Business Spotlight: Sandpiper Massage
Small businesses and the people who own and work in them are the heart of our Edmonds community. To keep our downtown thriving, it’s more critical than ever that we think local first.
In this new series, we will be highlighting independently-owned businesses, and learn more about the folks that make them run!
Meet Annika Samuelsen from Sandpiper Massage
What is your favorite part of your business?
This isn’t an easy choice, but I have to say I do love my treatment room. It’s such a calm, clean and grounding space.
Why did you start your business?
I started my business in part because I wanted to provide a high standard of care in the field of massage therapy.
Why did you choose Edmonds for your business?
I wanted to be somewhere I’d like spending the day—I love walking downtown and to the waterfront before my workday begins and whenever I have time between sessions.
Why is unique about your business?
Every massage therapist has a blend of personality and style which will attract different types of people. I think the qualities that set me apart are paying close attention to my clients and taking my time with treatment.
Why should people do business with you?
I work with my clients, rather than massaging “at” them.
What are you currently doing differently during this time?
Fall is just around the corner and I’ve just added availability on two Saturday mornings every month to be more accessible to individuals with full work week schedules.
Tell us a fun fact about yourself!
One personal accomplishment I’m very proud of was learning to hand roll a sea kayak (in my case it was a Boreal Designs Baffin P2), which means rolling it without using a paddle.
Is there anything else you’d like to tell us about your business?
I’m very happy to be here, and look forward to growing my business in Edmonds.
