I was able to be vulnerable and honest with Ashley right away...

"I was able to be vulnerable and honest with Ashley right away, which made my acupuncture session really incredible. Ashley is calm, welcoming, empathetic, and very easy to understand. She is exactly what you want to be around when you want this experience. Thank you!"

-Emily

I am very pleased with the deep healing and increased energy...

"I am seeing Ashley for acupuncture and herbal treatments regularly. In just 3 treatments my symptoms are resolving and I feel better. She is fully present and takes the time to listen to me at each appointment. Her healing presence, years of experience and knowledge of the healing arts is bringing my body into harmony and wholeness. I am very pleased with the deep healing and increased energy. May you and your loved ones receive blessings upon blessings. Thank you, Ashley."

Ashley not only listens to your concerns but to your body as well...

"Ashley not only listens to your concerns but to your body as well. Last visit I had a cold that was gone within 24 hours of treatment. A relaxing environment and a soothing treatment. I love her recommendations of herbs upon leaving each visit. I highly recommend! Today Ashley got out a knot in my shoulder that has been affecting my range of motion with her magic needles. She is the best!"

-Lori S

Ashley is a wonderful acupuncturist...I appreciate every single visit I have with her...

"Ashley is a wonderful acupuncturist. She is a great listener, and is very focused and technique driven during her session. When coming to see her you definitely feel that she is really actively finding all the pieces of the puzzle and working through them so you get the best results. I appreciate every single visit I have with her.

Regular sessions with her have helped my acne, anxiety, stress, menstrual cycle, and best of all- sleep! Most of my life I've spent tossing and turning, waking up every few hours. I now sleep much more soundly, consistently. I highly recommend!"

You must do this. It can be life changing!

"Ashley is excellent at what she does. She is professional, knowledgeable, clear and compassionate. I have tried several types of bodywork in my life, and I very strongly recommend Shiatsu with Ashley. I chose to do a series of Shiatsu sessions to get my body and mind off to the right start. So I did one session every week for 4 weeks, and then moved to one session a month to maintain. It is worth the money, and in fact, is a bargain considering how much my life has changed since I first tried Shiatsu. I noticed immediate and huge benefits following the very first session, and in each session afterwards. Some key benefits I noticed were: immediate and long-term relief from TMJ (I had surgery for jaw clenching, and this is a severe issue for me), decreased stress levels, better focus on my work and personal goals, a balanced overall feeling of wellness and happiness, increased circulation, and a huge increase in flexibility in my shoulders, back, hips and legs. You must do this. It can be life changing! Especially if you look at it as investment in your health and future!"

Every time I leave her office I feel completely relieved of my stress and ailments...

"I've gone to Ashley Flores for acupuncture on a regular basis.  Every time I leave her office I feel completely relieved of my stress and ailments.  She has helped relieve my back pain, stomach pain, female "issues" and the stress brought on by my every day life.   Ashley is extremely calming in her nature, she asks thorough questions and has a way of making me feel very relaxed.  Extremely professional with a caring nature."

-Stephanie M

My Shiatsu session with Ashley yesterday was simply amazing...

"My Shiatsu session with Ashley yesterday was simply amazing. I still feel the effects of it. Today, I feel free in my own body; I feel free of pain. I feel taller, looser and in general, much happier and stress free. Additionally, I can feel muscles I haven't felt in years, and have regained flexibility. I have already booked another appointment, as I see Shiatsu as a way to create real and permanent change in my body, and improve my overall health. Don't hesitate. Work with Ashley NOW."

-LD

The acupuncture itself was amazing and my body felt like it was in another world...

"Ashley is extremely knowledgeable and I immediately felt like I could really open up to her. I was not rushed at all and she followed up with me after a few days. The acupuncture itself was amazing and my body felt like it was in another world - if you're interested in Acupuncture definitely see Ashley."

-LP

I will absolutely be returning to Ashley at Four Flowers Wellness!

"I really enjoyed my first acupuncture experience. Ashley has a calm, knowledgable way about her that made me feel comfortable. The consultation was not rushed, it felt like she was truly absorbing my history and goals. I didn't immediately feel a "change" that I can describe, but as days go by I feel tension patterns dissipating, which is thrilling. I will absolutely be returning to Ashley at Four Flowers Wellness!."

-CB

My chronic congestion and sinus pressure began to be alleviated after one initial visit...

"I went to see Ashley for treatment for my sinuses. After spending literally hundreds of dollars at specialists and ENTs, my chronic congestion and sinus pressure began to be alleviated after one initial visit here. I returned for monthly visits to complete my treatment and could not be more pleased with my experience and the outcome. I highly recommend Ashley and her practice!"

-Clare A

This is my first acupuncture experience and it has truly been life-changing...

"This is my first acupuncture experience and it has truly been life-changing. I came to Ashley with a few areas to focus on and she has been able to address them wonderfully. I have not just benefited from the acupuncture, but the herbs and other evidence-based advice she has provided me with. Anyone looking for a knowledgeable, resourceful, patient-centered provider should seek out Ashley. Anyone who is hesitant or unsure about acupuncture should most definitely give it a try, you will not regret it."

-Stephanie A

"I went to Ashley at the suggestion of my doctor when I was struggling with severe insomnia and wanted to explore non-pharmaceutical, non-addictive treatments. I'm so glad I found her. On the initial visit we had a comprehensive conversation - she's a wonderful listener - took my concerns seriously asked lots of follow up questions and never made me feel rushed. Ashley made several recommendations for practical implementable lifestyle changes, to be done in conjunction with the acupuncture and moxa treatments.The treatments themselves are something I began to look forward to. While the needle insertion can be a tiny bit uncomfortable, it takes an instant and as soon as they're all in it's actually an incredibly relaxing and meditative experience. Over several weeks I saw my sleep improve dramatically. Later, I began seeing her for shiatsu massage which has done wonders for a really tight neck and shoulders. I can't say enough good things about Ashley - she's been a lifesaver!"

-Lauren M

I highly recommend Ashley at Four Flowers Wellness. She knows what she is doing and is someone I'd trust referring friends and family to go to because I plan to go back myself!

"I was a first timer for acupuncture and have always been intrigued with the healing abilities that had previously knocked my brother of stopping cigarettes (after he tried nearly everything over almost 10 years of smoking). I learned about Four Flowers Wellness because I won a gift card at a silent auction. First of all, I love local businesses that give back to the community so that's worth mentioning. Because I don't really have to many pain points / ailments, I decided to try it out during my first pregnancy as a stress relief and preparation for labor. I really enjoyed my experience of prenatal acupuncture with Ashley. She was extremely informative, knowledgeable and personal. Disclaimer: I don't enjoy needles. That being said, it was not painful at all. Because the needles are so fine (remember, I'm a first timer so this is a review geared towards amateurs) there were just a few points had a bit more pressure and i flinched for a second but that was it. She put a warming lamp over my toes after all the needles were in and let me relax for a while. It was a slight numbing sensation similar to that of laying on the beach when the sun first starts warming your skin. Very relaxing. The morning after, I felt a bit "sore" but in a good way - like a VERY mild version of the kinda sore you feel after a good workout. I really look forward to going back for a follow up session and hope this helps "prepare" for labor and delivery (because I can use all the help I can get). Long story short: I highly recommend Ashley at Four Flowers Wellness. She knows what she is doing and is someone I'd trust referring friends and family to go to because I plan to go back myself!"

-Michelle R

I highly recommend visiting Ashley for anyone who is getting ready to or actively pursuing fertility treatment.

"I have been working with Ashley to help supplement infertility treatments and she has been great to work with. She always spends time listening to my latest updates and documenting important information. It's clear she is detailed and taking new information to help tailor my treatment plan. I highly recommend visiting Ashley for anyone who is getting ready to or actively pursuing fertility treatment."

-Laura M

She always made me feel heard and respected as a patient...

"I came to Ashley initially because she was my Chinese Medicine teacher in massage school, and from that setting it was obvious that she (a) was extremely knowledgeable about eastern medicine and the healing arts and (b) had the ability to connect with people in a kind, compassionate way. I also knew that she had extensive experience treating women's issues, which is what I needed help with. I saw her for acupuncture and herbs and found her treatments to be very helpful. She always made me feel heard and respected as a patient, and she was patient enough to work with me on very persistent and often baffling symptoms. She has studied many treatment modalities and uses this vast breadth of knowledge to offer creative, personalized healing to each individual. Highly recommended!"

-Dana C

"I started seeing Ashley at Four Flowers in the beginning of January as my husband and I were trying to get pregnant. We had be trying for 6 months but wanted to maximize our chances as much as possible. Well lo and behold I got pregnant in February! I truly believe it was the help of acupuncture that got us here. I continued seeing Ashley until I reached 12 weeks. I am currently 22 and definitely planning to get back to Ashley to prepare me for birth. Ashley not only tried to treat me for fertility, but for acne, anxiety, lack of sleep, headaches, sore muscles and any other issue I mentioned to her. The sessions were pleasant and calming, with heated beds and heaters to keep you warm! I loved everything about the experience, Ashley was always welcoming and very sweet. I would highly recommend Ashley to anyone experiencing even the slightest of issues."

Four Flowers is a welcome oasis to help heal and bring relaxation.

"I have been going to Ashley at Four Flowers for a couple of years now. With heavy work travel and stress, I often get headaches and tension in my shoulders and neck. My bi-monthly acupuncture appointments bring relief and help ease the tension in my body. I supplement my acupuncture treatments with shiatsu, which is also very helpful and I leave feeling refreshed and open. Ashley is an expert in her field, takes great care for her patients and creates a calm environment at the studio. In the chaos of daily life (work, family etc.) - Four Flowers is a welcome oasis to help heal and bring relaxation. I highly recommend working with Ashley at Four Flowers."

-Danny W

This is where your body will find peace.

"I absolutely adore Four Flowers. I walk in for an acupuncture session and immediately, even before needles, I'm calm. The space where Ashley works is both immensely calming but also I know I can bring my toddler in for a quick chat. Ashley is wonderful at listening and creating an inviting space. Her assessment and execution is not unlike that of a miracle worker. I've been dealing with sever nerve pain for four months. It's not been aptly diagnosed and my days are struggling to maintain a semblance of feeling like half of a human. After just one session with Ashley I have a better awareness of my body and confidence that acupuncture will be a healing experience. If you're on the fence about it do not hesitate. This is where your body will find peace."
