About Us

Sorella (translates to Sister in Italian) is a community of like-minded health and wellness professionals with a unique focus on a woman's journey through life. We started with a foundation of Pelvic Health Physiotherapy, but understood this was always meant to be a community approach to care. We quickly joined with allies and new team members who were just as excited as we were to have a supportive space for women's wellness. It is by working together with other talented professionals in complimentary disciplines that we can offer our clients the best chance of success.

We are Physiotherapy, Chiropractic, Yoga, Acupuncture and Massage Therapy. Our experts are passionate about finding holistic and effective ways to treat difficult medical conditions along with connecting our patients to a higher level of overall wellness.

Meet your Sorella experts below!
