Our Story

Our collective of wellness practitioners from all cultural and professional backgrounds bring a unique definition to community healing.

Founded by Master Massage Therapist Tim Grae in 2013, Grae Wellness wanted to change the narrative of massage therapy as more than just a spa treatment. By proving how the practice can truly heal the body and improve optimal health when coupled with the right education and guidance.


Born and raised in Harlem, New York, Tim Grae wanted to bring health and wellness to the BIPOC community around him. With over 20 years of experience in massage therapy and personal training, Tim transformed his vision into a physical manifestation. Grae Wellness is one of the only 24 hour massage therapy & acupuncture recovery companies of its kind.


Our 800 sqft wellness lounge was introduced in 2018 as a inclusive space for our community to gather, learn and evolve. The extension of our therapy space has brought hundreds of like minded wellness focused unique individuals together. Connecting wellness practitioners from all cultural and professional backgrounds over the years, Grae Wellness has given this collective a unique definition to community healing.


We are a Black owned business which focuses on modern and indigenous modalities from both eastern and western medicine. Grae Wellness has been committed to education and representation when teaching people how to take care of the mind, body, and spirit.


Proudly, we continue to help others recover, restore and rejuvenate. Our mission is to sow the seeds for the next generation of healers to have a home for their practice.

Meet the Team


"This was my second time coming here, but first time getting a massage from Tim Grae. It was PHENOMENAL from the moment I walked in to the moment I left. Great conversations, ambiance, he makes you feel pretty comfortable and will answer any questions you have. The massage itself!? It’s not your average massage ok, it will get you right and you’ll feel so much relief.


There was new found tension in my body that I never knew I had. He’s so skilled at what he does. Lots of breathing to get through and it’s also still very relaxing. I got off the bed feeling so light and euphoric. I’ve had a my fair share of massages at other places, but I’ve NEVER had one like this. I could literally feel the tension and stress be flushed out my body w. The techniques he does.


Moving was easier afterwards and I just wanted to dance and flow 😂. I suffer from back, neck, and shoulder pain having scoliosis, and my back feels SO much better. I’ll definitely be back." ~Selicia Graham
