Paige Vivian is a physical therapist in Seattle. She earned her doctorate in physical therapy from the University of Washington in 2012, and completed her post-doctoral residency and fellowship in manual therapy through the Ola Grimsby Institute. She began studying pelvic floor rehab when she realized no one in her clinic could provide that treatment to the patients seeking it out. Over the past two years, she has gained an appreciation for how pelvic floor health can affect many other aspects of a person’s life.

She is passionate about teaching, and strives to encourage people from all abilities and expressions to live and move optimally.
