Credentials

  • Bachelor of Science in Human Kinetics
  • Masters of Physical Therapy
  • Certified Gunn Intramuscular Stimulation

Erin completed her Bachelor of Science in Human Kinetics from the University of Guelph before moving on to her Masters of Physical Therapy from the University of Western Ontario. While at Western, Erin developed a keen interest in supporting both the physical and mental outlook of her clients across different fields, including rehabilitation from spinal cord injury, orthopaedics, acute care in the ICU and working with children with various developmental and physical disabilities.

Following graduation, Erin has continued to develop her skills in various aspects of physiotherapy. She has completed levels 1-3 of the CPA Orthopaedic Division program, along with many other manual therapy courses to support her hands-on approach to treatment. Erin has also completed several non-internal pelvic floor courses and plans to complete future training in the complex relationship between the pelvis and thorax. She is particularly interested in assessing and treating the body as whole, and recognizing movement patterns or restrictions which may be contributing to longer term issues.

Erin has completed training in acupuncture from the Acupuncture Foundation of Canada Institute and more recently has become a certified Gunn Intramuscular Stimulation (GIMS) practitioner through the University of British Columbia. This certification allows her to use a dry needling technique to release persistent tension and compression symptoms, which can help with proper muscle activation and control.

Over her 10 years of experience in the Guelph area, Erin’s practice has evolved to include more of a mind body approach to physical rehabilitation. As somebody who knows first hand the difficulties that come with being neurodivergent, she works hard to encourage clients to find balance between their work, home and family life, to support them with stress management techniques, and perhaps most importantly, to provide a safe and compassionate space in all physiotherapy sessions.

Outside of work, Erin can usually be found playing with her two young kids, husband and dog.
