Testimonials

Overall, I just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU to Samantha because without her kindness, expertise, and patience, I have no idea where I would be!

I was a wreck and in so much pain when I first started seeing Samantha. My baby cried constantly, I was tired and in pain. When I began to suffer from postpartum depression, Sam picked up on the signs even when I didn’t and let my midwife know. I will always appreciate that care.

When I first began PT, I was concerned that my pain wouldn’t ever go away, that I would continue to have limitations, that sex would never be the same, and that I would never want to have a baby again. I was beaten down and nothing felt normal. She was always so encouraging and listened to me speak from a place of total fear of the unknown and in complete vulnerability. She understood that and could help me see a light at the end of the tunnel. She helped me to keep going.

I just wanted to let her know I am PAIN FREE and living a NORMAL life, thanks to her. I took my son to one of those trampoline places today and I jumped and played with my boy and I had no pain and no fear that I would have issues later on. I am so GRATEFUL.

If I ever talk with another woman who quietly (and sometimes shamefully) tells me of any pelvic floor symptoms she is dealing with, I always tell her to GO see Samantha. Thank YOU for what you do!

I can’t tell you how good I feel, better than I can remember.  Swelling in legs and hands is significantly better.  A few pounds gone.  

I went back to all the instructions kept from our sessions and committed to the hot drink, a little breakfast, a big cup of water, every morning first thing. Of course, diet is also good. Even with the holidays and a few days of holiday meals, it’s worked!!! It’s been a year since I started working with you, roller coaster at times, but think I’ve made it to a place where I have a set of habits that will work. It’s been life changing, more than the victory over my temperamental tummy!!

I can’t tell you how grateful I am that the journey led me to your team!!
