Samantha Louise


Samantha is a Master Bodyworker with over 25 years experience and is the founder of The Natural Health Sanctuary which organically grew from Happy Holistic Healing. Samantha has grown over the years, integrating many styles of massage she has developed from all over the globe. These include Bodywork, Conscious Breath Work, Reiki, Energy Work, Deep Listening, Strong Insightful intuition and Awakened Consciousness to create what most clients say is the best healing and massage treatment they have ever experienced.

Qualifying in Holistic Body Massage during 1996, while working full time, after years of practising, delving into Deep Tissue Techniques, Indian Head Massage, Acupressure, Reiki and Meditation, she decided in 1999 to specialise and train as an Aromatherapist. Over those three years she enjoyed continually developing at The College of Psychic Studies in South Kensington, London. She took a sebatical to India to search for more experience in the Eastern philosophy of massage, meditation and healing she kept learning about in the UK.

Since then, she has been developing her natural style, ranging from spending time teaching Baby Massage before she experienced motherhood, to offering many different Mindful Forest Expereinces, Complementary Therapies, Luxury Body Treatments, Well Being Workshops, Accredited Massage & Healing Courses and Well Being Meditation Retreats. Now with her children ages 14 and 17 she still invites clients for many different bespoke body and energy treatments and spends her time teaching some of them.

Her passion is spending some of her weekends in the summer months taking people on her incredible Well Being Meditation Retreats spending time outdoors to experience the healing vibration of the earth, while performing treatments, mindfulness and guided meditations at various locations creating amazing results, including:- Luxury Treehouses in Norfolk, Glastonbury Sacred Sites, Tintagel, Cornwall, Devon and many other locations.

  • Yesterday I went to the Natural health sanctuary for a Thai foot massage course. Wow what a course and amazing teaching. Sam welcomed us in and we went into the treatment room. The atmosphere was lovely relaxing and calming. Sam has great knowledge of the treatments and we could tell she is very passionate in all her treatments. The way it was taught was fantastic, as it was broken down, and we could practice in sections. I would love to come back for more courses. Thank you Sam

Sam is amazing, always leave feeling relaxed and calm. I’ve been going to Sam for some years now and keep going back. Always finds a way to fit in when she is really busy. Highly recommend!

My time at The Natural Health Sanctuary was exactly what my body and mind has needed. I had a healing lymphatic drainage massage and I felt relaxed and more in tune with my body and mind. I have recently had a struggle in my personal life and the therapy made me feel both positive and calm.The experience Sam gave will defiantly need to be repeat for my mental and physical wellbeing.
