Meet the team at 23therapies
I qualified in the Beauty and Massage industry in 1996 and have either owned or co-owned salons ever since.
I pride myself in the personal interaction with my clients, creating a relaxed, comfortable environment in which professional therapy treatments are offered.
My treatments are designed for ladies and gents of all ages.
I look forward to meeting you and providing you with a truly wonderful experience.
Hi I'm Sam and I have 20 years experience in the field of complementary health.
I like to figure out the “why” and not just the “what” when it comes to clients’ injuries or issues and working together to gain the best possible outcome for you.
I am especially interested in treating soft tissue injuries/issues and related health issues such as headaches/migraines.
I use a combination of all my skills to treat (acupuncture, cupping , trigger point release using needles (dry needling) and/or acupressure, soft tissue therapy) tailoring my treatments to meet your needs and bring about the best possible result.
I continue to be delighted at the effect Traditional Chinese medicine/ acupuncture has on the wide variety of health issues that I treat within the clinic.
I grew up in Franklin and now live in Waiuku with my husband, I love travel (domestic and international) and spending time with friends and family.
After a few years of living overseas I returned and opened my own clinic in Pukekohe in 2005, and alongside Charlene and Max opened 23therapies in 2014.
In this time I have built up a good network of health professionals and will offer referrals if I feel another treatment may suit you better
Give me a call for a chat to find out how I can help you!
I am a firm believer in regular massage to relieve stress, prevent injuries and to achieve optimal levels of well being.
I am passionate about what I do and love educating my clients about the benefits of massage
Trained at NZ College of Massage 2006
Relaxation / Sports / Pregnancy / Therapeutic / Deep Tissue
In May 2019 I returned to Franklin after living in Australia for five years and joined the crew at 23 Therapies in May 2020
I entered the wellness industry thirty odd years ago, and it is so wonderful to see over that time, new concepts and habits being adopted with the viewpoint of an holistic outcome.
My official training is in Homeopathy and Therapeutic Massage, however over the years my learning has covered many new techniques and increased my understanding of the expertise of other therapies and how they can compliment what I do.
I have been a Massage Therapist for 18 years, working a wide range of venues, from spas to sports fields. I usually start my massage with a Myofascial Release, and then I use a range of tools, Neuromuscular technique to target individual muscles, Trigger points to release tender spots, and Muscle Energy technique for increasing range of movement.
Homeopathic Medicine is a fabulous medicine targeting the mind, body and soul and incredibly effective in helping with chronic conditions and strengthening the immune system.
Pricing starts from $60, this covers acute conditions like coughs and colds, this includes remedy.
$80 Children 12 and under First consultation, includes remedy
$120 Adults First consultation, includes remedy.
If you are not sure if Homeopathy will help you, I can offer you a free 15 minute no-obligation consultation and we can take it from there.
I also do EFT or Tapping and I hope to hold workshops over the coming year.
I have a huge passion for beauty and love to help my clients achieve their skincare goals, in clinic and love to provide home care advice. I studied at Elite School of Beauty and Spa, NZ’s number one beauty school, where I gained my makeup artistry and beauty therapy qualifications.
Facials, Brows and Lash Lifts are just some of my speciality treatments. Looking forward to treating you at 23therapies
