Other passions include barking at the dogs next door through the window (but only when Nikki is on the phone), stealing edamame pods, chasing her tail, napping in the sunny spot in the office, and long walks.

Nicole graduated from the Cortiva Institute of Massage Therapy, Boston (formerly the Massage Therapy Institute) in July of 2011 with specialized training in Swedish, Myofascial Technique, Deep Tissue, Trigger Point/Neuromuscular Therapy, Integrative Injury work and Pre/Post Natal therapy. Since then she has studied and gotten certified in Ayurvedic massage techniques, Level 1 Craniosacral therapy and most recently became a Certified Reiki master, and is working on her teacher training.
While she is a firm believer that relaxation is the key to helping facilitate change in the body, she tailors each of her sessions specifically to what her client needs that day. Using a mix of Myofascial Release, Trigger Point Therapy and Passive Stretching, she works to break up adhesions in the connective tissue and increase range of motion, all the while keeping her clients in a calm relaxed state. This promotes healing throughout the body, increasing circulation and allowing the muscles to heal faster in order to help her clients function at peak physical performance.
Nicole truly believes that massage helps to restore, inspire and promote balance and well being not only in the body, but also the mind and soul. In her eyes education is key and she works to continuously educate her clients about their bodies and things that they can do, alongside massage, to promote health and well being.
