Born to a family of artists, Nadia originally was on a similar path. She received her BFA in Photography from Ringling College of Art in 2011. And shortly after went down the Health and Wellness road, venturing into Yoga and Crossfit. These days, she's creating a new lane, exploring ways of combining her creative side with her healing side.
After college she went through trainings to become a Yoga instructor and a Crossfit coach. During that time she also managed and tended bar, but the idea of doing that 10 years later wasn't fulfilling and she wanted to do more!
Nadia has always had a desire to help people, and for a while wasn't sure how her way to do that was... until she enrolled in the Massage Therapy program at Wake Tech.
At the start of the program she had the expectation of working with athletes - due to her background. But as the weeks and months went by she learned new techniques and modalities, and the variety of people and issues she could help through touch kept growing.
Nadia has been a licensed Massage and Bodywork therapist in North Carolina since 2019. She is constantly learning new ways to enhance her practice to be able to provide the best massage for each individual. She takes pride in listening to what her clients need to ensure they leave feeling complete. She also takes pride in her meditation practice which allows her sessions to be led by intuition as well.
While she does primarily works with athletes, she believes everyone regardless of their daily activities and lifestyle would benefit from therapeutic touch.
Her goal is for people to feel safe when they come in to her space, release tension in their body and mind through therapeutic touch and energy work, and leave feeling connected to their truest self so they can go out and live their best life.
Nadia is constantly striving for a joyful life by doing a variety of things to cultivate happiness and hopes to spread that joy to others. She incorporates Reiki (universal life force energy) into her massage sessions, her pottery, and her jewelry - or whatever else she might be doing. She believes infusing Reiki energy into the things she creates will benefit whoever ends up using/wearing the pieces.
Nadia's wish is to be able to help as many people feel better, move better, and generally live their life better through therapeutic touch and energy work!
When I was considering my next step in life, I was doing Crossfit. I got my first muscle up right after my massage therapist friend rubbed my arm. And that moment was when I knew I could help people through therapeutic touch and confirmed my desire to join the massage therapy program.
My goal is to help you!
Whether you need to take some time for yourself and "just relax" or you've found yourself with some discomfort or pain. I incorporate a variety of techniques and modalities that will help you feel better, move better, and live your best life!
I understand that while we may have many similarities every one is different. What works for one person may not work for another.
I want to be a support for you to be able to do what brings you joy!
I spend part of my free time making Reiki infused pottery, bracelets and malas when I'm not learning more massagey things or spending time in meditation with my cats.
