Welcome, Adam Gray LMT
We at Health Harmonized are simply over the moon to welcome another wonderful massage therapist to our team.
Adam decided to pursue massage about 4 years ago from a chat he had with a homeless woman he shared his pizza with. He wasn’t sure about a real career path at the time, and she told him he had a healer’s energy and to check out Irene’s Myomassology Institute. He did and found he loved massage!
He is an avid reader and enjoys beatboxing and spinning fire poi! Before you ask, yes, I have let him know we’d like videos or photos of that spinning fire poi. It is super amazing to see.
When you come in and work with him, you can expect him to use a variety of techniques including Thai and Shiatsu which are two of his favorites. He is also another gifted energy worker!
Welcome, Adam! We are blessed to have you as part of our team.

What Is Massage Therapy
Massage therapy is the manipulation of the soft tissues of the body to assist in normalizing those tissues and consists of manual techniques that include applying fixed or movable pressure, holding, and/or causing movement of or to the body.
Who can benefit from massage therapy?
Almost everyone can benefit from massage therapy. We live in a society where touch is sorely lacking for many people, and we see the increased dis-ease this has caused. With that said, there are times when massage therapy may not be advisable.
Massage Therapy is contraindicated for anyone who has:
- A recent injury or broken bone (if the area can be avoided, massage is not contraindicated)
- During an active, infectious disease
- When you are nauseated
- For persons on kidney or liver drugs (please bring a release from your medical doctor if you would like massage and take any of these)
- For persons on certain other medications like painkillers, anticoagulants, anti-inflammatories, drugs that affect pain sensation, drugs that change the muscle tone, drugs that limit reflex actions, drugs that alter your personality, etc. (please bring a release form your medical doctor if you would like massage and take any of these)
