Nicholas provided the MOST intense massage I've ever had; he is so very intuitive. Before starting, I noted sore shoulders and neck and then let Nicholas do his thing. He immediately found several tight spots and worked them out, encouraging me to breathe through different levels of pressure. He found some additional tension around my upper chest and asked if I would be comfortable with some work on this part of my body. I had NO IDEA how tight this area was and wow, it was such a huge release. Nicholas is willing to treat areas that may be uncomfortable for other masseuses to discuss/work on—like hips, abdomen and lower back near the butt. He definitely keeps the dialogue open to ensure clients are comfortable at all times. I'm so glad we got to get into these neglected areas. THANK YOU SO MUCH, NICHOLAS!
Nicholas brings a compassionate presence and a multi-disciplinary skill set to each massage. He builds a wholistic relationship with his clients that extends way beyond the actual message. Part of each session is a quick ‘check in’ to talk about changes and observations from the last session: this helps reinforce my daily somatic practice as I apply the suggestions and techniques he has provided over the course of our work together. I like to say he has X-ray hands as he works to find the current ‘hot spots’ in my body. I feel both privileged and blessed to be in such a dynamic, proactive relationship with a true healer.
The selfish part of me is hesitant to post this review because I'm afraid I won't get to see him as often if he gets too popular! :) But putting my selfishness aside..if you're in search of a phenomenal bodywork practitioner, then look no further! I suffer from chronic pain in both my neck and shoulders from having a desk job (and from poor posture) and recently got connected to Nicholas. I have tried many practitioners for deep tissue massages and can confidently say that he is the best there is! Nicholas is a talented, knowledgable, nurturing and intuitive individual. From the moment you step into his space you instinctively feel welcomed and at peace; not only is the environment soothing, but he also exudes a calming and gentle aura. What I appreciate most about Nicholas is his genuine commitment to making me feel better inside AND out; he values building a relationship with his clients and looks at you wholly. He's present, attentive and listens to your concerns patiently and compassionately. I always leave his sessions with my body feeling less tense and more fluid! His hands are a Godsend and he has such a warm personality--meet with him and you won't regret it!

About me

Born in Redwood City CA I grew up with an immense love of nature. Splashing in rivers and playing in the dirt inspired endless joy and wonder for me. I believe it was those experiences that sparked my love for body, mind, and spirit connection.

While exploring my passion for art in college I began to realize that while I was gaining technique in creative expression, I was lacking depth and connection in my physical and emotional life. I would spend long hours drawing and composing, often in my head, rarely heeding my body’s needs. From the food I ate to the exercise I practiced, the cigarettes I smoked, the insomnia I nurtured, I was shut off and disconnected.

I knew I was looking for change and just needed a little guidance. I took my first Tai Chi class and was introduced to slow, thoughtful movement, using breath as our guide. Learning how to ground into my legs and spine, I felt my body come alive. Inspired once more, I’d found a calling and purpose that felt true to the way I wanted to live. It was the beginning of my transition from cerebral dwelling to simply being present in my body. I left college and traveled up and down the west coast from Washington to California talking to and living with the homeless and mentally ill on the streets. I learned a great deal from their stories and my superficial experience of their world. It was painful, discouraging, and often extremely challenging. I felt myself and lack-there-of in an entirely new way, down to the bone, I was learning from this world.

More fortunate than those I met on the road I had a family to return to. I moved back home, got a job and found the World School of Massage and Holistic Healing Arts. The school was everything I was looking for and provided a holistic approach to healing that went far beyond the classroom. The World School taught me many tools of body work such as Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue, Lymphatic, CranioSacral, Structural Foot Balancing, and Vibration Healing Massage Therapy. I have combined these techniques with my background in music and art to create personalized sessions that listen to each individuals’ body and mind to discover the root of their needs. With empathy, love, and compassion, I am happy to co-create an environment in which I may help facilitate the reconnection that people need, to their natural self.

After my first experience with Rue I knew I had found a massage therapist that I was going to go to for a long time. To say that Rue is a great massage therapist is a huge understatement. His space of work is extremely cozy and warm which matches is demeanor. Plus, he spent time understanding my needs, and helped me set a powerful intention of healing before our time. Super grateful for Rue, and highly recommend him!
