YOUR OAKVILLE OSTEOPATH
Hello, I’m Ashley. I am a manual osteopathic practitioner and exercise physiologist.
For as long as I can remember, I have been fascinated by the human body and it’s movement. As a child, it only seemed fitting that I spent most of my waking hours in a dance studio. As I finished high school, it became clear that continuing to study the human body was my path, so I completed my Bachelor of Kinesiology & Health Sciences from York University and from there went on to become an exercise physiologist. Following university I spent time as a personal trainer and then in clinical research while continuing to dance. I discovered the world of osteopathy following a serious ankle injury, that despite my best efforts, was not healing with typical treatment modalities. I’ll never forget my first osteopathic treatment, whereby the osteopath did a visual assessment of my standing posture and then proceeded to treat my pelvis. In my head all I could think was, “this guy knows I’m here for an ankle problem right?” But, much to my amazement and despite my initial skepticism, my ankle started to feel better for the first time in months. A seed had been planted and I was hooked. Fast forward a decade+ and I am thrilled to have the privilege of assessing and treating clients for a wide range of symptoms and complaints. I am a forever learner who is dedicated to my craft. When I’m not in the clinic or immersed in continuing education, I enjoy spending time with my husband and three children, keeping active and being outdoors in nature.
