Remove Deep Tissue Celluar Clutter - Ashli's EXCLUSIVE Specialty


A Gentle & Powerful Approach

Inspired to create a bodywork process that honored the body’s natural wisdom, Ashli Marshall, LMT offers the OBX Bodyworker Special. It goes beyond manipulating muscles and tissues and focuses on the body’s nerves and fascia. Fascia is the connective tissue that weaves the body’s muscles, bones, organs, nerves, and blood vessels together.  Ashli Also heavily works with the nervous system. When we help the nerves and fascia heal,  all the corresponding systems restore themselves as well.


Much like a “horse whisper” Ashli uses light touch, signals from the nerves and fascia, and her intuitive skills to discern how much pressure and motion to apply. This approach allows the fascia and the body’s systems to “unwind.” This “unwinding” has incredibly positive unraveling effect on the nerves, connective tissue, muscles and organs allowing the body and its system to gently and effectively achieve homeostasis (balance).


“Any misconception that you hold, is physically stored in your body.
If you have a belief that is wrong, it shows up in your body - it is physical.
It is actually electrical, vibrational and it is stored in the body.
Success, by and large, is the removal of those things.” 

~ Mark Hoverson

The Process

Most sessions begin with you lying face down on the massage table. Beginning with light pressure and gentle strokes, Ashli scans the fascia and nerves for areas that are out of balance. Using signals from the nerves and fascia, she then applies varying degrees of light pressure, gentle strokes and light taps to awaken and quicken the nerves and facilitate the fascia's unwinding process. Sometimes extremely light tight touch or pressure is called for, while other times, sometimes only after several sessions, deeper pressure is needed. 

"It's important to allow your body to do the work
as the fascia will place things exactly where they need to go,

once we allow the body's systems  to unwind."
~ Ashli Marshall, LMBT, Owner

It's extremely important not to rush or force the process. The goal is to take cues from the body and allow the systems to gentle unwind. This enables the body to rest and restore itself in a manner that honor's each body's unique healing process


Ashli often incorporates essential oils and a warm towel behind the neck in her session. Once the needs of the back and the front of the body have been address, a session concludes with a brief review of any insights that may have come up during the session. Ashli's goal is to serve as a therapeutic healer and "intercessor," and so she concludes all sessions with a prayer on the client's behalf.

These are general guidelines as the process is unique to each client and the issues they bring to the table.

"Healing happens when we allow the body to rest and restore itself.
My goal is to facilitate this process in a way that honors
the body and its natural healing systems."
~ Ashli Marshall, LMBT, Owner
