In 2013, Dr. Sam received a Master’s of Science in Traditional Chinese Medicine from the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine (ACTCM). While completing her master’s, she studied a variety of massage modalities and became certified in tui na.
My mission is to create individualized treatment plans which will guide patients to experience freedom of movement and optimum health.
A beloved friend/mentor of mine always told me, “prevention is cheaper than the cure.” and I take this to heart. Lifestyle modifications play a huge role in overcoming dis-ease. In addition, I use an integrative approach and realizing there is not a “one-size fits all” treatment plan.
“PBAM has been the the best! Sam has a pleasant, professional and confidence-inspiring approach to her highly effective treatment. I am now able to walk freely, climb hike and ski again after years of limited mobility. Just the right remedy.”
Dr. Sam practices functional medicine. Despite her long list of credentials, she keeps up to date with recent peer-reviewed studies.
