About me

No one understands a woman’s body better than a woman herself.

lyons3I have always been a firm believer in integrative healthcare. For over twenty five years, I have specialized in women’s health, with a distinct focus on helping other women live a healthy, happy life. My philosophy is based on my experience as a healthcare practitioner, my specialised background in orthopaedics &women’s health physiotherapy, integrative healthcare, and as a woman. To paraphrase Dr Christiane Northrup, I have spent a long time studying all the things that can go wrong with a women’s body, now I want to focus on what can help things go right.

I have over two decades of experience as a chartered physiotherapist. I am on the teaching & course development faculty of Herman & Wallace Pelvic Rehab Institute in the U.S. and I was an item writer for the PRPC certification exam.

I have also been a lecturer for the Pelvic Obstetric & Gynaecological Physiotherapy Association in the U.K. on their pregnancy/MSK courses and was Clinical Lead on their advanced pelvic floor course.

I blog and teach online for Medbridge Education and have collaborated with both the Integrative Pelvic Health Institute and Burrell Education on a number of live and online women’s health educational programmes.

I have a deep appreciation of integrative healthcare – using food, herbs, yoga, pilates and mind body techniques to help women transition to health. I have presented at the International Herbal Symposium, the New England Women’s Herbal Conference and the Wise Woman Weekend.

In 2013 I co-founded the Women’s Health Physiotherapy group, which now has over 5000 members from all over the world; an abstract looking at the role of the group/social media in promoting women’s health was accepted for WCPT in 2015. Recently, I founded a specialised group for clinicians, Global Pelvic Physio, which has over 1000 members

Although I joke that I live at the airport, I divide my time between the US and Ireland. With a busy international and online schedule, I also find time to indulge my passion for cooking, reading, shopping for more books and reading some more!

As well as offering private consultations, I also offer independent courses/presentations for both healthcare professionals and communities on all aspects of female and male pelvic health (bladder, bowel, sexual health, pelvic pain), pelvic health for athletes, pregnancy & post partum, and oncology rehab (CLICK UPCOMING EVENTS), as well as a consulting/ mentoring service to clinics internationally who wish to start or grow their pelvic rehab, women’s health or oncology rehab programmes.
