My name is Adam DeVito (LMBT NC# 18956). I have been working with the body for as long as I can remember. My journey began around the age of 7 when my next-door neighbor got a trampoline. Although I may have been the poster child for “why moms worry,” the trampoline sparked a passion for movement that has yet to leave. It evolved into a competitive diving career that ended at the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, MA where I am the current record holder for both 1m and 3m diving.
After college, I battled a series of physical ailments that ranged from rolled ankles to separated shoulders. These occurred due to poor posture, repetitive stress, and accidents sustained during daily life. In order to reclaim a sense of health and empowerment in my life and body, I began practicing yoga. In 2014 I became a certified 200-hour yoga teacher while traveling abroad in Cali, Colombia. I have been teaching ever since and have furthered my yoga education to include over 500-hours of training.
During these adventures, I had been dealing with a chronic injury in my shoulder that I just couldn't shake. Although both yoga and meditation helped to ease and relieve the pain, I needed something more. I decided to pursue a more direct approach to healing through massage therapy. After one session I had both an increased range of motion and decreased pain. I was hooked. A few months later I was enrolled at the Bancroft School of Massage Therapy where I learned firsthand how to help manage and improve chronic pain conditions. I am continually fascinated by the complexity and inter-connectivity of the human body and have yet to stop my education process. I am currently learning about clinical massage through Whitney Lowe's Clinical Massage Academy. When I’m not massaging or teaching yoga, you can find me rock climbing, hiking, reading, fermenting, baking, gardening, or drinking tea.
