I have been a student of the Healing Arts for over a decade. The foundation of the bodywork I do is based in Esalen Massage. I aim to create an experience in which my clients can drop into their parasympathetic nervous system, the state of the autonomic nervous system that enables one to heal themselves. In addition to Esalen Massage, I pull... from a dynamic array of modalities including Thai Massage, Shiatsu, Esalen Deep Bodywork & Acupressure. I have been cultivating my therapeutic practice and am excited to help my clients co-create their sessions. I have been part of the LGBTQ community my whole life and am open to offering my bodywork to ALL humans inquiring about healing themselves.

I'm on the road regularly for work and often look for massage options when visiting a new place. I also get massages 1-2x/month in my hometown. Sam has provided the best massages I've come across, hands down. He has a fantastic knack for blending deep muscle work and stretches with light touch in a way that leaves me feeling intensely energized and alive when I leave. Combine that with a strong, deeply caring personality and you're all set for a deeply therapeutic and rejuvenating experience. I'll be going back to Sam whenever I'm in town!
