About Your Therapist

Hey! I’m Sam, your registered massage therapist and mobility specialist. Why should you come see me? Well, for starters I’m here for you. Not only am I passionate about the work that I do, but I believe it is my purpose to help educated individuals on body awareness and mindfulness.

After graduating Algonquin in 2014, I had a drive for wanting to work with athletes and spent a year working alongside the head athletic therapist at Algonquin College treating various varsity athletes in volleyball, basketball, soccer and rugby. While in Ottawa, I took every opportunity I could get to work hands on with athletes and their injuries, working with Crossfit and triathlon events, varsity Ottawa U hockey and football teams, and travelling as a team therapist with Algonquin.


I've had a steady yoga practice since the age of 14 and have a passion for all that it brings both mentally and physically. I love to incorporate yoga concepts into mobility and massage, teaching people how to move with confidence and bring awareness to their mental focus. I also enjoy training in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and have had the opportunity to work with various coaches and athletes in the MMA community and have found a passion for treating and training fighters of all levels. 

I’ve focused my continuing education in movement training, rehabilitation and prehabilitation, joint function, orthopedic massage, pain science, postural alignment, breathing techniques, foot dysfunction, and myofascial tools like cupping.

When you come to see me, I’m assessing your physical and mental health. I want to know what you're feeling, but also what the contributing factors are. If you have pain and reduced range of motion, but on top of that anxiety and stress, we need to address both. Are you a competitive athlete trying to train for a specific sport? I will work with you to help you reach your goals and optimize your training potential. Just trying to get better sleep, go for a walk, or do some yoga without pain? Let's find out what isn’t working for you and make it work. 

You and me, we are a team. I don’t fix, I work to empower change and help you help yourself.
