About Both Sides

I'm Katie Reed, the founder of Both Sides Studio, based in Hamilton, Ontario.

My goal with Both Sides is to connect people with plants and plants with people, a relationship that, I hope, cultivates a deeper care for our earth and an instinctive desire to protect and work in harmony with her.  

My offerings come from a holistic understanding that we are an ever-evolving energetic whole, taking this journey together, in this unique moment in time. We are mind, body and spirit and these layers are all taken into account when working together in my practice. 

Using current knowledge and practice and my personal experience within the framework of Traditional Western Herbalism(informed by many other herbal traditions and ancestral knowledge) I hope to  cultivate your connection with the medicine, the mysticism and the capable care of the earth.  I received my initial herbal certification through Sage Mountain's The Art & Science of Herbalism, taught by the inimitable Rosemary Gladstar.  I have since completed additional courses in Natural Perfumery, Incense, Naturopathy, Wildcrafting & Foraging, EFT/Tapping, Herbal Formulation, Medicinal Mushrooms, Stress Management, Biodynamic Gardening, and more; the list will continue to expand as I do.

Whether addressing an acute or chronic health concern, or working to boost vitality, energy and engagement, each of us can benefit from making plants a part of our daily lives.  As we connect to the earth, to other people, and to ourselves, let's welcome plant wisdom as one piece of the puzzle of you, addressed alongside nutrition, rest, breath, movement, regulation, community, joy. 

I am currently offering FREE 15-minute consultations over the phone for anyone interested in learning more, as well as opening my books to a handful of new clients, check out the offerings right here! Alongside personalized herbal programs and botanical facials, I am offering a few products that I hope can support you on your journey, the way they help me along mine, find below in the shop! Join me in the community as I also facilitate workshops and lead plant walks, updates found on this website and on Instagram. 

Please contact me with any questions, and thank you, thank you, thank you for your interest in aligning the power of nature with the power of yourself!
