Samantha received a Masters of Science in Traditional Chinese Medicine from American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine. While completing her masters, she became a certified massage therapist and gained additional certification in tui na Samantha has had a passion for athletics for some time. She competes in trail runs, triathlons, and equestrian sports. In graduate school while competing, Samantha suffered from some common sports injuries and was treated at the student clinic. She was blown away at how drastically the pain was reduced and how the healing time was nearly cut in half. This truly sparked her desire and passion to focus on sports injury acupuncture.
A beloved friend/mentor always told Samantha, “Prevention is cheaper than the cure.” She takes this to heart in educating and treating her patients. Samantha has worked on hundreds of clients over the past 5 years helping them work thru injury and avoiding invasive cortisone shots, pain medications, and surgery with massage and in the past year added acupuncture to her treatments. Her goal is to help her patients avoid surgery if possible and get off of pain medications that are harming them.
She continues her education with orthopedic lectures and clinics, learning more ways to help her patients achieve their personal goals.
