New Client

Making your appointment

Ashley requests that you call to schedule your first appointment. This allows her to have a conversation with you about what you’re looking for in your massage and to also make sure that barefoot massage is the best fit for you.

Calling to make an appointment as a surprise/gift for a new client along with same day appointments for new clients will not be accepted. If the phone is not answered when calling to make your appointment, leave a message and Ashley will return your call at her earliest convenience.

A credit card is required to reserve your first appointment. Please review the cancellation policy before scheduling.

When you arrive

For your first visit, it is necessary to arrive 10-15 minutes before your scheduled appointment time. This allows you to settle in, fill out new client paperwork, and have a consultation. The paperwork is a simple medical history form that tells Ashley of any past or present injuries, surgeries, and medical conditions. The information you share in your medical history and consultation is completely confidential and allows Ashley to customize your session to your needs. During your session, feel free to communicate at any time if you have questions. You may also feel the urge to fall asleep — don’t fight it!

“Ashley is a true healer who has done more to help me recover from an auto accident than all my doctors & PT combined. I would probably be addicted to pain medicine at this point if it weren’t for her. She is incredibly perceptive. I’m a large, muscular male & she always applies the correct amount of force in exactly the right places. She is strong, but never painful. She employs sound business practices & accurate record keeping. I tried several LMTs before I settled on her & she is, quite simply, the best.” -Anonymous
