Movement Reborn is a functional training and pain management studio located in San Diego’s Sorrento Valley.

We believe that to live fully one needs to move freely. We use the principles of Neurokinetic Therapy and applied functional science to figure out the core issues of pain and injuries, then applying the right training strategies to help manage pain and progress.

Our holistic focus is personalized to each individual to provide life-long benefits.
We offer one-on-one and small group training along with internationally-recognized workshops to help you build your body back to pain-free movement.


What is NeuroKinetic Therapy and how we use it?

NeuroKinetic Therapy (NKT) is a muscle testing system used to find imbalances of the muscles in your body.

Imbalances accrued over time is what causes chronic pain. Some muscles are working too much and other muscles are not working enough to support the body. Causing instability, compensations and pain over time.

Most of the time we just stretch, massage and treat the area that is hurting, but the results don't always last, and the pain comes back. If you have experienced this. It usually means that we have not activated the supporting muscles after it has been released. With NKT, we find which supporting muscles need to be activated. That is what makes a much longer lasting relief.

What is great about NKT is that you feel the muscle activate IMMEDIATELY, and in many cases. The pain disappears or massively decreases almost instantly. It's one of those things where you must feel and experience yourself to believe it works.

But it doesn't end there, just because you're out of pain doesn't mean that it will stay that way. The body still needs to LEARN how to STAY out of pain.

That's why our RRAMP method was created. Which means Release, Reset, Activate, Move and Progress.

This is the system we use in our facility, and has been working really well to teach the body how to stay out of pain, or at least learn how to manage it, get stronger, more mobile and progressively feel better. 

That is the Movement Reborn Way.



Andy Hsieh, ACE-CPT, NKT, OS, USAW, KBA.
Movement Specialist, Owner.

Life long goal to live past 125 years old pain free, continue teaching, motivating and finding a way to bring down the worldwide obesity crisis by 20% in his lifetime. Helping people move better is the start.

Andy, a curious person that has been though a lot of pain. "bad knees", "lower back L5-S1 disk degeneration from age 13, consistent neck pain, dislocated both shoulders and overall "bad joints". Didn't stop him from consistently finding out ways to get out of pain but still be able to perform athletically in everything he wants to do.

He has spent the past 7 years networking with over 30* of the top trainers, physical therapists, body workers and chiropractors in the industry, attending countless workshops, certifications and seminars. Pulling in all their best practices into his own style of training and figuring out why people are in pain and how to get rid of it.

Weight loss, getting stronger, building muscle, toning up, rehab. No matter what ones goals are. It all begins with one thing, Movement. The trick is to know what type and how to do it right. Yet everyone is built differently, and the little details matter.

So he got good at doing the right assessments to see how everything is linked. Then he figures out with each client what works best for them and goes from there.

Ryan Neuwirt- CMT, CPT, PES

Trainer, Massage Therapist

Ryan has never settled when it comes to health. He refuses to believe that aging has to mean a loss of function or being in more pain. His dream is to show others through movement, massage therapy, education, and good attitude that they don’t have to subscribe to the stereotypes of aging that our society has adopted.

Ryan knew he wanted to be a trainer from the time he was a junior in high school. After losing over 30lbs through wrestling and consistent work in the gym, and in the kitchen, he realized that his calling was in the fitness industry. He has over 3 years of experience in the fitness industry and over 9 years in exercise experience. He has enjoyed being a volunteer wrestling coach at San Marcos High school where his brother competes, and working with young athletes to develop correct, safe movement and exercise technique.

When he isn’t helping others, you can find him hiking, mountain biking, on his motorcycle, with family and friends or reading.
