My name is Adam Baraz, founder of Samadhi Bodywork.
Samadhi Bodywork is an integrative mind-body massage. This method invokes profound relaxation through deep synchronization of body, heart, and mind. Samadhi weaves together elements of Swedish/ Deep Tissue Massage, Myofacial Release, Somatic-Experiencing (SE), Cranial-Sacral Therapy, and guided meditation.
"Samadhi" is a Sanskrit word which, essentially means, "the experience of deep meditation". In the Samadhi method, bodywork is a vehicle for opening into meditative-awareness. As we contact the deep inner space of our being, what organically emerges is creative inspiration, authentic presence, and our unique vision for truly meaningful life.
Through dissolving the tension patterns, limiting beliefs, and emotional holding in your muscles, bones, and nervous system: Your entire life will improve.
The purpose of Samadhi Bodywork is to: activate, awaken, and integrate your human potential, so you can bring your unique gifts FULLY into the world.
I have practiced bodywork professionally for nearly a decade and have accumulated more than 1,000 hours of clinical training in massage and bodywork. I have undertaken extensive professional training in counseling psychology, and Somatic-Experiencing Trauma Therapy. In 2011, I received my BA degree in Somatic Psychology from Naropa University.
I began practicing meditation at an early age. My father, James Baraz, is a founding teacher of Spirit Rock Meditation center. Since 2006, I have been a dedicated practitioner of Tibetan Dzogchen and Mahamudra meditation, studying closely with the Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche (www.gomdeusa.org), and my primary spiritual teacher, Dr. Reggie Ray (www.dharmaocean.org). I have spent a total of ten months practicing in intensive retreat.
Samadhi Bodywork is inspired by and adapted from the profound embodiment teachings of Tibetan Inner-Yoga and meditation. These practices, which I impart to dedicated clients, are unique in their efficacy to rapidly unlock and awaken the innate well-being, clarity, and inner wisdom of the human body.
If you are ready to transform your body, activate your life-force energy, and embody your deep human potential, I would be honored to support you in the journey of healing and awakening.

"He uses the perfect amount of knowledge and intuition..."
"I am a full time bodyworker. I use my body constantly. Often it is challenging for me to find someone that does the multifaceted work I need. I find his work extremely helpful. He uses the perfect amount of knowledge and intuition. I find sessions with him to be deeply healing on multiple levels. I enjoy the depth of the soft tissue work as well as the breath and energy work. Adam is the real deal and everyone could benefit from working with him. I highly recommend him." - Erika Campbell
