about the space. I am currently doing outdoor, masked sessions at my home in Kensington, CA, with privacy from neighbors & protection from the wind! there is a flight of 30 stairs to take down.
….wait a minute – massage, during a pandemic?! I am sure that some of you & loved ones in your bubble may have concerns about the safety of this, and want to reassure you that I am adhering to strict COVID-safety protocol as set forth by Contra Costa County, the California Department of Public Health, and the CDC. Masks are required by both myself and the client during the session. The massage table & face cradle are disinfected before & after every session, & I use organic laundry detergent on all sheets (also organic) & blankets used.
I am referral-only (self-referral included, esp. if you are one of my yoga students!), and thus only see clients that I know personally & trust, and loved ones of theirs that they trust as well.
I honor my commitment to being a responsible practitioner by living my personal life, as well, in a way that adheres to mindful social distancing. may we all live in alignment with ahimsa – non-harm, and from a place of love & respect for each other.
here is the clearance/consent form to fill out before our first session.
drop me a line @ email@example.com to schedule! let’s get you on the table!
Hi there. Ashley Bennetorri here. Perhaps you know me from yoga, or a loved one referred you my way. I completed my 500-hour certification in Massage Therapy at McKinnon Body Therapy Center in Oakland, CA in 2016. My path integrates Eastern and Western modalities, including Swedish, Acupressure, Shiatsu, Craniosacral Therapy, and Deep Tissue massage. I found this path & work after years of various struggles & injuries – ranging from addiction, PTSD, bike accidents, motorcycle accidents, earthquakes, heartbreaks, you know. the stuff of life.
& truly, it has brought healing unlike any other, both in giving and receiving. I’d be honored to fit into your own journey of healing & self-care.
We all need touch, & certainly are in want of it now more than ever. We’ve all got trauma & emotions & stress bound up in our bodies *somewhere*. I don’t have to tell you that. & sure, we can stretch out on our yoga mats & get shit out on runs & bike rides & dance parties in our own homes, but –
there’s nothing like compassionate, therapeutic touch to help you to s l o w d o w n, rest, and restore your body & psyche back to wholeness & ease.
that’s where I hope to come in, this work being my truest work in life, my soul’s deepest offering & honor. ❤
