Hello

I am Dr. Sasha Speer, DPT and the founder of Auria Pelvic Health. I've been a physical therapist for over 15 years, specializing in women's health and orthopedics. My approach is integrative, focusing on the whole person - body, mind, and soul.

Having also been a patient in our medical system, I felt the lack of time and access to whole body care - let alone finding someone to even listen to what you’re going through.

 

I created Auria to help change that. We take the time to listen to you, to perform a comprehensive evaluation of your whole body, and design a treatment plan that can help you heal from the root of the injury or dysfunction. Our goal is to help you get back to being a whole, healthy, happy you!

When I am not helping women improve their mobility and quality of life, I swim in the ocean, hike in the mountains and enjoy time with my friends and family.

My Story

When I completed my graduate training I thought I had all the tools I needed to treat people, until my own body "broke" after my dad passed away and my mom got sick. I had agonizing pain from my neck down my whole back, unable to turn my head. I tried everything in my toolbox and nothing was working. The medical doctors wanted to send me in for surgery and put me on pain meds. I knew there had to be a better way. 

I started reading everything I could and taking courses. One day, a breathing exercise recommended by a renowned integrative physician worked. And with that, I had hope. My research continued and I found numerous ways to find lasting relief. I was able to heal myself naturally and able to use the knowledge I gained with my patients. The experience gave me a whole extra layer to my toolbox.

Fast forward a decade and I was diagnosed with endometriosis that required a C-section to remove a large cyst. My recovery was so much harder than I anticipated. My body and mind shut down. I had been a women's health practitioner for years, but this experience really highlighted the need for the specialty. After healing I decided to focus entirely on women, including the pelvic floor. Without it we are not whole.

I am excited to bring you my knowledge through Auria Pelvic Health so that I can help you get free from pain and discomfort and get back to a happy, healthy life!

Dr. Sasha

"I came to Auria pelvic healthy early in my pregnancy because I was having a lot of pelvic pain and pressure. Sasha took the time to educate me on my body and how it was working mechanically, spent time teaching me proper stretches and movements all while feeling safe to ask any questions I needed. She is very attune to each individual and really takes the time and care to make sure you feel supported and empowered to take care of your body. I highly recommend Auria Pelvic Health for any woman seeking to learn more about her body and how to best support it. Sasha is a highly trained doctor, which is a breath of fresh air after all the physical therapists I have been to in the past who seem to be guessing rather than truly understanding the complexity of pelvic health in women. Thank you Sasha!.”
