Grounded Medicine's

Samantha is a qualified and passionate Doctor of Chinese Medicine (with a double degree in Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine).

From a young age she has had a strong interest in the interconnection of the mind, body and spirit. You will often find her head buried in a book on psychology; perhaps on trauma's effect on our physiology or how attachment styles affect our relationships.

In her previous life (as she calls it), Samantha studied and worked in Finance. After experiencing ill health and burn out she realised she wasn't suited to this lifestyle, so she went to India to study Traditional Tantra Yoga. She taught yoga in Amsterdam before she went back to India to immerse herself in further study of modalities such as Tai Chi, Reiki, Meditation, and crystal healing.

It was during her time in India she experienced the profound effects of regular acupuncture treatment and decided to study Chinese Medicine.

Samantha’s treatments support your ability to transform obstruction that is preventing you from living your best life. This may be manifesting as physical, emotional or spiritual symptoms; or perhaps a combination.

Samantha is deeply passionate about mental health and woman's health, having experienced menstrual migraines, incapacitating dysmenorrhea (aka: period pain), trauma, and mental health issues herself. She is also a general practitioner and can treat a range of conditions ranging from digestive issues to low immunity, pain to musculoskeletal issues. 

Samantha truly believes most imbalances have an emotional component and loves to treat from this perspective.
