Level 2 Body Heal Therapist
820 Tyvola Rd., Charlotte, NC 28217
Born with an innate drive to understand the peak functionality and health of the body, Ragan Wren began his career as a professional chef which lasted for fifteen years. Seeking to understand the body and it’s own ability to heal and be healed, Ragan packed a backpack and spent two years traveling around the globe learning and training with healers and shamans all over South America and Asia. Upon returning to the States, Ragan enrolled and graduated from the North Carolina School of Advanced Bodywork.
Believing that to be a good healer you must be a good student, Ragan took advantage of the school’s open door policy and attended the bodywork course three times (which is a blend of neuromuscular therapy and myofascial release work) and was then invited to come on as part of the faculty where he assists classes and leads study groups.
Ragan found himself working with high performance athletes and dove into learning innovative techniques to get peak performance outcomes. Still seeking to heal the body on a larger level he began training in Cranio-Sacral therapy which has become his main focus and greatest passion.
Ragan believes that to achieve balance in the body it requires not only manual therapy but an education in the movement processes required to facilitate neural repatterning leading to balanced alignment.
“More happens outside of the treatment room than on the massage table. Massage creates a window for change and we must capitalize on that change by integrating that work into the body with movement. Decreasing pain, improving performance and maintaining posture is a lifelong commitment.”
