Hi there!

I'm Samantha Davis (she/her), Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT), Certified Prenatal & Postpartum Massage Therapist (CPPMT), Certified Educator of Infant Massage (CEIM), and owner of Louisville Prenatal Massage.

With 14+ years of experience as a massage therapist, my goal is to help you feel better so that you can have your best pregnancy and live your best life!

Early in my career, studying neuromuscular therapy allowed me to master gentle deep-tissue techniques and provide lasting pain relief. I quickly saw patterns in who was showing up to my practice with chronic pain, from migraine, to fibromyalgia, to hypermobility, and more.

 

As a curious and lifelong learner, I dove into the disconnection between the fact that 70% of people with chronic pain are women and folks assigned female at birth, but 80% of pain research is conducted on men.

 

To say this lit the fire in my belly would be an understatement!

 

In 2022, I founded my practice in Louisville, Kentucky, to serve women and gender-expansive folks experiencing chronic pain. This quickly blossomed into a passion for providing support during the childbearing years — and thus Louisville Prenatal Massage was "born"!

After a session at my clinic, you'll feel so much better. Massage can be absolutely life-changing before, during, and after your pregnancy.

When I'm not working with clients or continuing my professional education, I enjoy: tending my garden, going on nature walks, reading, and spending quality time with my family, my friends, and my tuxedo kitty, Picabo! And as often as I can get to a home match, you can find me cheering on Racing Louisville, FC at Lynn Family Stadium!

I invite you to reach out to me so that we can chat about how massage can help you reduce pain, decrease swelling, and have an easier pregnancy and labor. I look forward to meeting you!
