Tanya is a McMaster University Honours Kinesiology graduate. She completed her Master’s degree in physiotherapy at the University of Toronto. Tanya’s assessment and treatment approach is rooted deeply in the field on manual therapy. She believes in the value of a thorough biomechanical assessment to identify the cause behind the symptoms. As a part of her post-graduate studies, Tanya completed her Intermediate level training in Manual and Manipulative Physiotherapy. She has great success treating various orthopedic conditions of both traumatic and overuse nature. Her special interest lies in dance rehabilitation. After dancing for 24 years and still continuing, Tanya has an insider’s perspective to dancers’ needs. Combining that insight with her knowledge of biomechanics and rehabilitation techniques is a powerful tool to use to help dancers on their way to a pain-free future.

Tanya completed additional training in order to treat female and male pelvic floor problems. This is another area of Tanya’s interest and she is excited to treat potential patients that are suffering from a variety of pelvic floor and incontinence/bladder issues and patients with chronic low back, pelvic or hip pain. Tanya is also interested in educating and treating women during pregnancy and post-partum to help with diastasis rectus, weak core and pregnancy/birth associated discomfort and pain. In her free time Tanya likes to take ballet classes, spend time with her family, travel and enjoy outdoor activities.
