Dr. Ryan Curda D.C.
Dr. Ryan Curda was born and raised in the great state of Alaska. Growing up in the rural town of Bethel provided Dr. Ryan with a unique perspective on life, health, and community. Ryan moved to San Diego in 2001 to pursue and attain a Bachelor of Science degree in Film at San Diego State University. Ryan was raised with a respect and love for Chiropractic care as he would visit the family chiropractor as regularly as possible. This appreciation grew into a great desire to gain the ability to help people in the way that his personal chiropractor always had. He re-devoted himself to his studies and enrolled in the Los Angeles College of Chiropractic at Southern California University of Health Sciences in 2009, where he attained the degree of Doctorate of Chiropractic, Cum Laude.

Courtney Howard-Massage Therapist
Courtney is a massage therapist, yoga enthusiast and instructor, tireless
mom and avid Bears fan. She has a busy and blessed life and business in
beautiful San Diego, California.
Even as a child, Courtney believed in the mind/body connection.
However, it wasn’t until her parents developed numerous health issues
and sought treatment through massage therapy that she became
attracted to the idea of helping people like her parents reach optimum
health. She truly takes pride in being a big part of people’s lives, helping
them elevate and maintain their health and wellbeing.
To follow her passion, in 2011, Courtney completed her education from
Cortiva Institute of Massage Therapy in Seattle, WA and took a leap of
faith and relocated to San Diego. In 2012, She completed a yoga
instructor certification with CorePower Yoga.
As life has a way of surprising you, in 2015, Courtney became a proud
(single) mom of the cutest baby boy named Alex. Becoming a mother
has shown her what true love is. “There are no words to describe how
much I love my happy little guy!”, says Courtney. Becoming a mother
has also challenged her beyond belief and increased her drive to start
to elevate her and her son’s life. That’s when the decision was made
and Bodyworks by Courtney was created.
Allow Courtney to help you reach maximum health and wellbeing
through massage therapies!
