Myofascial Release (MFR) formed the basis of Nicolle’s treatment approach in 2000, when she studied extensively in Sedona, Arizona with MFR pioneer John Barnes. She also incorporates Muscle Energy Release, Craniosacral Therapy, Visceral Manipulation and MBF Development®, a system of rehabilitative exercises that improve alignment and mobility. Treatments are individualized, often moving from one technique to another, based on each person’s unique needs and concerns.
Nicolle graduated from the West Coast College of Massage Therapy in 1992 and opened the Oceanside Therapeutic Massage Clinic in 1994. In 2005 the clinic was renamed Oceanside Wellness Centre to more accurately reflect the range of therapies offered. After several years as a massage therapist, several courses of continuing education and some significant life experiences Nicolle’s approach to treatment is based on a marrying of professional information and the client’s own innate ability to heal.
Nicolle recognizes the importance of finding joy in day to day life regardless of what she is doing. It is about seeing an opportunity to grow in each moment and above all else staying light-hearted.
If this is your first appointment, booking for at least 60 minutes will allow enough time to thoroughly review your health history, design and deliver an appropriate treatment plan, and provide home care prescriptions.
