Certified Modalities: Hot Stone Therapy, Foot Scrub, Face Massage

Sam graduated from MaKami College with a 3000-hr diploma in June of 2020 and has 4 full years of experience in the industry. She started at Makami right out of high school to deepen her understanding of human bodily functions and help family members suffering from chronic pain. She was drawn to the profession because she likes to make others feel good inside and out; “massage allows me to do just that while helping resolve any aches, pains, and injuries!” 

Sam loves meeting new people and learning new things about the human body. She is always ready for feedback from her clients and fellow therapists to make her treatment plans as detailed and personalized to each guest as possible. Her favorite technique is Trigger Point Therapy, and modality is hot stone therapy; she finds they help relax the mind and the muscle effectively and at the same time.

When she isn’t working, Sam enjoys walking around the River Valley, finding new places to hike with friends, and watching movies (The Breakfast Club is her all-time fave). She also loves food and is an animal lover/cat mom; if you have pets of your own, she’d love to see photos.
