Nicole Quintavalle, LMT
Licensed Massage Therapist (MA 39146) & Yoga and Wellness Practitioner (RY200)
I’m Nicole, a Holistic Massage Therapy practitioner. I believe in taking an individual treatment approach that goes beyond the physical. A holistic treatments include a client’s mental, emotional, and spiritual well being. I have a genuine passion for helping others.
I started on this path in 1995 by getting a Full Facialist License at the Boca Raton Institute. In 1998, I started practicing yoga and became attuned to Reiki Healing Energy which changed my life in countless positive ways. In 2002, I attended The Academy of the Healing Arts and graduated with a license in Massage Therapy. I expanded into the wellness field working at salons, day spas, resorts as well as chiropractic, physical therapy, and wellness centers in the Palm Beach area. I feel that I have a special gift for incorporating the healing energies of Reiki in all of my massage, body and skin care treatments. In 2008 I attended ITM in Chiang Mai Thailand where I studied Thai Massage and Herbal Therapy. In the East, Thai Massage is called the “lazy man’s yoga” because of the passive yoga stretches that are incorporated into the sessions, and performed on a mat with the client completely clothed. In 2009, I completed the 200 hour Yoga Alliance certification program with Yoga Fox in Delray Beach. Finishing the course in Costa Rica in September 2009, I taught my first class at the amazing Pura Vida Spa.
Now, I am offering private, yoga classes to the public and also “Thai-Yoga Massage” (a blend of yoga with traditional Thai massage). Helping people feel a relief from stress and tension, gain better flexibility and balance, and achieve a sense of relaxation and well being is the focus of my therapeutic massage, skin and body care, and yoga sessions.
