When asked why she chose a career as a massage therapist, Ashley replied, "I want to help people help themselves and massage therapy is a very effective and quick way to accomplish that goal."
When asked what she liked most about her career as a massage therapist, she said, " I get to work with my guests and really customize their experience. I know that when they get off the massage table they feel renewed and can take the focus off the pain in their bodies and redirect it to more important areas of their lives. I really enjoy releasing tight constricted areas of the body and watching postures improve."
When asked why she chose Spa Mizan as a place to work, Ashley said, "I like everything Spa Mizan stands for. We give back to the community through volunteer services and donations. It also gives me a chance to work with Aveda's awesome products and learn more about massage and the spa industry."
