Master Massage Therapist
Grae Therapy Owner
Timothy Grae grew up in Harlem, NY and has always had a passion for health and wellness. From his time as a musician, to partnering with Healing Hands mobile spa, to becoming a Spa Manager at Equinox, his underlying interests in the fitness community always came forward.
He pursued further education and graduated from the renown Swedish Institute of Manhattan with a degree in Occupational Therapy and a focus in Eastern Medicine. He is licensed as a Master Massage Therapist and Healthcare Provider. Upon receiving his CPT (certified personal trainer), Grae realised that massage therapy and exercise would make for a healthy body and mind.
In 2014, he founded Grae Therapy, where his collective passions of music, knowledge, and healing, come together right in the heart of the City.
“I believe feeling good makes your life worth living. Fitness, massage and music is the perfect trifecta to energize your world. Creating that experience for others is why I do what I do.” -Tim Grae
