Nikole has been a licensed massage therapist for over 13 years, she has focused the last 7 years on the study of abdominal massage; especially in relation to women’s reproductive issues, intestinal disruptions and how it affects emotional health. Nikole's intention is to create a relationship with the women of her community where they can safely turn when life throws its most challenging lessons. Knowing there is a source of support and understanding is crucial during these times and finding ways to impart self-care techniques can put a woman at ease, as well as empower her to bring her well-being into her own hands.
Although Nikole spends a great deal of her time in research studying physiology, she relies on her intuition to guide her bodywork, allowing her senses to read the responsiveness of clients and adjusting accordingly. Some of her most influential modalities are Hawaiian Mana Lomi, Myofascial Release, Cupping Therapy, Craniosacral Therapy, Dynamic Energy Healing, and Thai/Shiatsu techniques; she is steadily working to evolve her bodywork sessions.
Nikole is a massage instructor at Laurel Business Institute, who hopes to impart creativity and professionalism to the future practitioners of her field. Some of her favorite things are kayaking, hiking for forage, and yoga to keep her mind and body in balance. After practicing yoga privately for over 18 years, she is now taking her very first yoga teacher training workshop with International author Danielle Dulsky, "Women Most Wild".
"Throughout my life ritual has kept me grounded and creative; I love everything wild and witchy, dark or light. To me, accepting the circle of life is the most important thing we can do for ourselves; in pain and in joy - all is growth."
Thank you so much Nikole! The abdominal and sacral work was really helpful. As another massage therapist, I greatly appreciate the focused work and compassionate attention. Definitely coming back more regularly! - Renee
