"Amazing massage, Best I've ever had. Really sorted my middle back and shoulder issue. Can't wait to go back."
"She is awesome at what she does, finds every niggle and gets it loose, and also puts you to sleep. Get at her if you have any niggles, tight in areas or just wanna treat yourself!"
"Words won't do justice the massage I just had here. This woman is a true healer"
"Sammy is amazing and really knows her stuff, I've had a dodgy knee for a while and it wasn't getting better, Sammy did a really great job getting to know what the issue was and working on it, it already feels so much better i can't wait to go back! beautiful calm and welcoming space too, you won't regret going here"
"Thanks Sammy. I've had so much body work since i was a very young child and i just wanted to tell you that you are really good at what you do. Thank you."
As an athlete I have started seeing Sammy to help with all my little aches and pains from loads of training. She is not only amazing at what she does but professional, makes you feel comfortable and genuinely cares about YOU and always wants to make sure you are feeling 100% when you leave her. Couldn’t recommend her highly enough!!
Highly recommend Sammy to anyone seeking a quality massage from a professional therapist. Her experience with high level athletes has given her an amazing sense of how to target problem areas and release tight/tense muscles.
Sammie is an amazing therapist, she is unbelievably skilled at finding the spots that really need releasing to address pain, muscle tightness or for relaxation. She has a lovely warm demeanour, knowing when you need a relaxing quiet time or are happy to talk. Love the essential oils she offers in the room and the natural products she works with. Sammie has created an inviting space in her room. Knowledgable and highly skilled NMT therapist with a natural gift for massage.
