Nina has been helping others as a massage therapist for over 21 years. Her career started in Kazakhstan Soviet Union, where she worked at the Institute of Experimental Surgery providing massage therapy post-surgery to decrease recovery time. The exceptional results convinced Nina of the power of her work.
When she emigrated to United States, she continued her massage career by attending massage school in Sarasota Florida. She was fortunate to be trained there in NeuroMuscular Therapy by one of its founders, Paul St John. Using this very precise neuromuscular technique, Nina has been working to rehabilitate people from all sorts of injuries: alleviating pain, restoring physical function and improving mental abilities.
Nina is very passionate about her work, the results she obtains and the well-being of her clients. She has additional certifications in Russian (European) Massage, Deep Tissue, Myofascial Release, and CranioSacral Therapy. She likes to make sure her clients achieve the best of living by focusing on self-care, nutrition, sports and the outdoors.
Nina spends her free time hiking in the mountains, doing yoga, reading, listening to symphonic concerts, and taking professional seminars to sharpen her massage skills.

I have had regular massages with Nina for the past few months. She is a very knowledgeable, serious practitioner of neuromuscular therapy. More than other therapist, she has loosened up my 77-year-old body and helped with pain.
I regularly visit this Collective and get massage treatment from Nina Spencer. Her work on me helps very much to be in a good form and improve not only physical but also moral feelings. Nina is always friendly and attentive, and I really enjoy my visits.
