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 the 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 client’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 clients 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 ultramarathon training. In 2019, she successfully completed the Abbott World Marathon Majors at the London Marathon becoming one of 243 Canadians at the time to do so. In 2022, she ran in Antarctica and then 250 miles across Arizona, the latter being her 2nd 200 miler in less than a year. If she is not running, you can find her getting her “Science Nerd” on with the Science World Outreach team, hiking, biking, kayaking, watching Marvel movies or out walking her dogs for long walks. If she were a Mars Rover she thinks her name would be Tenacity.
