2020 Peter Martin Award of Excellence Winner
Awarded by the Massage Therapy Association of Alberta
Sheena Taggart hails from Lloydminster (the Saskatchewan side) and moved to Calgary to pursue post-secondary education and start a family. Like most people, her initial career left some things to be desired, which initiated a search for something that would align with her values. After resolving some intense health-related challenges, it seemed obvious to pursue Massage Therapy.
Alongside her training, Sheena has a mission to educate the public. This has made her a frequent author of articles in the local newsletter, some of which are:
"Hyperkyphosis and how it affects our body",
"Fascia- The missing body maintenance link",
"Does your massage therapist treat antagonist muscles?",
"Posture and Jaw Issues (TMJ Dysfunction)",
"The Disease of Disconnection"
As a lifelong learner, Sheena continues to work on her education and health through "Anatomy Trains" by Tom Myers, the Wim Hof's breathing method, BodyMind coaching and has plans to take John F. Barnes's Myofascial courses. Sheena now resides in Bragg Creek and is a graduate of MH Vicars School of Massage Therapy (2020).
