A Deeper Look Into Ashley’s Goals, Clientele, & Training

Ashley’s main goal is to help you “heel” so you can live the life you want in a healthier, more balanced way. Her drive for a balanced body & lifestyle comes from years of watching loved ones battle illnesses in addition to her personal journey of managing a college injury.

Her clientele ranges from athletes (recreational & professional) to those managing chronic health conditions, stress, injuries, & beyond. She strives to show her clients compassion which influenced her previous business name, The Compassionate Touch, in her former state of Kentucky where she was voted Best Massage Therapist four years in a row (2016-2019) by Expertise.com before moving to California.

Ashley has practiced massage since 2009, where she specialized in traditional deep tissue massage, injury rehabilitation, range of motion/stretching, & myofascial release techniques. After experiencing two repetitive-use injuries she was introduced to barefoot massage & has never looked back.

She has been a certified barefoot massage practitioner since 2015 & specializes in Myofascial Ashiatsu & Sarga Bodywork. She is completing her instructor training with The Center for Barefoot Massage & is also an instructor with Yoga Tune Up®.

She loves working with clients who strive for a healthier, more balanced life. Whether you’re trying to manage stress, rehabilitate an injury, or reduce symptoms of a chronic issue, Ashley wants to work with you!
