Robyn Murray Reg. PT & Founder
BHK, MSc. Kin, MSc. PT
Greetings! Here’s my bio to learn a little bit more about me.
I received my MSc. Physiotherapy from McMaster University and started my career in outpatient orthopedics. I quickly fell in love with pelvic rehabilitation started my specialty training while pregnant with my first daughter.
I am a strong believer of compassionate client centered care and working with my clients in a way that resonates with you and your life. I have a specific passion in birth preparation & post partum rehab, as well as sexual health & guiding those experiencing persistent pain conditions. I am also passionate about working with those that are survivors of birth trauma and sexual abuse/assault as a trauma trained physiotherapist.
Prior to pursuing physiotherapy, I received a MSc. Kinesiology from Wilfrid Laurier University and a BHK. Honours from University of Windsor (my hometown!). I also worked as a personal trainer and fitness instructor from 2007 until I started practicing physiotherapy in 2015.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, hiking, biking, sailing, cross-fit, yoga, meditation and reading.

Shannon Clutton Carr Reg. PT
Hons.B.Kin, MPT, CGIMS, Pilates Instructor
Shannon has been serving her community as a physiotherapist for nearly 15 years. Her interest and transition into pelvic health began with the traumatic birth of her son and the harsh realization that no body bounces back, but it can be gently guided towards a new state and full recovery built on a foundation of strength, power, pleasure, and autonomy.
She has a clinical focus on peri-natal and peri-menopausal health. Her specific clinical interests include chronic low back or hip pain, dyspareunia/painful penetration, pelvic organ prolapse, urinary and fecal incontinence, bladder or bowel urgency, pregnancy-related pain conditions, labour and birth preparation, and post-partum recovery and conditioning.
Shannon is passionate about the biopsychosocial aspects of pelvic health and building a healthcare community of wholehearted support and integrity. She firmly believes in honouring matrescence and all it has to offer. She uses education and movement to empower and inspire other mothers to connect to themselves and create a healthy body and mind, even while in the throes of major life transition.
Shannon has successfully built and grown a clinical Pilates program that incorporates full body strengthening, postural control, breath work, and lumbopelvic/core strengthening that pairs beautifully with pelvic floor rehabilitation. She is STOTT Pilates mat and reformer trained since 2011 and continues to teach regularly in the community.
Shannon recently added the assessment and treatment of infant feeding-related concerns to her repertoire of care. She works with parents to assess and treat common musculoskeletal issues associated with tongue/lip tie, poor latching, mastitis, torticollis, and more.
Shannon has spent many years learning about trauma recovery and navigating life after pregnancy loss at any stage. As a bereaved mother who has also experienced pregnancy after loss herself, she creates a safe space for bereaved mothers to experience trauma-informed pelvic health care. She continues to develop her physiotherapy practice through a trauma-informed lens and enjoys collaborating with a network of empathetic practitioners to help bereaved parents in need of whole body care.
Shannon grew up dancing ballet in Guelph. Her physical activity is now centered on fitting in Peloton workouts when she can while juggling a busy lifestyle with her young family. She loves reading, movies, good coffee, and baking.

Lucy D’Aguilar PTA
BAPE, Pre/Postnatal Exercise Specialist
Early on in life I found a passion for sport, health and fitness. My father was a marathon runner, Physical Education teacher and an all-round sport enthusiast it was hard not to get involved at an early age. Growing up I was never a confident child and I struggled with confidence my whole life. The only place I truly felt myself was when I was doing gymnastics or running the track, focusing on the next competition. I climbed the competitive ladder, unfortunately injury struck AGAIN and AGAIN and I was unable to keep on top. This however, did not dampen my passion for fitness and health.
I graduated from the University of Liverpool John Moore’s (England) with a Bachelor degree in Sports Development with Physical Education. After graduating I decided to take a year off school and traveled the world where I met my husband Brandon, who brought me to where I live now, Canada.
In 2010 I became certified through CanFitPro and worked in a ladies only gym as a personal trainer. I met a multitude of wonderful women and helped change many lives along the way. Coaching women through pregnancy and post pregnancy goals was what I LOVED! But I quickly discovered there was a huge lack in education throughout the fitness industry for pregnancy and post partum training.
In 2013 I became pregnant with my beautiful Daughter Eden. Which all lead to me educating myself more in how I could help YOU recover from your birth and pregnancy.

Registered Physiotherapist, MScPT, BSc (hons)
I received my M.Sc in Physiotherapy from the University of Toronto in 2010. Early on in my career, I was lucky enough to experience a variety of different work environments, including orthopaedics, paediatrics, geriatrics and home based care. I first became interested in pelvic floor Physiotherapy after experiencing my own pelvic floor challenges following the birth of my first child in 2015.
Experiencing the positive impact of pelvic floor rehab first hand, made me want to be able to help other people in my community who might also be struggling with their pelvic health. Since then, I have extended my training to allow me to work with children with bowel and bladder challenges (including bed wetting, encopresis and more) and breast/chest feeding families struggling with blocked ducts, mastitis and latch struggles (secondary to tongue tie etc). This has allowed me to combine my love for pelvic floor rehab with my love of working with children! I strive to provide inclusive, compassionate and client centered care, as well as practicing through a Health at Every Size (HAES) lens.
Outside of my practice, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two young children, being in nature, crocheting, sewing (or any kind of craft, really!) and practicing yoga and meditation.
