Samantha Rix, BEd MAR Dip O.A'
Samantha first graduated from Plymouth University with a Bachelor in Education in 2007. Since, she has worked closely with children and families as a teacher. Throughout her career she has worked both within the UK and Asia. It was during her time in Asia where she was introduced to traditional Chinese therapies. She became fascinated by the healing benefits of these therapies and decided to embark on her journey to support local families with finding a holistic therapy that promotes physical and emotional healing and generally improved wellbeing.
Samantha qualified as an Aromatherapist in 2018 and joins our clinic as a recently qualified Reflexologist 2019, having acquired a Level 8 Diploma with the Complementary Therapy School which is the only private school in the UK to offer university credits at this level. She is a full member of the Association of Reflexologists. She is also qualified in Hot Stone Therapy and Indian Head Massage. Her passion for the field continues to grow and takes part in many community events, educating families on the health benefits of physical therapies as well as founding charity work for Reflexology for teenagers with mental health concerns.
As with many holistic therapists I started training in this field to understand and help with my own health problems and that of my son's. I began my journey with Bowen Therapy in 2014 and subsequently undertook training in Hypnotherapy to develop a deeper understanding of my clients needs.
I have recently started training as a Doula and look forward to offering this service in the future.
