Welcome to Sama सम
I use clinical massage and movement education to support the healing of chronic pain, injury, movement dysfunction, and stress. Sama is Sanskrit for balance. Isn't it about time we found yours?

At Sama, I offer a holistic approach to support your health and well-being. After a bike accident left me with chronic shoulder pain, I dedicated my life to studying the modalities that helped me heal; clinical massage, somatic movement, and meditation. After a decade of weeding out what works and what doesn't, I'm excited to share what I've learned with you.

Conditions I work with.
Conditions range from general muscle tightness, anxiety, hypertension, or chronic pain. These have included whiplash injuries, rotator cuff injuries, chronic pain conditions, carpal tunnel syndrome, piriformis syndrome, trigger points, knots, headaches, and back pain. If you're unsure if your condition is something I can work with, please don’t hesitate to reach out here.
At Sama, my passion lies in easing pain and releasing restrictions. The modalities I employ are designed to help you recover from injuries, manage or eliminate your chronic pain, and reduce your stress.
Deep Tissue: Deep tissue uses firm pressure to penetrate deeply into the bellies of your muscles to release long-standing knots, adhesions, and tension. This modality uses a small amount of creme to glide across your skin while affecting the deepest layers of muscle tissue.
Myofascial Release: MFR uses long, deep, sustained strokes to gently elongate and stretch the fascia, or connective tissue, that encases and infuses all of the muscles in your body. This modality uses little to no creme to restructure the fascia below your skin.
Sports Massage: This technique will call upon you to actively move and passively release your muscles. With your help and specific sports massage protocols, we'll release trigger points, adhesions, knots, and restrictions.
I offer both individual and group yoga classes to teach people how to improve posture, decrease aches and pains, and move more efficiently in gravity.
Build strength where you're weak
Increase flexibilty where you're restricted
