    Ashley is very knowledgeable and explained everything very well. My back and hips felt much better when I left!

  • Great massage

    Ashley is truly an artist in her massage practice. Her work is incredibly unique and deeply effective. In a short time, she freed and released an enormous amount of tension, vastly increasing mobility and reducing pain. I can't wait for the next time I can receive a treatment. She is also the most warm, generous, receptive and communicative, with a chill and peaceful vibe in her studio - I am so grateful to have received the treatment and most highly recommend!!

Very relaxing, if I had any criticism it would be that she only provides an hour and a half and not two hours.
