that brings benefit
and happiness to all,
follow this course

journeys through the stars." - Gautama Buddha

Nicole Costello (owner of Centerline Reflexology) began her training in Toronto at the Canadian Academy of Reflexology (1993). She also completed extensive training from teachers from Singapore, China and the Philippines. Nicole has since developed her own style of reflexology, which integrates Eastern and Western techniques. Accupressure continues to reveal more of its benefits to her and pursuing its potential remains an on-going study.
Clientele with: swollen feet, sore backs, plantar fasciitis, diabetes, post-stroke, post-surgery, anxiety, stress and arthritis (to name a few), have all benefited from the reduction of pain, the engagement of the nervous system and the increase of circulation that reflexology offers. Nicole has also worked with women throughout their pregnancies applying reflexology according to obstetrician Dr. Gowri's Ayurvedic approach to gentle birth.
Whether Nicole is giving lectures, facilitating workshops or providing home treatments, her strong presence in the community is paralleled by her passion for holistic health. She is pleased to join Victoria Community Acupuncture + Spa to head up the foot reflexology department and launch a new affordable drop in clinic in synergy with community acupuncture. She also looks forward to developing a continuing education component at the spa, offering students a vibrant hub for learning and clinical practice.
Ever passionate about ensuring health access and preventative care, Nicole is also a board member of the charity Creating Community Wellness Society and Vice President of the Victoria Health Co-op where she also volunteers monthly at the Health Co-ops Wellness Clinics. As a supporter of the BCATA (British Columbia Acupressure Therapist's Association) she also co-hosts a monthly massage exchange for practitioners and students.
Nicole is a lover of art and aesthetic beauty and also enjoys creating sculptures in her spare time. As one who studies form and has great material awareness, clients can rest assured that their feet (and tired muscles) are in very good hands.
