Massage Therapy:

 Ashley first moved to Kirksville to attend Truman State and become an art teacher, however during college she was introduced to the joys of massage therapy and noticed the benefits it had for herself as a dancer. She wanted to learn more and share these great benefits with others, so after earning her BA-liberal arts , she headed to Kansas City for massage school!


Ashley attended a 1200 hr program at Heritage college where she received her Associates in Therapeutic Massage. This program included many different massage therapy modalities but Ashley continuously exceeds the requirements for continuing education (because it's fun to learn!) including over 100 hrs focusing on Traditional Thai massage and Thai reflexology.
