Hello! My name is Ashley Smith
*I have taken all of the required courses, along with specialty courses at Body Wisdom Massage Therapy School in Urbandale, Iowa.
*I believe that therapeutic massage is a necessity, not a luxury. Therapeutic massage can help with pain, stress, anxiety, insomnia, and much more over a period of time. It may take multiple sessions before your body is back to "normal".
*I became a massage therapist to help people in need and to show them they don't have to live their life in pain. I always said when I was growing up that I wanted to work somewhere where I could interact with people on a daily basis and also help them with problems they may have. I wanted to have an occupation that didn't feel like I was going to work everyday and could actually enjoy being there, and massage is exactly that for me!!
*A little about me:
My favorite thing to do outside of massage is spend time with my family. I am a married with 6 kids between the two of us; 16, 14, 9, 6, 6, 5 along with our dog Trixie. I am beyond lucky and grateful to be able to call them family. Since combing our families, complete chaos is a very accurate description of our lives! Every weekend is packed full of activities, especially in the summer time. I wouldn't trade it for the world I enjoy playing the piano and singing any chance I can get. I went to Simpson College for two years for Vocal Performance before Massage school....I miss performing SO much!!! I enjoy playing sand volleyball and coed softball in the summers and coed volleyball in fall/winter.
