Kimberly Adami LCMT, NCTMB
Ricia Fleming Ph.D., NCTMB
A long winding life path brought me to where I'm offering you massage today. It began in the ivory tower of Boston University where I taught writing and literature.
As an English professor and then as psychotherapist, before massage changed my life and drew me to massage school, I learned to pay close attention to people and the stories they told. And so today I pay close attention to you and your story during a bodywork session.
It was a blessing to be working at the pain treatment program when the nurses were taught to give Swedish massage to the patients. With my own eyes I saw how the massages helped people manage pain and lessen discomfort.
And the benefits of massage were demonstrated to me first hand as my own troubles melted away under my nurse friends' hands.
I admired the work of my muscular therapists, and developed a desire to do the work myself.
After working with body wisdom as a body/mind psychotherapist for over 25 years, in 2001 I added hands-on healing through direct touch to my repertoire with Reiki training. Finally I gathered my courage and faith, took the leap and enrolled at Palmer Institute of Bodywork and Massage in Salem MA.
After some serious episodes of dizziness, I was fortunate to be helped by a skilled occupational therapist who diagnosed me with Sensory Processing Disorder and used a therapeutic modality to bring me from vertigo back into balance and gravitational security—Upledger CranioSacral Therapy and SomatoEmotional Release. I know from the inside what sensory processing disorder feels like and what the experience of developing sensory processing skills feels like. I've been on that road. I know the terrain and the experience of traveling it.
And Now I'm here as a Massage Therapist to Help You
I went on to complete a 900 hour curriculum in Advanced Massage Therapy at the Palmer Institute of Massage and Bodywork in Salem MA.
Now I am a Licensed Massage Therapist in Massachusetts and a member of ABMP: Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals. I am also a member of the New England Society for the Treatment of Trauma and Dissociation.
I love the work and have received many "ah..."s from people on my table; and I plan to continue helping people to heal, to relax, and to promote their well being through therapeutic massage
We'll work together to find just the right mix for your greater relaxation, health and transformation.
