our mission

a place where women feel heard, feel cared for, and feel HOPE

Elle Physiotherapy and Pelvic Health was started in 2014 with a simple premise: To provide restorative evidence-based pelvic health treatment and resources for women in Central Alberta.  It is our goal to nurture and empower women in their understanding of their own bodies through intervention, education, exercise, and preventative health care. Our team believes that a collaborative, wholistic and client-centered approach is imperative. We work as a part of a multidisciplinary referral team to ensure that you receive the best treatment and opportunity for wellness.

The field of women's health is growing and new research is always emerging. Our staff regularly participates in continuing education and training in order to stay current on practice recommendations. 

We look forward to welcoming you into our cozy and peaceful space to take the first steps in reclaiming your health.
