All in-studio massages include aromatherapy, warm towels and a relaxing warm back wrap.

I work on absolutely everyone, all body types/sexual orientation/gender identities welcomed.

While I myself am new to Cathedral City, I am
not new to massage. I graduated 10 years ago with a degree in Health Sciences from the Swedish Institute in NYC and honed my skills and techniques... working all over the country in different spa settings for the last decade.

Every session is unique - we will start with a quick chat so I understand what you and your body want and need. The session will be tailored made according to your needs and wishes.

My sessions are all about YOU! This is YOUR time to treat yourself and allow me to do the work for you. Each session is created to make you totally comfortable while I work your body allowing your muscles to relax, your pain to cease to exist and your cares to float away.

I specialize in deep tissue muscle work but also perform a great relaxing Swedish style massage. More often than not I combine them all into my sessions allowing your body the full benefits of body work.

I see Sam for a massage about once a month.
He comes to my place and since I have my own table so have gave me a small discount!

That aside, I look forward to our monthly appointment and am never disappointed. Sam has clearly been doing this for a while and KNOWS WHAT HE IS DOING!!

Sam was quick to respond, clear in his texts and very patient with my many questions.
I came to him with some back pain only to realize my entire body needed some TLC. Sam TLC'ed me and then some! I would highly recommend to anyone a massage session with Sam !!

When it comes to massage, this is the guy for you. I can honestly say the massage I got from Sam was one of the best massages I’ve ever had. I also am a CMT and find it difficult to find a massage therapist that is up to par with what I’ve learned and enjoy myself. I’ve lived in Palm Springs for over a year now and I finally feel that I’ve found the best massage in town. He has an amazing touch and very intuitive hands. I booked this appointment with relaxation in mind and a little deep tissue work where needed. That goal was accomplished plus more. I left feeling extremely relaxed and like a brand new person. I highly suggest Sam for a massage whether you’re a visitor or local to Palm Springs!

My experience with Sam was exceptional!!
Scheduling my appointment was easy and enjoyed every moment. Booked an hour massage and should have booked longer. Sam did a great job addressing my concerns and as his post mentions, I let everything “float away” and absolutely enjoyed myself. His skills are on point!! I look forward to scheduling again soon. Thanks Sam!

A phenomenal massage. Sam is incredibly talented and welcoming. From the second I walked in, I was relaxed and at ease. Extremely professional and enormously intuitive bodywork. He knew exactly where my muscles needed the most work. He applied pressure intensely and thoughtfully - really going in on my upper back, and was responsive to my needs throughout the massage. I cannot wait to go back :D

Sam is a very skilled massage therapist. He used a mix of techniques and varied the pressure to relax some very tight back muscles. He's personable too. Very pleased with the session.

Sam was visiting from out of town. He was very quick to reply to me request for massage and scheduling was easy. The location was easy to find and it was clean and nice. He's friendly and engaging. The massage was great, offering all of what I would hope for and expect in a massage. I would definitely seek him out again when he's in town.
