Adam has been interested in health and wellness for as long as he can remember. After studying pre-medical at Holy Cross, he realized his passions were pulling him in a different direction. The lack of connection he witnessed in students’ work/life balance caused him to abandon medicine and pursue a new idea. He was determined to carve out a career where he could help others achieve a sense of balance in their lives. In 2014 he became a certified 200-hour yoga teacher while traveling abroad in Cali, Colombia. He has been teaching ever since, and has furthered his yoga education to include over 500 hours of training. In conjunction with yoga, Adam has been studying meditation since 2012. He has practiced and studied Mindfulness Meditation, Vipassana, and most recently Transcendental Meditation. He has found the power behind these simple practices to be truly breathtaking.
Amidst all these studies Adam was also dealing with a chronic pain injury in his shoulder. Although yoga and meditation helped to ease and relieve the pain, he decided to pursue a more direct approach to healing through massage therapy. After having tremendous results, he decided to attend the Bancroft School of Massage Therapy where he learned firsthand how to help manage and heal chronic pain conditions. He learned a variety of techniques, including Swedish, deep tissue, and sports massage. He hopes to continue his studies with neuromuscular and orthopedic specializations in the very near future.
Outside the massage space Adam can be found hiking, rock-climbing, practicing yoga, gardening, reading, fermenting, or tending his bees.
