My name is Sam, and I provide a space for people to feel heard, empowered, and safe. I am fascinated by how the mind, body and soul are all connected, and how an imbalance in one part can affect the person.
I am a practising midwife, and I qualified in 2008. I have been lucky enough to work in all clinical areas of maternity, including being a midwife in Australia. However, my main passion lies in community midwifery, which is where I work currently. Individualised care, birth preparation and mental health are my main passions.
In 2018 I discovered the magic of Womb Healing and Fertility Massage Therapy. I quickly learned that this was no ordinary massage. This massage is aimed to release, restore, and revitalise. As well as hands on massage techniques of the sacrum (lower back), upper and lower abdomen, the treatment includes different techniques including rhythmic massage, rebozo wrapping and ends with a meditation focused on each individual need.
I have now been opened to the world of women’s health in a way I had never been before (which is surprising as I had been a midwife for 10 years previously). The healing properties of castor oil packs, how rhythmic massage releases abdominal tension stored physically and emotionally, how fasting from food is incredible but only during certain times of the cycle, essential oils, natural light, cold water therapy, eating whole foods, the products that we put in and, on our bodies, – the list just goes on.
My mission is to empower women to feel at home in their own bodies, to embrace their individual journey and to feel a deep connection between their heart and their womb. So many women feel disconnect and hatred towards their womb, for many different reasons. I aim to bring grounding, peace, and healing.
Before the massage starts, I always love to offer 30 minutes of time devoted to my client. We drink herbal tea and I provide a safe space for them to say what is on their heart. Fertility, menopause, menstrual issues and grief are all such taboo subjects. We are getting better at openly discussing these themes; however, I offer a safe, non-judgemental space for my client to share anything and everything that they need to. I want my clients to feel heard, to feel cared for, and to feel nurtured. Time and time again, my clients say that they feel better before they even get onto the massage bed. Releasing tears, fears, guilt and resentment is incredibly liberating. We should acknowledge our emotions and how they can be affecting our day to day lives.

This 90 minute treatment includes 30 minutes of consultation time, for you to share what is on your heart. I use rhythmic massage to release stored physical and emotional tension. The “hands on” part of the massage consist of lower back, upper abdominal and lower abdominal massage, to bring balance of hormones and improve blood circulation. To end the treatment, rebozo cloths are wrapped around the body to promote feelings of safety and grounding. This will be paired with a personalised guided mediation to uplift and restore.
"A couple of weeks after my massage is ovulated from my right ovary which NEVER happens, I then had a normal period a couple of weeks later. I'm over the moon! I definitely think that the massage played a huge part in this especially the meditation at the end as I felt that I let go of a lot of things during that. I cant wait to come back in the future."
“I had a fertility massage with Sam and she was amazing, she made me feel so relaxed and comfortable, and I felt amazing walking out of there. She made me feel like I was not on my own going through my journey and she understands how I felt. I will definitely be going back.”
“As I suffer with pelvic, abdominal and back pain. I found this treatment to be very soothing & energising to my lower abdominal area. It evoked some powerful mindfulness and happy emotions. The treatment was very calming and uplifting. I definitely will be booking in for more treatments.”
I really cannot recommend Sam enough, she's the loviest person but she's also so so knowledge in what she does. I always come away feeling completely relaxed and it's improved my physical pain so much over the last few months and relieved some symptoms of my endo completely. I love the whole thing, I love the pre massage catch up and the massage itself is one of the if not the most relaxing thing I’ve found! The end whether that’s a meditation or just silence is so peaceful & calm. You will not regret seeing Sam for a treatment, I’d see her every week if I could!
I conceived on my second cycle after the massage. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience with Sam. The massage was deeply relaxing and I felt like I was connected more spiritually to my body. I think I had been quite tough on myself for some of the difficulties I've experienced with my body and the experience gave me some acceptance over what I had gone through previously on my fertility journey.
I definitely slept better after having the treatment which resulted in an increase in my energy levels. I felt I understood my body more ie rather than giving in to my symptoms I had taken control of them, went with them and accepted them which felt powerful.
The consultation and massage gave me head space and time to take control of my symptoms rather than them controlling me which was empowering.
Had a wonderful menopausal consultation and massage session with Sam where I felt truly nurtured. Sam has a compassionate presence and easily tapped into my emotional, spiritual and physical needs. I certainly felt uplifted and more connected with my body after the first session. It was an uplifting experience as Sam had provided me with a way of taking control during an uncertain time in my life as the session allowed me to be kind to my body and mind. Thank you Sam I can't wait to book my next powerful session.
My cycles have aligned regularly instead of being all over the place. Sam is a lovely person who makes you feel at ease. She brings healing magic to a massage.
Sam was thoroughly professional, kind and very sensitive to my needs. She sets a very calm and lovely atmosphere and is very skilled in her technique. I felt wonderful afterwards and will definitely be booking again soon!
Thoroughly enjoyed my menopause massage. Sam is very professional and friendly. She put me at ease and tailored the treatment to meet my needs. I wish I lived nearer so that I could have this treatment more regularly. Definitely recommend 😊
I provide the treatments from my garden office at home. I have lovingly named this place my “She Shed”. It is private and quiet. I am located in Blacon, Chester.
