A massage with Samantha can be described as a rehabilitative, eclectic approach to improve body awareness and function. Sessions will typically include stretching, pressure/trigger points, invigorating circulatory work, and deeper myofascial work along tense muscle groups. The goal of her sessions is to improve range of motion and decrease inhibitive muscular holding patterns to help your body reach a healthier, more balanced state.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Brittni on Oct 08
Very unique and effective techniques, really knows her anatomy and creates a relaxing and therapeutic atmosphere. Walked away feeling like jello with muscles released that I didn’t even realize I was holding.

Samantha is very skilled and professional.

Samantha does an impressive deep tissue massage, and has the expertise to know just where to apply pressure to relieve the serious tightness I am experiencing. I travel quite a distance to get these massages as I have not found anyone else who is as good.

Samantha is very nice and professional.

So helped my issues and am looking forward to my next session. My only critique is I usually get a glass of water immediately after to begin flushing all the junk out. But I live close by so it's not really an issue :)

Samantha has created a wonderful space and I always look forward putting myself in her excellent and professional care. She's skilled at addressing specific problem areas when I have them and intuitive about where to spend time and attention when I don't. Certainly, seeing Sam once a month seems to have kept most of my formerly chronic aches and pains at bay!

I didn't know what I was missing until I had several sessions. Many of my longstanding quirks are being resolved and I am much more aware of my posture.

I always love going to see Sam for a massage! It can be a bit painful at time but it is well worth it after. My body has felt much better since I have started going to see Sam. Particularly my shoulders and my knee.
