Ashton is the founder and in-house massage therapist at Ensō Massage & Wellness. She has lived in Henderson County since 2011 and is humbled to call the Western Carolina mountains home. She has been in practice as a massage therapist for seven years developing her massage style in the spa, private practice, and physical therapy settings. She has accrued a collective understanding of anatomy, physiology and kinesiology that has given her an evidence-based, results-oriented approach to the body.
She graduated from the Asheville School of Massage and Yoga in 2014. There she received a strong foundation in Swedish, Deep Tissue, Prenatal, Shiatsu, Sports and Geriatric modalities with integration of Ayurvedic principles. Building on that foundation she has acquired continuing education training including but not limited to Deep Tissue, Table Thai, Acupressure, Therapeutic Cupping, Medical Massage, Myofascial Release, and PNF Stretching. In 2019 she graduated Magna Cum Laude from South College with her A.A.S. to be a Physical Therapist Assistant. She chose the field of Physical Therapy because she wanted to expand upon her understanding of the way the body works and how to fix it. She loves being a student of the human body and is always looking for new ways to make herself a more efficient medium to help facilitate healing.
