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!!

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

I was apprehensive at first, but within the first 5 mins I could tell this was going to be very different than massages I have had in the past. I was very pleased and you did a very professional job, my back and neck already feels better, I will be back soon and would gladly refer friend and family, Thanks, Jerry

Ashley is AMAZING! I have had back pain for years always looking for a place to sit while my wife browses stores. After the very first treatment I was habitually looking for a place to sit when I realized my pain was gone! I HIGHLY recommend Ashley!

Before my first visit, I had never heard of Ashiatsu and never had a message so phenomenal! I will only schedule appointments with The Compassionate Touch going forward. I feel like I've wasted so much time with other businesses. Ashley is amazing!
