Ariel Hubbard, who was the lead instructor for AscendCE for 5 years, and who helped create the pilot program for its online pivot during the Covid-19 pandemic, has become CEO for AscendCE.
“I am delighted to have this opportunity, and I look forward to providing in-person, online live and on-demand courses so that massage therapists can maintain their educational requirements, and thus, their business licenses.”
“The field of massage has changed quite a bit, especially during the era of the Covid-19 pandemic. There are many opportunities for success and we will be there to expand education and provide more opportunities for therapists.”
Ariel is a veteran of the holistic health field, having been involved for 33 years and educated over 6,-000 people in the holistic healing arts. She is looking forward to working with AscendCE.
We are excited to offer a return to live massage and energywork classes in 2021! We will be offering classes in smaller groups, with a socially-distanced table spacing, masking, temperature checks and Covid-19 symptom screening!
We are also offering new classes, like the Level-Up Your Massage Series, the Lymphatic Clearing Series, the online Clinical Hypnotherapy Series, the Updated Ethics Rules and Laws (new changes coming 9/1/21) and much more!
Breaking news! Energywork classes STILL count as CE’s for WA massage therapists! (Just not the 8 hours of hands-on training). You CAN take energywork classes for CE’s! This information was verified by Megan Maxey at the Department of Health as of mid-April, 2021.
Also! The Board of Massage will be deciding if they will continue to allow the 8-hours of hands-on training after June 2021. We offer online classes AND are now offering LIVE massage classes! Click here for the class updates!
Pricing is always a concern, no matter what product or service we buy or offer. Massage Therapists and Healers are also affected by inflation and increases in the cost of living. Our goal is to provide outstanding customer service and meet client needs while receiving a living wage commensurate with training (over 34 years of training and experience (over 30,000 sessions provided).
As of August 2023, rate changes for treatments are as follows:
$150 for 60 minutes in WA, $200 an hour when when distance travel is included
$225 for 90 minutes when distance travel is included
$300 for 120 minutes, pricing is higher when distance travel is included
Private course fees will change to $75 an hour beginning July 2022. Our online education prices are nominal for 4-hour courses if you are seeking inexpensive pricing for short courses. You may also organize a group course for a less expensive rate.
Below are photos from a recent retreat we experienced in the Whistler, BC, Canada area. We offer a variety of private retreats in the Pacific Northwest and Sedona areas.
Personal/Spiritual Development and Transformation: We offer a Sedona Vortex Experience where you would have access to vortices that work with specific chakras, as well as electrical, magnetic, electromagnetic voretexes. Ariel has been traveling to Sedona since 1989 and will be your guide. We will also discuss the properties of the chakras and assist you to process energetic or practical stagnation related to them in order to transform how you flow your internal energy and experience your life.

Natural Cultural Lore/History: Visit sacred sites and learn about the culture, history and lore of a variety of cultures, depending on whether you would like your retreat in the Pacific Northwest or in Sedona, Arizona. Visit archaeological sites, sacred sites, museums or other relevant locations, depending on the type of retreat you select.
