Taryn is a RMT Remedial Massage Therapist and Certified Pilates Instructor. She graduated from the Canadian College of Massage and Hydrotherapy in Toronto, Canada in 2011 and became registered with the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario (CMTO) shortly after.

In 2013, she achieved her certification as a Pilates Instructor from the world renowned Body Harmonics as a compliment to massage therapy.

Before moving to Edinburgh, she acquired ample experience in hospital, clinic, sport and corporate settings, with a focus on pain relief, correcting postural dysfunction, injury rehabilitation, stress management and maintenance of good health.

Taryn’s mission is to determine a treatment plan unique to each individual’s needs. She achieves this with a wide variety of techniques such as Swedish massage, passive & proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF) stretching, trigger point therapy, joint mobilization, myofascial release, manual lymph drainage, deep tissue massage, hydrotherapy and remedial exercises, in which she integrates stretching, muscle conditioning and Pilates techniques.

Prior to becoming a massage therapist, Taryn was a competitive figure skater and trained actor. No stranger to injury and stress, she discovered how beneficial massage therapy is to encouraging the body’s natural healing mechanisms and to calming and clearing the mind. She believes whether your treatment goals are centred toward the body or the mind, everyone benefits from massage.


Hi Andrea.

I had probably the best ever massage by your colleague today Taryn. She knows her stuff and it was lovely to meet her. I feel really relaxed and she also managed to work on a spot my physio missed yesterday. I'll be running here next year so count me in again!!

Thank you so much for organising this so far out from race day. If Taryn is there this time next year I'll be sure to re-book. Thanks, and please pass the compliment on if you want to as she is a real credit to Revitalize.
