I had no idea that I required help with strengthening my pelvic floor until I mentioned to my GP that I sometimes felt my bladder was dropping. I was directed to the Pelvic Health Centre and was introduced to Amy Price, one of the Physiotherapists.
She made me feel comfortable right from the beginning while examining the state of my muscle strength, and provided feedback along with some excellent and simple daily exercises. She also wrote them out for me and included a visual tip to use while doing them, which made it easy to follow the routine. I attended the clinic several times over 3 months, getting new exercise variations each time along with a status on my progress. By the end of that period, I reached the point where the muscles felt firm and my comfort level in that area had increased substantially.
The clinic was highly professional and Amy was an absolute delight to work with. She was warm, easy to chat with, was knowledgeable and also made me chuckle a few times. I would recommend her and the clinic to anyone needing this type of treatment.

I was extremely hesitant to pursue pelvic therapy initially but having worked with my pelvic physiotherapist over the past two months, I have regained a significant amount of my confidence after the birth of my child. My pelvic floor physiotherapist was extremely professional and knowledgeable. She was incredibly patient with all my questions which put me at ease and went a long way in building trust. Thank you so very much!

An excellent clinic with caring, professional staff. My physiotherapist was amazing to work with. I went from feeling constantly worried, anxious about my interstitial cystitis, pelvic pain to forgetting I even have it. A pleasure to work with and I highly highly recommend. Feeling very thankful I found this clinic. A+

My pelvic physiotherapist was just what I needed during my pregnancy and postpartum. She helped me to walk (prenatally) and heal properly (postnatally). She was friendly, knowledgeable and made exercises realistic for a pregnant/postnatal mom. I'll be back (gladly) if I ever need the support.

This experience changed by life. I could never have expected that something I never knew existed would become something I couldn't imagine living without. The staff at Proactive were so friendly and professional. I never felt rushed or pressured or anything short of welcome and supported. Over the past few months I have been taught how to reclaim my sexuality and womanhood. I have a functioning (hopefully soon to be thriving), positive relationship with my vagina again, and I want to shout my thanks from the rooftops! Thank you Proactive Pelvic Health Centre!!

I was in very bad shape suffering from chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CPPS) with no help from doctors except pills with no improvement. Here, I received treatment, advice and HOPE. My life is getting back to normal.

PPHC and my pelvic physiotherapist were great at assessing my pelvic floor health and provided me a great treatment plan to get back on track with my goal of running postpartum. I'd highly recommend PPHC for anyone looking for a pelvic floor physiotherapist pre or postpartum. Thank you for being patient, friendly, clear with instruction and motivating.

I had a very good experience at Proactive Pelvic Health Centre. My physiotherapist was very knowledgeable, professional and friendly. She did a thorough exam and provided a program that changed to meet my needs. I couldn't recommend this organization more.

My pelvic physiotherapist was a huge help. I had been to several doctors with little to no help for (male) perineal pain. After two months of physiotherapy, I am almost painfree.

Delivering my baby girl was one of the most empowering and awe-inspiring moments of my life. Without the pelvic floor work I did with my physiotherapist this beautiful moment would have been much harder and scarier. Every woman should see a pelvic floor physio before giving birth, it just makes sense. You wouldn’t run a marathon without training, why would you give birth without training. It is definitely one of the most physically demanding things you will ever do.

The pelvic work my physiotherapist taught me really made sense. She explained it well and if you follow the plan and do your exercises you will get results. My pelvic physiotherapist was the only healthcare professional to give me hope and tangible results for the management of my bladder pain syndrome.

I had a daughter six years ago, then a son 21 months later. I have had weak pelvic floor muscles since then. Every sneeze, I had to cross my legs and sometimes even that wouldn't help. I am amazed that after only one month, I saw huge improvements. This therapy was 100% effective. I only wish I had come sooner.

I wanted to reach out to say a HUGE thank you for playing such an important role in my journey with overcoming vaginismus. Thanks to your help I'm in a loving, monogamous relationship now where I have lots of amazing, pain-free sex! I also had my first pap smear recently, which was scary and empowering at the same time. I can't believe how far I've come since I first walked into Proactive Pelvic Health Centre, and I couldn't be more proud of myself. Anyways, I just wanted to let you know that you truly made such a monumental impact on my life by helping me to overcome my disorder by treating me with so much kindness and empathy.

Proactive Pelvic Health Centre was one of the best finds! At 63 years old I was starting to get urgency incontinence. My physiotherapist was kind and respectful as she walked me through the various techniques that would help with bladder function. Today I feel more confident and relaxed.

I searched for a really good pelvic physiotherapist and came across Proactive Pelvic Health Centre. I can truly say that all the staff are courteous, very helpful and knowledgeable. My physiotherapist really knew her stuff and helped me get over my fear and anxiety. She was always warm and friendly making my appointments less daunting and more comfortable. My first appointment were initial questions and getting to know the therapist. Instantly, I knew I was in great hands. She explained very thoroughly what my next appointments would look like so that I didn’t have any surprises. I saw her weekly then progressed to biweekly then monthly. During my appointments, I had manual therapy done which at first took some time for me to get over. She had given me ways to get over my fear, helped me find trigger points, how to manage my anxiety, taught me how to do my own manual stretches and recommended exercises I needed to start doing at home. I have learned so much from Proactive Pelvic Health Centre and the world of pelvic physio. I can successfully say I have finished my treatments with great confidence! I am so thankful I came across this clinic! I am definitely coming back for my pregnancy pelvic strengthening.

My son Theo is doing very well lately - we've had very few if any accidents in the few past weeks, so we would like to thank our pelvic physiotherapist who was truly wonderful to work with. We had seen several doctors and specialists before coming to PPHC, but it was the exercises and suggestions our physiotherapist advised and making some minor changes to our routine that finally solved our issues. It has been life-changing. Thank you, Leeana - you are very good at what you do and you are wonderful with kids.

I was very happy with my PPHC experience: My pelvic physiotherapist was excellent in terms of expertise and results, as well as patient relations, and communication. Pelvic health issues are indeed under-recognized and I would heartily recommend pelvic health care at PPHC to anyone. Five Stars!!

When I came through the doors of PPHC, I had already given up on seeking out the care of various other health care providers, had had a hymenectomy with no positive results, gone through periods of confusion and years of frustration. From my own research I suspected that I had vaginismus and asked my family physician to refer me to PPHC. I did not know that such a thing as pelvic physiotherapy existed and was excited to find out about it, especially after most of my internet-based research seemed to suggest treatment such as botox and other ways which did not seem realistic to me. When I was asked, during the first physiotherapy session, to describe my experience, I felt such overwhelming relief at the understanding that the PT had that I could not help but cry. This was the beginning of my 11 month journey at PPHC. I followed a treatment plan of breathing exercises, relaxation techniques and practiced dilation at home as well as during my sessions and learned that I could re-wire by brain and thereby my body’s response. I saw gradual but definite improvement that I would have never imagined before. I had given up, and with every bit of progress I regained my self-esteem and hope that I too could lead a ‘normal’ adult life. I also learned that I was not alone in this. Vaginismus is unfortunately a condition that many of us suffer in silence. My only regret is not having sought the support of PPHC sooner. I cannot recommend PPHC enough to anyone who is suffering from vaginismus – you too can overcome it!

Just have to give praise to the pelvic physio gods at Proactive Pelvic Health Centre! For the first time in a year since giving birth I can enjoy sexy-time again! After 6 weeks of pelvic physio I have ZERO pain. Sorry if its TMI but someone reading this is probably suffering and I hope my experience might help someone regain confidence and pleasure.
