THERAPISTS

TERENCE (MT1816)

Terence, the owner of Mustard Seed Massage is a nationally certified, state licensed, and insured massage therapist. He is often called a “Gentle Giant” because of his commanding stature and strength in contrast to his tranquil demeanor. After several years of work in healthcare early on in life, he discovered the healing and therapeutic power of touch on people’s lives. As he garnered the interest to continue improving wellness through touch, he turned to massage therapy. After practicing professionally for a year, he realized there was more to Massage than just creating a feel-good experience. The therapeutic aspect of Massage intrigued him as he often found himself working with athletes, people with chronic stress, pain, injuries, and other rehabilitation issues. 

With the experience he got from working with other veteran professionals in the field like Jim Starn of Expertly Crafted Wellness and Holly Paterson of MpowrD Massage, he decided to create a brand unique to his belief in what massage therapy could and should do. He envisioned an endless list of its benefits that went beyond relaxation, pain management, or fitness enhancement. For him, it is merging all three together in one session to create a uniquely wholesome experience. Thus Mustard Seed Massage was born with the vision of improving the general well-being of the public and getting people in the optimal state to fully and freely enjoy the wealth nature has to offer. 

Besides being gifted with great hands, a firm, yet delicate touch, and an intuitive mind, Terence is also an inspirational leader. His team of certified and talented therapists here at Mustard Seed Massage are dedicated to serving and improving your health through massage. He believes your health is your wealth. Due to the demands of running the studio effectively, Terence is available to see clients on a very limited schedule.

NICOLE (MT1959)
Nicole is a “Jane” of all trades when it comes to holistic healing. She began her journey as a Reiki practitioner, and later became a Reiki master in 2008. Intrigued by the world of energy healing and its effects on her own health and on that of her clients, she decided to attend massage school in order to share that awareness with as many people as she could.

In 2012 Nicole decided to become a holistic health coach because she found herself often engaging in conversations with her massage clients about proper nutrition and stress management.  “When I changed my diet...not only did I lose weight, but my skin also cleared up, my energy levels increased, and so did my mental clarity. I wasn’t emotionally eating, and I felt more connected and in-tune," attests one of her clients. Nicole also wants to be able to guide people towards making healthier food and lifestyle choices for their overall well-being. She believes in the utmost importance of taking care of one’s self first. “Self-care is so important! I believe in preventative medicine. It’s as simple as eating foods that nourish and regenerate your body, getting regular massages, proper exercise, managing your stress levels, and getting enough sleep,” she says.

Nicole is also a Pranic Healer and she has seen remarkable results in chronic pain relief while working with this modality, which of course is part of Mustard Seed Massage's mission in helping clients. Nicole is available on Mondays, Fridays and every other Saturday or Sunday.
