Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • beautiful space and centrally located right in old town.

    Hope always focusing on exactly what I need and asks the right questions to see what is bothering me.

  • The room for massage was very soothing and warm feeling. It was small but didn't feel cramped.

    Thanks for listening to what my issues were and working hard to resolve them!

  • Cherokee continues to do amazing work on my body!

    My husband said it was the best massage he’s ever had! Thanks so much for providing some much needed stress relief :-)

  • Cherokee is always wonderful. She taught me some stretches to help with my neck pain. That's what I love about massage therapy with Cherokee, she teaches you skills for everyday life that go beyond the massage session.

    Having lower back tightness and pain, Cherokee always makes me feel amazing after her massage treatment.

  • My first massage ever had unexpected results. Walking to my car after I noticed how my body was more loose and it was easy to balance and walk upright. It seems my muscles are very tight in various places and Cherokee carefully went about finding and treating them. Good experience!

    Cherokee is absolutely amazing! She is very knowledgeable of the muscles, tendons, nerves, and how they work together due to her background in nursing. She takes the time to really listen to and address her clients needs. Cherokee is also very encouraging and thoughtful during a therapeutic massage so that her clients receive the maximum benefit from their time with her.

Cherokee was sweet and attentive, and very knowledgeable. She showed much care and gave me insight on the emotions attached to the muscle tightness. She also gave me some great stretches. On top of that, as a new client, the first 30 minutes were free! I needed that break right now, and I can't wait to go back and return the love.

I came in to Cherokee after having run a half marathon 3 days earlier. Cherokee did a great job working out tension and stiffness in my legs and feet as well as shoulders and neck. She was easy to schedule with, prompt at the office and I felt very comfortable in her presence. I will be seeing her again and I would happily recommend her to coworkers and friends in the area.

Cherokee has such a caring spirit and I find she shines with her neuromuscular work. I highly recommend her if you have muscle imbalances and want to be pain free. Soon there will be easier directions posted on her site it's a little tricky you have to find the ally way to find her but once you do it's wonderful. Another thing I like is Cherokee really communicates with you to make sure the pressure is rightI. I probably should have asked for the temperature of the room to be a little warmer but that was on me not her.

Business response:

Thank you for your great review Melinda! I really enjoyed working with you. At your suggestion, I've added walking directions to my appointment confirmation and reminder emails. Next time you come in for a session, we will have to turn that table warmer up so you are nice and cozy! Regards, Cherokee Hope RN, LMT

Cherokee has a calming and professional presence. She did a thorough intake with me and addressed my needs during the session. Good communication as to my comfort and instruction for the neuromuscular therapy. Her knowledge also from being an RN adds to her abilitiy to understand the physiology of the body. She took time to suggest Self-care things I can be doing at home.
