Meet Gerry Samson
In my work as a body worker and yoga teacher, one of the first things I became sensitive to is that everyone wants and receives touch in different ways.I dedicate my practice to giving people both what they need and what they desire for their bodies, whether it is pain relief, relaxation or something in between. My sessions are highly personalized and I work with clients to target specific needs and goals.I am aLicensed Massage Therapist (LMT) and practice Swedish massage, deep tissue, and trigger point therapy. I also incorporate other modalities within my sessions such as Shiatsu and Myofascial Release. Through deeper work I’m able to provide targeted pain relief for strained muscles and healing injuries; alternatively, I can provide a relaxing Swedish styled session grounded in softer energetic touch to sooth and relax the nervous system. I pride myself on establishing a safe and comfortable environment to allow the body to become grounded and unwind so that you can move through your day with ease.
I have been teaching yoga and providing private yoga sessions for 3 years with extensive hands on work, and in 2016 graduated from The Massage School of Boston with over 200 clinical hours of practice and an additional 600 hours of schooling and training. In learning hands on techniques I’ve studied with Nicole Clark learning to work with energetic touch, which influences both my yoga and bodywork practice. I look forward to working with you in your wellness journey!
