Ashlynn is an Arnprior local who returned home after completing her Bachelor’s of Kinesiology degree from Acadia University in Nova Scotia, and her Doctor of Chiropractic degree at Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto. Prior to this, Ashlynn went to both elementary and high school in Arnprior, and has been an active member of the Arnprior community her entire life.
Throughout her rigorous education, Ashlynn has achieved several additional certifications. This includes Contemporary Medical Acupuncture, Facial Acupuncture, Webster Technique (special certification in treating pregnant women), Athletic Movement Assessment (for addressing athletes), SMART tools instrument assisted soft tissue therapy, as well as additional courses in pregnancy care, pediatric care, and postpartum rehabilitation. Ashlynn also maintains her membership on the ICPA (International Chiropractic Pediatric Association).
Ashlynn enjoys treating patients using a variety of individualized treatment methods. This includes spinal manipulative therapy, gentle drop piece adjustments, manual soft tissue therapy, instrument assisted soft tissue therapy, acupuncture, postural education, and rehabilitation exercises. Following a thorough assessment, you and Dr. Sullivan will decide together which method of treatment will best meet your individual needs.
In addition to treating the general public, Ashlynn has special interest in treating prenatal and postpartum women throughout their pregnancy and motherhood journey. Her additional certifications, and work as a GROWCO ambassador have given her a special understanding of conditions associated with pregnancy, and what moms may be experiencing post-delivery. This includes low back and pelvic pain during pregnancy, core and pelvic floor weakness post-delivery, and neck and back pain while feeding and carrying baby (and/or toddlers) to name a few.
Ashlynn is looking forward to her return to Arnprior and being a part of the community once again.
