Massage Therapists



Cami Sebastian:

I am a Michigan native with a Bachelor’s degree in Sports Medicine from Colorado State University and a graduate of the Port Townsend School of Massage.  I have been a licensed massage practitioner for 10 years. My specialties are Swedish and Deep Tissue massage. If you find yourself sitting at a desk all day, bending over in the garden or having low back trouble, I have a strong comfort level for working deeply with the glutes and low back to relieve pain and stress and improve mobility.  I work with true intention, focusing on each individual’s specific needs.



ReneeRenee Baribault:

I graduated from Port Townsend School of Massage in 2010. I have a background in human biology and anatomy and have studied under local energy healers, herbalists and Chinese medicine practitioners over the past 14 years. Bringing all of these tools, I tailor each session to your unique needs, listening for and honoring signals from your body to guide us along. I am an Accutonics (TM) Level I & II student, and enjoy incorporating sound healing tools into my sessions.  A session will typically include elements of Swedish, Deep tissue and Thai massage, and may include working with chakras and energy healing. I am simply here to give your body a nudge, a gentle reminder to let go of held tension, sore muscles, aches and pains and BE IN JOY!

I am a Port Townsend native and a graduate of the Port Townsend School of Massage. I have always been drawn to natural healing and pro-active health-care. I approach each session individually and intuitively, engaging my skills in Swedish Massage, deep tissue, and myofascial release, while incorporating some assisted stretching when needed/desired.  I believe massage plays an important role in one’s health and well being and look forward to working with you.




Summer Sondey:

The natural beauty of the Pacific North West drew me to Port Townsend from my home in Michigan. This space inspires me to pursue a holistic lifestyle and to help others in their own pursuit of wellness. I give an adaptive massage that blends my intuition and knowledge with your expectations to create the care you need. From relaxing Swedish to precise and intentional Deep Tissue work, I will address the areas you need the most focus on. I especially enjoy giving attention to common areas of tension in the back and working out excess energy from the feet, hands and scalp. I am joyful to be present and assist you with your self care!



ShannonShannon Ryan:

I have been immersed in the study and practice of the Healing Arts for over 15 years. I received my 700 hr massage training through The Santa Fe School of Massage in Santa Fe, NM, and have earned over 1000 additional hours in subtle bodywork education, including Cranial-Sacral Therapy. A Life-long practitioner and teacher of yoga, qigong, and meditation, I am deeply devoted to nurturing the awakening and emergence of core essence. I serve as a midwife of the Soul in my healing and teaching practice, as well as through my work with hospice as a comfort therapist. I specialize in subtle bodywork, energy medicine, and deep relaxation massage.




Ziggy Zsigmondovics:

Since my move from the Seattle area 3 years ago to attend the Port Townsend School of Massage, I have been inspired by all that the Peninsula has to offer. I have maintained a practice here and now specialize in pediatric therapy. My work at Soak focuses on the unique needs of each individual and a session will incorporate a variety of massage techniques based on those needs. I am particularly adept at specific neck, head and facial work. I tend to work specifically and intuitively listen to the patterns that your body holds with the intention to provide ease of movement and a sense of well-being. I am interested in the story of each client and am here as a support in your path to better health.



JenniferJennifer Benedict:

I am blessed to have found home by the Salish Sea at the foot of the majestic Olympic Mountains. I love to ease people’s pain and empower them in their healing. I enjoy easing anxiety and bringing balance in body, mind, and spirit. I am an intuitive energy worker and Reiki Master/Instructor trained in herbalism, aromatherapy, and Therapeutic Touch. I am graduate of Port Townsend School of Massage with additional training through Upledger Institute for Craniosacral Therapy. I provide Swedish and Deep Tissue Massage, Myofascial Release, Craniosacral Therapy, Reiki, and Chakra Balancing. I approach each massage with reverence and respect for the individual.



Kurt Hardesty:

I am a Seattle native who called the San Juan Islands home for 4 years before moving to Port Townsend. I studied at Cortiva School of Massage in Seattle and have a degree in Molecular Biology from UW. I have run several laps in the complex study of health, physiology, and the development of human potential. In massage, I like working intuitively at all depths. My touch is sensitive to Myofascial motility, Cranio-sacral, energy, and is especially tuned to that perfect pressure “hurts so good” Swedish style depth. Outside of massage I am an avid student of martial arts, dance, swimming, and perceptual development.
