About Me

My name is Adam DeVito (LMBT NC# 18956) and I have been working with the body for as long as I can remember. My journey began around the age of 7 when my next-door neighbor got a trampoline.  Although I may have been the poster child for “why moms worry,” the trampoline sparked a passion for movement that has yet to leave. It evolved into a competitive diving career that ended at the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, MA where I am the current record holder for both 1m and 3m diving.

I studied environmental science and pre-med but decided to take a break before committing to 5 more years of school. This gap year propelled me into the world of massage. I first got interested in massage out of necessity. A bike accident separated the acromioclavicular joint in my shoulder and left me in chronic pain at twenty-four years old. After working my way through the medical system with little improvement, I happened to meet an orthopedic massage therapist. To say he blew my mind would be an understatement. After one session I had both increased range of motion and decreased pain. I was hooked. I finally saw a way out of pain.

A few months later I was enrolled at the Bancroft School of Massage Therapy where I learned firsthand how to help manage and improve chronic pain conditions. I opened Sama in 2018 in Cambridge, Ma, and haven't looked back. In 2020, my wife and I relocated to Asheville, NC. I re-opened Sama that summer just south of downtown and have been working ever since.

I have furthered my clinical education by undertaking advanced training in orthopedic and rehabilitative massage through Whitney Lowe's Academy of Clinical Massage.

When I’m not massaging or teaching yoga, you can find me reading, baking, fermenting, or hiking in the beautiful blue ridge mountains with my family.
