Malea Nicolet, LMT
Licensed Massage Therapist
Malea Nicolet, Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT), brings nearly a decade of health and wellness experience to PrivaMD. After completing her therapeutic massage certification at Baker College, Malea went on to deepen her understanding and application of clinical-focused massage in chiropractic settings.
Malea has worked with clients as young as 3 years old, and has worked in hospice care, with clients who are medically fragile and facing the end of life. Most commonly, she sees clients looking to gain a better understanding of their own wellness and stay out of pain. She holds all interactions as sacred, lending an intuitive knowing to clients’ sessions. Clients can expect to be treated with focused attention, detailed clinical understanding and compassionate carefulness.
In addition to therapeutic massage, Malea has taken additional training in the traditional healing modality of Arvigo abdominal massage. Arvigo abdominal massage aims to restore the “five systems of flow” (arterial, venous, respiratory, nerve and chi), as well as address any imbalance or malposition of the thoracic organs. Arvigo abdominal massage might be appropriate for clients seeking support for chronic digestive concerns, for clients with fertility challenges, menstrual dysfunction and pain, pelvic pain, chronic backpain and lumbar/sciatic issues, bladder issues and more (see www.arvigotherapy.com to learn more about this modality). Energetically and emotionally, abdominal massage can offer support for chronic shortness of breath (not medically-caused), anxiety, depression and fear/fight or flight adrenal issues. Many medical studies exist illustrating the role of the vagus nerve in day-to-day wellness. Abdominal massage can help restore relaxation and tone to the vagal system.
