Dr. Ashley graduated from Hawaii Pacific University in 2010 and recieved her bachelors degree in Natural Science. She continued her education in Southern California to attend Los Angeles College of Chiropractic, graduating with her Doctorate of Chiropractic in December of 2013. After graduation she moved back to O'ahu and has been practicing on the North Shore since 2014.
Dr. Ashley then became a huge advocate for Chiropractic after a swimming injury in high school and has since learned even more about the benefits of not only pain relief, but the entire function of the body. The human body is self-healing and everything it needs to be healthy comes from the innate intelligence inside. When the vertebrae of the spine are out of alignment, it may cause pain in the surrounding area due to pressure from the mis-aligned bone. This also causes decreased function of that nerve because the brain is not able to communicate with the body as well, but when that interference is removed by an adjustment it is more capable of adapting to whatever stress it may be under; be it physcial trauma, toxins from our environment or emotional issues. When the entire nervous system is involved, it is not just about the back and neck pain. That is your body telling you there is an issue with it's function.
Dr. Ashley practices what she preaches through healthy lifestyle habits. Along with getting adjusted regularly, she stays active through hiking, yoga and surfing, as well as making sure to eat a clean, balanced diet to support her body through the healing process of everyday stressors.
Getting adjusted helps the body to function at a higher level than if there were interference. She sees patient's of all types and ages; from injuries and accidents to newborns and elderly. Everyone should have their nervous system checked so that we are functioning at our highest potential.
