Welcome, Ashley Cooper!
Ashley has officially joined us at White Orchid West, and will be working (as of now) on Wednesday afternoons!
I met Ashley when she came into ZoomCare as a massage patient. Upon learning that she was also an LMT, but had moved from Kansas to Portland a few years ago, and not yet gotten her Oregon license, I encouraged her to go back into this work we so dearly love. Let me tell you, she is GREAT at what she does!
Confident hands, knowledgable, and such a sweetheart, to boot! She has been an LMT since 2010. The 5 years after graduating from Heritage Collegein Kansas City, MO were spent working in all different settings for all types of people and lifestyles.
Her most proud accomplishment is getting to be part of the holistic health team at, Your Wellness Connection, working with some of the best natural health providers in the KC metro area. She's worked with NFL players, provided on-site massage for professional musicians with a non-profit called "Hands that Rock" raising money for music education and worked with clients dealing with traumas caused by motor vehicle accidents. She's certified in pre/post-natal massage and has worked on children as young as three years old.
Her technique would be described as heavy handed although she makes adjustments for each individual session. Ashley enjoys providing slow, fluid, deep tissue work coupled with assisted stretches and trigger point work. She has the intuitive ability to find and help release what your muscles are holding on to.
