Registered Massage Therapist (RMT)
Hi my name is Nici Carmichael. I have been a massage therapist since 2012. I grew up in the Yukon, and then lived in High Level for eight years before I moved to Olds in 2013. I am slowly making my way south. I am certified to provide the following treatments, Swedish Relaxation, Therapeutic, Deep Tissue and Jade Stone massage. I also work full time in the recreation field and I feel that massage fits well with this career path as I see them both apart of the Health and Wellness continuum and I enjoy seeing the benefits people receive by participating in both. Jade Stone Massage: Jade Stones can be heated or cooled and are placed on or under the body as well as used directly for massage. This combines the benefits of hydrotherapy and thermotherapy. When using stones, the therapist can work deep into the muscle tissue to release muscle tension and localized pain while minimizing the discomfort. Chilled stones provide just as powerful of a massage as heated stones, by soothing the worked muscles and reducing localized inflammation and pain. When using both heated and chilled stones together, it can create a feeling of a vascular flush to constrict and release blood vessels.
