Choose to enter my sanctuary of warmth, compassion, and professional therapeutic massage. Building strong relationships with my clients is highest on my list of values as a practitioner. This aspect of my practice allows me to stay tuned into to your mind, body, and spirit and provide you with the best massage therapy in Hickory, NC or Morganton, NC.
Whether you suffer from chronic pain, have sustained an injury, or just need to relax, massage therapy will benefit you. Massage is a natural and effective way to manage stress, reduce pain, speed up healing of soft tissue injuries, and improve quality of life when managing a long term illness like cancer.
I offer a massage experience that is guided by knowledge, intuition, and intention. I listen carefully to you before we begin our session, and continue to listen to you and your body throughout the massage session. Invoking relaxation within the body is central to my work. I use long gliding strokes, gentle rhythmic rocking, and encourage deep breathing to engage your parasympathetic nervous system. After your body has relaxed, and your tissues have softened, I explore the deeper layers of your muscle tissue and work to remove stored tension and dysfunction. I draw from an eclectic blend of massage methods including Swedish, Neuromuscular therapy, Trigger point therapy, Healing Touch Energy Therapies, Esalen and PNF (proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation) stretching. I have had great success in helping client's find relief from upper neck and back pain, low back pain, sciatica, and headaches. One of the many sources of joy in my career is being a certified Nurturing the Mother Pregnancy Massage Therapist by Claire Marie Miller Seminars. I am trained to offer safe and therapeutic massage for every stage of your pregnancy.
I am passionate about massage therapy and its many benefits! I love working with my clients to help them discover how regular massage sessions can improve their lives. Helping my clients learn to implement self-care strategies for themselves is one of my greatest joys. In addition to massage, I offer individualized stretching routines to target problematic muscle groups and recommendations for your at home relaxation practices.
If you are ready to transform your life and begin a healing journey that connects your mind, body, and spirit, I would love to work closely with you. In our massage sessions, we will create new muscle memory that allows you to feel more connected and tuned in to your body, have less pain, and feel more relaxed and rejuvenated in your day to day activities
I look forward to being a part of your journey to a healthier body, mind, & spirit!
In Peace & Health,
Nikki Terry, LMBT
