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.

Samantha and her deep tissue massage has helped me regain a much more active life. She literally changed my life by working out the large knots in my leg that would spasm with pretty much any exercise at all. Now I can walk on the beach and do mild exercise without my leg muscles going in to spasm. THANKS SAMANTHA!!!

I have been going to Samantha for about a year now and every time I leave feeling so much more relaxed and loose. I broke my collar bone in a horseback riding accident, have tendinitis and plantar fasciitis in both of my feet, and carry all of my tension in my neck and shoulders. During each session Samantha makes sure to focus on my problem areas, uses the right amount of force, and is incredibly responsive to any of my requests. Highly recommend!!

Not my usual full body. Concentrated on circulation in extremities and added some crainosacral for some core release. Massage was amazing, I can't wait to return!

This is the second time I've seen Sam and both have been incredible experiences. Sam took notice of an existing knee condition and really helped to relieve the tension that gets built up over time. An incredible experience and would absolutely book again.

She was amazing! I came in for a pulled muscle and she lessened the pain significantly. She was thoughtful and detailed in her approach. Samantha clearly has lots of experience and has a good knowledge of anatomy. I would highly recommend her.
