Nicola has been a Registered Massage Therapist since 1989. She offers Craniosacral Therapy guided by Osteopathic Techniques and Principles, Acupressure, and Manual Lymph Drainage for the head and neck. She is a Spiritual Director, a Trained Teacher of Mindful Self-Compassion, and a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner.
Nicola offers an approach that connects bodywork, contemplative awareness, and trauma-informed care. Her orientation with clients is to stay present to the spontaneous healing that is available in each moment, and to trust in each person's inner wisdom as we listen to the language of the body.
She regularly immerses herself in nature, finding calm, inspiration and support in the surprise sightings of insects, birds and animals, the delight of wildflowers and the deep presence of trees. Each year, she and her life partner Doug head to the North to explore in the canoe the wilderness of Quetico and the shores of Lake Superior.
Somatic Experiencing is available at the clinic in person or online.
