Hi, I'm Ashley! Oregon LMT #18081
I have been practicing massage since 2010. I graduated from Everest Institute in Tigard and subsequently spent 3 years at Massage Envy in Keizer. I spent some time on the Oregon coast at a therapeutic spa in Lincoln City before returning to Keizer to raise my family. I have trained in ashiatsu, Thai on a table, hot stone, reflexology and soft tissue melting. I enjoy using techniques that have a foundation in energy work and holistic treatment and have also proven effective within the healthcare community. I move slowly and work with your natural breathing pattern to read the soft tissues and reduce knots and tension, rehydrate muscle tissue and promote relaxation (it doesn't have to hurt!). My goal is to make your appointment feel like a relaxing spa-like treatment while providing positive orthopedic results.
If you have an interest in a particular style of massage or treatment techniques, feel free to be as specific as you'd like. I approach every body the same way at first and customize as we go. I won't use techniques you don't like and if you find you do or don't like something at any time, don't be afraid to say so. Your feedback is important to me and increases the effectiveness of your sessions in the long run. Everyone's nervous system is different, which is a huge part of why I love what I do.
I also know some excellent therapists in the area if you need a referral!
