Samantha Ibarguen is a Brennan Healing Science Practitioner and a graduate of the Barbara Brennan School of Healing, a rigorous four-year institution that trains practitioners to work with all aspects of the human energy-consciousness system. She holds a B.A. in Political Science from Amherst College.
Samantha is an ten-year veteran of transformation and personal process work. In addition to Brennan Healing Science, she uses sound healing, channeling, and aspects of core energetics and shamanism in her practice. Most recently, she studied PsychoEnergetics in Spain with Michael Mervosh and Irene Tobler, in which she deepened her training in personal process work as well as “awakening the interior lives of individuals.”
Prior to opening her practice, she worked on Wall Street for a decade. As a veteran of corporate America, her passion is to make the healing arts available to professionals. She knows first hand the daily stress of the work environment, as well as how this stress can physically manifest in the body as pain, insomnia, or mental and emotional fatigue. Her intention for her clients is that they are inspired by their lives, and live in passionate creation of their own reality.
Samantha holds a CranioSacral Therapy I certificate from the Upledger Institute. CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle healing modality in which the practitioner evaluates the craniosacral system, and then follows the body’s own cues to aid it in releasing physical restrictions. The craniosacral system consists of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that encompass and protect the spinal chord and brain, as well as the attached bones, the sacrum and the cranium. Recipients of CST report physical relief from the feeling of ‘unwinding’ in the body, as the body responds to CST and re-establishes structural balance.
Samantha is also a non-denominational Ordained Minister, and is a licensed Marriage Officiant in the state of New York. She is available to officiate weddings, and considers it a great honor and joy to create and hold a blessed and loving space to facilitate the union of a couple.
Samantha Ibarguen is one of those rare, naturally gifted healers. Because of her myriad, comprehensive trainings, combined with her experience in the corporate world, Sam is sure to be the bridge between. Thus, I believe she is on the cutting edge of a new methodology.
Her leadership and profound empathetic approach, while offering a new skill set (by educating those challenged by intense schedules as they strive for excellence), will help people solely, as well as enhance their role as part of a team to rise to new possibilities in a changing environment. Those changes require a gifted healing therapist like Sam. I am honored to know she is here to help us in these times.
