Ashley was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She began her love of the musculoskeletal system as a dancer learning a deep awareness of her body sensations, postural alignment and ability to consciously isolate and utilize muscles in intricate and specific ways. She graduated with a BS in Biology and Minor in Dance (Mercyhurst University), a Masters in Exercise Physiology (Case Western Reserve University), and a Doctorate in Physical Therapy (Drexel University). She has provided physical therapy services backstage to Broadway dancers in New York City, Paul Taylor Modern Company, Pennsylvania Ballet in Philadelphia and to the general orthopedic population in three outpatient clinics. Inspired by her passion for physical therapy, she co-created Embody Healing Center.
Michael completed his undergraduate work at Mercyhurst University and holds a Master of Science from Walden University. Michael taught in various school settings until he left education to empower families struggling with teen drug addiction. While completing his certificate of Theological studies at the Seminary, Michael opened a Healing Practice and school of Reiki. He primarily worked with Hospice patients to reach clarity before dying, assisting their families with grief and helping the hospice staff with self-care. Then Michael began to practice meditation and mantra, five to ten hours a day for a five year period. Michael was also trained in a unique system of meditation-based therapy called the Inner Space Techniques (IST), developed by the Clairvision School of Meditation. He journeyed to India, Peru and Mexico to further his research in Personal Healing and Self Mastery. Michael teaches Mantra Meditation to modern-day seekers, one-on-one, in weekly classes in Ashland, OR and at sacred sites around the world. He loves holding courses in your home town, email us if you would like to set up an event.
