  Hannah Taylor PEMF Cadence Therapy Facebook:  Cadence Therapy  Website:  www.cadencetherapy.ca    Hannah Taylor is the owner and Authorized EquiPulse PEMF practitioner for Cadence Therapy. From an early age Hannah has owned and shown horses and has always known that combining her love for science and equines would become her lifelong career choice. After graduating in 2014 with a B.Sc. Honours in Animal Biology at the University of Guelph and then, discovering the benefits of PEMF therapy while in Wellington, Florida, Hannah knew she wanted to bring this alternative form of treatment back to Canada for others to experience. Acting as the first EquiPulse PEMF Practitioner in the country, Hannah now directly works with the parent company, Magnus Magnetica, as their go-to for training and sales of new devices and practitioners, all the while still travelling throughout Ontario servicing clientele. Hannah has always viewed our equine partners as true athletes, taking a whole horse-integrative approach. With new modalities and therapeutics constantly being added to her range of services, horses (and their humans!) will surely reap the benefits; in and out of the ring!  Meet Pip! Though she won't be joining Hannah on barn calls, you'll often see Miss Pippa the French Bulldog, during the summer season at horse shows closely following her 'mom'. Growing up surrounded by dogs, cats and horses, Pippa's sweet and clownish disposition endears her to all she meets and she's become the loving mascot of Cadence Therapy.
