Emma Ballantyne

Senior Physiotherapist & Pilates Clinician

Bachelor of Physiotherapy – University of Technology & Masters of Physiotherapy (MPthy) – University of Sydney.

Like most physios, Emma has grown up playing a variety of sports and has been a water and snow skier from a very young age.  She has also had her fair share of injuries thanks to gymnastics and netball, which is possibly where the idea to become a physio grew from.   Nowadays, Emma leans towards less competitive activities such as yoga, pilates, surfing and running at Mona Vale or Collaroy beach in order to stay in fighting fit condition for her patients. 

Emma’s personal interests lie in helping people understand how to move their body efficiently and to prevent and overcome pain and movement dysfunctions.  She applies a hands on, holistic approach to her patients and is trained in dry needling, as well as occasionally drawing from alternative medicine practices (eg Chinese cupping) to assist with treatment. She incorporates her expertise in human movement into Pilates-based programs, utilising mat and reformer styles, often to introduce her patients to muscles and movement they weren’t previously acquainted with!  

Emma has also received training in cranio-sacral therapy, a very gentle but effective treatment for a wide variety of conditions such as pain, fibromyalgia, concussion and headaches.
