"From science to experience, we are
healing from WITHIN."

My name is Samara Nanayakkara, aka the Lady Parts Physio.  I'm the Pelvic Floor & Maternal Health Physio at Waverley Private Hospital, & the founder of Woman Within Physiotherapy.  My calling to help people through the most intimate times of their lives sprung from my own secret & lonely struggle with pelvic pain, pre – menstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD) & hormone imbalances.

“I wish someone had told me about this.”

Years of my own experiences, research & numerous consultations with specialists have amounted to my holistic treatment programs today.  People of all ages & backgrounds would tell me the difficulties faced through their entry into menarche, sexual relationships, birthing journey, or the transition to menopause. Not knowing what treatment options were available, let alone who to ask, they too, suffered in silence.

My online video & in - person consultations have helped people regain  bladder & bowel control, strengthen their pelvic floors, reduce pain with intercourse & increase the enjoyment of intimacy after childbirth.
