Meet Adria Burton

Massage Therapist

Adria Burton, Lakewood Massage Therapist

Adria Burton

Adria was born and raised in Lakewood CA, where she still resides. She has always been intrigued by anatomy and physiology and the body’s amazing ability to adapt and heal itself.

Adria graduated from Lakewood High School and went on to study Exercise Physiology at UC Irvine and participated in studies at The Cooper Institute of Aerobic Research in Dallas Texas. She has always gravitated to occupations that allowed her to engage and develop her understanding of the human body and its relationship with movement.

Adria is a 4th degree Black belt in Shaolin Kenpo Karate. She began training in Shaolin Kenpo at age 10 began teaching at age 13 . She began training in Krav Maga in 1998 and was recruited into the teaching program. After owning and operating her own training center for nearly 12 years, an injury forced her into retirement. She once again felt the pull back toward education and became a Diagnostic Medical Sonographer but she did not feel it was her calling. Adria was inspired to attend massage school after seeing the positive impact massage therapy had on her mother who suffers from Fibromyalgia and is a cancer survivor.

She received her massage training from Healing Hands School of Holistic Health. After nearly 3 years in practice, she is still passionate about massage and what it can offer. She also loves working with hot stones in service, appreciating their grounding influence in a treatment.

She values holding space, educating the client about their body, and careful listening to achieve the goals of each individual. She fuses clinically based, deep tissue, and myofascial techniques to both calm and relax. Adding stretching, movement, and kneading to provide a restorative, therapeutic treatment that aids in the body’s natural healing process and re-connect the person as a whole.
