Extensive product knowledge

The deep devotion and fondness toward what I do has given me the enthusiasm and motivation to be actively practicing massage therapy since graduating from the Finger Lakes School of Massage in 2001.

 

Professionally, 2003 was a big year for my practice; both adding Aesthetics to my licenses and opening and operating A Touch of Tranquility Spa in Corning NY where I have focused in Medical Massage for over 22 years.

 

Throughout the years - Stretching outside those boundaries a bit with continuing education in a number of Massage Modalities, receiving memorable and unparalleled experience by accepting employment within additional Spas and Salons.

All encouraging me to embrace my passion for health and wellness, by becoming certified in Lifestyle counselling, nutritional education and holistic meal preparation.

 

My goal is to fully treat the whole you, not only the physical you. At this point I focus my energy specialising in the four modalities I grow to love more and more daily; massage therapy, waxing, skin care and nutrition education.

 

Describing the style of bodywork I offer, I use the word; fundamental. I make use of an integrative technique in a minimalist way, to help relieve the burden of stress accumulating in the body, the pressure and discomfort of having an injury; with concentration in deep tissue, myofascial release & NMT techniques. Through these modalities and my particular isolated technique, the motivation is to release tender and painful tension without more discomfort, through patience and attentiveness, compassion and understanding. Developing a supportive, warm, relaxing and safe setting to let go...

 

Today and what continues to unfold moving forward... I now produce handmade facial and body care products, and offer an exclusive treatment menu, as well as unique medical grade products from around the world at the spa and in my sessions. 

 

I feel it is of the utmost importance to offer my guests not only a highly effective product and result oriented treatment, but one that is also incredible, distinctive, clean, low-allergen risk and designed specifically for you... Each and every time.

 

With profound gratitude, I express many thanks to all who have supported me throughout the years and those whom are yet to come...

Ashley Agan

LMT |  MSW

NYS Licensed Massage Therapist

Masters in Social Work

Certified Prenatal Massage

Certified Sports Massage

Certified Shoulder Techniques

Ashley is available for:

  • Massage Therapy

  • Herbal Massage Therapy Sessions

  • Signature Spa Massage Sessions

  • Our exclusive Body Treatments

  • Foot baths and Treatments

Since I was 14 years old, I have had two interests in life;

Social Work and Massage Therapy.

 

After high school, I received my Bachelors Degree From SUNY Fredonia, quickly followed by a Masters Degree in Social Work  from Millersville University. While I loved Social Work and the many people I interacted with, I still felt something was missing.

 

At the age of 27, I then decided to go back to school and study massage therapy at The Cortiva Institute in PA + Finger Lakes School of Massage in Ithaca NY. Leading to NYS Licensure as well as being registered for practice in both PA + NY. 

 

From that moment on, I knew I had found my true calling in life. Nothing brings me more fulfilment than really listening to what each client wants and needs. Matching my skills and techniques to provide them with the best care I know how.

 

My work is unique in the sense that it’s a mixture of Swedish, deep tissue, and also focuses on specific issues such as injuries or traumas that a client may have experienced or suffered. Rather than one specific modality. 

 

I also have ample experience with and enjoy prenatal, myofacial and sports massage as well.

 

Throughout my sessions, I give clients everything they want and a little bit of what they need! Massage therapy is my true passion in life and I couldn’t be happier or feel more blessed to be able to do what I love on a daily basis!

And it is with great honor to have Jaclyn's brilliance and aptitude for the gifts she offers in Corning ny with us!

Jaclyn is available for:

  • Energy Healing and Intuitive Reading Sessions

 

Working with your body and soul we can help accelerate the healing processes occurring in your life at this time.  If you have had trauma, surgery, major life changes, heartbreak, or are ready to shift old patterns, energy healing can bring you a great deal of clarity, lightness, and peace.
Energy Healing may also be very useful for releasing blocked emotions and breaking up old patterns of behavior which can create change on an emotional, spiritual, and  cellular level.   If you have depression, anxiety, discontent, apathy, fear, jealousy, stagnation, chronic health issues, addiction, or just a sense of something missing, energy healing may be helpful, even after only one session.  Energy healing is also useful to restore balance if you just feel off center, overwhelmed, or you wish to release anxiety.
I work with your soul, your body's innate wisdom, and spirit guides to release blockages, realign your energy, and reconnect you to yourself and your soul.
Sessions are typically 90 minutes, shorter sessions are available if you like as well.

Jaclyn Eisman has been studying and practicing energy healing for 14 years. Jaclyn received a 200 hour certificate from the Pennsylvania School of Spiritual Healing, located in York, PA where she studied the Chakra System in great depth.  She is a Reiki Master and has studied shamanic and plant based healing in Ecuador and Peru.  Herbalism compliments her healing work, with teachers including Sevensong and Rosemary Gladstar.  She has been studying and practicing massage therapy since 2001 in PA.  She received her 750 hour certificate from the Southwest Institute of Healing Arts in Tempe, AZ and is licensed to do massage in PA. She has also been teaching courses on Chakra Healing for 6 years.
