Adia Watts, LMT
Adia was born and raised in Queens, NY. She received her training from the Costa Rica School of Massage Therapy in Sámara, Costa Rica and has also completed a pregnancy massage CE course with New Jersey Massage LLC.
Adia always knew that she wanted to help people; in particular, she wanted to deliver babies. But she eventually learned how much schooling comes with being an obstetrician or a midwife, so the dream was deferred.
In 2019, after overcoming some health issues through complementary/alternative medicine and discovering a passion for doula work, Adia decided to attend massage therapy school as a way to round out her experience and come back to the dream she had so long ago: working with babies. However, this time around, the dream would include and encompass the needs of the parent.
By combining doula work and perinatal massage therapy, Adia supports clients’ physical and emotional needs so that they may focus on prioritizing their own health and wellbeing. Her approach to bodywork emphasizes safety, high-quality care, and bodily autonomy for clients during a time when so much within and around them is changing.
When Adia isn’t caring for clients at Life Stage Massage, she’s attempting to hit every restaurant in NYC or hanging out with her five-year-old Shih-Tzu, Simeon.
