Adam H. #

Senior Practitioner

Towards the end of the 2000’s I started getting a stabbing pain in the right side of my mid-back that would wake me up at night. After years of chronic headaches, back and wrist pain, anxiety and depression, it was the wake-up call that I needed to start taking care of myself. I quit smoking and drinking, started eating better, began meditating and practicing yoga everyday, and found support for my particular set of issues pertaining to my family of origin stuff. Hooray!

 

About a year into my healing journey of self-discovery, I noticed that there seemed to be a kinship between massage and yoga. Since I was loving my yoga practice and also looking for a career change, I wondered if I would like being a massage therapist. By the beginning of 2015 I began the 640 hour program at the Oregon School of Massage.

 

During the massage I will communicate with you about your goals and tailor the session to meet them as effectively and realistically as possible. In my sessions I tend to lead with Myofascial Release, which I feel is the most effective tool I have to free restrictions and increase range of motion, thereby reducing pain. My work tends to be slow and deliberate, which many people find to be soothing. I also use Deep Tissue techniques, and you can almost always expect to receive some relaxing Swedish massage; because massage should feel good!
