Still wondering .... don't just take our word for it read our testimonials:


Somatherapy offered instructors that give 100% of themselves. I was pleased with the class choices and schedule flexibility. I was also glad to make monthly payments as I took the program. With hard work and dedication all things are possible. I want to dedicate my achievement to my grandfather, Guadalupe P. Sanchez.

I have really enjoyed the energy classes at Somatherapy! Experiencing powerful energy work along with meeting wonderful like-minded people and all expertly guided by the amazing Kathleen Shyptycki. Polarity Therapy class has provided all I hoped for and so much more!

Nicki Coleman - Graduate July 2015

I chose Somatherapy because my mother went to the school in the 1990s and my brother in 2002. So I knew it had a great reputation. Everyone was really friendly. If I had a question, I felt comfortable asking it.  The instructors worked hard to make sure everyone understood the course work. I finished the whole CMT program in just 9 months. I use my CMT to work weekends and with my own personal clientele. I am glad I came to the school because now I can work anywhere in California. It’s a great business and I meet a lot of good people.
