Introduction: The market in San Diego is saturated with entry-level massage therapists, which is fine if you're just looking to relax. If, however, you happen to have an injury or something specific to address then it is important to work with someone who has advanced training and plenty of experience. The difference between a Massage Therapist (MT) and a Holistic Health Practitioner (HHP) is that an HHP has at least twice as much education. If you are looking for anything other than a basic, superficial relaxation massage, I would highly recommend that you work with an HHP. What I love most about what I do is when people who have been experiencing pain, discomfort, or dysfunction (dis-ease) are able to find relief and regain ease in their bodies and lives. PLEASE NOTE: I offer ONLY legal, ethical, professional, health-oriented bodywork. If you’re looking for something else, look elsewhere.

Adria is a very knowledgable and gifted therapist. I would highly recommend her to others, particularly if you suffer from back/shoulder pain. In just a few sessions, I had noticeable improvement and she is well versed in a variety of different areas of massage and healing.

Adria is a natural, intuitive and outstanding healer and massage therapist. I highly recommend Adria for those who need light or deep level work due to surgery, or chronic pain or autoimmune disease. Adria will customize her healing work based on your individual needs. She listens to you and your body. I highly recommend Adria Ross!

Adria has been supporting me in staying healthy, strong, and comfortable for over 10 years now. She has helped me recover functionality, flexibility, and freedom from pain throughout life's misadventures, including chronic shoulder problems, A/C joint separation, shoulder surgery, knee surgery, a pinched nerve in my hip (ouch!), torn abdominal fascia, hand and arm pain from stenosis/bone spurs in my neck, peripheral neuropathy/circulatory problems, tight scalene muscles, vertigo, and (formerly, thank goodness) spending way too much stressed-out time working under deadlines on a computer (muscles were a mess). I'm sure there's more that I've forgotten. She also has supported me and kept me progressing through horseback riding, learning to play fiddle, my first 6 years of martial arts training (just earned my black belt!), and now strength training, too. I would be a wreck - or more to the point, not able to do these things - without her knowledgeable work. Adria uses a variety of modalities, depending on the problem. We've done Thai massage for tight hamstrings/lower-back pain, deep-tissue for knots and trigger points, and circulatory massage. The thing that most surprised and impressed me was cranio-sacral work. It looks and sounds like a load of hooey, and I'm pretty skeptical, but... I was in pain and losing functionality in my hands due to problems in my cervical (neck) spine. I had been doing PT, seeing an orthopedic doc, etc, but that wasn't helping much. In our first cranio-sacral session working on my neck Adria reduced the pain by 70%, and that pain never came back. I was freakin' amazed (and relieved)! It took a few more months (about 6-8 sessions) to fully relieve the symptoms. Now (as long as I'm not stupid about my posture, and don't sit at a desk for hours) I am pain-free and my hands are working fine. Fine! For years! Adria Ross is a highly competent, well-educated professional who can help you restore and maintain functionality so you can keep moving and doing whatever it is you love. Getting regular massages is not cheap, but it's far less expensive (and better for you) than progressively becoming inactive and letting your health fall apart. I highly recommend making massage a priority, and giving Adria a call.
