A safe space for healing.

I'm honoured to support you on your journey.

x Nicola


I'm so glad you're here.

I'm Nicola, Registered Holistic Nutritionist, Functional Medicine Practitioner, Massage Therapist and Holistic Esthetician.

I've been working with clients for over 18 years and my passion for getting to the root of symptoms and creating a safe space for healing and has only grown with time.

I believe that my education and experience with both internal and external dysfunction gives me a unique perspective when it comes to optimizing health or simply providing some support on your journey.

If you need some guidance but aren't sure where to start, come visit me in the clinic and lets make a plan together.


Holistic nutrition is an approach to health that considers the whole person, including their diet, lifestyle, and overall well-being. It emphasizes the use of natural, therapeutic, whole foods to optimize health and reverse disease. This approach goes beyond just addressing dietary needs; it also takes into account emotional, physical, and spiritual health. 

As a Registered Holistic Nutritionist I guide you through supporting overall wellness, boosting energy levels, enhancing mental clarity, and managing chronic conditions through balanced, nutrient-rich meals tailored to your bio-individual needs.

I encourage mindful eating and the integration of healthy lifestyle practices to achieve a harmonious balance in life.

Holistic Nutrition


Functional medicine is a personalized, systems-oriented approach to healthcare that aims to identify and address the root causes of disease. It views the body as an interconnected system, recognizing that imbalances in one area can affect overall health.  As a Functional Medicine Practitioner I utilize symptom maps, health history, advanced diagnostic lab testing and genetics to create a personalized roadmap to health optimization and symptom reversal..

I utilize self-collection lab testing, which may include assessments of nutrient levels, stress and sex hormone, gut microbiome composition, inflammation markers, metabolic function, and toxin exposure. 

This approach focuses on correcting underlying imbalances and promoting optimal health, rather than diagnosing and symptom masking.

Functional Medicine


As a Massage Therapist and Holistic Esthetician, I offer a comprehensive range of manual therapies designed to enhance your holistic health and well-being. These include traditional massage therapy to relieve muscle tension and improve circulation, lymphatic drainage to support detoxification and boost your immune system, and guided visualization to promote nervous system regulation and deepen your sense of connection and safety.  Additionally, I provide herbal facials and body sugaring hair removal to nourish your skin and promote natural beauty. My approach goes beyond addressing physical symptoms; I aim to support your health holistically. By integrating these diverse techniques, I help you achieve a balanced, harmonious state of well-being, tailored to your unique needs.

"If it wasn't for Nicola's knowledge and insight into nutrition and wellness, I'm not sure where I would be. I was going down a very slippery slope..

Nicola's information helped find the nutritional link to my ailing health and I was able to find a life without pain, and an emotional wellness I have never enjoyed before. I was able to keep the job I love and live a life full of activity, wellness, happiness, without medication.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart."

why salt?

Throughout my 15+ years as a health practitioner, I've worked with hundreds of different health conditions, putting my detective hat on to get to the very foundation of the dysfunction.


Although, by the time symptoms surface, a variety of imbalances have occurred, I've found a factor which cannot be ignored is minerals.

Mineral deficiency and imbalance has been the biggest healing opportunity for many of my clients over the years, and so, minerals have become a major pillar in my practice.

I was drawn to Tofino for the salty, mineral rich ocean air. This is where I found healing, and I hope by working together, you may find healing as well.
