Bodywork & Mobility



We begin your session with a discussion of your current and past health. I may assess your posture, gait, single-leg stance, mobility and stability.

Using Neurokinetic Therapy, I will test the muscle patterns that I suspect are leading to your pain or discomfort. I apply myofascial release, cupping, stretching, movement, and other soft tissue techniques to release the facilitated muscles and restricted fascia.

Together, we will work to find appropriate muscle activation for the related inhibited muscles, and we will walk through and/or video for reference your at-home correctives.


These sessions are interactive and require you to move, provide feedback, etc. Please wear comfortable clothing as you will remained clothed for the whole session.

Relaxation Massage



Signature Session 4-Sided Massage

A multi-dimensional approach to treating four sides of the body instead of two, it follows the superficial fascial lines to rebalance the system front-to-back and side-to-side. Many clients benefit from alternating this treatment with more specific bodywork & mobility sessions; or using this during training for/recovery from an athletic event. 

60 minutes - $ 125
75 minutes - $ 150 
90 minutes - $ 175


Swedish Massage

Traditional effleurage strokes are used on two sides of the body (anterior and posterior) to calm the mind and relax the muscles while organic emollients nourish the skin. 

60 minutes - $ 100         
75 minutes - $ 125 
90 minutes - $ 150


Pregnancy Massage       

Pregnancy bodywork addresses back pain, sciatica, lymph movement/swelling, aching feet, relaxation, and more. Work is done on three sides of the body in supported positions. Post-natal work can help any compensation issues that develop during pregnancy; scar tissue from c-sections (at least 6 weeks post-Caesarean and with doctor’s approval); and muscle tension that changes as you begin life with your new family member. All bodywork options at HMT can be adjusted for pre-natal work; I have multiple bolsters and my table lifts and tilts to accommodate pre-natal considerations.

60 minutes- $ 125
75 minutes - $ 150 
90 minutes - $ 175
       

Therapeutic Cupping can be added to any session by request, or as I see the need.

    • Clients are either undressed and fully draped; or in shorts/gym clothes and not draped

    • Areas such as the ribs, hip abductors/rotators, IT Band, lateral lower leg, hip abductors, and shoulder abductors get more attention than usual given their easy accessibiilty while youre on your side.  

  • Bodywork & Mobility

    • Clients experience range of motion/ gait/ postural assessments and manual muscle testing.

    • As Ashleigh begins to assess your dysfunctional musculo-fascial patterns, shes uses myofascial release, yoga, movement, and props to correct them. 

    • You will move a lot, do not expect to relax or shut your brain off during this session.

    • Corrective homework will be assigned for self care and to teach your body the correct way to be moving, breathing and activating muscles.
