Meet Samantha Witman, LMT
Samantha Witman, LMT began her journey into the Healing Arts in 2005, after years of traveling and living abroad. Her eclectic background is, similar to the backgrounds of many healers, holistic and ever-expanding, taking the many parts of the whole person into account - body, mind and spirit.
As a massage therapist, Samantha holds space for each individual’s unwinding with consideration for their own unique needs. Her work and her client relationships are guided by deep listening and intuition along with her extensive knowledge and understanding of the human body. Samantha has spent most of her life in a deep practice of embodiment and mindfulness through meditation, yoga, running, dancing, other physical pursuits including hiking, rock climbing, and snowboarding, and receiving bodywork from numerous others in the field.
Along with massage therapy, Samantha is also a Certified Health Coach and Yoga Instructor. Samantha has been practicing yoga for 24 years and started teaching in 2008. Her yoga teachings are fluid and creative and she encourages students to move confidently in their own bodies, connected with the breath. Samantha has a deep appreciation for restorative yoga along with the power of meditation and stillness in her practice. Her massage work is largely informed by this aspect and she finds it extremely beneficial to guide clients to a restorative space in order for their bodies to receive the work and to allow true healing to occur.
Massage sessions with Samantha may include elements of Deep Tissue, Swedish Massage, Craniosacral Therapy, Myofascial Release, Thai Massage, and Reflexology. The work that she offers assumes a partnership between client and therapist so that true, long-term relief and resolution of physical issues can occur. Samantha considers it a true honor to hold space for others as they connect with their bodies and are guided toward comfort, ease, physical freedom, vitality, and an optimal state of wellness.

Power to Heal
When given a chance, our bodies have the innate wisdom and ability to heal themselves in many ways.
Path to Balance
Seek the middle path. A healthy lifestyle exists somewhere in the spaces between pleasure, joy, and self-discipline. Each path is unique.
Live in Harmony
Seek living in harmony with the seasons. By aligning our lifestyles with nature's cycles, we find balance and wellness.
Power to Grow
We must first show up in all of our vulnerabilities. This is where we find the roots of our suffering and, from this place, we can begin to change and grow.
Space to Unwind
I love supporting others in the deepening of self-awareness and for the unwinding of body, mind, and the entire Self from the chaos of life.
It is our birthright to live vibrant, healthy, happy and fulfilling lives. It is up to us to claim that birthright.
“Like all talented artisans and healers, Samantha achieves a seamless integration between life and work. Her innate positivity and depth of knowledge allow her to tune into every individual's personal needs with great efficiency.”
