I am a Licensed Massage & Bodywork Therapist (NC #15253).

It would be a privilege to join you on your healing journey.

My name is Matt Adams.

My mission is to practice and support others in practicing authenticity, curiosity, and non-judgemental awareness. As a massage therapist, my goal is to provide support on the ever changing, and often challenging, path through life.

My training as a massage & bodywork therapist began at The Body Therapy Institute. In the same manner as my artistic background, I fell in love with uncommon modalities. After graduating from my diploma program and learning Classical Swedish  & Myofascial Massage (relaxation & deep tissue, respectively), I studied Bamboo-Fusion (relaxation work using warmed bamboo similarly to hot stones),  and Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy (deep tissue work where therapist uses feet to deliver long gliding strokes, using parallel bars above the tables for support) shortly after my graduation. I now primarily practice with the methodology of Sarga Bodywork (myofascial barefoot massage, using fabric attached to the table for support).

Here are testimonials from clients about their experiences of what it's like to be under my care as a bodyworker.

Along with the work I do as a bodyworker, I have been studying the sciences of Aromatherapy. If you would like to know more about my work in that realm, I would love to speak with you about it.

My personal background is largely in the arts. My first exposure was with visual arts which was quickly followed by music. As a musician, I play Bassoon, Oboe, and Clarinet. I fell in love with double reeds for their unique tone, as well as their being played by so few people.  I began dancing in my mid teens and realized that the balance of creativity, musicality, and physicality.

I look forward to joining you on your path of healing, and getting to know you along the way.
