Samanthia Omega

Licensed Massage Therapist
200 Hour YTT
B.S. in Psychology

Samanthia is a movement enthusiast, well-being advocate, deep
listener, and passionate learner. Her curiosity for psychology and health &
wellness led her to pursue a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Psychology and
eventually led her into her first yoga class.

In 2014, she completed her 200hr Yoga Teacher Training with Buffy Barfoot in
Denver Colorado; a training packed with mythology, breath-work, meditation, and
a detailed breakdown of postural alignment. She continued her training by taking
workshops with yogis such as Christina Sell, Darren Rhodes, and Eoin Finn. After
teaching for some time, her love of anatomy and eagerness to offer more to her
students, encouraged her to become a Licensed Massage Therapist.

Samanthia graduated from New School For Massage in Chicago
where she was trained in the following modalities: Swedish, Thai, Trigger
Point, Chair, Myofascial Release, Deep Tissue and Sports Massage. Upon graduating, she has continued to expand her knowledge of the body and mind in order to deliver the best to her clients. Through understanding the deep connectedness of the body and exploring pain/tissue tension through the lens of functional neurology, she has been able to assist foot pain by treating tissue around the abdomen and shoulder pain by treating tissue around the liver. Pain can be a great big, peculiar puzzle and something that our society is still trying to understand through research.  

Because of this, her approach to bodywork may standout as different from other therapists. Her current practice is heavily influenced by the understanding that you cannot force the body to relax. Massage therapy is about having a conversation with the nervous system, asking it what it needs, and providing those things. The tissues under tension will relax when it feels safe to do so! Because of this, she is thoughtful about how she tailors each session with her clients, making sure they feel heard and that she cultivates an environment of safety and trust.
