About Hayley Ware

NC LMBT: License #19480

Hailing from Hillsborough, NC, I graduated from Carolina Massage Institute in 2021, and I am a member of Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals (ABMP). Utilizing my B.A. in Dance from Hollins University, I combine a strong knowledge of anatomy mixed with a dancer’s intuition to help unwind my clients' bodies.

Believing that my practice is truly that, a practice, I will blend whatever techniques you need to best treat your mind and body.

My favorite, and most requested modality, is "Ashiatsu" barefoot massage, where I've completed advanced-level training from the Center for Barefoot Massage.

However, I am also trained in Swedish, deep tissue, cupping, and TMJ (temporo-mandibular joint) techniques.




My Space

I primarily practice out of Durham Community Bodywork at 906 Broad St. in Durham, near the 9th Street area and Duke University's East Campus.

There are plenty of parking spots in the gravel lot behind our building, as well as free street parking along Broad Street. Handicap accessible parking is located just off our driveway between 904 and 906 Broad St.  

My practice is a short walk from GoDurham buses to Duke and Downtown Durham. The nearest bus stops are for the 11 and 11B buses at:


Here are some common questions and answers.

What is Ashiatsu?

While Ashiatsu may be relatively unknown in the west, it's as close to the O.G. massage technique that we know. Historians have found evidence throughout Asia of folks practicing this modality more than 2,000 years ago. If it ain’t broke… don’t fix it!

In Japanese, ashi (足) means foot, and atsu (圧) means pressure. So, Ashiatsu practitioners utilize their feet and gravity to deliver long, deep, broad strokes to address your tissue issues. Depending on your unique body, I can either use one or two feet, and always have full control of my pressure.

Is Ashiatsu for everyone?

Most people can receive Ashiatsu massage. However, there are instances where it would be unsafe to perform this modality. Please note that your health is always evolving. If it is unsafe to receive barefoot massage now, it may be safe in the future, and vice versa.

Ashiatsu may not be safe for those who are/have:

  • Pregnant
  • General sickness, including the common cold, the flu, and Covid-19
  • Skin infections or ulcers
  • Unexplained swelling
  • Certain uncontrolled chronic conditions such as: (hypertension, diabetes)
  • Recent broken bones
  • Severe osteoporosis
  • Liver and kidney disorders
  • History of aneurysms or thrombosis (blood clots)
  • The following surgeries:
    • Lymph node removal
    • Breast implants, in the past year
    • Eye surgery (including Lasik), recently
  • Taken any of the following medications:
    • Blood thinners
    • Medication that inhibits sensation

What is cupping?

Like ashiatsu massage, cupping has been around for more than 2,000 years. You can even find mention of this therapy in some of the very first medical texts in China. There are many different ways to perform this technique.

In my practice, I typically use silicone cups to do the following tasks:

  • Loosen up overly tight swaths of connective tissue including fascia, which acts like velcro that covers your muscles and much more). This can help break apart adhesions that can prevent muscles, and whole muscle systems from working optimally.
  • Encouraging lymphatic fluid to pump throughout the body. Our lymphatic system (think of it like the Department of Defense mixed with the Department of Sanitation) mirrors our circulatory system. But unlike our circulatory system, the lymphatic system has no pump like the heart. So due to lack of movement, fascial adhesions, etc, this fluid can get stuck and cause swelling and pain.

Is cupping for everyone?

If you have a blood disorder, are on high doses of blood thinners, have active cancer, skin trauma, or fragile skin, cupping may not be appropriate for you.

How does sliding scale payment work?

My primary goal is to make my services accessible, and that means allowing people to pay what they can afford. All of my services are covered under this sliding scale model.

This is why I list a range of prices for my services instead of one fixed rate. You can either choose to pay my recommended rates, or you can pay as much as you're willing to afford within the listed range -no questions asked. No matter how much you pay, you'll still get the same degree of care and attention when I work with you.

This arrangement is possible thanks to my Community Fund. Click here to learn more!


Don't just take it from me! Here are what my clients have said about my massages -and what they could look like for you.

I have an uncommon medical condition and I was unsure if I could receive massages. [...] Hayley voluntarily researched my medical condition and implemented precautions to avoid any issues for me. Her attention to client needs [...] resulted in the BEST massage ever.

Hayley constantly checked in with me and really did care about where I carried pain. She even gave me advice about how to continue relieving back and shoulder pain after my session. I could not be more thankful for Hayley's expertice and kindness.

Hayley is very knowledgeable. She was very attentive. Listened to me about what was going on, answered any questions I had about the process and helped me get the relief I so desperately needed. Definitely will be seeing her again!

My session with Hayley was a dream! She listens and pays close attention to any pain points, and she's so strong! The way she applied pressure to my mid-back was revelatory. [...] I left her studio feeling like a whole new person. I would visit her twice a week if I could!
