Jeannine believes in the power of kindness. The words of Leo Buscaglia resonate strongly with her, “Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.”

Jeannine finds that she finds that she loves her work more every day, and looks forward to the years ahead spent in her second “home,” working with clients for which she cares deeply.
