Nicole Lilly, MA, LMT, RSMT

Pain and challenge aren’t isolated experiences – they impact us across physical, mental, emotional, energetic, and spiritual dimensions.
Over the past decade, I have cultivated multi-dimensional healing methods to create effective therapeutic experiences that are as dynamic as you are.
As your healing partner, we will co-create a heart-centered, holistic plan to get you in alignment and empower you with new tools for lasting change.
Sessions with me may include somatic therapy, bodywork, energetics, movement, psycho-spiritual guidance, and more – all held in a trauma-trained framework. I also offer monthly process and practice groups to deepen your transformation.
My credentials include a Master’s in Body Psychotherapy from Naropa University, Licensed Massage Therapist, and Registered Somatic Movement Therapist.

Troy is a wonderful human! He truly listened to my needs and concerns regarding tightness/soreness I was experiencing and then crafted a massage that targeted those areas. Shoulder tightness that I had been experiencing for months was noticeably alleviated! His knowledge and innate talent are complimented by his kindheartedness. I cannot recommend him enough!


Great Bodywork!

I’ve been seeing Troy for over a year now and can’t say enough about how much he helps keep me healthy and feeling my best. As an professional endurance athlete, I train hard and recovery is key. Troy’s bodywork is has become a critical part to my recovery program. Highly recommend!


I wish I would have found Paula earlier!

After going through physical therapy and spinal injections, neither of which eased my back pain, I was told about Paula.  Our first session began to bring me the much-needed pain relief I had been seeking for what felt like ages.  I have been seeing Paula since the Summer of 2017 and I continue to see Paula bi-monthly to maintain my well being. She is a godsend who cares about her clients.


Fantastic bodywork

I’ve been receiving bodywork regularly for the better part of a decade. Troy was very good at listening to my needs and sticking to that plan and giving me exactly what I needed. I am an athlete and would highly recommend Troy to anyone who’s looking for ART that gets to the point. I highly recommend Troy if you’re looking for relief or recuperation from a particularly hard session. Overall, I will continue to see Troy for my massage needs! Thanks, Troy!
