Registered Physiotherapist
Pelvic Health Physiotherapist

Michelle is a pelvic health advocate and educator who works with persons of all genders experiencing pelvic floor dysfunction or interested in understanding the complexities of pelvic health. She is on a mission to empower people in Canada and internationally to take charge of their pelvic health, which can often be a life changing experience for anyone who has suffered pelvic health dysfunction.

Michelle's dedication to making pelvic health internationally accessible is furthered by her commitment to her own continuing education. She's earned her Masters of Education at OISE, specializing in global health education, and has been involved with teaching physiotherapists advanced orthopaedic skills both in Canada and in Nicaragua.

Michelle has been working as a physiotherapist in orthopaedics since 1994. In 2004 she obtained her Advanced Diploma of Manipulative Therapy, and she is a Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Manipulative Physiotherapists. Michelle is an instructor with the Canadian Physiotherapy Association (CPA) and acts as clinical research advisor to physiotherapy students at the University of Toronto.

In addition to being an orthopaedic and pelvic health physiotherapist, Michelle is a certified yoga instructor. She incorporates many of the physical and philosophical principles of yoga into her physiotherapy practice. Combining knowledge gathered from both of these worlds, she performs yoga movement analysis, helping patients avoid or recover from injuries that may affect their practice. Other treatment modalities include education, exercise, joint and soft tissue mobilization, joint manipulation, and acupuncture.

Michelle acts as a peer assessor for the College of Physiotherapists of Ontario, interviewing and coaching physiotherapists regarding standards of practice of the profession.
