Erin Martyn - Physiotherapist
Erin completed her Bachelor of Science in Human Kinetics from the
University of Guelph in 2007 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 continue further training in the complex relationship between the pelvis and thorax. She is particularly interested in assessing and treating the body as a 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 neuropathic tissue tension and joint compression, leading to proper muscle activation and control. She plans to continue further training in acupuncture to include electroacupuncture.
Over her 11 years of experience in the Guelph and Centre Wellington areas, 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. She finds peace being out in nature, in a forest or by the lake. She enjoys making crochet blankets, journaling and painting.
