Ashley qualified as a Registered Massage Therapist (RMT), after receiving her diploma with honours from McKay Massage and Hydrotherapy, Saskatoon, Canada in 2007. Ashley is currently a member of the Massage Therapy Association of Saskatchewan (MTAS). Soon after graduation, Ashley moved to Hong Kong to begin her practicing career. Since then, Ashley has received additional training in Positional Release Therapy and Advanced Soft Tissues Manipulation, Advanced Anatomy, Deep Tissue Therapy, Breast Massage, Acupuncture and Cupping.
As a Massage Therapist, Ashley offers General Swedish Massage with a therapeutic focus using a variety of techniques such as Deep Tissue, Trigger point therapy, Myofacial Release, and Lymphatic Drainage. Ashley also offers treatments for Pre/Post-Natal, Infant, Acute and Chronic Pain, Headaches and Migraines, and General maintenance. In her 14 years of practice, Ashley has treated a wide range of clientele, from new-borns, to corporate warriors, to athletes, to senior citizens, and everyone in-between.
Ashley developed a passion for how the human body functions and responds to pain after having endured two car accidents. On her quest to eliminate her pain, Ashley turned to educating herself by studying Massage Therapy.
It is her belief that massage is a huge benefit for managing acute and chronic pain and with the proper treatment, clients can learn to live a more relaxed and pain-free lifestyle. This can in turn help to manage anxiety, insomnia, and stress. Ashley provides her clients with a tailor-made treatment, by assessing any postural, structural and muscular imbalances, which over time, can pre-dispose a client towards pain or injury. Treatments will focus on identifying the cause of discomfort, and treating the cause.
Ashley spent her younger years as a competitive figure skater, volleyball player, and track athlete. She also competed on a national level as an arm-wrestler. This athletic past has helped Ashley to develop a greater understanding of the importance of health and self-care.
