Nicola Grice, Registered Massage Therapist
“The beauty of a living thing is not the atoms that go into it, but the way those atoms are put together” - Dr. Carl Sagan
Born and raised in the North West of England, Nicola packed her life into a single suitcase in the summer of 2000 and moved to Vancouver to continue her Ph.D. in Medicinal Chemistry. Her lifelong passion for science has, in particular, pertained to the human body. She graduated in December of 2012 from Registered Massage Therapy program at Vancouver College of Massage Therapy in Vancouver, BC with 5 consecutive terms on the Dean’s List amongst her list of achievements.
Depending on each patient’s needs, Nicola works to put the pieces of a “health puzzle” together to help alleviate a diverse range of conditions from neurological, orthopedic, systemic and stress-related through the creation of balance within the human body. She is dedicated to seeing her patients become educated, through self-awareness, on the appropriate lifestyle changes that will help prevent future recurrence of injuries and pain.
Forever looking to expand her knowledge, Nicola welcomes opportunities to pursue further education particularly in the areas of sports medicine, myofascial manipulation, proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitative stretching, ligamentous articular strain techniques, dermoneuromodulation and joint mobilizations, of which she has already successfully undertaken and completed several courses.
When not massaging, this self-confessed energizer bunny can be found running long distance around Vancouver either marathon or ultra-marathon training. In 2019, she successfully completed the Abbott World Marathon Majors at the London Marathon becoming one of 243 Canadians to do so. In 2020 she will attempt a marathon in Antarctica. If she is not running, you can find her getting her “Science Nerd” on at Science World, hiking, biking, kayaking, watching Marvel movies or out walking her Chihuahuas for long walks (because they do not belong in purses).
