Wabi Sabi Massage

Seijun Yanagida

Our massage Benefit:

Improved circulation & range of motion

Welcome to Wabi-Sabi Massage

 

My name is Seijun Yanagida.

My life has been spent helping others. Starting out, I offered that assistance working for JICA (the Japan International Cooperation Agency) an international-aid organization. Next, I worked in a business context as a translator and liaison. But after some time, I realized that I wanted to work on a more personal level, helping individuals. For the past 20 years I have been a massage therapist.

Massage is a time-honored method for promoting health and well-being. I am interested in bringing massage therapy to health-conscious people with an interest in an Eastern approach. My experience makes me perfectly suited to do this. I’ve worked on many types of people—athletes, people with physical limitations, senior citizens. I, myself, have been a runner and practitioner of qi gong and tai chi. And I am experienced with the process of aging. That’s why I chose to use the name Wabi-Sabi Massage Therapy. In Japanese culture the term Wabi-Sabi brings with it the sensibility of the beauty that comes with age.

 

Important benefits of massage include

•           Improved circulation

•           Improved range of motion

•           Pain reduction

•           Increased sense of vitality, well-being, and self-awareness

•           Stress reduction

•           Recovery support for overexertion
 

Please contact me for more information or to set up an appointment. I would be delighted to be your massage therapist.

Sincerely,

Seijun Yanagida

What is Wabi-Sabi

In traditional Japanese aesthetics, wabi-sabi (侘寂) is a world view centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection. The aesthetic is sometimes described as one of beauty that is "imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete". 

It is a concept derived from the Buddhist teaching of the three marks of existence (三法印, sanbōin), specifically impermanence (無常, mujō), suffering (苦, ku) and emptiness or absence of self-nature (空, kū).

Testimonials

Art R., Orinda, CA

I have known Seijun as a customer of my business for multiple decades and started getting massages from him regularly after hiring him to offer my other customers and friends massages at an anniversary party for the business. What a hit that was. I built a small exercise studio and Mr Yanagida stops by with his cheerful energy and lugs his special chair back there and performs miracles on my back and shoulders. Save yourself the expense of flying to Japan to seek restorative chair massage and either go see him at one of his public venues or discuss a private session, he is very trustworthy and comforting to have around.

Jaleh B., Oakland, CA

Seijun is hands-down the best masseuse I have ever been to. I am not sure how he transforms chair massage into a combination of joy, relaxation and wellness but he does. I've become so addicted to his work that hardly a week goes by before I need to see him again. In addition, he's as kind and sweet as they come. He's way better than others who are twice the price. Try him and you'll see what I mean! I believe he can be reached at bewell@mail.com

Katharine L., Oakland, CA

I am new to this blend of styles in massage but I get up feeling like the pure light of a radiant sun is pulsing through me. We are just getting started together at only three sessions now and this is the first time I've made room for this type of self-care on a regular basis. It's feels significant and I am struck by the dual feelings of calm trust and joyful enthusiasm I have about these sessions and going forward.

He is humble and masterful, intuitive and kind, generous and observant, incredibly compassionate and ego-less (as much as humans can be:) I feel totally seen and cared for. He is at Octagon Acupuncture now in a private room doing full table massage which I'm very grateful for!
