About Nicole Viejou:
Since I was a little girl, I have been fascinated with the incredible intricacy of the human body, and have thrived in helping to nurture the health of others. It is only natural that massage therapy became and interest and a pursuit as a result.
As a teenager, I was injured while attempting to wake-board, ending up with what I thought was a low back injury. I was very active and played all kinds of sports, as as a bank teller at the time, I was in excruciating pain day and night for a week until I went to receive massage. To my great surprise, my injury was completely healed after only three treatments, and the RMT explained to me that the pain I had felt in my low back was actually coming from the piriformis muscle that I had strained, which is deep under the glutes. I had already been considering becoming an RMT, and this sealed it for me.
During my training at OVCMT, I quickly came to recognize that people are not textbooks, and my own various injuries and resulting symptoms were not typical to what I was learning to memorize as the 'right' answers. However, those textbooks provided a strong foundation to build upon, while my experience provided a flexible and creative mentality for whenever I am considering how to best help each particular client.
Shortly after graduating from college, I became a registered massage therapist with a special interest in TMJ (jaw) and neck work, and a heart for personalized treatment plans to help my clients with improving their quality of life. I appreciate the holistic approach that massage therapy affords me to have, considering all the systems of the body and how they work cohesively.
To help determine the best treatment plan for each individual, I use a variety of assessment techniques. During treatments I use myofascial techniques, neuromuscular therapy, craniosacral therapy, Swedish massage, and other techniques to accomplish desired results.
I have experience in working with people of a broad range of ages, experiences, and health concerns from newborns and pregnant/nursing ladies, to extremely elderly; from health athletes to chronic/acute dysfunction; and I welcome input and feedback from my patients during and outside of their treatments.
