Prenatal and Postpartum Massage Therapist
Kentucky License #271448
Hi, I'm Samantha, owner of Gaia Massage, LLC, and Licensed Massage Therapist. I have over 13 years of experience in massage therapy. I started Gaia Massage, LLC in 2022 with a vision to help women achieve their wellness goals through the practice of massage therapy. How do we do this? By specializing in prenatal and postpartum massage for the childbearing year, and neuromuscular massage for clients living with chronic pain.
Prenatal massage is far more than just relaxing! I use scientifically proven, safe, and effective techniques to relieve pain, create relaxation so the body can heal and grow, and help prepare for labor by ensuring ease of movement, strength of muscles, and creating a strong mind-body connection. This care continues into the postpartum year with specific techniques to help heal from childbirth, including possible scar tissue from Cesarean delivery. Caring for a new little one also comes with its own unique set of aches and pains, and lack of rest can exacerbate that. Massage during the postpartum year can help ease the sore muscles and get some much needed rest, so you can be your best self for your little one.
While more research needs to be done to tell us why there is such a disparity, women are more likely to be diagnosed with chronic pain conditions. Massage has been proven to help minimize the amount of pain these clients feel, and less pain means a better quality of life. Neuromuscular massage includes using specific but gentle deep tissue techniques to precisely target your pain. Over my professional career, I've seen many clients with chronic pain benefit and begin to heal from using this work.

"Samantha has been giving me massages for over 10 years. Some of them on location and some of them in my own home. I have always felt very safe to discuss my needs in an open, professional atmosphere. I have degenerative disc disease and Samantha always left me feeling less pain. I managed to find the nirvana between light sleep and pain relief during our massages. A massage from Samantha will leave you feeling like you’re floating on a cloud."
