Have you ever had a dream that somehow became a reality? We have—our brick building on Hudson Avenue where we specialize in therapeutic massage has been a long time dream. Anna and I have worked together since 2004. Our doors opened on April 1st 2011, the best birthday present I could have asked for!
Breathe Massage Therapy is a place where our clients can receive a massage that will have long-term benefits, not just serve as a Band-aid to their ailments. Our exceptional therapists have seen the amazing changes massage can make and want to share them with you. They will customize a plan that will truly benefit your health.
Give us your body for an hour and we will give you back your mind.
We got our name because we want our space to be a place you can come in, sit back, and just be able to BREATHE!

April Ashbee, LMT
I have been providing professional massage therapy services to the Delmar area since 2004 and also am a graduate from Albany’s Center for Natural Wellness School of Massage Therapy. I believe that regular therapeutic massage is not a luxury but an integral part of a healthy lifestyle.
In these poor economic times, it’s important to keep yourself healthy, relaxed, and de-stressed. It’s hard to concentrate on work and family when you have an achy back or stiff neck. My practice focuses on Swedish, Deep Tissue and Hot and Cold Stone Therapy. I am also fully trained in Prenatal massage and Therapeutic Reflexology. I will tailor our session to your individual requests.
I am also a fitness and nutrition enthusiast. I've been on a journey to lead a healthier lifestyle and in the process lost 52lbs. Follow my journey at www.superfitmomma.com
April is Co-Owner of Breathe Massage and was Voted "Best Massage" by Metroland 2009 & 2010
Anna Burns, LMT
I have been involved in the massage community since 2001, and at least annually, study and become certified in another modality to bring to the table. My massages can include: Swedish, Deep Tissue, Hot or Cold Stone Therapy, Positional Therapy, Sports Massage, Reiki, Craniosacral techniques, and acupressure, sometimes all in one session, and are always tailored to your individual needs. I am also trained in Prenatal Massage.
What I love most about being a massage therapist is fulfilling the need for touch through massage and the healing energy exchange that goes on during a session. Keeping this in mind, know that I will always respect and honor your personal space.
People often arrive for a session saying, “I looked forward to this all day/week.” They comment simply laying on the table is nice, until after the massage, when they stumble out, neck and shoulders dropped down, lower back pain relieved, and even more relaxed and peaceful.
Anna is Co-Owner of Breathe Massage and was voted 'Best Massage' by Metroland 2010.

I am a NYS Board Licensed, Certified, Professional Massage Therapist, and a member in good standing of the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA). I specialize in Healthy Aging Massage and Wellness for Women 50+. I have been providing massage therapy and wellness for over 10 years. I have grown with my clients as much as they have grown with me. If they have issues that are not within my scope of practice, I refer out to another professional that I have gone to or have had direct contact with. I am a Certified Compassionate Touch (tm) Practitioner, a Certified Medical Assistant, and a Young Living Essential Oils (tm) distributor and educator.
I am continually learning about essential oils and their ability to enhance life (on an emotional, physical, spiritual level) without the use of chemicals. I have been using Young Living Essential Oils (tm) on my clients, my family, and myself for the past 10 years and have found they are the highest quality oils available. I have studied the many benefits of these oils in relationship to helping women 50+. I believe in the power of the oils and I can personally testify that they have had life-changing results for many of my clients and myself. I also sell the oils and can help with signing you up to become a member of the Young Living Essential Oil (tm) Company so you can purchase them at wholesale prices for yourself and your family. Also, if you are interested in having a Young Living Essential Oil (tm) Home or Business Gathering or you need someone to give a presentation on Essential Oils and Massage for Women 50+, please do not hesitate to contact me.
I also offer Compassionate Touch (tm) Massage. This newest outgrowth of my practice provides gentle massage for elders, people who are housebound or ill, or at end stage of life with personal visits to their homes, assisted-living facilities, hospitals, senior housing, or nursing home/rehab facilities. Taking into consideration the needs of each individual, the elder client is provided with the appropriate comforting and compassionate touch therapy. I do love to work with this generation as it gives to me the joy and pleasure of seeing their smiles when they finally receive some loving touch. I will go on a regular basis to any of the above mentioned places within a mileage scope. Please feel free to contact me if you or your company would like to discuss the possibilities.
I have extensive training in various professional massage therapy techniques. These include: Healthy Aging Massage for Women 50+, Swedish Massage, Ayurvedic Massage, Acupressure, Pain Management, Raindrop Technique, Trigger Point Massage, Myofascial Release, Indian Head Massage, Geriatric Massage, Hospital and Cancer Massage, Pregnancy Massage, Infants and Children Massage, Aviana Massage, Reflexology, Warm or Cold "CoreStones®" Massage, Craniosacral, Energy Medicine, and Aromatherapy.

I am a graduate of Austin’s School of Spa Technology and I love what I do! Aside from working at Breathe Massage, I also work at the only Forbes Four-Star Spa outside of NYC. I divide my time between both places, but I am proud to call Breathe Massage my home base.
To me, the skins amazing resiliency is what makes it so fascinating! I believe that educating my clients about skin comes with the job. It brings me great pleasure in knowing that when they leave, they will have a better understanding of their own skin, as well as being completely relaxed and glowing!

Rebecca Haught, LMT
I graduated from Mildred Elley and received my license to practice massage therapy last summer (2011), but delayed beginning practicing to have my second daughter. I am passionate about improving lives and bodies through massage therapy. I believe that rest and relaxation are a vital piece of living a happy and healthy life. I hope to study energy work, prenatal massage and infant massage but I am open to go where ever this journey wants to take me! I currently offer a relaxing swedish massage and a restorative deep tissue massage. As a new therapist in the field I am grateful for the opportunity to work with you and join you in your pursuit of wellness!
