Nikki heals through manipulating the body by kneading and rubbing with different techniques such as Swedish and Neuromuscular. She graduated from the Colorado School of Healing Arts 700 hour program. Here she studied Swedish, Deep Tissue, Neuromuscular, Prenatal and Sports. The Swedish is a very light touch massage with no deep pressure which mostly helps with relaxation. Deep Tissue is a step up from Swedish, it goes deeper into muscles with moderate/heavy pressure, as much as the client can endure. This rids the body of aches and pains. Neuromuscular is slow, deep, and focuses on specific areas of the body that are in pain which works the deeper muscles which is typically painful but extremely effective for muscular discomfort. Sports has a lot of stretching in order to prepare for sports events to prevent and heal injuries and cramping to create maximum performance.
The result of frequent massages is that chronic pain dissipates. Flexibility and stamina greatly improves throughout the entire body. Overall health also increases, stress is minimized, and depression also decreases; massage helps heal traumatic events in life that one hasn’t yet dealt with.
Nikki has always wanted to pursue massage ever since she was a toddler. She has “healing hands” that truly help her clients. Her belief is that if you want to be happier, more energized, and most of all, healthier, then you need to take control of your body, mind, and spirit. All is possible when you believe in it.

I am only just starting to learn different acupressure techniques, I have found it helpful for headaches and tension in the neck and shoulder area.
I have found chair massage to be easier with deep pressure. Or just a quick massage to focus on the back and neck.
Deep tissue helps relieve tension in muscles that aren't superficial and a lot of problematic areas.
This technique is usually done without lotion and really focuses on problematic areas by slowing down the strokes quite a bit and applying deep pressure.
I have found hot stones to help with clients who have a lot of tender muscles that cannot handle the deep pressure they usually can.
This massage really focuses on stretching techniques, as well as preparing athletes for there sport to help prevent injury pre-game, as well as after helping relaxing the muscles. This type of massage is not just for athletes it is for anyone.
Swedish is a very light touch massage. Really good for a person who just wants a relaxing massage. No injuries to fix and no tight muscles to work through.
I am still learning different Thai techniques. I had never heard of Thai massage and then had a therapist use Thai massage during a session, and decided I need to know this. I have been slowly studying Thai massage and Thai medicine. There is a lot to learn and will take time. This type of massage, especially when integrated with traditional massage techniques, is very healing.
I use this technique throughout different massages depending on if a client has a trigger point or not.
This is the same thing as a normal massage. The only difference being you are on your side instead of lying prone or supine. Different pressure is used and certain body parts cannot be worked, due to the fact that it can cause early labor.
Also known as Aromatherapy. These oils have been said to have different healing properties in them and can really assist with a lot of ailments, as well as muscle aches.
