Stephanie Higgins

Empowering Movement, Enhancing Lives

Registered Physiotherapist
Pelvic Floor Physiotherapist

Steph grew up in Kitchener with a passion for helping others. After spending a significant amount of time in and out of physiotherapy clinics as an active child, she decided on a career in physiotherapy. Steph graduated with a Master of Physical Therapy from the University of Western Ontario in 2009. Prior to this, she completed a four-year Honours Specialization in Health Science with Biology, also at the University of Western Ontario, in 2007. Since completing her master’s degree, Steph has continued to advance her postgraduate education with a strong interest in manual therapy, sports physiotherapy, pre- and post-natal care, and acupuncture. She has years of experience assisting individuals of all ages, including children, elite athletes, and new mothers, in preventing and recovering from injuries.

Since becoming a mother, Steph has taken pride in aiding moms-to-be and new mothers in achieving their physiotherapy goals. These goals may include staying active during pregnancy, preparing for delivery, and managing postpartum issues that may arise. Pregnancy and postpartum periods can be among the most challenging times for some women, and Steph’s aim is to help make these times as smooth as possible.

Steph has always had a passion for sports and physical activity. She has participated in many competitive sports throughout her life and continues to promote the importance of health and physical fitness. She is also a national-level Ultimate (Frisbee) player. For over 10 years, she has been a loyal attendee at the Elite Training Facility, participating in our Better Body Exchange group exercise classes and taking only short breaks to have babies (who are now regulars and can often be found hanging out during workouts). Although Steph is a recent addition to our Elite team, she has been a part of our Elite family for over a decade.

In her spare time, she enjoys crafting, traveling, and exploring the culinary world with her husband and their three little Higlets.
