Love & Gratitude

I specialize in meeting each individual with active and intuitive listening. My passion in practicing massage therapy is creating an environment for you to cultivate personalized self care.








About Me


*** Love and Gratitude is TEMPORARILY CLOSED due to health issues induced through my pregnancy. Please send me an email if you would like to be put on my mailing list to be informed of any updates.

My name is Ashley Sanders and I am originally from Lander, WY.  My daughter and I moved to Spearfish, South Dakota in 2016 looking for a new adventure!  I was raised within a family that has always encouraged a natural approach to healing. My late grandmother pursued massage therapy later in life and has been my inspiration since I was young. Watching, listening and learning from her has been one of my greatest gifts in life.

Compassion is the feeling that comes to mind when I think of getting a massage from her. I strive to let compassion lead the way in my pursuit to help others with massage and yoga. With active and intuitive listening, plus thoughtful communication, specific goals can be reached for optimum healing. Collaborating different techniques in a safe and accepting environment promote feelings of confidence that help clients with their journey of self care.

"Ashley has quickly become (my) favorite massage therapist in the area. Not only does she provide a great physically therapeutic massage, but her calming space & positive energy leave you feeling relaxed and refreshed. I also highly recommend her for prenatal massage. I can't wait to schedule again!"
