About Nicol Moorgan


Nicol Ash Moorgan NMT CMT CNT LMT

Body Work Education/Experience: In 1989 I began apprenticing with my mentor in Northern California, I decided to attend the Colorado Institute of Massage Therapy in Colorado Springs, CO; a rigorous 1300 hour course with an emphasis on Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT) and Trigger Point Therapy (TPT). I began to direct my focus towards recovery and rehabilitation. I graduated in 1992. Immediately after graduating, I received a position with the EDS and Olympic Cycling Teams. I served as the personal team therapist for spring/summer training and events at the Colorado Springs Velodrome Olympic Training Center. I also opened a small private practice in the Colorado Springs Broadmoor area.

Modalities: I have acquired certifications in NMT, TPT, Che Nei Tsang (CNT) and Reiki. I continue to seek and practice new modalities integrating them into my work to create a unique style that is both therapeutic and relaxing. 

Other experience: I worked for over 13 yrs with local cyclists from the Endurance Training Center (Mill Valley) acting as support and therapist for group road rides and privately.

I was head therapist at the Café of Life Chiropractic of Marin for 17 yrs. I enjoyed watching my clients grow and change over these years.

I am also a Certified Yoga Instructor. I have been studying and practicing Iyengar Yoga 25 yrs. Through my practice I have realized a depth and understanding of the body and its healing power that has profoundly affected my work.

What drew me to massage as a career? I began my healing career over 30 yrs ago in Northern California and was initially drawn because I have always had an interest in the body and its healing ability. I also loved the flexibility it offered me as a working single mother. I quickly grew to realize that I connect with bodywork on a deep level.

In my downtime? I am active. An avid hiker and outdoors lover, my passions are yoga, scuba diving, travel, music, nature and my beloved dog. She is my best friend and helps me and my clients with my work.

As a long time resident of the San Geronimo Valley, I am grateful to bring my knowledge and skills to the place and people with whom I feel so deeply connected.

“Yoga is like music: The rhythm of the body, the melody of the mind, and the harmony of the soul creates the symphony of life.”
