• Marcela Marinho Vilela, PT

    Marcela is an internationally educated physiotherapist originally from Brazil where she worked as a physiotherapist before moving to Canada. Since arriving in Canada, she has gained additional experience working in clinical settings for more than four years.

    She is trained in several different manual therapy, exercise, and modality-based treatment approaches. She was previously also a certified Pilates instructor.

    Marcela believes that the most important aspect of rehabilitation is clear communication between a patient and their physiotherapist. Another key is in creating appropriate treatment plans that best address the patient’s needs and preferences.

    Marcela has found her career as a physiotherapist to be extremely rewarding. She is passionate about making an impact on a person’s overall health, happiness and ability to live their life to the fullest.

    She loves the variety of people that come into the clinic and enjoys working with people of all ages. Marcela provides treatment to people with a wide range of injuries. She is thrilled to be at Coast Therapy and looks forward to helping you reach your health goals.
