Samantha Rocha, RMT
Graduating from the West Coast College of Massage Therapy Samantha offers a comprehensive approach to her treatments by incorporating techniques from a variety of disciplines all with the goal of helping each individual find balance in both their bodies and their daily lives.
Often working with people experiencing chronic discomfort disorders Samantha strives to be a resource for her patients while continuing to further her own education in the field of soft tissue therapy. Her interests lie in treating Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) dysfunction, as well as more recently, in working with Paediatric patients. She has found that little bodies are just as prone to holding tension, developing postural patterns which can lead to discomfort and more importantly it is never too early to share a healthy sense of self awareness and education around self care.
Samantha’s time in school led her to appreciate the importance of patient education as an integral part of peoples therapies. She hopes to add an element of inspiration to the lives of each of her patients and appreciates being a trusted part of their wellness regime.
Sam Low, RMT
One of the few you will find who proudly calls himself a geek; a geek of anatomy that is. In your treatment with Sam, you will probably learn more about human anatomy than you anticipated … a byproduct of being an instructor at the Camosun College teaching a variety of classes in their Massage Therapy Program.
Sam spent many years training for the Olympics in taekwondo and he has his blackbelt certificate on the wall to remind those who decide not to pay! Only kidding … but jokes aside, his passion for, and experience in, athletics allows him insightful knowledge into the successful treatment of a wide variety of sports related injuries.
In working with competitive athletes including cyclists, runners, swimmers, racquet sport players and a variety of other contact sports Sam has become skilled in postural assessment and treatment techniques aimed at being the most effective for his patients.
A treatment with Sam will be certain to address any discomfort or dysfunction related to soft tissue injury or imbalance by using a variety of treatment modalities catered to each patients individual needs.
