Nicolle Maloney , RMT
Nicolle Maloney has lived on Vancouver Island for most of her life, growing up and enjoying the rural beauty of the Cowichan Valley area. She made the move to Victoria with her growing family to pursue massage therapy as a career that can provide flexibility she needs raising little ones while experiencing the reward of helping people every day.
Nicolle graduated from West Coast College of Massage Therapy here in Victoria in 2015. Since graduating she has the pleasure of working as a mobile therapist in the lower Vancouver Island area while also having worked at Le Spa Sereine until its closure in October of 2016. From her experience at the spa, she was able to perfect her rhythmic flow along with other special touches to make each clients treatment gratifying. Nicolle’s most recent Continuing Education course was in the study of Lomi Lomi massage; strokes done with the hands and forearms which are often long and sweeping, resembling rolling waves traveling along the body in a rhythmic manner. Nicolle is able to take what she has learns and combines it with her therapeutic knowledge to create a rejuvenating treatment that puts focus on the client’s goals and needs both for the body and the mind. Nicolle tends to favour moderate to deeper pressure with active techniques while always working within the client’s pain tolerance. Due to her spa background however, she is also able to accommodate the lightest of touch for a more relaxing type treatment. She favours techniques such as Trigger Point Release, Myofascial Release Therapy and Tapotement (massage in which the body is tapped rhythmically with the finger tips, palms or sides of the hand; used to stimulate or relax muscle tissue depending on the length of time performed) but ultimately she uses the type of techniques that work best for each individual client. She has found that her style of treatment has had a great effect both physically and mentally aiding in her clients goals for optimal results.
Nicolle is described as pleasantly professional, a nurturer by nature and meticulous with a curious mind while providing a space where her clients can feel relaxed and accommodated.
In her spare time, she can be found raising her growing family, coaching her kids soccer teams and enjoying the many adventures that our beautiful planet has to offer.BOOK NOW
