Deserve Exceptional Perspective
Dr. Sandra S.L. Fielding, DAOM, LAc.
I’m Dr. Sam Fielding — an Ivy league educated Doctor of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine.
I’m a contributing author of Winning Mindset, and healer helping the transformation of women all over the world, from depression, anxiety, debilitating migraines, even late stage cancer to living an abundant vibrant life beyond their wildest dreams.
I’m a mother of two, wife, competitive equestrian, skier, runner, climber and artist and I’m often told that I look twenty years younger than my age.
How do I do this all?
My gift has always been having a perspective to see things that others cannot see.
I can make the unseen tangible and clear to others in ways that helps uncover what is blocking them from healing and living their fullest lives.
I have innately been living the life of least resistance my entire life, which is how I’ve managed to achieve what many deem impossible.
This journey began from a young age being born into a family of orthopedic surgeons.
It was always assumed that medicine was my career, but early on I realized that as a surgeon, my ability to help was limited.
My language has always been energy.
I loved all sports and activities that allowed me to explore how we interact with energy physically in space.
For me a love of riding and horses was my first introduction into the power of aligned energy, and the ability to communicate on an energetic level.
After college I was lost and without a scripted path for the first time in my life. I had no idea of what I was supposed to be doing.
I had long since abandoned the thought of medicine and moved out west hoping to find an answer.
Struggling to find something to identify with, I found skiing.
Within five years I was a sponsored skier for Alta Ski Area, Roxy, and Surefoot and a professional ski patroller.
I lived in New Zealand, Utah, and Kirkwood, CA as a ski patroller, and thought that I had found my calling, but it wasn’t long that I realized that I had much more to share than living a life in the mountains.
But the lessons I learned shaped my lens.
After a health scare of my own in my early twenties, I realized that I had to make some changes in all aspects of my life if I wanted to maintain the quality of life that I had.
The thought of having a life of medical procedures and an early death, literally scared me into action.
I was not going to take the lesson lightly, and committed my life to learning how to truly heal my body from within.
All parts of it, body, mind, and heart/soul.
When I became an acupuncturist my fascination with energy had come full circle.
With the knowledge and tools to work with the internal energy of the body, I was able to create the system, that I still use to this day, to help people free themselves of chronic pain, autoimmune diseases, infertility,
And to go beyond getting healthy, to being aligned in their body, mind, and soul to unlock their energy in a way that put the magic back into their lives and relationships.
I thought that I had figured it out, and that I was content with my life. Everything was fine, I had nothing to complain about, and I wasn’t really unhappy outside what I considered to be “normal.”
Until I had my first child.
After my daughter was born I had paralyzing Post Partum Depression. At my lowest I was suicidal. I hardly resembled the strong, active, brave and independent woman I once was.
I was completely shattered.
I can still remember lying in my bed, that had become my prison, thinking, “I cannot live feeling like this for the rest of my life.”
Long story short, with the help of acupuncture, and a determined recommitment to all of the things that had brought me joy in my past, helped me to heal.
The primary one being getting back to my number one passion, and that is riding and training horses.
At my lowest point, there was absolutely nothing that could get me out of bed, not even to eat or care for myself. I knew that I needed something to pull me forward, and my love for riding was it.
It may sound trite, or like a good story that someone crafted, but this is the truth.
After my daughter was in bed, I would go to ride at a local farm for lessons, since I had no horse or connections where I lived. I could hardly ride, like I remembered, but being back on a horse reminded me that I could still feel something other than pain.
Every time I left it was struggle. I literally cried on the way, feeling overwhelmed and conflicted about leaving, but by the time I was returning in the car from my ride I felt a glimmer of hope that I wasn’t gone.
I knew from that moment on that following one’s passion was an essential part of living a full life. For me it gave me back my life.
Fast forward to today, here I am mother of two amazing children, with my supportive, loving husband, and finally doing the work that I was meant to do.
I always resisted using the word “coach,” because to me it seemed like a trendy new profession for twenty somethings wanting a laptop lifestyle. It didn’t seem to fit what I do for my clients.
I give people their freedom, their fire, and passion for life back. I help create a true transformation, not follow some cookie cutter plan developed by a coaching program.
I help clients find solutions and ways to take the burden and stress from a “problem” out of their lives. One that has repeatedly appeared in their lives in different manifestations.
Whether it’s tension in a personal relationship, like with their mothers, or difficulty navigating how to be a strong, powerful woman, in a way that does not clash with others in the work environment and is holding them back professionally, or feeling like they’re wasting their time or talents in their current jobs. The lack of resolution over time begins to impede their ability to make progress in all areas of their lives.
The sticking point becomes an undercurrent of tension and background noise in their heads, that exhausts them mentally, physically, and emotionally.
They simply cannot “empty their cups” or follow other seemingly useful information, that becomes nothing more than an affirmation of their inability to make a change in their lives. They feel good for a little while, but ultimately they are back where they started, leaving them feeling worse.
The issue becomes such a sticking point that they are literally paralyzed in their lives. This stuck stagnant energy not only affects their personal life and relationships, it also manifests as chronic illness in their bodies, such as insomnia, tension headaches, jaw pain, neck and shoulder pain, PMS, dysmenorrhea, migraines, IBS, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, anxiety and depression.
They are wired but tired, and nothing they have tried seems to last.
They gain weight, energy plumits, sexual desire is lost, they look years older than they should.
They have no motivation for work, let alone the desire to exercise and cook for themselves.
The do not resemble who they are at their cores, because the have completely lost connection to that part of themselves.
I help them reconnect.
Beyond healing, my patients have been taken back in time 20-30 years to regain the vitality and beauty inside and out of their youth,
And fallen back in love with their lives.
I have been called a “genius” and “intuitive,” but what I have done with my life is not exceptional,
What I have done myself to heal myself, everyone can learn.
Anyone who wants to find a solution and a way forward to take the burden and stress out of their lives, to find and understand their purpose, find freedom, and harmony in their lives can .
It’s about healing yourself to from within and knowing the right way to take action.
If you’re curious to see how you can apply this in your own life, schedule a call to talk. There’s nothing at stake in your honesty, except whether or not I can be of service to you.
