Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • She is patient and takes the time to understand what my body needs then does something amazing to make all the tension and stress melt away!

    I feel better with body treatments by Samantha!!

  • Great massage!

    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.

    Fantastically

  • Samantha really understands anatomy and usually knows how to relieve pain. Samantha is very easy to work with and helps you feel comfortable.

    Samantha is excellent massage therapist with the highest degree of kindness ,courtesy, skill and over all excellence.

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.

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.

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.
