About Equilibria

Passionate about women’s health.

Alyssa Tait is passionate about helping women achieve optimal health.

Due to her dual fields, you get two professional perspectives to your condition when you see her!

Alyssa Tait has postgraduate qualifications in pelvic floor dysfunction, and has a special interest in all types of chronic pelvic and abdominal pain. From the late 90s, Alyssa worked for many years in the public health system in women’s health. A little later, 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. Always fascinated by the world of nutrition, Alyssa completed qualifications in first nutrition medicine and then naturopathy. She is now completing her Masters in Nutrition and Functional Medicine.

Intrigued by the world of women’s hormones and fertility, Alyssa Tait is is also an Accredited Teacher of the Billings Ovulation Method. She continues to complete numerous courses every year to stay at the top of her field – both in physiotherapy and nutrition.

Believing that the world of orthodox medicine and natural therapies are complementary, Alyssa Tait founded Equilibria Physiotherapy & Nutrition, which uniquely bridges the gap between the two worlds. While working within a strong science-based framework, Alyssa brings the best of natural medicine into her treatment in order to get the best possible results for her clients.
