Online Massage Educator
Samaara Robbins graduated with honors from the Boulder College of Massage Therapy. She studied Massage for People Living with Cancer and Oncology Massage in the Hospital Setting with Gayle MacDonald. She is a Certified Manual Lymph Drainage Therapist and Breast Cancer Rehabilitation Therapist.
Samaara received her first massage ever just a few weeks after beginning treatment for cancer. For that hour massage Samaara felt like just another girl enjoying a spa day–a girl without cancer. Out of that experience she embraced massage for others going through treatment. She worked as the lead massage therapist for Shaw Regional Cancer Center in Vail, CO and opened a private practice in Frisco, CO and later in Truckee, CA serving those diagnosed with cancer and lymphedema.
In 2012, Samaara began teaching and in 2014 she became an NCBTMB approved continuing education provider in oncology massage. She developed the online massage modules for Wellness for Cancer. Samaara is also a Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider offering CEUs to yoga instructors in restorative and restorative flow.
