Safa Rahman, BScPT, CPMA, has been a Pelvic Health Physiotherapist and dedicated yoga practitioner for over 25 years. Much of her experience is in orthopedics (complex spinal injuries, head/face/TMJ pain, lumbo-pelvic and hip pain), though for the last 15 years she has been focused mainly on pelvic health and chronic pain for all genders. Her practice is nurtured by external and internal examinations as necessary. She currently works closely with urologists, and practitioners at the Prostate Cancer Centre, as well as the transgender community and service providers, and she has a wonderful working relationship with pain specialists across disciplines in Calgary.
Safa takes the utmost care to ensure an environment that is trauma-informed, culturally sensitive and non-violent, and she incorporates her Certification in Medical Acupuncture, physiotherapy evidence-based practice, fascial awareness, meditation, breathwork, yoga therapy and pain science into her treatment options. She has had the privilege of working as the primary physiotherapist within an interdisciplinary care team on the Pelvic Pain team at the AHS Chronic Pain Center from 2006 to 2017. Safa has also completed the 500-hour Yoga Teacher Training program with the Myofascial Yoga Institute, and is a strong believer in the healing properties of sunshine, nature, children and community.
