Avenues for Health
About this pro
I have back and leg pain from spinal issues. Ashley is attentive to this and has been able to give me good relief through therapeutic massage, so much so that I don't feel the need at this time to return to a pain clinic for injections.Oct 23, 2016
Being a massage therapist, I not only know the benefits of regular massage, but value the special skills of an accomplished therapist! I have had many massages from Ashley, and find her techniques especially therapeutic as she delves in to the specific muscle groups that are bothering me. She uses firm pressure to release the knots and is adept at getting to the trigger points that can radiate pain. I highly recommend Ashley for your next massage as she will give you a top quality massage that will benefit and relax you. - Vicki S.Oct 22, 2016

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My standard pricing is $45 for 30min, $75 for 1hr and $110 for 1-1/2 hours. I do offer bulk discounts when you buy one hour gift certificates over a certain amount. Between 3 and 5 certificates, please take $5 off each massage. Anything over 6 certificates, please take $10 off each massage.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?A short medical intake form is required to ensure the client is able to receive massage, and so I am aware of any considerations. We talk briefly about their expectations from the session, I answer any questions they might have, then we start the relaxation process!
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Iowa requires 500 hours of training to be licensed as a massage therapist. I attended Body Wisdom School, which requires 750 hours for graduation. The education I received there is above and beyond, in many ways, and I felt comfortable working with clients as soon as I left the school for the last time.
