The pilates method, originally called “contrology” is a system of movement and therapeutic exercises developed over a span of 60 years by German born “Joseph H Pilates”.

The method executed with precision, works by toning and rebalancing the muscles around joints. It stimulates circulation, improves joint range of motion and facilitates alignment of the skeletal system. Pilates also creates new neuromuscular patterns, improves coordination and enhances body awareness. The Pilates method helps prevent further injury and reduces chronic pain.

The elegance of the work makes it adaptable and effective for anybody of any age and furthermore, this model is now fully supported by current neuroscience.

Ashley is a bilingual Physiotherapy Resident at Trimetrics Physiotherapy. She grew up in Ottawa, Ontario in an active family where she was exposed at a young age to the benefits of living a healthy and happy lifestyle. She engaged in various recreational sports and creative activities with a focus and passion for dance. Having taken her first ballet class at the age of 3, and through continued dancing into adulthood, Ashley has developed a true appreciation and passion for movement.

Ashley obtained her Bachelor of Health Sciences at the University of Ottawa. Her continued passion for health, movement, and working with others led her to pursue her Master of Science in Physical Therapy at Queen’s University, in Kingston Ontario. She has completed her Level 1 certification under the Orthopedic division of the Canadian Physiotherapy Association, with plans to complete further levels.

Ashley has gained experience working with patients of all ages, from recreational to semi-professional athletes, patients with neurological and cardiorespiratory conditions, and more. These opportunities have further confirmed her love for working one-on-one with clients and found a strong interest in musculoskeletal and neurological conditions. This is one of the reasons that Ashley has landed at Trimetrics Physiotherapy.

Grounded in client-centered goals, Ashley uses education, hands-on techniques, exercise-programs, and other evidence-based treatments to take a collaborative and active approach to rehabilitation. By enabling her patients with the tools and confidence to be active participants in their recovery, she believes in the importance of taking a person-centered approach and discovering the root cause of someone’s symptoms.

As one of the owners of Trimetrics Physiotherapy, Clinical Pilates and Complementary Health, my goal is to maintain both the culture and model of care delivery that the team has created here over the past two decades.

As a clinician I believe in the BioPsychoSocial model of health care. What is this model that has been around for 3 decades but is more recently spoken of these days as the NEW way?

The “bio” portion refers to our biology; this includes our hormonal health, gut health and microbiome diversity, nutritional status and more. Our internal health status can have a profound impact on injury recovery, concussion recovery and chronic pain. This biological domain also includes our human nervous system, muscular and skeletal systems, tissues, and cells right down to the biochemistry of every molecule in the body.

The “psycho” portion refers to our psychology. This includes changes within our nervous systems called neuroplasticity, and these changes can be for the better or, the worse. This includes mindset and the concept of emotional resilience to pain, hardship and other life challenges.

The “social” portion refers to a person’s social supports and work environment. In a concussion injury, for example, many people have headaches. Still, it is how YOUR headaches affect your life, your work, your family, and it is YOUR biology that makes your headaches unique and specific to you.

So this term, biopsychosocial, is both a fancy word to describe three critical portions of being human, and also strings together the three portions because each of them is intimately linked to and inseparable from the others.

Physiotherapy as a profession is in a unique position to influence client behaviour perhaps more so than any other health professional. We spend the time getting to know and understand our clients, and we have the clinical knowledge and expertise to understand the root cause of many conditions. In this way, physiotherapy is a profession best suited to the biopsychosocial model of care.

I’ve had a wonderful career that has taken me from the clinic to the fields of professional soccer, to caring for the son of a dictator, to biomechanics research, to writing and creating concussion treatment programs, and to leadership of clinical teams that are serving and helping thousands of people each and every month.

My clinical passion is to help people with complex injuries and conditions and to take on each case as a unique situation with unique solutions.

As the Clinical Director at Trimetrics, I view my primary role as that of supporting all members of the team so that their needs are met personally and professionally. With this foundation, the team can best serve and support the North Shore community to the best of their abilities.

Outside of clinical life, I am now (2023) retired from the board of directors of the Physiotherapy Association of British Columbia where I advocated both for the physiotherapy profession across the province and also for the physiotherapy curriculum in BC. I also sit on the University of Victoria’s Health Sciences Advisory Committee, where we oversee the health science courses delivered through the university. My wife Renee and I have been married 36 years and we’re parents to 3 outstanding sons who have grown to become fine young men. We love hiking around the many wonderful trails of the North Shore and lower mainland and we also love great food from many different cultures.

I’m looking forward to meeting you all!
