Nicky Bienstock is here to help heal and empower. Growing up with chronic pain and illness, she struggled tremendously with her own health and wellness. When she found yoga, a new era of her life began. She found herself especially impacted by the breath and meditation-based aspects of yoga, developing a breath practice to cope with her pain and other symptoms. She realized over the course of her journey that she was meant to pass on these tools to others, to aid in their healing journeys. She became a yoga teacher at the ripe young age of 18, stepping into the role of healer while hardly burgeoning on adulthood. She earned a degree from the Gallatin School of Individualized Study of NYU, creating her own degree entitled Mindful Medicine: Science, Culture & Practice with a minor in Child & Adolescent Mental Health Studies. She then became a Reiki Master, and later a Massage Therapist. Through her diverse educational and professional background, combined with her personal experiences and intuition, she created Homeostatic Restoration Therapy™, her method for healing. As a somatic therapist, she has worked with people across the spectrum of age, illness, and need around the US and the globe. Her work can and has existed in many contexts; ranging from public classes and workshops to private healing sessions, even to institutional programs. She is interested in creating moments of pause and peace in all settings, for all people.
