Taylor Gaines

Interim Physiotherapist and Personal Trainer

Hello! My name is Taylor, and I am an enthusiastic Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist, and soon to-be Physiotherapist at Restore. You may also see me around the front desk too!

At The University of Vermont, I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Education whilst competing as a Division 1 NCAA athlete on UVM’s field hockey team. In following my passion of exercise and human kinetics, I acquired my Masters in Physiotherapy Studies at The University of Queensland, Australia.

Prior to joining the UVM field hockey team, I had the dilemma that perhaps you may also share– I hadn’t the slightest clue of how to lift, be effective in my training and let alone what the benefits of resistance training even entailed! In growing my developing dilemma, despite having the privilege to play field hockey, I spent much of my athletic career also nursing neverending injuries!

As a trainer and soon-to be clinician, I believe in the power of continuing to evolve, reflect and learn always to expand my skillset and become more refined and resourceful to clients. It is my goal to determine the root cause of an injury or pathology, use evidence-based tools and modalities to treat it, provide transparency and honesty through education, and empower clients to take an active role in their rehab. It is most important to me to also provide my clients with sincere care that develops a genuine rapport to allow them to feel understood, and with

the appropriate tools to help them achieve their goals, regain functional normalcy, overcome any complexities of their mental circumstances, and ultimately leave them better than I found them.

With that, I would love the opportunity to have the sincere pleasure of working with you to bridge the gap between where you are now and where you want to be

Providing healthcare that is simple, natural and effective.
