What Can We Help You With? 

We understand that the female body is uniquely equipped for childbirth. However, often some extra professional help before and after birth can help lessen the physical discomfort experience by women during pregnancy, delivery and recovery.
We provide pre and post natal care, helping women to prepare for vaginal or ceasarian birth through evidence-based exercise, manual therapy and advice.

We also address conditions women encounter throughout the lifespan, our Women's Health Physiotherapist's can assist with :


• Back and Pelvic Pain

• Abdominal Separation

• Bladder Leakage

• Prolapse

• Sexual Pain or Dysfunction

• Endometriosis

• IBS

• Constipation

• Postpartum Return to Exercise

• Reproductive Health

• Prenatal Health

• Birth Preparation

Emsella Therapy

If an evaluation by your doctor or physio determines that you suffer from persistent stress or urge incontinence, Emsella is a non-invasive treatment that has been proven to alleviate symptoms. 

While remaining fully clothed, you sit on the Emsella chair for approximately 30 minutes. Emsella uses focused, high-intensity electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology to stimulate the deep muscles of the pelvic floor, causing them to contract. A single Emsella session produces thousands of supramaximal pelvic floor muscle contractions, which serve to re-educate women’s pelvic floor muscles. It produces the same result as doing 10,000 pelvic floor exercises in a half hour. Typically, patients will need two treatments per week for three weeks for a total of six treatments. Most patients report a significant, remarkable improvement in strengthened muscles and bladder control and sexual wellness.
