I grew up in Sonoma County, but moved to San Francisco in 2008 to work on music and continue my work serving adults with disabilities in the non profit world. While I loved that work, after 12 years in the field, I knew I needed a change which led me to exploring a career in massage therapy. I’ve alway known that I wanted to be in a line of work where I could help people. In 2015, I decided to put bodywork into personal practice. I graduated from the 900-hour program at National Holistic Institute - San Francisco campus in April of 2016 and after moving back to Sonoma County just a few months later, I headed directly into being a full-time massage therapist in my own private practice. I feel incredibly fulfilled doing bodywork, and the fantastic feedback from my clients has confirmed that I have chosen the right path. I'm excited to keep growing in my practice of helping people through the healing power of touch.
In my personal life, I love listening to and playing music. I love hiking, swimming, biking and spending every extra moment I have with my my amazing husband, two wonderful children and our incredible friends.
I look forward to meeting you and helping you achieve your bodywork goals.
"Excellent! I've had numerous massages with Nicole, focusing on a combination of Swedish and deep tissue massage to help release my chronic muscle tension in my neck, shoulders and back, and most recently to ease the ache in my right leg due to knee surgery a few months ago. Each of my massages have been amazing--Nicole has great energy and intuition, is highly skilled, professional, knowledgeable, listens carefully to my specific needs/troubled areas and addresses them with confidence. I strongly recommend her to anyone looking for a high quality, gifted massage therapist!"

"Nicole has a warm, friendly and attentive style. I loved the relaxed slow pace. The stretches for my lower back pain were especially nice."

"Nicole is answering a true calling! I've had expert massage for many decades and feel she is on her true path. She is a gifted healer and her future clients will feel blessed to know her."
-Rachel, San Francisco
I came to Nicole with a chronic shoulder injury, barley able to lift my arm. She approached my injury with a holistic approach. Not only did she work her healing magic physically, but she suggested things I could do for myself in the time between when I might visit her (stretches and healing topical treatments). I am happy to say that I have much more mobility today than I have had in years, and my pain is non-existent. She is kind and professional. You can tell that she is interested in healing her clients and ensuring they are receiving the care they need. I would highly recommend Nicole to anyone who seeks to improve their health and/or just needs a relaxing self care day!

"Niki is amazing. I highly recommend her! She was working knots out of me in areas I didn't even know were tight! She was very professional, polite, and considerate of my body's needs. She came to my home and did the massage right in my bedroom! It was great to not have to drive home at the end of the massage. I felt relaxed and rejuvenated after! My boyfriend even said I was like a whole new person!! Call her now!!"
-Jessie, Rohnert Park
"Nicole is truly a gifted massage therapist. She has a thorough knowledge of the body, intuitive contact and a beautiful rhythm around the table. I am enjoying my sessions with her and strongly recommend her to anyone looking for deep, therapeutic relaxation!"
