Nicole believes true healing occurs when you are seen within the context of your physical, emotional, mental and social state of being. Nicole sees herself as a patient advocate, someone who will not only provide you with excellent treatments, but will also be your support as you maneuver through the health care system. Nicole believes that every person needs an advocate within health care and in the end will be much better for it. Everyone needs time and attention in order to thrive, and in order to understand the root cause of illness.
Nicole’s main passion in Acupuncture and East Asian medicine is the nuanced nature of it’s diagnostic system, which has been designed to pick up on the slight imbalances in the body that lead to illness.
Nicole blends acupuncture, botanical medicine, cupping, manual therapy, aroma acupoint therapy, and sound therapy into treatments depending on needs. She has a special interest in working with sound and has spent many years studying the effect of different notes upon the body. Nicole is always delighted to incorporate sound therapy into treatments and notices that treatments reach a new level of regenerative prowess when sound is incorporated. This therapy is especially effective for stress and anxiety relief. Nicole’s specialties are pain management, stress and anxiety relief, immune wellness (including a specialty in allergy care), reproductive health and digestive care.
