Samantha graduated with high honours from the Athletic Therapy degree program from Sheridan College earning the OATA scholarship and the Dr. Bob Jackson Research awards. To further her education Sam continued on to become a Registered Massage Therapist. She has the skills and knowledge from both her designations to help her clients and athletes achieve their dreams to their full potential. Sam believes that combining both athletic therapy and massage therapy is an art as well as a science, and that each person and condition or injury is unique and deserves individually oriented treatment. She sets high but attainable goals for both her clients and herself. She practices using an evidence-based and patient-centered approach to care while identifying the source of pain, correcting atypical movement patterns and improving optimal health, for long term resolution of injuries. This is done through utilizing manual soft tissue therapy techniques, joint mobilization, fascial stretching and rehabilitative modalities and exercise. These highly valued elements incorporated into treatment programs return her clients to a pain free life style.
