Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Great Therapeutic Massage, wonderful experience really helped heal my lower back pain.

    Samantha Rose is the only massage therapist in town that can really address my sciatic problem. Her hands are amazing.

  • Samantha is wonderful. I have seen her for about 2 years now. When she opened her new place, I didn't see her for about 4 months because I needed to finish off some credits I had at other places. My body really missed her. My IT bands were trashed from my regular running (I had no idea she was keeping that in check for me!). I'm soo happy to be back with her and am looking forward to being able to increase my running distances again now that she and I are working together again.

    I could never give Samantha anything less than top ratings. Go see her if you haven't and those that have already seen her probably have their next appointment booked already. I've been seeing Samantha since around June of 2013 going on 4 years. Samantha assisting in my path to wellness has been a tremendous blessing.

  • Beautiful establishment and a world-class massage. Fantastic experience!

    Everything is awsume!

  • Wonderful professional massage attuned to my needs! I always feel so much better after her massages.

    Love her!!! Sam always takes the time to ask about problem areas and focuses each session on addressing those issues. I always walk away feeling better than when I arrived.

  • She'd the best. She has a vast knowledge of anatomy and has helped me over come many issues.

    I liked that Samantha let me know that she does hard pressure beforehand so I was able to tell her not to if need be and then asked if the pressure was okay during (which it was--it was perfect!) Overall, it was amazing!

I have had hundreds of massages before however, none are as good as the ones Samantha gives. You feel relief from sore muscles and relaxed at the same time. She has techniques that are unique, super strong hands, and great "lines" that work the entire muscle from start to finish.

Samantha is thorough, intuitive and thoughtful. Her therapy is effective in treating my sports injuries and in preventative care. I have been seeing her for two plus years now and recommend her continually to family, friends and colleagues.

Magical healing hands! I asked Sammi for 1/2 healing touch (AKA deep tissue massage to rework/loosen up my tight muscles) and 1/2 relaxing/therapeutic. She delivered exactly that!

Sam knows how to go beyond a "feel good" massage and how to work on the issues I am having with tight hip flexors and shoulder problems - and it works.

Samantha is very skillful as a massage therapist. I have been seeing her for several years to help with low back pain, and she is excellent when it comes to working not only on what I perceive as the "problem area" but also on all the areas of my body that are connected and need attention as well. I appreciate how she is able to do deep tissue work and be sensitive with a lighter touch when needed. Now that I am pregnant I am seeing Samantha for pre-natal massages which are absolutely wonderful!

She's one of those therapists that dynamically adjusts according to different circumstances. Seems to really know where to find the knots, how much -- or little -- pressure to apply, etc. Not someone who simply follows a prescribed set of instructions on what to work on.

I have to say that Samantha's instincts with regard to deep tissue and muscle release techniques are the best I have ever encountered and I'm a certified massage therapist. I can trust her completely to go as deep as possible with out going too far. She seems to have unfailing instincts and amazing control. I have just had 5 sessions with and will be signing up for another group. The truth is that at least six times a session the thought comes though my mind this is the best thing that ever happened to me!! I'm not joking I've a lot of stress and tension in the last few years and Samatha's work is beyond wonderful.

Samantha puts all of her energy into the specific injured area and has an abundance of knowledge regarding the makeup of the human body. I'm amazed by how she knows the correlation of all the muscles and their specific functions. Highly recommended.
