About Us

Divine Connections Massage and Spa opened with the vision to “be the leader in therapeutic and medical-grade massage therapy of the Tampa Bay.” The establishment --nestled in the Lutz area- has been thriving as a part of the Lutz community since summer of 2015.


Spa owner Mercy Terrill achieved her dream of becoming a business owner after overcoming obstacles – like physical injuries and congenital conditions – to become licensed massage therapists. Mercy was born with Aniridia, a congenital condition in which the eye has no iris. Her legal blindness has given Mercy a unique sense of touch, enhancing her abilities as a massage therapist.

Her story with massage therapy started after almost completely severing her spine in college. The doctors told her that surgery would be her only option. However, she was determined to seek a holistic alternative. That’s when she experienced healing through massage therapy and holistic medicine. Later in life she graduated from Sunstate Academy and became a licensed massage therapist herself.


Her desire is to enhance the lives of individuals from chronic pain and suffering, while making a difference in the community. “I want to pass forward the gift and the blessing that I was given,” said Mercy. This inspiration led to the Spa’s mission as a source of healing hands to all who enter. 

She desires to make a difference by educating her clientele in the variety of therapies, benefits and proactive health of massage; by using her knowledge base and skills to reverse damage and pain in her clients’ bodies; and by training other therapists to provide a quality, medical-grade massage therapy.


“The divine difference is that we don’t do memberships or contracts. We offer all modalities and don’t charge extra for that,”  explained Mercy. Divine Connections is committed to being involved and giving back to the community by participating in charities and fundraisers, donating hundreds of dollars worth of massage toward raffles and giveaways.


When you choose Divine Connections as your dedicated health partner, you not only become part of the family, but you invest the livelihood and legacy of your local neighbors and families.
