Meet Our Team
Taylor McKechnie RMT
Taylor holds a Diploma in Registered Massage Therapy from the West Coast College of Massage Therapy in Victoria, BC and a Bachelor of Health Science Degree from Thompson Rivers University. She has been actively practicing massage therapy in her hometown of Squamish BC since 2009.
Taylor views massage therapy as an integral part of a patient’s overall emotional and physical health, and focuses on treatment plans and goals that are customized to fit each patient. She is deeply intrigued with the mind body connection and values each patient’s intuition when it comes to issues that bring them to the table. Taylor believes in not only providing relief from specific symptoms, but also determining the root of the problem to render long term resolutions. She has a special interest in the treatment of headaches, chronic pain and TMJD. However, regardless of the reason for your visit, she is invested in playing an active role on your wellness journey, incorporating modalities such as deep tissue massage, trigger point release, craniosacral therapy, muscle energy techniques and myofascial release.
Taylor has a thirst for personal growth and knowledge that inspires her to always show up for her patients with their best interests at heart.
Taylor loves being a mom to her two babes, exploring the world and her own backyard on foot, bike or paddle board, connecting with community, reading and practicing yoga.

Daniel Porcino RMT
Daniel brings an innovative approach to massage therapy, supporting clients with a passion for his work that enables them to reconnect with the activities they love. He brings to his clients a true zeal for addressing issues and conditions that have been resistant to previous treatments, a style that has brought many clients great relief and satisfaction. He focuses on getting to the root of the issue rather than solely dealing with the symptoms.
His treatment style is informed by his ongoing studies with the Canadian School of Osteopathy, providing him with a continually refreshed and updated “tool kit” as he learns new techniques.
Daniel may incorporate a variety of techniques into a treatment such as swedish massage, muscle energy, craniosacral therapy, visceral manipulation, myofascial release, and joint play.
Daniel became a registered massage therapist after working for more than a decade as a carpenter in Vancouver. He was inspired to make this career change after becoming fascinated by fascial systems and anatomy, and experiencing first hand the physical changes that can be made by a dedicated therapist. He is a graduate of the 3000 hr program from the Okanagan Valley College of Massage Therapy.
In his free time Daniel enjoys hiking with his girlfriend, mountain biking, climbing, fishing, drawing and playing music.
