"Nurturing yourself is not selfish- it's essential to survival and your wellbeing."
Renee Peterson Trudeau
Hi! So glad you are here! My name is Samantha Byars. My family and I relocated to the Auburn/ Opelika area in August of 2021. Before moving I spent the previous 5 years in private practice within the local OBGYN office spending the majority of my time walking through pregnancies with mommas. I have a Bachelor of Science in education with a degree in Exercise Science from Samford University graduating in 2007. My love for anatomy and the human body developed while earning my degree. After Samford, I obtained my massage therapy degree at Red Mountain Institute for the Healing Arts. My love for pregnancy and postpartum support started in 2015 when we had our first child. By 2021 we had four children and I had learned first-hand how important bodywork is during these stages of life can be. My goal is to support women through every stage of life.
Concierge therapeutic massage therapy so you can be supported in the privacy and comfort of your own home.

Certified Nurturing the Mother® Pregnancy and Postpartum Massage Therapist
A prenatal massage can be beneficial at every stage in pregnancy from relaxation to a safe drug-free relief of aches and pains. It can reduce swelling, ease pressure on the sciatic nerve, learn relaxation techniques for labor, prepare your body for delivery, release emotional tension, and improve sleep patterns.
Postpartum massage is a type of massage therapy used to aid the body’s recovery after giving birth. The massage can help your aching muscles to relax, promote lymphatic drainage and may help you to process the emotional side of birth too.
