Your Presenter

Natalie Morris, PT

Natalie graduated from the University of Ottawa in 2007 and began working in oncology and lymphedema management in 2013. There, she discovered her passion for helping men and women who are living with cancer manage side effects related to treatment. Natalie soon discovered that many of her clients were equally struggling with pelvic floor dysfunction and pursued additionally training to be able to better serve this population.

As a physiotherapist and yoga teacher, Natalie’s goal is to provide one on one physiotherapy services to clients in a supportive and compassionate setting. She believes that successful rehabilitation requires a thorough assessment, proper communication, engagement and thoughtful treatment planning. In order for optimal recovery to occur, the whole person and the whole body need to be taken into account.
