What motivates Ashley Pickering most about massage therapy is the ability and honor of participating in a client’s journey towards health and wellness. Everyone has a unique journey. Individuals may develop physical, mental, and emotional compensation patterns that store themselves within the body on such a cellular level the body needs to be manipulated and encouraged to be released. Ashley truly believes individuals have the ability to live happy and healthy lives but sometimes we all need a little motivation and encouragement.
Ashley’s journey with massage therapy began at Lakewood School of Therapeutic Massage. Upon graduating from the program in December 2014, she quickly received her license in massage therapy in January 2015. While at Lakewood, Ashley became interested with aromatherapy, craniosacral therapy, carpal tunnel syndrome, myofascial release, hot stone massage and polarity therapy. She is also familiar with lymphatic drainage and prenatal massage. Ashley has returned to Lakewood as a graduate student to help future students with their journeys as well as to become more knowledgeable of reflexology and sports massage.
Motivation and encouragement comes from Ashley’s friends and family especially from her son and daughter. If not spending time with friends and family, she can be found playing on various softball and volleyball leagues and tournaments or participating in other community events. “My goal, rather passion, is to always keep learning and providing unique client centered approaches for relief and wellness through a professional, therapeutic touch. After all, ‘Your profession is not what brings home your paycheck. Your profession is what you were put on Earth to do with such passion and such intensity that it becomes spiritual in calling’ – Vincent Van Gogh.'
