This modality focuses on alleviating pain by increasing circulation to relax muscle spasms and targeted work to defuse trigger points. Nick also specializes in deep tissue, clinical, prenatal, cupping, and sports massage. He works with a wide variety of clients of all ages and helps them to identify patterns in their daily life that may be contributing to their discomfort. Nick works with clients with specific medical conditions such as sciatica and low back pain, clients with muscle imbalances in the body caused by repetitive stress or compensation, as well as athletes who come to recover and maintain their bodies so they can compete and perform at their best. In August of 2020, he decided to open his own office with Jen from Viso Bello and the Body Mechanics concept was born.
