Nicole graduated from the Cortiva Institute of Massage Therapy, Boston (formerly the Massage Therapy Institute) 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, Level 1 Esoteric Healing, and is a certified Reiki Master, currently interning to become a teacher.
Nicole is a firm believer that relaxation is the key to helping facilitate change in the body and  tailors each of her sessions specifically to what her client needs that day.  Using a mix of modalities, 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.

Beth is certified as a Hypnotherapist by the National Guild of Hypnotists. She also holds advanced certificates in Hypnosis, Past Life Regression and Pediatric Hypnosis and is also an EFT Practitioner (Emotional Freedom Techniques). EFT is a fast, safe and very effective process that draws it's power from both time-honored Eastern discoveries that have been around for over 5,000 years, as well as Albert Einstein's theory that everything (including your body) is composed of energy. The EFT system is based on the statement that "The Cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body's energy system". It involves gently tapping on acupressure points and can literally be applied to just about everything. It is a "tool" that you will walk out with and it will allow you the opportunity to truly change your life. Beth skillfully combines both of these beautiful healing modalities, which work on the subconscious part of your mind and the limiting belief systems within you. The subconscious mind is used anywhere from 75% - 95% of the time and is where we store our emotions, habits and beliefs. The subconscious is the area of your mind, that I believe, one must access to see true and permanent change. Come and learn how your mind works, why self sabotage is a real thing and why it is not your fault that you haven't been able to achieve the success you have been looking for. You will leave with knowledge and "tools" that will literally allow you to change and heal all areas of your life. For information on EFT - please go to www..emofree.com
