About

Ashley Dager, LMTAshley, founder of Retouch Wellness, is a New Jersey Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT) Specializing in Pre, Peri, and Postnatal Massage. With more than 2,500 hours of hands-on experience, Ashley has been practicing primarily with prenatal and postnatal clients in Hoboken since 2013. She is a graduate of the Cortiva Institute of Hoboken and earned her Maternity Certification under the instruction of Carole Osborn, Founder of Body Therapy Education and author of “Pre and Perinatal Massage Therapy: A Comprehensive Guide to Prenatal, Labor, and Postpartum Practice.”

For nearly 10 years Ashley enjoyed a career as a graphic designer but found her calling after experiencing the benefits of prenatal massage during her own pregnancy. She began practicing Reiki in 2008, which paved the way toward becoming a massage therapist. Her passion for natural living, clean eating, and essential oils furthered her interest in wellness and focus on women. She is deeply passionate about partnering with women along their wellness journeys and helping them to tune into their bodies in a deep and meaningful way.

Ashley’s philosophy is rooted in a client-centered approach, drawing from her extensive training to create a highly personalized session based on the specific needs of the individual. Ashley shares: “No two massages with me are the same. Even when working with a client for the fifth time, I approach each session as if it was the first. This perspective allows me to effectively meet the needs of my clients while also keeping me focused on what they and their bodies are telling me.”

Ashley grew up in Ohio and graduated from Kent State University with a degree in marketing. She’s lived in Hoboken for more than a decade with her husband, son, and a funky cat named Murray. She loves exploring the world (favorites locales include Iceland, Ireland, and Germany), painting, studying Astrology, and taking on the occasional design project. Staying active is also a priority; don’t be surprised if you see Ashley rollerskating through town or riding bikes with her son along the waterfront.

In addition to being certified in the following techniques, Ashley remains dedicated to furthering her knowledge of massage and alternative therapies. She is currently working toward certification in Medi Cupping.
