Kam a took an interest in Holistic Therapies a few years back when she endured a difficult time with bouts of depression. She was amazed at the enormous benefits she felt from receiving  these therapies ongoing.  At the time she tried Reiki sessions to rebalance her whole being and help cope with how she was feeling during those difficult times in her life. Ever since she has not looked back and her interests have now become her passion in complementary therapies.

Kam graduated with a Diploma in Holistic Massage accredited by ITEC, from Foxy Training in Cork in 2017. As she developed a keen interest in the anatomy through this, she found herself wanting to help many more specific types of people who could benefit from having good quality massage therapy and so continued her training in various types such as Pregnancy massage, Indian Head massage, Hot Stones therapy, Reflexology, Reiki (Master& Practitioner) and Hopi Ear Candling. She received an award for “Best Massage Therapist of the Year” around the time of her graduation.


She began her career as a therapist working from home and then felt eager to work as part of a team, to attune her skills working with a wider range of clients. We are delighted that Kam has joined our team at Samana since early 2019 and offer our clients her unique healing skills. She thoroughly enjoys working with clients and has already built a fantastic client base helping people to have a totally relaxing experience.
