Relieving Back Pain, Headaches and Anxiety

I work a little differently than most massage therapists. When you come see me, of course you will get a great massage that is targeted on your problem area(s).  However, your massage will be customized to what you need that day.  I work with you to actually solve your problem, and then continue to work with you to maintain your optimum health.

I work a little differently than most massage therapists. When you come see me, of course you will get a great massage that is targeted on your problem area(s).  However, your massage will be customized to what you need that day.  I work with you to actually solve your problem, and then continue to work with you to maintain your optimum health.

I schedule my appointments so I have time to listen to you, and to what your body is telling me. The body can’t be forced to open or relax; it is like an onion with many layers. Each layer of tissue has to be opened up so that the next layer can be reached. If your issue is in a deep layer, it will take some time for the body to allow full access.  An example of this is when a therapist keeps “digging” to get into those knots but the client does not get relief.  The client may insist that he or she needs deep tissue, but in reality, the body was not ready for “digging” and other techniques need to be used.  Most therapists aren’t trained in these other effective techniques and the public hasn’t heard of these techniques.

Becoming a massage therapist was never in my original plan. I graduated from Cornell University with a degree in Russian Language and Soviet Studies with plans to make the Air Force a career. After a few years of active duty military service, I transferred to the Air Force Reserves and began working as a management consultant. I loved horses and wanted a “horsey” job. I learned about the field of equine massage (yes, there is such a thing). The equine massage school I initially wanted to attend required students to be either vets, chiropractors, or massage therapists. I decided my best option was to become a human massage therapist.

Once I started massage therapy school, I realized how much I loved doing human massage! I graduated from AKS Massage School in Herndon, VA, in Nov. 2002. Initially, I was trained in Swedish/deep tissue work, but then continued to get training in advanced massage therapy techniques including Reiki, Cranial Sacral Therapy, Deep Tissue, Sports Massage, Bowen and more (including equine massage). In March 2003, I started practicing as a licensed massage therapist in northern Virginia. I had my own private clients and also worked part time at the Army Navy County Club. 

I personally experienced how healing Reiki treatments can be when I broke both of my arms in the middle of massage school! I was my own test case for does it “work?” I healed very quickly, was back to doing full body massages, and graduated on time from massage school. I completed my training as a Reiki Master in 2004. 

I relocated to the Huntsville, AL, area in 2008. I ran my massage practice part time while working full time as a management consultant. In March 2014, I opened a permanent location in Huntsville for Bodywork for Healing. 

I live on a small farm with horses, chickens and cats; I am a Christian.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork or Counseling services

by Anne on Sep 23
Nadine was wonderful in addressing my specific need for a combination of massage and Reiki. Felt better immediately!
by Tyler on Sep 19
I've been in a total state of relaxation since my last Reike. Nadine has dedicated herself to learning about the human body and how it works on all levels. Her results show complement her knowledge, skill, and experience.
by Patricia on Aug 18
Nadine is incredibly talented, and such a wonderful and friendly person. I left feeling like a new woman!
by Patty on Aug 15
I was so relaxed I fell deep asleep. I could actually feel the energy passing through my body. The thunderstorm outside was a bonus. Nadine is a very professional person and also makes you feel very comfortable. I didn't have any crying episodes afterwards but it had been a stressful day already and the calmness I felt when leaving her office was so much better than when I went in. I would recommend Nadine always.
by Linda on Aug 14
I liked the information sharing about what to expect from the session, Nadine made me feel very comfortable and ensured all questions were answered before she began the session. The session was an amazingly enlightening experience for me. Im still not sure exactly how the energy exchange transpires but it was truly rejuvenating.
by Bobby on Aug 11
Nadine is very knowledgeable and an exceptional massage therapist. I strongly recommend her and her skill set.
by Janice on Aug 09

Nadine does an excellent massage and regularly checks to make sure the depth of the massage comfortable for me.
by Anonymous on Jun 01
I thought Nadine gave me a great deal of time and energy and that she understood what I needed.
by Lynn on May 21
I had no idea of what Reiki would be like. Nadine explained the process, made me feel safe and comfortable with the new experience, and talked me through the experience afterward. It really is a "personal experience" because I imagine everyone would have different response because Nadine responded to what my body was telling her. Going back for more!
