Nicole Makinson, RMT

I was once told that to be good in your career, you have to love what you do. And, being a massage therapist is what I love! Everyday I am able to help people on their journey to wellbeing, whether it is through a series of treatments or just a relaxation massage. I take pride in what I do, and always give my best to every one of my clients that I see.

As a young child growing up in the country, in Dauphin MB, I loved playing with the pets I had. I was often found cradling my cats to sleep on my lap for hours. Maybe this was where I started to realize, that ‘relaxation’ could be my future career!?

I always knew that I wanted to help people in a way that made me feel good about what I was doing, but the path to becoming a Massage Therapist did not become clear until I attended a career fair back in high school. This is where I discovered Massage Therapy.

I still remember the day I got my first ‘mini’ massage, and exactly how I felt after. As I watched the other students staggering away from the booth after their massage with big grins and recommendations for their friends to try it, I knew I was on to something. From that moment, I decided that this was the career I wanted and I went for it.

I graduated as an RMT from Wellington College of Remedial Massage Therapy. This was probably one of the most exciting days of my life! Since then, I have experienced the power and healing that massage offers both as a therapist and a client. It still amazes me that we are able to see results right away in most cases, whether big or small, the benefits are undeniable and rewarding to be a part of.

Since my graduation, in addition to Swedish and deep tissue massage, I have taken continuing education courses in Pre and Postnatal massage and Labor and Delivery Support which I would like to continue and further pursue.

I truly enjoy seeing the smiling and grateful faces of my clients after a massage, and knowing that I did well – That I made someone’s day a little better, a little brighter. I believe in what I do, and urge anyone who has not yet tried massage to give me a call today (488-CARE). It will be well worth it!

I look forward to meeting you, so you can get the care today for a better tomorrow! Contact us today!
