BIOGRAPHY

Upon graduating as an Aromatherapist in 1999, Nicola McGill started her own Aromatherapy practice in Brentwood, England. It was here that she focused on supporting women with Aromatherapy during their Pregnancy, using aromatherapy as a supporting modality during each semester, labor and post natal recovery. She had the privilege of being able to be at the births of many children whilst using aromatherapy to support the mothers.

In 2003 she relocated to Bonita Springs in Florida where she continued with her work in private practice working with people looking to support their health and wellbeing on a Holistic Level.

In August 2006, she moved to Boulder, Colorado and continued her work at the Whole Health Wellness Center.

In May 2008, Nicola was and still is employed by Boulder Community Hospital as a part time Oncology Massage Therapist at their Center for Integrative Care, located in the Tebo Family Medical Pavilion, which is home to Rocky Mountain Cancer Center. Here she is able to support oncology patients on an inpatient and outpatient setting, with gentle massage techniques, reflex touch, lymphedema management and breast cancer rehabilitation. She works alongside other members of the centers team of complementary care practitioners, which also includes a Breast Health Navigator, to provide support and gentle healing to Cancer patients on the journey to recovery. She is involved with educational talks and discussions both at the hospital and in the Boulder community on Aromatherapy, Lymphedema Management, Oncology Massage and the importance of a more gentle approach with Bodywork for the Cancer Patient/Survivor

Although Nicola specializes in working with oncology clients, she also has the experience of working with a wide range of medical conditions, both chronic and acute, including conditions related to the respiratory, digestive, muscular-skeletal, nervous, and reproductive systems as well as skincare. Her main goal is to support her clients own healing mechanisms during times of illness, stress and emotional discomfort by choosing a modality that is best suited to their condition.

Her aromatherapy treatments combine the power of smell with the power of touch to promote and maintain both physiological and psychological well being, whilst Reflex Touch is a gentle yet powerful exploratory foot treatment that can restore balance and harmony to the whole body.

She also holds classes teaching parents and caregiver’s infant massage and discusses its importance in encouraging nurturing touch.
