The Physiotiques team is made up of expert leaders in the pelvic health field who take a unique, collaborative approach to treatment and managing issues related to your pelvic and core areas. We know this can be a sensitive subject and one that has many myths and misconceptions but our team is here to help you.

Our certified pelvic health physiotherapists have extensive specialized training in this area of care, including issues like pelvic pain, traumatic births, abdominal separation, and sexual concerns. When you receive treatment from our team,  you can be assured you are in good hands. Our physiotherapists are professionals with a personal touch, you will receive confidential treatment in a supportive environment.

Physiotiques was formed because of Cheryl’s strong belief that in order to treat and empower someone you need to get to know the whole person – not just a set of muscles and bones. The Physiotiques team does exactly this, they see, listen to and help the whole person.

Monique Zizzy, Registered Nutritionist (RHN)

 
After graduating with a degree in Marketing and Health Promotion, I began a rewarding and successful 10-year career in marketing and communications in both the corporate and not for profit sector.
Interested in pursuing nutrition to compliment my marketing and health promotion background I graduated from the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition as a Registered Holistic Nutrition (RHN). I have been fortunate to have worked closely with Physicians and different health professionals in clinical settings for man years. Currently, I combine my marketing and communications experience and nutrition to make big changes in both individual clients lives and whole organizations health strategies.
For me, nutrition fits into every aspect of our day and lives. As a mother of two young girls and wife to a busy husband, I am passionate about children and women’s health.
My idea of a perfect day is spending it being active with a run or swim in the summer or a great day skiing in the winter. Passionate about food from different cultures my day is most certainly followed by a delicious meal I cook up in my kitchen for my family and friends or trying out a new unique restaurant.
