About Nicole Elysian

I have lived in Duluth all my life, and I love it! I am an active person who loves hiking, bicycling, and swimming in the big lake. I am active with the local theater scene, and I also teach and take dance classes. I recently tried my hand in choreography, and I really like it! I believe my interest in many things athletic allows me to relate that much more with my clientele, experiencing firsthand what gets sore in certain activities. I will say, this is not limited to active activities! I worked a desk job for many years, and definitely experienced many of the sore spots that comes along with that. I think that my variety of job titles has all been leading me up to now, where I am at a place to be able to relate to many people's aches and pains (and how to break free of them) from a personal level. :)

I received my training at Lake Superior College here in Duluth, and graduated with honors with 625+ hours of training in 2013. Certified in Relaxation, Deep Tissue, Sports, Pregnancy, Lymphatic, Geriatric, Rotator Cuff Protocol, and Craniosacral Levels 1-3. I believe education never stops, and my most recent continuing education was  the MELT Method Level 1 training in Birmingham, U.K. I am now certified to teach both Hand & Foot techniques, and level one techniques on the specialized MELT soft foam roller. Stay tuned for classes and workshops! You can learn more about the MELT method at:

I have a very intutitive approach. I love working with each client and their individual goals to create a personalized session each time. I have a very rhythmic flow, and have consistent pressure that can vary between gentle to very firm, based on each client's individual needs. I feel so honored to be able to share this gift with my clients. It's such a joy to see someone walk out feeling better -- whether that is physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually...or all of the above! It's truly an amazing feeling to know that I am able to help facilitate that result. On the other hand, being a bodyworker helps me to grow and learn from each client, and that is something that I truly cherish.

It is a privilege to provide a relaxing, safe, therapeutic space that is free of judgement.
All are welcome.
