Greetings, my name is Adam.
My bodywork career began in 2005, learning massage at Esalen Institute. In 2007, I studied and received certification in Acupressure and Chinese Medicine at the Berkeley Acupressure Institute. In 2008, I moved to Kauai and received comprehensive training at The Pacific Center for Awareness and Bodywork in: Presence-Centered Structural Integration (an offshoot of traditional Rolfing). From 2009-11, I completed my BA in Somatic (body-centered) Psychology at Naropa University, in Boulder. I have accumulated 1,000 hours of clinical bodywork training from four accredited schools.
I have worked as a massage therapist at three Bay Area Locations: Zazen Wellness Collective in San Francisco, YogaKula in Berkeley, and Namaste Yoga in Grandlake. I am currently involved in a three-year certification program in the work of "Somatic Experiencing", which focuses on advanced techniques for resolving Trauma and Post-Traumatic Stress.
- Open, undistracted, collected Presence.
- The body, heart, and mind aligned and unified in the experience of meditation
- Therapeutic methods that center on the body for the promotion of physical health, emotional, and spiritual well-being.
- A collection of techniques for restoring health and balance to the entire person by working through the body.
"Synchronizing mind and body is not a concept or a random technique someone thought up for self improvement. It is a basic principle of how to be a human being, how to use your mind and your body together"
"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
