Premier Therapeutic Prenatal + Postpartum Massage,
Physical Therapy, Advanced Aesthetics
Established in 2007, A Healer’s Hand + The Nest is an award-winning specialty spa — locally owned and operated by Nicole Budeau, certified prenatal and postpartum licensed massage therapist, business entrepreneur, and certified Reiki master — providing premier perinatal and infant massage services, therapeutic massage, advanced aesthetics, physical therapy, and continuing education and training in Madison, Wisconsin.
A Healer’s Hand + The Nest (AHH) is situated at the corner of Williamson Street and John Nolen Drive, just minutes away from Madison’s iconic Capitol Square and across the street from Lake Monona. It was named the 2022 Silver Winner for Best Specialty Spa in Madison Magazine’s annual Best of Madison competition — a testament to the AHH mission of supporting community health through premier prenatal and postpartum massage services.
Committed to best-in-class therapeutic care combined with science-based treatments and technologies, the AHH team — a compassionate collective of licensed professionals — is organized around four core service modalities, including specialized prenatal and postpartum therapeutic massage, advanced aesthetics, physical therapy, and continuing education and training. Together, these distinct AHH branches form the conceptual and literal “nest” — a safe haven and inclusive community environment dedicated to nurturing and empowering women and families through lifelong learning and holistic healing.
