Ashley Dykstra

Ashley Dykstra

Registered Massage Therapist

Ashley graduated from Sir Sanford Fleming College in 2018 with an advanced diploma in Massage Therapy and the honour of being named valedictorian of the School of Health & Wellness. She is registered with the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario and is a member in good standing. She has experience working in multidisciplinary settings and with clients of different ages, backgrounds and activity levels.

Ashley brings a long history of athletic experience with her to Trent Health in Motion. Prior to becoming a registered massage therapist, Ashley trained and competed with the Canadian National Rowing Team for ten years. She was part of the 2008, 2012 and 2016 Olympic Rowing teams and won a silver medal in the women’s 8+ at the 2012 London Games. Ashley credits getting regular physiotherapy and massage therapy treatments with keeping her healthy, happy and mostly injury-free during her career on the National Team.

Ashley uses her background and experience as an athlete to help her understand how the body works and how massage can help decrease pain, improve movement and reduce stress. She enjoys working with people of all ages and sport backgrounds and uses a variety of massage therapy techniques to deliver the best outcomes for her clients.

Based in London, Ontario while rowing, Ashley first moved to Peterborough in 2012. Though she returned to London to train for the 2016 Olympics, Ashley has been calling the City of Kawartha Lakes home since 2014. She lives between Peterborough and Lindsay and spends her time outside of the clinic exploring the great outdoors with her husband, her daughter and Penny, her Australian Shepherd.
