Marina Santagati

Exercise Specialist 

Apollo South

 What I do around here:

I am here to help with prescribed exercises as well as motivate people to perform at their best, and work towards their goals. I’m also here to assist with modalities such as TENS, STIM, IFC, ultrasound, taping, and heat.

I became a Physiotherapist because:

I love helping people, that’s why healthcare was always the direction I wanted to go. I played a lot of sports growing up and have become passionate about physical fitness. I have felt the amazing benefits of exercise and would love to pass that on to others. My education in Neuroscience combined with Kinesiology has prepared me well for my career with Apollo PTC!

My personal philosophy is:

Exercise is medicine.

What I do for fun:

I am always eager to spend my spare time outside (in the summer).  I love going for long bike rides and hikes. I am also a huge fan of picnics and spending time at the beach.

What I do around here:

I prescribe, progress, and regress exercise programs as well as teach correct movement techniques to help others recover, stay mobile, and injury free. I also apply treatment modalities such as thermotherapy, cryotherapy, TENS, STIM, IFC, ultrasound, and taping.

I became an Exercise Specialist because:

I am passionate about interacting and learning from others, and love being able to see people reach their full potential and live with good quality of life through exercise and physical activity!

My personal philosophy is:

Get to know the person, not just the patient.

What I do for fun:

I enjoy activities that allow me to spend time with my wife and two daughters.  Riding on the bike trails of Ottawa, playing golf, hockey and soccer are just a few of the things that keep me active.  As well, spending a few days at the gym working on strength and aerobic conditioning allow me to stay fit and keep pace with my active children.  With very little down time, I occasionally like to spend a quiet night at home watching a movie or playing the Wii.
