Love & Guts

Jan 19, 2020

#136 Alyssa Tait is both a physiotherapist and a nutritionist. After doing postgraduate studies in pelvic floor as a physiotherapist, she returned to university with the drive to get even better and faster results for her patients by incorporating nutrition. Two nutrition/naturopathy qualifications later, she is still incorporating more tools to help her patients, taking on a Master of Science in Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine.

Alyssa has a bee in her bonnet about painful sex, leaky bladder, irritable bowel, chronic/recurrent urinary tract infections, all manner of horrible types of pelvic pain, and annoying itchy vaginal discharge issues, and has made it her mission to help as many as people rid themselves of these problems.

Believing that the world of orthodox medicine and natural therapies are complementary, Alyssa Tait founded Equilibria Physiotherapy & Nutrition, which uniquely bridges the gap between the two worlds. 

Intrigued by the world of women’s hormones and fertility, Alyssa Tait is is also an Accredited Teacher of the Billings Ovulation Method.
