I am also a Doctor of Physical Therapy with a degree from the University of California San Francisco/San Francisco State University. In addition, I have a background as a professional dancer, Pilates teacher, and yoga instructor. I am trained in a variety of massage modalities including Swedish, deep tissue, fascial release, prenatal, hot stone, Ashiatsu, Thai massage, and trigger point therapy.

I truly enjoy the healing art and science of massage therapy, and I am passionate about its potential to promote health and well-being.  Over the years, I’ve worked with a broad range of clients, including office workers, manual laborers, professional dancers, truck drivers, doctors, musicians, highly trained athletes, mothers-to-be, new mothers, and clients who are recovering from injuries or dealing with chronic pain. I strive to create sessions that are both therapeutic and relaxing. I look forward to working with you!Nikki Marini, Licensed Massage Therapist

Is there anything else you’d like to share about massage and how it fits into people’s lives?

We live in a very busy, demanding world. Most of us do not take enough time for self-care. Massage therapy can play a vital role in our health and wellness by down-regulating the sympathetic nervous system and promoting relaxation. Scientific evidence supports the beneficial effects of massage, meditation, and mindfulness. Our minds and bodies are closely linked. I believe that receiving regular massage is an important component of both physical and mental well-being.
