Certified Massage Therapist & Yoga Instructor
In a Nutshell....
Sam Sebastian, CMT
As long as I can remember, I have been highly sensitive to energy through touch. I know that it was imprinted upon me by my father when I was a child. I quickly grew to appreciate and love bodywork, as it is one of our innate human needs. At age 20, I went to my first school for massage. There, I established a foundation in skill and knowledge about human anatomy, technique and proper body mechanics. Eleven years later, I have attended four major schools of massage around the state of California in addition to numerous short-term programs for continuing education. I learned the most influential tools in my toolkit at Esalen, studying both Esalen Massage® and DeepBodywork®. In addition to massage, I have studied Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) to address the needs for healing in the emotional body. In order to generate sound movement in the bodies that I work on, my Yoga Teacher certification has given me a way to create flow where there was tension and strength where there was weakness. Currently I have over five hundred hours of training, and I am now enrolled to embark on a two year journey into Hakomi Method Counseling so that I can deepen the work that I do with my clients. Bodywork is my passion. In it, I have found personal authenticity and deep pride. I love what I do!
