Donna Adair  LMBT; OT 

Graduate of the Medical Arts School NCLMBT (North Carolina Licensed Massage & Bodywork Therapist) since 2017 working with an emphasis in Medical Massage & Orthopedic conditions

Received Her Associate's Degree in Occupational Therapy Assistance in 1995, and her COTA/L (Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant) License by NCBOT (North Carolina Board of Occupational Therapy) in 1995.  As a conventional therapist, Donna has successfully completed over 600 hours of “advanced” continuing education.

DBT is an evidence-informed practice,  relying on clinical reasoning, a complex cognitive process that involves using knowledge and skill to assess and treat a client’s neuromusculoskeletal condition. It involves clinical experience, the use of reliable research, and understanding how a client perceives and interprets pain.

Donna has worked with hundreds of patients, helping to design and execute treatments for clients with various orthopedic diagnoses, cerebrovascular accident (CVA), amputations, and varied neurological conditions, her focus being function.

For nearly 30 years, Donna has developed highly specialized skills in helping many people find relief from pain and dysfunction. Advanced Bodywork was a natural progression for Donna combining knowledge of functional task analysis/performance, biomechanical modalities, Craniosacral and Visceral work to successfully relieve pain and enabling more normal movement patterns. 

DBT brings a rich and seasoned approach to each therapy session, combining her history, experience and knowledge from real life rehab to provide Advanced Bodywork to clients. Recognizing that every person has unique challenges and preferences, Donna employs the ability to hone into each person's particular needs, and understand that wellness is a process best achieved through collaboration, education, goal setting, facilitation, and treatment planning.
