Nicole Mackay, RMT

Nicole has a deep and heart-focused passion for helping others improve their lives both physically and mentally through holistic massage and wellness programs.

Nicole’s journey into mind-body wellness started in her early 20’s when she became very interested in and began studying Chinese medicine. This motivated her to work in the field of holistic medicine and more specifically massage therapy. She graduated from the Massage Therapy Program at Grant Macewan University in 2006. She practiced for 10 years as an RMT in Edmonton, Alberta. Upon returning to her hometown of Nanaimo, BC she wrote and successfully passed the BC board exams. 

Nicole was sought after in Edmonton for her deep tissue and sports massage but her experience covers a broad spectrum from minor injuries to chronic pain and disease. As well she really enjoys pregnancy massage.  

Nicole lives a very active lifestyle and you can often see her at Westwood Lake running or playing on the beach with her two daughters.
