Sama (सम) Sanskrit: balance, harmony.
I use structural bodywork and movement education to support the healing of chronic pain, movement dysfunction, and acute injury. Let's find your balance. Take 10% off your first session.
After a bike accident left me with chronic shoulder pain, I dedicated my life to studying the modalities that helped me heal; structural bodywork, somatic movement, and meditation. I spent the last decade weeding out what works and what doesn't. I'm excited to share what I've learned with you. A 90-minute session is recommended if this is your first visit.

Conditions I work with.
Conditions range from general muscle tightness, anxiety, hypertension, or chronic pain. These have included whiplash injuries, rotator cuff injuries, chronic pain conditions, carpal tunnel syndrome, piriformis syndrome, trigger points, knots, headaches, and back pain. If you're unsure if your condition is something I can work with, please don’t hesitate to reach out here.
At Sama, my passion lies in easing pain and releasing restrictions. The modalities I employ are designed to help you recover from injuries, manage or eliminate your chronic pain, and reduce your stress. After years of living with chronic pain, I understand first hand its debilitating impact on your overall health and well-being. Let's bring you back to balance.
Deep Tissue: Deep tissue uses firm pressure to penetrate deeply into the bellies of your muscles to release long-standing knots, adhesions, and tension. This modality uses a small amount of creme to glide across your skin while affecting the deepest layers of muscle tissue.
Myofascial Release: MFR uses long, deep, sustained strokes to gently elongate and stretch the fascia, or connective tissue, that encases and infuses all of the muscles in your body. This modality uses little to no creme to restructure the fascia below your skin.
How we move can greatly enhance our posture, the end-range-of-motion of our joints, and our state of mind. In essence, the way you move can positively affect how you feel in daily life. It can halt, and in some cases reverse, the negative effects of aging. At Sama, my goal is to teach you to move in a way that positively effects your body and posture.

We've all heard it once or twice before. "You're stressed. You should meditate." If you don't know where to start, I feel you. After years of struggling with apps and techniques I've found what I like to call "meditation for normal people." Basically, I've cut through the bullshit so you don't have to.
Discover how to manage your mind
Regulate stress and anxiety
Make yourself more "stress-proof"
Improve your quality of sleep
Improve your concentration
Enhance your overall well-being
Live with a sense of joy and ease

The body work I’ve received from Adam over the last few months has been life altering. I came to him with several injuries to my shoulder and before the first massage was even finished I knew I’d be coming back. He has a unique ability to combine his knowledge of physiology with his intuition and is always listening. Adam helped me to turn a sharp corner with my rehab and I’m grateful. Can’t recommend him highly enough.
