Nick Pavoldi is a Rolf Structural Integration Practitioner and proprietor of Bodywork Professionals in Latham and Saratoga Springs, NY. He studied massage therapy in Tampa, Florida in 1995, 1996. After several years of practice had received the Rolfing series and felt that he found his life’s calling. In 2000 and 2001 he studied Rolfing at the Guild For Structural Integration in Boulder, Colorado, and Kapaa, Hawaii.

Rolf Structural Integration was created by Dr. Ida Rolf in the 1960’s as a whole body approach to the connective tissue system and body part relationships. It was her belief that as the structure of the body improves so does the function. This can have profound effects on the person as a whole, improving movement and flexibility but also the relationship with themselves.

After several years of practice he began to realize there was a need for a bodywork alternative to the widely pervasive "massage as a luxury" model that he saw in the community.

Nick started Bodywork Professionals in 2006 to be the standard in effective soft tissue treatment. He wanted to gather together skilled and passionate practitioners in many different disciplines to work together toward a common cause. The Bodywork Professionals staff has grown into one of the most skilled and seasoned team of the therapists in the region.

Nick has wide ranging interests. He is an amateur musician, avid contra dancer, founder of the Gong Lab; a sonic and vibration experience, founding member of the Pregnancy Project; a complimentary women's health collective.
