We do things a little different around here. Our massage therapists function as a team and we are committed to always go above and beyond for our clients. When you choose to visit BCMT, you receive access to a team of skilled massage therapists with a singular goal....
to help YOU on your wellness journey.
Each of us has a unique massage style and we utilize different therapeutic techniques. You may find that you prefer to stay with one therapist or rotate between us as needed but the focus is 100% on you. We provide custom, therapeutic sessions tailored to your specific needs to help you find balance in your body and your daily life. During your initial appointment, we will review your medical history to ensure the highest standard of care. Follow-up sessions include a review of your history and a discussion of new issues or concerns since your last session. Please let us know if anything needs to be adjusted for you during your session (massage pressure, table temperature, room temperature, music selection or volume, etc.).
We use organic/vegan massage products by Sacred Earth, raw organic shea butters, organic coconut and jojoba oil.

Nicholas is a recent graduate of the Colorado School of Healing Arts and will be graduating this spring from Duke with a BSE in biomedical engineering. Originally on track for medical school, he later realized his calling for massage as a proactive means of injury management and prevention, particularly for athletes. He is motivated to help prevent not just physical pain or injury, but the associated pain of regret, resentment, and helplessness due to injuries. He experienced this pain after his own injury and lack of rehab hindered his dreams of playing D1 baseball and beyond. Today, it gives him an irreplaceable edge - to ensure that other athletes have the care and tools to confidently, joyfully, and sustainably pursue their dreams. Nicholas is an intuitive and compassionate practitioner who brings a genuine concern for the holistic well-being of his clients into each session.
