Sam Boswell, Rehabilitative Massage Therapy

Sam Boswell

Sam began practicing massage in 1989. In his first week of practice, he read "Myotherapy" (Bonnie Prudden) and began using the acupressure-like trigger point techniques. In that week, several clients remarked that they were pain-free for the first time in years. He was hooked.

Among the courses that Sam has taken are St. John Neuromuscular Therapy, Myofascial Release, Craniosacral Therapy, Manual Lymph Drainage, Strain-Counterstrain, Kinesiotaping, Biovalent Systems Manual Therapy (Frank Lowen), Spinal Touch (for which he is a certified workshop instructor), Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization and Mulligan Concept courses.

In Spokane, Sam was Program Director of Massage at Apollo College (now Carrington College) and implemented a 750-course program, while teaching students and overseeing several teachers.

He is a member of the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA) and a continuing education provider of massage therapy.

Sam recommends Pilates conditioning. See Master Teacher, Elizabeth Jones-Boswell's website: www.pilatesrehab.org for safe exercises.
