"Adinah has a special ability to tap into one’s inner and outer body"
Adinah does not just treat symptoms, she finds problems, and solves them. She helped me understand that the body is a beautifully unique thing. Often, the problem is in a different part of the body than the symptoms. Adinah has a special ability to tap into one’s inner and outer body. She truly impacts the lives she touches by making us that much happier, and healthier through inner and outer body healing. Thank you Adinah for spreading your special gift and love with the world!
"I FEEL TALLER, PEACEFUL AND A WONDERFUL SERENITY WITHIN MY BODY."
"She did so well with my body I began referring my personal training clients to her"
Adinah has an amazing talent for being intense and gentle at the same time. She did so well with my body I began referring my personal training clients to her. Since then I have been able to see first hand the therapeutic effects that her methods have in terms of enhanced range of motion, strength and pain reduction. I am normally not comfortable with receiving a lot of bodywork, but I am glad that I made myself try a new type of self care. Well worth it!
I met with Dana today for a massage and it was in every essence of the word blissful. The atmosphere is calming and beautiful. The level of professionalism and care was first class. I came to the appointment with a tension headache and it had dissipated upon my departure. I feel taller, peaceful and a wonderful serenity within my body. I cannot wait until my next session. Thank you!

"wishing I'd booked a longer session!"
"I really enjoyed that when I got to my appointment with Adinah she took about five minutes to clarify with me why I was there, what things in my life were affecting my body, and how she could best help me. During the massage she patiently and gently worked out one ache, pain, and knot after another, about half of which I hadn't even been aware of going in. I left feeling taller, lighter, and wishing I'd booked a longer session!"
"Blessed by your holistic approach . . . an awesome resource"
How do I describe time with you?
Overall caring! I feel blessed by your holistic approach...helping me to relax through my massage and through life! I look forward to every visit. I know that your wisdom applies to all parts of my life...my relationship with Christ, my family, reducing my anxiety, giving my love to others and making boundaries, as well. Thank you for being an awesome resource! What a blessing you are!
"Wonderful support and treatment"
I went to Adinah at Lifelong Wellness Center for treatment of my shoulders, both of which underwent recent arthroscopic surgery to repair SLAP lesions. I had tried both acupuncture and chiropractic services but met with mixed results. I still suffered from pain in my shoulders when typing and in recreational activities such as rock climbing. The therapy that Adinah provided went hand-in-hand with my rehabilitation regimen to offer remarkable results in about two months time. My pain receded gradually and I became increasingly capable of returning to my former quality of life. In the sessions themselves Adinah took care to focus on my specific trouble spots and provided calm instructions for focusing on and dealing with the pain and tensions in my body. This sort of process was new to me, but I soon learned that part of restoring prior function is in learning to relax mentally as well as physically. Thanks Adinah for the wonderful support and treatment!

"I found tremendous value out of receiving Adinah's massage services. She is very talented, knowledgeable and professional. She has a holistic approach that really helped me use massage to actually assess and heal different parts of my body. I highly recommend her services."

"A treat for both body and mind"
Going to Lifelong Wellness Center has been both a treat for my body and my mind. When I first started going I had pain in my shoulder, my wrists, my hands and my surgically repaired knee. I really didn't know how much massage therapy could help, but I needed to try something because the pain was starting to affect my quality of life. The first thing Adinah had me do is explain where I had pain and then prioritize the importance. From there we started targeting the problem areas with a combination of massage and education. Each session would consist of her not only massaging me but also explaining how my muscles worked together and what I could do outside of the sessions to help reduce my level of pain. Within a few weeks I started to notice a great reduction in my pain, especially on a day to day basis. It's now been over 4 months since my first appointment and my wrists and hands are pain free and the frequency of pain in my shoulder and knee has been greatly reduced. On top of that, I'm now more in touch with how my body works and what I need to do to keep it in a healthy and happy state.
"helped me see self-care as a journey"
Adinah is an incredible massage therapist that changed how I view massage in general. She uses it as an instrument to help you with body-based issues, but also to tap into you as a person and help you with the overall “you.” She is a very talented massage therapist that was able to help with some long-term muscle issues I was having but also helped me see self-care as a journey and a process to a different type of happiness and freedom. I look forward to a long-term relationship with Adinah as a massage therapist, a wellness professional, but also as a friend and a fellow businessperson.
"You help me keep more in touch with my body"
We met just after I had returned from a 31-hour trip from Kathmandu to Portland, and my neck and shoulders were screaming for some attention. I was at Whole Foods for some basic supplies, and there you were, offering free head and neck massage! After my 15 minutes of attention ended way too soon, I made an appointment with you for the next week, and have been returning ever since. You always find the tight, tense spots, even if I forget to tell you where they are, and focus special attention on those places. Your massages are deep and therapeutic, not always comfortable when you find those aching spots or for a few days afterward, but ultimately helping me to be more in touch with my body, increasing my overall physical and (yes) mental ability. At the end of each session, you suggest stretches and exercises that help.
"I feel more relaxed, peaceful and productive"
I spend my days saturated in a stressful yet satisfying career. When I first started seeing Adinah, I was seeking stress relief. I also made a commitment to start taking better care of myself. I have benefited from Adinah's massage expertise for about a year. I never used to pay attention to my posture until I started seeing her. Now I am able to reduce tension in my back and neck because I am aware of my posture. Adinah has also taught me some stretches that benefit my muscles after a workout. Overall, when I receive treatments, I feel more relaxed, peaceful, and productive.
"She listened to my feedback and adapted accordingly"
I came to Adinah because I was experiencing an overall sense of stress that was causing me to sleep poorly. I was hoping massage could help and was lucky enough to meet Adinah. In our first few meetings, she helped reduce my stress, by finding the areas of my body that were most tight and distressed and then thoroughly working each area. My sleep improved, but I was hoping for more. Adinah moved on to improving my overall health. She worked at keeping my body limber and providing guidance on ways to avoid injury in exercise. Throughout her work, she has listened to my feedback and adapted her approach accordingly. I wholeheartedly recommend her!
"She's a healer"
Every once in a while you meet a person who excels in their profession, who raises the bar and becomes the one you compare everyone else to. Adinah is such a person. There are massage therapists and there is Adinah. She is a healer. She has helped our family with everything from knots and tight muscles due to stress to pain from overuse/sports injuries to my mom's recent fight against breast cancer in which massage really helped her deal with the side effects of treatment.

I've been getting massages for about 20 years now and as they have all been great, I have never had a more overall perfect experience than I have with Adinah. Her techniques are amazing and she is so in tune with my body, I always leave feeling absolute release and comfort. Not only is she a talented therapist, but her overall spirit is comforting and warm. I walk in knowing I am in good hands. I will NEVER go to anyone else. Thank you Adinah!
