We are excited to share our passion and our experience with our clients.
Theresa Wilkes, BA
Owner / Health Consultant / Therapist
As the Owner and Lead Therapist of Light Hand Clinical Massage, Theresa employs all the skills she has gathered over her 30 years in the healing arts profession. She is the Lead Massage Therapist, assessing and treating the most complex cases as well as over-seeing all massage cases. As a previous massage school owner and present NCBTMB Approved Continuing Education Provider, Theresa trains all the LH therapists in the light hand, deep focus style which includes techniques drawn from the most up to date bodywork techniques. And, having been an integral part of many amazing natural healing businesses, Theresa envisions Light Hand serving the whole person, the community of Greenville and (to be so bold) the planet.
Theresa graduated from The North Carolina School of Natural Healing in Asheville, N.C. in 1991. The school’s focus was to teach massage as a holistic healing art instead of a technical vocation. Later, she became a teacher at the school and eventually its owner and director in 2002. Theresa ran her private practice for 15 years in Asheville and Saluda, N.C. specializing in treating chronic pain syndromes. She has also worked with many clients who are recuperating from cancer or major surgery. In 2009, Theresa opened her practice in Greenville, SC. “I really see Greenville opening up to massage therapy in a very big way right now, but mostly in the spa variety. I am very excited to share with people what true clinical massage can do.”

Theresa is certified in Neuro-Muscular Therapy, Craniosacral Therapy and, Neural Reset Therapy as well as herbalism, meditation, and energy healing. She has also studied and practiced Lymphatic Drainage, Positional Release, and Connective Tissue Therapy (a form of deep tissue massage) for many years. “Over the years I have seen so many people who are desperate to find relief from what I know to be soft tissue (muscle) pain. Historically, they have been treating it with prescription medication, steroid injections, physical therapy, or surgery. They know that it isn’t making them well, but they don’t know what else to do. When you treat muscle pain with massage therapy and bodywork, the client not only gets pain relief but gets healthy muscle tissue which will be less prone to re-injury or flair-ups. I love being a part of this process. Though it is not a quick solution, it can lead to authentic wellness, and I am well versed in walking every step of it with my clients. It’s an honor to witness good people returning to a full life, free of pain.”
Caprice has been a clinical massage therapist for almost 10 years. She specializes in treating chronic pain conditions with an integrative approach and a sensitive touch. She is skilled in lymphatic massage, sports training injury recovery, trigger point release, pre/post natal massage, pre/post surgical massage and medical massage.
Caprice is extremely grateful to be a part of every client’s journey to better health.
Caprice trained with Theresa Wilkes as a Light Hand therapist 6 years ago before launching her own business and practice. She is returning to the Light Hand team with many new skills and lots of experience treating people in pain. She is looking forward to being part of the holistic healing model of The Whole Health Collective.

She is here to bring joy, give kisses and hold a peaceful space by sleeping under Theresa’s table while you get a massage. Please come in and meet our new addition. She’s looking forward to it!
