Linda is a gentle, loving and peaceful lady. She speaks to you about any injuries or concerns prior to your massage, and gets a good sense of what type of massage you are looking for. Linda has amazing technique, is always professional, has wonderful oils that add to the relaxation process. I am always amazed at how relaxed and good I feel after a session with Linda. I HIGHLY recommend Linda as a great choice in a massage therapist for you , or as a gift for someone you love !!!
I've been to several massage therapists in my life and have never been so happy as I've been with Linda for the last 5 years!!! She is the best ever!
Linda does a fabulous facial and massage combination...
Her studio is reminiscent of an underwater fairyland.
Linda has helped me through a muscle injury and her knowledge of the anatomy is thorough and aids in addressing painful areas.
I love Linda's kind and generous spirit and I always feel refreshed after a session wirh her.
I would highly recommend her spa.
Great atmosphere at Linda's Mermaid Spa, love all the turquoise, feels like you are underwater. The stained glass is beautiful and suits the mermaid theme. I get facials there, and love the result and the relaxing massage that comes with it. My husband gets a massage once a month at our home and an occasional facial at the Mermaid Spa. For facials and massage we don't go anywhere else. Linda even has massage reward cards, so if you are like us and get them regularly, you get complimentary ones too!
If you live in Santa Ynez or are planning a trip there soon, please treat yourself ( and your partner?) to an exquisite, professional massage from Linda Ashby at Wine Country Massage. Her work is the perfect balance of strength and sensitivity. She will also tailor the massage to your specific needs. If your are healing from an injury (and I have had many) or simply want to relax, she will offer you exactly what you need.
I cannot begin to describe how wonderful it is to receive a massage from Linda Ashby. The entire experience, from start to finish, is characterized by a warm, calm and caring energy that is demonstrated and felt in every action. Linda creates a space that is safe to allow one's self to deepen into a relaxing and healing place. Linda is very knowledgeable, experienced and gifted in her work. I believe that Linda is the best in her field, professional in every capacity.
Linda has been my massage therapist for the past 18 years. I usually get a massage once a month. After you get one of her massages, you will never be satisfied with another.
She uses the smooth soothing Esalen strokes, using her whole arm,...melts me every time. She goes deep when necessary and uses compression and shiatsu where needed.
The music she brings is always different, delightful and comforting. Every massage has essential oils that add to the experience, and she uses The Fenix White Tea moisturizer on the face, wonderful Bergamot, Jasmine and citrus scent. She's always on time, friendly and professional.
Linda creates an atmosphere that caters to her clients. She's intelligent, perceptive and compassionate. I have PTSD and anxiety issues and she provides a soothing and grounding reset for me. She's knowledgeable about the body and has helped me learn how my body reacts to stress and how I can constructively work on resetting my panic buttons.Therapy dogs are available too! Fiona and Mia make me feel like I'm coming home :^) xo
