Alyssa Tait is passionate about helping women achieve optimal health. She has undergone specialised postgraduate training in pelvic floor dysfunction, and has a special interest in alll types of chronic pelvic pain.

Alyssa worked for many years in the public health system in the area of women's health. Around this time, she satisfied her ever-present bookish tendencies by working on a project team and co-authoring evidence-based guidelines for health professionals on how to manage incontinence.

She is also an Accredited Teacher of the Billings Ovulation Method, and continues to complete numerous courses every year to stay at the top of her field.
