Ashley is excellent! Great to find someone that does a proper remedial/sports massage & really knows what they’re doing. As a hairdresser, my neck & shoulders get pretty tense & now I feel so much better! I’ll definitely be back!
Ash is a fantastic massage therapist - very knowledgeable & knows more of what is going on in my body than I do. I always look forward to my visits as she knows how to cure the aches pains & helps me move forward to having a fully functioning body. Ash is an all-rounder, has great experience & is a great listener too with a passion for what she does. I cannot recommend Ash highly enough. I have been involved in Ironman triathlon for more than 20 years & she is one of the best ever, I’m grateful for her. Give her a go!
Being an outrigger paddler, I had all kinds of issues with my body, from knots on the back of both shoulders to a couple of tears. With regular weekly sessions I was more flexible than I'd been in a long time. Ash has a great knack of dialling into the problem area and really working hard on the muscle.
I highly recommend a deep tissue/remedial massage by Ash. She’s incredibly knowledgeable and her massages are fantastic. She released a lot of tension in my shoulders and neck. It’s one of the best massages I’ve had.
I just wanted to thank you for the work you've been doing. I have been to a number of massage therapists over the years and it has been good to find someone with your experience. Personally, I am enjoying fewer headaches and less muscle tension/aches and pain overall.
What can I say... Ash is amazing!!! Training at the gym 6 times a week, she certainly gets those knots out. Always feel great after. Of course I would recommend Ash, she is awesome!
Ash is a fantastic massage therapist 🙏 Professional. Won't go anywhere else.
Ash really knows what she's doing. It's obvious that she has years of experience behind her and that she targets what your body needs throughout the massage. She was very easy to talk to and explained everything really well; it's always nice to understand what's being done and she explains it perfectly. The massage itself was blissful; Ash checked in with me throughout the session to check pressure and areas of focus. Definitely recommend, 1000%!
