Dr. Andrew Ashton

Dr. Ashton practices at A Therapeutic Effect, a wellness center he and his wife Sue, a former massage therapist, have grown since 2007. He is a graduate of Sherman College of Straight Chiropractic, in Spartanburg, SC. Prior to chiropractic school, he graduated from Ursinus College with a B.S. in Exercise and Sports Science. He was a student trainer for 4 years and was later inducted to Phi Epsilon Kappa, the Exercise and Sports Science honor society.
Driven by his desire to give his patients the ultimate in care, Ashton went on to receive his certification in Torque Release Technique from the Holder Research Institute. He chose to specialize in this chiropractic modality because it has been proven superior in providing immediate results and can be used on people of any age. This technique is very specific, low-impact and uses a handheld instrument to directly resonate with the area of spinal dysfunction that is causing nerve interference, or spinal subluxation.
Wide range of conditions and his patient base is comprised of newborns, athletes, expectant mothers, senior citizens, pets, and many others. Additionally, at A Therapeutic Effect, patients can benefit from integrating the other wellness services offered on site, including massage therapy.
