About

Philosophy

  1. Balance - At Sama, I believe that function follows form. If your body is "out of whack" from injuries, surgeries, or poor movements patterns, it cannot perform its function. In order to live a pain-free life, you need to find balance throughout your system.

  2. Integration - Massage alone is not enough. Healthy habits, movement, and mindset are the other key ingredients to finding a balanced, pain-free body. The real magic occurs when you integrate what you learn in our sessions into your daily life.

  3. Consistency - If you want to see results, a commitment to regular sessions is essential. That being said, my goal is to get you to the point where you don’t have to come back into my office. Let's get you back to balance so you can get back to living your life.

About Me

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.

Throughout this time, I had been dealing with a chronic injury in my shoulder.  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 opened Sama in 2018 in Cambridge, Ma, and haven't looked back. To deepen my understanding of both anatomy and pathology, I am currently studying 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.
