Apollo South

Qualifications

Registered Massage Therapist (2006)

Continuing Education:
Soft Tissue Release (level 1 & 2) (2016)

What I do around here:

I like to help people through massage and positive energy. I’m a team player, and a spirit leader. Need a good laugh or a genuine smile? Come and find me – I’m here to help.

I became a Registered Massage Therapist because:

I like to help people heal. I thrive at the chance to solve puzzles. The body and its sustained traumas are my puzzles.  I have also experienced multiple car accidents as a child and enough falls, breaks, bumps and bruises to get a good sense of the rehabilitation process and the need for continued awareness of one’s own wellness.

My personal philosophy is:

We all have our vices! Taking responsibility for those vices and trying to amend them takes a lot of effort. Motivation to exercise or to make health conscious choices isn’t always easy. Most often we need to create that motivation by starting that which we put off. Those actions with or without the initial motivation are rewarding. More often than not, it is the reward that keeps that motivation going.

What I do for fun:

I love spending time with my family. Skiing, cycling, running, and walking are my favorite methods of exercise. I like to cook, sing, read, and round my day off with a good dose of sci-fi.

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.
