The Crew

Who We Are


Michael Abramski


I am the Owner and Certified Massage Therapist, working along side some amazing massage therapists here at Eventide Massage LLC.  I graduated form the Wellness Massage Center & Institute in St. Albans, VT, in November 2016.  My massage sessions draw upon a variety of modalities such as Deep Tissue Massage, Sports Massage, Swedish Massage, Shiatsu, Phenomenal Touch, to name a few.  Meeting new people and helping others through massage brings me a good deal of joy!  It would be a great privilege to meet with you and address the needs of your body, whether it be with Deep Tissue/Sports Massage, a relaxing Swedish Massage, or an integrated cupping session.

A little about me:  I have lived most of my life in Vermont, enjoying the beautiful outdoors.  After attending culinary arts school for four years, I enjoyed cooking professionally for fourteen years.  However, I felt it was time to open a new chapter in my life, and decided to pursue a career in massage therapy.  I am truly looking forward to my continued journey in this field!

Let's set aside traditional routine to target what truly needs to be addressed, and create a new standard for how the muscles can feel.  Static pressure and long slow strokes create the perfect sedating effect needed to allow the body and mind to heal itself, as during a restful night's sleep.

India Ross


I was born in Virgina, and moved back to my mothers home state of Maine at age four.  I had the pleasure of growing up on MDI with Acadia National park in my backyard.  I was trained in Massage Therapy at Seacoast Career School in 2020, which is now Harris School of Business located in Sanford Maine. Prior to getting my LMT license I traveled to Thailand in 2012 and trained at ITM in Chiang Mai, learning traditional northern Thai style massage.  Focusing on acupressure points with assisted stretching, Thai massage informs my approach to bodywork.  I am a trained Lactation Counselor and Birth Doula.  

I have always loved team sports, and continue to play volleyball year round.  My other hobbies include hiking, fiber arts and bread baking.
