About Samara

“Samara” is the Latin word for a winged seed, like the maple whirligigs we loved to throw into the air as children. Like a seed, Samara represents rebirth, revitalization and renewal.

The Samara Healing Center is nestled in a remote rural location on the outskirts of downtown Taneytown, Maryland.  Practitioners at the center provide acupuncture, nutritional counseling, wellness counseling, therapeutic bodywork, sound healing, meditation and energy work.

Jim Thomas M. Ac., Samara’s founder, built it over a four year period (2005-2009) with the intention of it becoming a day retreat location where visitors can learn, heal, relax and simply enjoy nature. Click here to see photos of Samara during its construction.
