Samantha Tankard ITEC DipSamantha-FMK


Samantha is the owner and instructor for the ‘At home’ baby massage classes with Forget-Me-Knot service.  Here is a little about her…

  • Samantha wanted to become a healer from a young age, but after years of city living, it was the healing energy art of Reiki (level I) that first pulled her in, back in 2006.
  • In 2008 Samantha moved down to Brighton and eventually graduated from the prestigious Brighton-based Wilbury School with an Advanced ITEC Diploma in Holistic Massage, before promptly setting-up her own massage therapy service in part of a holistic facility in Bromley, Kent.
  • In order to be able to incorporate her love for Reiki within her massage, Samantha then sought out another Master and trained in and was attuned to Reiki level II.
  • Interested in growing her massage skills further, that same year Samantha went on to train and certify in Infant Massage Instruction at the Jing Institute of Advanced Massage Training.
  • Finding that she enjoyed the Baby Massage classes she’d been running in Bromley, more than the hands-on massage therapy, Samantha switched her focus, and moved her classes to Brighton, where she has been living since the very first course.
  • After running a few one-to-one sessions, Samantha finally decided to part with the ‘groups’ element of Baby Massage and really focus on more personalised classes in parents homes, and is slowly building a portfolio of glowing feedback from Mums and Dads who’ve benefited from this service.  This is when At Home Baby Massage with Forget-Me-Knot was properly born.
  • Samantha remains very interested in the holistic (i.e. mind, body & spirit) approach to healing and her gentle manner comes from her inner calm – a perfect attribute for working with stressed mummies.
  • Samantha is CRB checked, fully insured and a member of the IICT professional body.
  • She has recently been dubbed ‘The Baby Whisperer’.
