Overview

Welcome,

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.

Testimonials

Feb. 06, 2017

By Seth in San Francisco, CA

Sam was extremely professional and poised. The room that he massaged me and was warm and comfortable and has a really nice vibe. At the beginning of the massage, Sam used a singing bowl to help me drop into my body. Then as he started out slowly with light touch and gradually worked into deep tissue work that I really really needed. I had the experience of almost falling asleep, I was so relaxed. I kept drifting between sleep and waking. Overall, the experience was multi-dimensional in that my body was attended to very well, the sound bowl was added a vibrational element, and the long, deep, strokes allowed me to relax, head to toe. I was able to let go of some emotional anxiety, as well. I highly recommend this practitioner!

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!
