"For years I suffered with Interstitial Cystitis (IC) and all the doctors thought I was crazy! But Nikki's gentle techniques and mind/body awareness discussions really helped me see the bigger picture! I still get flare ups from time to time, especially when I am stressed, but it is nothing compared to what I was experiencing before! I have also re-discovered my love for dance (thanks to her as well) and I couldn't be happier!"
"I have been through a lot of S#@% in my life, battling and overcoming breast cancer, a severe car accident which had me in the hospital for 3 months with multiple surgeries. Because of all of that, I had constant abdominal pain with nausea and vomiting every morning as well as chronic diarrhea. All the doctors said that I should be lucky to be alive and that I should not focus on the physical issues. What?? Obviously they didn't understand that quality of life is more important than mere life itself! I am so happy I found Nikki! She understood my concerns and was willing to help me work with my body to heal as much as we could. I am surprised to say that I am better than I expected I'd ever be! I no longer have daily vomiting or diarrhea. I went from taking pain meds 4x/day to 2x/day, and I generally feel better all around. I continue to see her for "maintenance" and don't think I'll ever stop seeing her!"
"After I had my 2nd child, I had chronic pubic pain. I couldn't do yoga without feeling it, and sometimes it affected my ability to walk and carry my children. When I first met Nikki, she was completely honest with me and said, "Well, nothing is a guarantee, but let's see what we can do!" Not only did my pubic pain pretty much fully resolve, but she was also able to help me with ongoing shoulder and elbow pain. She really gets how everything is connected and treats accordingly."
"I was referred to Nikki for chronic constipation. I was lucky if I pooped once a week, and that was only if I loaded up on laxatives and stool softeners. Nikki was able to put her hands on my stomach and somehow feel that areas around my gut were tight. She did her visceral mobilization "voodoo magic" and now I am easily pooping almost daily! Plus, my stomach is not nearly as bloated as it used to be! I'm so grateful!"
"My doctor referred me to Nikki for horrible abdominal pain. It got so bad that I literally stopped eating, because eating made it worse. I had all kinds of tests done and nothing showed why I was having pain. So frustrating! I don't know what she did, but after my very first visit with her, my pain decreased by about 75%. It came back unfortunately, but after a few more visits, she not only "fixed" whatever was wrong in there, but spent a lot of quality time discussing posture, clothing, relaxation and diet. She really gets how everything is connected, not only in the body, but our relationship to life - our family, our jobs, our stress. She's like a one-stop-shop for everything! She's kind of like a psychologist-physical therapist."
"After I had my baby, I was struggling. I had a very long delivery with a lot of complications and I wasn't healing as quickly as I thought I should. Nikki helped me to understand that healing is not just a physical process, but a mental and emotional one too. She was patient and listened to me (and my body) and helped me heal as a person. Her knowledge of the body was incredible and I loved listening to her talk about the interconnectedness of everything. She really is a magic-worker! I think every single woman who has ever had a baby should go to her, at least once, for a pelvic assessment. It's amazing what I learned! I wish I had gone to her sooner!"
