Nicki Marshall is a Certified Essential Somatics Movement Teacher based in a small rural village in Lincolnshire, UK.

Nicki has always had a keen interest in health, wellbeing, and fitness, participating in many sports. Unfortunately, chronic shoulder pain impacted her everyday life and prevented her from taking part in the sports she loved. Traditional treatments failed to provide any significant pain relief. Originally a Commercial Solicitor, Nicki reassessed her work-life balance and set up as an equine behaviour coach in 2020. Whilst attending a horse behaviour course in 2016 she was introduced to Feldenkrais’ work which led her to Somatics. After attending her first Clinical Somatic Education class with Liz Underwood, she finally experienced relief—like the pain switch was finally being turned off. She was inspired to learn more and she continued to work with Liz and began her own regular Somatics practice to overcome her shoulder pain.

Nicki was inspired to share this work to prevent others from wasting time and money and suffering unnecessarily the way she did, so she enrolled in the Essential Somatics Movement Teacher Training and became fully certified in 2022.

Nicki is passionate about helping her clients learn how to unlock their habituated movement patterns, release muscle tension, and find the freedom to enjoy movement again. Nicki also enjoys working with sportspeople to improve performance and reduce the risk of injury. Nicki has a particular interest in helping horse riders become aware of how their body movement patterns can also restrict the horse’s ability to move freely and give riders the toolkit to change.

Nicki teaches group classes and individual sessions which can be provided online and in person.
