While at an event a few months back in the fall of 13, Penelope offered free 10 minute intro massages. I was fortunate enough to get one and i just remember how truly great it was even though it was only 10 mins! Imagine what a full session will be like.
While traveling i am always looking for a qualified massage but i can tell you, NONE compare to the knowledge she has of how to properly apply just the right amount of pressure and release the knots without the pain I’ve experienced from most while traveling. Others just don’t know what they are doing, she definitely does.
I will be booking a full massage soon and cant wait to get the best massage in the world! Im not kidding either, ive tried many massages in China and cringed with pain and couldn’t wait till they were done.
Seriously, Tranquil Therapy is the best!

I’m an athlete who went to Ashley after a low back injury and have been back for relief due to shoulder pain. She’s has a really great knowledge of anatomy and the way muscles work together and has not only helped me treat my pain through massage but helped me identify patterns that were causing it in the first place.
Energy, Focus, Body, Mind, Bliss… Ashley Stafford is by far the best massage therapist in the Philadelphia area. She has been a great help and positive impact in maintaining my overall health. She always has a smile and always offers new exercises to help me when she can’t be there. She creates a calm and peaceful environment and makes you feel the same. Don’t look any further if you want lasting results.
Ashley is a very knowledgeable and skilled healer. Any time I’m having an issue with my body (which happens frequently in my line of work) she knows just what to do to fix it. She’s friendly and inviting and I’ll keep going back to her for years to come!
I’ve never had a better massage…
Ashley is beyond knowledgea ble and profession al… My life and health have improved drasticall y since working with her… She is the best in Philly!!!
For the past couple of months, Ashley has helped me manage my back, shoulder and neck pain using a new technique called Dermoneuromodulation (DNM). She recommended it as my muscles and nerves were pretty tense, and hard to work with using other massage techniques. It has worked great, I feel like my muscles are being re-trained and my back, shoulders and neck have felt much better. Ashley is great- quick to identify the problem(s), very attentive, professional and helpful!
The first time I got a massage from Ashley, she was doing chair massages in a club in Philly. Despite the pounding music and people milling around, I still managed to fall asleep while she worked her magic. While this might be considered a negative for some people, I considered it a major positive. So, when my lower back started hurting me a few days ago, I reached out to Ashley to book an hour with her in hopes her magic hands could give me some relief from a pain that was making it hard to stand upright.
Lo and behold, it is a couple days later, and I feel fantastic. I’m moving around nicely, and I generally feel more relaxed than I did before she worked her magic. I think the best part, though, was that once we were done, she explained what I can do for myself to help avoid this sort of issue in the future. That’s not just a nice gesture, but it’s good business.
If you’re looking for relief from just about anything (seriously, check out her website), go see Ashley. She’s knowledgeable, kind, talented, and she loves her job. You won’t find anyone better.
Ashley was great. She paid attention when I told her my issues, and focused on all the right spots. Very relaxing.
I went to Ashley following a low back injury. She worked methodically through my body and after days of discomfort I was finally able to sit comfortably. She also gave me a couple of exercises to do to help counter the strain of working at a computer.
“My name is Catherine and I am a graduate student currently on medical deferment. I have stage-4 endometriosis. I also suffer from a serious back and neck injury from a fall down the stairs. I had spinal stenosis that put pressure on my spinal cord, nerve compression from herniated discs, L4-S1, and a tear in my sacral ligament. This injury required surgery on my lumbar and sacral spine. The surgery destabilized my spine causing additional diagnoses and excruciating pain. I first saw Ashley in 2014. I had radiating pain into my chest, left arm, scapula, and hand. I was having difficulty moving my neck and I was panicked because I had an important exam to take in a few days. Through Ashley’s technique and skill, I was able to regain mobility and lesson my pain to the point that I could succeed on the exam. Recently, I started seeing Ashley on a regular basis for migraines, right hip out of joint, degenerative disc disorder, piriformis syndrome, and myofascial knots in my hip flexor from endometriosis. Since increasing my visits with Ashley, I am experiencing fewer migraines, less need for heavy pain medications, greater mobility, and more energy. I was even able to take a trip and sit in a car for an extended period of time without a resulting prolonged pain flare. Ashley not only has a deep understanding of massage therapy, she also has a profound talent of knowing her client’s body. Her work is tailored to your needs and she understands that these needs are not always the same each time you are in pain. Each session, she works extremely hard to ensure that you find relief from pain. Since meeting Ashley, she has helped me out of four pain flares allowing me to get my back to my life quicker. I cannot explain what kind of gift it is to have some respite from pain and that is what Ashley gives to her clients. As a chronic pain sufferer of almost ten years, Ashley stands out as among the best of my providers. She has become an integral part of my medical team. I recommend Tranquil Therapy to anyone that has experienced either acute or chronic pain. Ashley is the best!”
