Ashley Gwyneth grew up in York, Maine as a very athletic and school-oriented child. She was a gymnast, on sports teams, an honors student, and served on an HIV/AIDS awareness education team for New England. After a severe back injury, she began a downward spiral for years of physical "dis-ease" with partial paralysis of the digestive system, endocrine system imbalance, among many other side effects and ailments. Having to trade out sports, school, extracurriculars, and a regular kid life for constant testing/treatment in hospitals and excessive prescription medications, her emotional/spiritual strength and courage began to wain as well. After feeling largely failed by western medicine's approach to her, she sought help from a Chinese Acupuncturist that changed her life. She has since been guided and mentored by her Shaman/MD, her Reiki masters, and many gurus along the way that have provided traditional medicines and methods for her own health and the teachings for the health and well being of others.

The ocean and surfing has been her meditation and respite since her childhood accident, leading to a life of teaching surfing to all walks of life in USA, Canada, Costa Rica, Hawaii, Mexico, and Puerto Rico. The transition from teaching surfing to providing healing with Reiki happened organically over the years as she began to see her students needing not only surfing technique instruction but also life guidance, support, love, acceptance, and release.

She completed her Reiki training in Puerto Rico and New York and started her first practice in Manhattan, NY in conjunction with Rolfers, Pilates Instructors, and Physical Therapists. She continued her private practice in St Augustine, Florida and became a professor in the continuing education department at Flagler College in 2017 teaching Eastern energy medicine philosophies. She currently practices in Montreal, Canada.
