Ashley Schofield, RMT, Owner of Unity Wellness Massage Therapy

Ashley Schofield

Ashley joined Unity Wellness in May 2009, back when it was Bearspaw Chiropractic.  She offers her massage therapy clients the benefit of nearly a decade of experience in massage therapy and yoga instruction.  She is also schooled in reflexology and aromatherapy.  Ashley caters her treatments to improving the muscular health and joint mobility to her client’s needs.  She can provide a relaxation massage to enhance circulation and decrease stress hormones, or apply deeper tissue pressure to reduce muscular restrictions that can benefit posture and sport performance.  

As a mom of two, Ashley is also committed to providing exceptional pre and postnatal care.  She uses the body bolster system so that moms-to-be are still able to lay on their bellies and be in optimum position for baby safety and to release muscular tension.

Ashley is passionate about staying active – running, yoga, weights, or dancing – and has had injuries too and understands these negative setbacks.  Regular massage therapy can reduce the reoccurrence and length these injuries put us out for.  She doesn’t want muscular pain to get in the way of her clients living the lives they want.  The optimum goal is to get patients pain-free in their day to day living.

“Don’t ask yourself what the world needs; ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go and do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” ~Harold Whitman

Lindsay Cherrington, RMT

FullSizeRenderWith prior lifeguarding experience prevention has always been important. My life is filled with camping, kayaking, and hiking in the summer. Skating and sledding excursions in the winter and a passion for swimming that goes year-round. I also have a love of books that sometimes keeps me studying or reading for hours on end. For both spectrums of life, your body has limits and knowledge of massage has given me great tools of self-care.

An education in massage therapy has given my tendency to help an avenue and illuminated some interests in sports massage, fascial release, and remedial therapeutic techniques. Including mobilizing joints and muscular contractions used to increase range of motion. I can effectively advise on home care planning including exercise and stretching to encourage prevention and self-improvement. I plan to expand my existing knowledge of manual lymph drainage (MLD), myofascial release, sports massage, and have an interest in adding craniosacral massage.

I have experience with technique adaptations for children, pregnancy, and the elderly. My secondary employment is with a swim school. A part time, paired with school, job and the most rewarding I’ve had. Working with children in fitness allows me to see the importance of an active, healthy family.
