Samaritans Walk


 Samaritans Walk opened in 2010 inside of the Ashland Athletic Club after being challenged to work with a client who had suffered a spinal cord injury. This was an enlightening experience and one that would change our niche. Ever since our opening date, we have expanded our expertise and business growth in order to help those who are trying to better themselves. We are a family run business that strives to strengthen the lives of others. Sessions are by appointment only.
