Samantha Craig-Wood

BSc (Hons) Ost

Samantha has been in practice for 26 years, and enjoys treating patients of all ages. After gaining her first degree in zoology, she did a degree in osteopathy at the British School of Osteopathy in London, where she took elective clinics in sports injuries and treatment of the older person, qualifying in 1996. She then worked in GP surgeries in London and Sussex, as well as osteopathic practices in Windsor and Dorking, before settling in Cranleigh and building up the practice.

After a skiing injury nearly brought her osteopathic career to an end, she completed a postgraduate Diploma in Paediatric Osteopathy from the Osteopathic Children’s Centre in 2005, where she gained valuable experience treating babies, children and women both during and after pregnancy. She takes a whole person approach with her patients, and feels honoured to have treated four generations of some families. She lives in Cranleigh with her partner and son, and loves walking the Surrey Hills with their dogs in her spare time.
