Nico’s philosophy is that in order to create an action plan, you have to get to know each individual and understand their story. Whether you are/were a musician, tennis player, engineer or even a dancer; he uses your body’s language to help you connect to the particular movement. Even if you cannot share your story as some of his clients are non-verbal, he can still observe and listen to the body’s musculature and adjust the movements accordingly. He is passionate and compassionate as I can attest to his dedication to his art. Movement therapy is truly as an art where you are creating a unique dance with each of your clients.
