Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • So good!

    Professional, relaxing, enjoyable experience!

  • 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!!

    It was all amazing! Ashley's business name fits so well with the work she provides. She was voted Best Massage Therapist in Louisville, a very deserved award!

  • Loved the new bars and table

    Absolutly amazing! The best massage I have ever had!

  • Fantastic Massage! I am now hooked on the ashiatsu technique. Ashley was friendly and on time. Being on time for a military person of 30 years means a lot. Will recommend her to all of my miltary friends and family. COL K.E, PhD, JD US Army Reserves

    Very compassionate, good communication, excellent massage.
