Taylor Barnett is a Registered Massage Therapist at Evergreen Rehab & Wellness Coquitlam. Taylor completed her massage therapy education at West Coast College of Massage Therapy in New Westminster in August 2022.
With many opportunities to practice different forms of manual therapy, Taylor has been trained in General Swedish Massage (GSM) as well as other modalities such as muscle stripping, fascial release techniques, trigger point release, PNF stretching, hydrotherapy, and homecare recommendations.
Her style of therapeutic massage involves mostly GSM, and diaphragmatic breathing techniques to effectively release tissue tension and muscle soreness. She prefers to perform her modalities with smooth fluid movements that replicate the feeling of a relaxing spa treatment. Prior to her massage therapy education, she earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology at San Jose State University in California.
During her four years at University, she trained and competed for the school’s Division 1 NCAA Gymnastics team. Her experience in injury prevention and rehabilitation motivated her to pursue a career in healthcare so that she can help her patients recover safely.
Her goal is to help her patients improve their quality of life, by providing safe and effective manual therapy in a positive and supportive environment. Some of her hobbies include quiet walks through the forest parks near her home, skiing through the trees up on the mountains of Vancouver, and taking pictures of her cat Memphis in funny costumes.
