"I have been getting vitamin shots and acupuncture from Rikki for the past few months. As a result, my brain fog has lifted and my overall energy has improved greatly. My PMS and cramps have improved as a result of acupuncture. Rikki has helped me tremendously and I am so thankful!"


"I wanted to express my deepest gratefulness of how Dr. Nicola has helped me and my body. My blood pressure has been really great along with my overall health and well being and I have her to thank for this."


"Thank you Dr. Nicola for a very informative and well-presented discussion last night. It exceeded my expectations both in relevance and content. I appreciate that you made the effort to speak to my audience. I value your time and commitment to helping folks be healthier."


"You are a real life saver!! No one else knew how to do it or cared. Thank you so much! I will keep you posted. Deep gratitude. "


"You have helped me to see that the rational mind cannot think or reason its way to a healing. The mind can't do its job without understanding the underlying feeling with clarity so maybe this is finally the understanding that I needed. The session we had helped me to see the truth in that statement. It helped me to understand the error in the underlying feeling and then after thinking about it for a day or two all those destructive thoughts just vanished cold turkey and I haven't had any of that thinking since. Kind of amazing, really. Thank you, Dr. Nicola."


"Dr. Nicola is a wealth of information in all aspects of health."


"Right away, Shelley taught me to listen to myself and my body. What did I need? I have begun to trust myself again. This has allowed me to pursue healthy means of healing with confidence; both alone and when others are involved.”

"I learned a lot from Shelley, about vulnerability and how I judge myself in it. I learned to step through it and be courageous with sharing my truths no matter what.”

~ Vulnerability & Shame participant

"I called Shelley when I was vacationing in Memphis in June, 2019. I left a voicemail and she returned my call almost immediately. I was having trauma over the “job-of-my-lifetime” and Shelley was my lifesaver. Though I ultimately left the job, I have begun to improve my life dramatically since I have known Shelley. She has helped me to see that the trauma stems likely from a very woeful childhood which included years’ long sexual abuse and I am ready now to face this. Shelley is very kind, caring and loving. She has a gentle way of leading me to the “places” I need to go. She has given me hope.”
