Q&A with Ashley, Owner Holistic Health Practitioner
What is one of your signature services? How is it performed?
I specialize in many aspects of women's wellness which include fertility, the perinatal time, early labor, labor and birth as well as the postpartum period and beyond. One of my signature treatments is called the labor preparation massage. This session is catered to the specific needs of each women and is a blend of relaxation and rebalancing techniques with the use of acupressure to support the natural process as the body prepares for birth. All of the techniques performed during this treatment are comfortable and safe for full term pregnancy and are supportive to what is already occurring in the body. It is a wonderful way to connect with your body during the last stage of pregnancy and a wonderful way to connect with your baby before your birthing time.
What’s your favorite part about your job?
Getting to work with women and partners as they become families. Supporting women during such a sacred and transitional time is an honor. As a massage therapist, it's amazing to see women go from feeling discomfortable to truly enjoying their pregnant bodies!
What steps do you take to make your clients feel at ease?
_I make sure that every session is special and unique for each client. I always provide time to sit down and talk before we ever begin a treatment so that my clients feel comfortable and are able to provide me with helpful information to make their session as effective and enjoyable as possible. I also do a postural assessment beforehand to address specific needs and focus areas. During the treatment, I set up special pillows for optimal positioning. I use a blend of eastern and western massage techniques with focused intent to create a safe space for a body/mind healing experience. I encourage my clients to communicate their needs and wants and to ask as many questions as necessary.
I also have many resources for support and education and a lending library for all my clients! I believe knowledge is empowering which is why I do my best to create an open, learning environment while also offering a serene and nurturing space for a relaxing massage experience._
