I have lived in Sonoma County for the majority of my life. I moved to San Francisco, where I received my massage training, in 2008 and moved back to this beautiful area in 2016. I love music, and have sang in a number of bands throughout my adult life. I love hiking, swimming and spending every extra moment I have with my friends, family and my amazing fiance. I spent a combined 12 years working in social services, serving adults with disabilities. While I loved that work I knew a few years ago that I needed a change. I've always known that I wanted to be in a job where I felt I could help people and better the lives of those I met, so massage was a perfect transition and I could not have found a better suited profession.
For many years, I was an enthusiastic recipient of bodywork. I got my first massage when I was 17 and was instantly hooked. It not only eased my muscle tension and stress, but it realigned my whole being.
In 2015, I decided to put bodywork into personal practice so I could help others heal and come into balance as well. I graduated from the 900-hour program at National Holistic Institute San Francisco campus in April of 2016 and headed straight into being a full-time massage therapist. I worked at a busy spa here in Santa Rosa initially, where I gained a lot of experience however wanted to be in a position where I could cultivate better relationships with clients to fully understand what their bodies needed. My specialty is relaxing and therapeutic swedish, although I am highly skilled in other modalities as well. I enjoy connecting with my clients on a deeper more energetic level, that I feel my relaxing and rhythmic style allows.
I feel incredibly fulfilled doing bodywork, and the fantastic feedback from clients has confirmed that I chose the right path. I'm excited to keep growing in my practice of helping people through the healing power of touch.
"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."
-John S, San Francisco
"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!"
