ABOUT THE GROVE STUDIO FOR NATURAL HEALING
Our approach to health and enduring wellness is built on the belief that the body is interconnected, with each part influencing the whole. Just as we are connected to the air we breathe, the food we eat, the environment in which we live, and the community and relationships that we surround ourselves by. While we are dedicated and passionate in the work that we do we are not healers, but merely agents of change – perhaps, at best, helping you to remove obstacles in order to reconnect to the inner wisdom and healing power already within your own body, your own mind, and your own spirit.
For our local clients, we offer unique, integrative manual therapies incorporating the best of ancient, traditional and contemporary healing practices including Swedish, Deep Tissue, Manual Lymphatic Drainage (Vodder), Reflexology, Cupping and Hot Stone Therapies. Our therapies are designed to relieve stress, fatigue and chronic pain while promoting flexibility, circulation, body-awareness and a general sense of well-being and vitality. True to timeless natural traditions, we only use pure, cold pressed and organic food-grade oils free from additives and preservatives to best achieve our clients’ therapeutic goals.
Our clients, near and far, benefit from our supportive one-on-one coaching sessions in which we, after working collaboratively to identify and prioritize the client's goals, continue to compassionately provide encouragement, inspiration and the health and wellness education that serve to truly empower and confidently achieve, not only those goals - but enduring success. It is incredibly rewarding and gratifying work and some of the greatest satisfaction comes from the measurable success achieved by the clients, and then - the resultant “ripple effect” in their communities.
Welcome to “The Grove” and thank you for the trust, and faith, that you put into our hands.
“As above, so below, as within, so without, as the universe, so the soul.”

And, as a former student of the College of Acupuncture and Massage in Miami, a graduate of Georgia Massage School, and further certified by the Esalen® Massage and Body Work Association and the Academy of Lymphatic Studies, Nina brings the incredibly healing power of touch to her clients of all ages.
Having traveled the world extensively, and having had the opportunity to truly live, integrate and raise her children in such diverse locales as India, Hong Kong, Bahrain, France and Switzerland, Nina offers a unique multi-cultural perspective and sensitivity - and very much welcomes all clients, regardless of ethnicity, race, religion or gender.
And, to best support her clients with experience, integrity and current knowledge, Nina is committed - and devotes a tremendous amount of time - to ongoing research and education, and has also created The Autism Research Library to document and file new ideas, research and biomedical treatment possibilities for children on the Autism Spectrum.

Nina has also previously volunteered as a Parent Mentor for The Autism Community in Action (TACA) and further volunteer work with the autism community inspired her to author the pamphlet, "First Steps to Recovery."
Passionate about cooking, and a firm believer in the healing power of food - and also motivated by the desire to leave her three children with a kitchen legacy for the day they are in their own homes - Nina, with the help of her children, is currently assembling a cookbook of nutritious, delicious, simple and affordable international recipes that will help inspire the whole family to return to, and find joy, in their very own kitchen.
