Our Story

Albuquerque School of Healing Arts (ASHA) grew out of the strong desire shared by Laura Freed and Sarah Ferrell to train and educate the next generation of massage therapists, energetic bodyworkers and natural healers. Both women have been members of the Albuquerque community and have made careers in these professions. Laura was a Lead Instructor at a school in Albuquerque that has recently closed. This closure has left a large gap in the market that ASHA aims to fill. 

ASHA is Albuquerque’s only holistic, local, independent massage school. ASHA is women-owned and committed to the health and wellbeing of the Albuquerque community. ASHA’s teachers are practicing professionals in a wide range of bodywork modalities with a passion for sharing their wealth of knowledge and inspiring others in the pursuit of personal health and careers in the healing arts. ASHA is committed to honoring the integrity of the principles of natural therapeutics, and is a supportive and encouraging environment for students to explore all the various offerings the diverse curriculum offers.
