What our clients have to say about Ashley Hiatt and Geri Ruane:

Ashley is one of Austin’s finest massage therapists. She balances therapeutic technique with pure bliss. She is personable and skilled. I can wholeheartedly recommend Ashley. Give her a call-set up your massage! You will not be disappointed!
Geri’s oncology massage was both relaxing and energizing. It really helped relieve the stress of the last few months, gave me more energy, and really helped with the neuropathy. I highly recommend the oncology massage or the hand and foot massages to any oncology patient. The massage does make a positive difference!
My oncology massage session was amazing! The combination of your gentle massage techniques and energy body-work, together with deep breathing and the beautiful sounds from your gong and zenergy chimes, created a very soothing relaxing effect. Also, listening to your soft soothing voice when naming the different parts of the body associated with the areas of the feet during the reflexology helped me to become more mindful of my body during the massage session. After the massage session was over, I felt more relaxed, energized, and renewed. Thank you!
