TESTIMONIALS

"Ash has been instrumental in helping my recovery process as I am a personal trainer and have put my body through many rigorous workouts. First she started off with routine massages. However, this has grown into a full blown recovery plan for my entire body. She not only has the great knowledge of body mechanics, but also the skill set to show me what stretches to do on regular basis to help. At one point my glutes were locked in so tight I had trouble walking, she was able to get me back on track within one session. Another example was a neck issue that had been consistently problematic, again she was able to guide that injury to recovery and now maintenance. I have never known of a massage therapist who can not only help with current body aches, but create a program to get your full body back to a healthy state. Ash comes highly recommended. She is in tune to what your body needs."

"Several years ago, I started developing excruciating pain in my knee – I had taken a few snowboarding tumbles, rock-climbing falls and soccer knock outs and was sure I had done something serious. I had an MRI done – clear, I had an X-Ray done – clear, I started seeing a physical therapist- spending thousands of dollars over the span of 9 months. The pain had halted my weight training, running, restful sleeping and overall daily comfort. I started seeing a chiropractor… nothing helped. I decided, ‘Welp… this is your 30’s – you’re just gonna have to deal with the pain,’ and I tried to manage my life for the next two years attempting to ignore the discomfort by sitting in positions to keep my leg from aching. One day, in tears about the pain, my friend told me about Ash. I thought she was insane to suggest, after all the time, work, and money I had put into this knee, that a ‘little massage’ would make this pain go away. I put her off for weeks, until she raised the question, ‘what else do you have to lose?’ To prove the insanity on her theory about ‘body work,’ I called Ash. We set up our first session, and within minutes, she pointed out the problem areas on my leg, and started working on them. Within three days from my first appointment, I could run, jump, dance, climb, lift, sit, stand and everything in between with no pain. It was actually something quite miraculous… that after almost three years of pain in a knee joint, that she could work with my ligaments and muscles to alleviate my issues. It’s been over 17 months, and cannot sing Ash’s praises enough. Not only did she save me from the physical pain, she saved my psyche from the daily struggle of living with this constant limitation. I have now since run my first half marathon and am no longer burdened by nagging knee pain. So, if you’re in pain… I cannot recommend Ash enough… and I ask you, what do you have to lose?"

“In February 2017 I ruptured two tendons and broke a bone in my foot. After surgery I was sent to rehab and physical therapy through my medical provider. I was happy with the results of the surgery but extremely dissatisfied with the level of care in my recovery process. That being said, I started my own research to find someone I know I would be happy with and would get me to where I needed to be. Having previously lived in Florida, I had an exceptional sports massage therapist that worked with the US Olympic teams. I contacted her and asked her if she knew any massage therapists in Southern California and as luck would have it, she did. She sent me to a fellow class mate of her’s, who in turn introduced me to Miss Ash Platt! Ash immediately stood out as a dedicated, thorough professional. She is attentive, knowledgeable, caring and genuine; most definitely someone I am comfortable referring my friends and family to. I believe The work she has done has significantly shortened my recovery time. If you need body work done, one of the smartest things you can do is consult with Ashley. You won’t be disappointed.”

"Ash is a talented massage therapist. She’s been working on me since November 2017. She frequently finds tension spots in my muscles that I didn’t know where there. I’m a runner and supplement with cross training so I know how important muscle recovery and massage are to my fitness. Ash’s massages help me avoid injury and maintain healthy muscles. She’s extremely knowledgeable about every muscle group and is always able to give me extra, unique stretches to do at home and at the office. She’s a treasure! Add her to your fitness plan now!"

"Ash is one of the few therapist who truly cares about her patients. I don’t think I would’ve survived my last trimester of pregnancy if it wasn’t for her. I had developed a bad case of carpal tunnel and with Ash’s massage therapy sessions I was able to relieve the aches and pains. She’s very knowledgeable about her craft and listens to your concerns and will try her best to get you pain free. Whether you’re looking for a relaxing massage, deep tissue, sports therapy or whatever your need, I would recommend Ash a thousand times over!"

Ash has healing hands. I came to her with ailments from my gym work outs and half marathon training. She truly listened to what was wrong with me and did her research on the best possible treatments. Not only was her massage very helpful in my recovery process, but she armed me with exercise and stretches to do to help avoid the injury again. Her energy is great and she has a deep passion for helping heal her clients.

"Ash is professional on all levels, super friendly and a natural at body work. I sought her help for neck, hip and back pain and every time, I walk away feeling better. Her knowledge of the body and the way she applies it through thoughtful communication always makes me feel like like I’m in good hands, pun intended 🙂"

"Ash has a knowledge for the body that very few and far between have grasped. She not only knows your muscles better than you but she knows what they need and her communication about what she provides and how is super helpful and very professional."

I’ve been an athlete my whole life and injuries and remnants of old injuries are not uncommon. Having a therapist who takes the time to understand the state of my individual body is important. I’ve had lots of Sports massage, and if the therapist isn’t on her game with anatomical understanding or an athlete themselves irritating an old injury can happen. Ashley is knowledgeable, an athlete herself, and has the sensitivity & patience it takes for healing and recovery through sports massage therapy. I’m grateful our paths crossed, she’s helped me improve my mobility with more than one past injury! Thanks Ash 🙏

"The word that best describes the body work Ash gives is ‘healing’. Her kind compassionate nature along with her knowledge of human anatomy, understanding of injury, and individual focus allows her to create an environment where one can trust and deeply heal. I leave every session better than when I arrived and in a state of gratitude that our paths crossed! My husband is also a client now, he’s been an athlete his whole life and has suffered more than one injury over the years. Since he’s been seeing Ash I have noticed a change in his overall experience of his body and the expressed discomfort in parts from past injuries most athletes ‘live with’. The lasting relief and healing of Ash’s therapeutic massage has changed his perspective. Living with pain or discomfort is not the only reality or what he accepts any longer. Ash, you are a blessing to the healing art massage can be! ❤"

Ash was very professional and exceptionally knowledgeable. She began our session discussing my goals and areas of pain and discomfort and worked diligently on those areas. She provided additional education and follow-up stretches at the end of our session for me to continue to work on. Thanks to Ash I was able to compete in my planned half Ironman without pain.

"I contacted Ash because I have experienced sore muscles and sharp pain on my neck and upper-back for years due to long hours in front of the computer at work and stress. This discomfort was interfering with my productivity at work and even with my ability to sleep well. During the first two sessions with Ash, I was so glad that she listened attentively and asked questions to really understand my preferences and needs. She then created a customized approach to the massages that included more attention to the problem areas and stretch exercises for me to do at home. After the second session, my symptoms improved significantly and after a few sessions the pain is gone. Ash always checks on me after the sessions to see how I am doing. I highly recommend Ash not only because her therapeutic massages are so effective but also because she is a very professional and caring individual."
