Erin Marshall, RMT
Erin Marshall was born and raised north of Clinton, Ontario. After completing high school at Central Huron Secondary School, she moved on to a career in law and security, which took her all around the province. But something was always tugging at her to move to a career in health care and follow her passion for helping others.
In 2012, Erin attended the D’Arcy Lane Institute of Massage Therapy. She graduated in 2013, and was awarded the Clinical Award of Excellence for her class. She went on to successfully complete the College of Massage Therapy of Ontario Board examinations. Erin currently practises from her home office north of Clinton and is excited to join the dynamic team of practitioners at the Clinton Chiropractic & Wellness Centre in January 2016.
Since she was a young child, Erin has been heavily involved in sports and with horses. For many years, she played and coached soccer in the Clinton and Goderich area, and then attended Conestoga College and competed in soccer at the college level. Throughout high school, she competed in basketball, hockey, volleyball and curling. She also showed American Saddlebreds when she was young. That sports-based foundation and passion have instilled in her a greater understanding and awareness of sports-related injuries and pathologies pertaining to sports.
Erin’s philosophy is that the human body is a fascinating thing, and when injured, the body should be allowed to do what it does best – heal itself, and that sometimes all that needs to be done is to remove the barriers that are holding your body back. Whether those barriers are stress, repetitive strain, anxiety or injury, massage can help move the healing process forward.
Erin believes that with any injury or pathology, a team-based treatment approach is always best. She works very closely with the patient’s other health care providers and puts patient needs as her priority when treating. She feels that by complementing massage with other treatments, such as chiropractic care and physiotherapy, great results can be achieved. Therefore, Erin focuses her patient-centred treatments on each individual’s need and concern. Treatment can focus around rehabilitation and therapeutic needs, as well as relaxation. Erin is very comfortable treating many conditions and pathologies, including patients suffering from any of the following:
- Low Back Pain/Sciatica
- Migraines/Chronic and Tension Headaches
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Frozen Shoulder and Rotator Cuff Injuries
- Degenerative Disc Disease (DDD)
Erin Also Offers:
- Pregnancy Massage
- Infant and Child Massage
Erin has also focused on treatment of and seen great success with patients who have specific disabilities, as well as patients who have difficulty communicating with their health care providers. Erin is available for house calls, should the patient not be able to visit the clinic.
