Skin to Soul was founded in 2006 by Nicole Russo, LMT. Our massage and myofascial therapists are handpicked for their gift of touch and attentiveness. Most have also been trained in the John Barnes Myofascial Release Technique and all take pride in using their training and skills to help clients heal physically and emotionally.
At Skin to Soul, our mission is to challenge the status quo and give our clients a unique authentic approach to health care. Our team of highly skilled and experienced therapists are dedicated to providing a safe, supportive, open environment for our clients’ healing journey. Through listening to our clients’ needs we are able to create an individualized approach to treatment that is effective in freeing our clients from pain. By gently supporting, we witness our clients process emotional blocks, opening the door to discovering their true inner self and inner joy. Through education, we empower our clients to become more self-aware of their bodies and patterns and then give them the tools necessary to leave feeling confident that they can help themselves.

I always have been passionate about massage since my grandmother was a massage therapist and holistic doctor. My grandmother would travel to people and help out with me by her side. This was the birth of my passion for massage. I would practice with my grandmother, as began looking at careers in the health field. I tried many jobs in the health field but just did not find the joy like I did with massage that “I can’t wait to start the day and don’t want it to stop” joy.
My purpose is to Heal. My whole life I have learned to help others. My audience is the whole world one soul at a time. Anyone who is in pain or suffering I welcome to relax and heal through a blend of bodywork. Healing to me encompasses the senses. To me there are 3 ways to tap into the soul. Musically, physically, and from our roots (in nature).
My intention is to assist my client’s in feeling more at home and at ease in their bodies. I believe that, not only does the body have an innate capacity to self-heal, but it can also be an amazing map, showing us where we can create more connection, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
I studied massage at the Cortiva Institute of Massage Therapy where I completed a 750 hour program. In addition to Swedish and deep tissue, I also studied Myofascial Release I, II, and unwinding with John Barnes.
Taylor graduated from Endicott College in 2010 with a Bachelor’s of Science in Hospitality and Tourism, but finally found her true calling when she graduated from a 900-hour Massage Therapy Program at The Salter School in Malden, MA in July 2013. She continued to further her education by completing an intensive course in Oncology Massage and received her Kinesio Taping 1 & 2 certification.
