Relaxed Repeat Customer
I came to see Hope with a number of physical issues. She is easy to talk to and thorough in her search to determine what you and your body need. She has a gentle, yet firm, touch that worked wonders on my knotted neck and tense lower back. I am happy to refer Hope to anyone needing help with pain relief or just a relaxing massage.

Won't go anywhere else
I live with chronic illness and require regular massage therapy. I won't go anywhere else for my massage as Hope is amazing. Great person to talk with and an amazing massage therapist. I highly recommend Awakenings.

60 minute massage
I had the 60 minute body massage. It was a very calming experience. Her experience showed in the way she worked the muscles and had concentrated on areas of stress. I would highly recommend her to anyone. In fact right after my appointment, I booked one for my husband.

I have a hectic stressful job & have been seeing Hope for the past 18 months to keep my aging body operating. I have had a number of massages and her massages are by far the best I have had. A 60 minute massage with Hope works the knots &kinks out of my neck, lower back and feet. She has a fun, positive outlook yet is respectful if quiet is what you need. She has a heated massage table and seems to read exactly how much pressure to apply to get my knots out. She is worth every penny!

I've gone to her for years and always feel great relief after she's given me my massage.....the knotts are all gone in my back and I'm up and running again! I highly recommend her!

Wonderful Hour of Relaxation
Hope is awesome, my back was cranky and she made it feel amazing. She always does a great job of finding the sore spots and working them out. Can't wait to get back in and see her soon.

I have been receiving massage as self-care for many years. Hope is a phenomenal masseuse. Using the hot rocks and oils on my back, I am on the road to recovery. She intuitively knows where my trouble spots are. I couldn't be more happy with finally finding someone who does body work. Thank you Hope!
Oct 14, 2016http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30239380
I had a fantastic massage today with rocks, on a trigger point in my shoulder blade that has been giving me problems for months. Hope did a lot of work alone in the affected area and said later she could tell it really loosened up. I felt a whole lot better today when I was out and about. Thank You My Dear, Grandpa Bob

Hope is very kind and welcoming and makes you feel relaxed right away and that's even before the massage. However the actual massage is amazing and you truly are relaxed in every possible way! Can't wait to go back! I am definitely putting that on my monthly to do list.

Great Moment to Enjoy
I felt I was with someone who knew so much about how bodies work and shared information with such confidence and understanding. I really enjoyed this incredible gift, given to me for Mother's Day. I selected reflexology and my hour was relaxing, informative and totally devoted to my enjoyment. I would highly recommend Awakenings MBW to others. This truly was a fabulous gift and treasure, and one that others would truly enjoy.

Hope always seems to know just where I need help. Both before and after my car accident she has been helping me be more comfortable in my body. She is fabulous.

Hope is wonderful.
When you are hurting this is where you need to be. Hope knows her stuff. I have gone to her for several years now and would not consider going to anyone else. She is very professional and still personable. Lucky for me that a friend of mine directed me to her.
May 18, 2016http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30239380

Amazing Healing Touch
I recently suffered a re-injury of a herniated disc in my back. It felt like my hip/butt muscles were tied in a knot around a red-hot poker. Hope worked on this knot w/ warm stones and an incredible massage. It was the first time in 4 weeks I had had release from this knot. Two days later the knot was gone. While there is still some sciatica, I am confident w Hope's massages I will be rid of it all soon. She has an intuitive touch and is very knowledgeable about healing the body.

Awesome as always
I've been getting massages from Hope for many years now even though I live in California. Every time I'm up in Salem I try to book a massage with her, although she does get booked up sometimes. She's very friendly and professional, and I always feel so much better afterwards. I wish I could find someone I liked as much in the Bay Area!
Apr 2, 2016http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30239380
Hope does the best job at finding where I carry my tension and stress then working the knots out! I feel much better now!

Relaxed and Renewed
Hope did a great job providing both a relaxing massage and working out all the problem area. She is professional and knowledgeable. I really appreciated how she listened to what was the problem area and concentrated on those but also was able to feel what my body needed and take care of area that I didn't even realize hurt. Great Job

Stiff neck and shoulders
I have been going to Hope for a year now and every time she relieves the stiffness in my neck and shoulders. I have tried other massage therapists in the past but Hope is the best. I would recommend her to anyone.
Jul 23, 2015http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30239380
This was my first massage with Hope and also my first Lomi lomi massage. Her business is warm and inviting. Hope was very friendly and kind. I look forward to trying out her deep tissue massage which is what I normally get. Great value, excellent service, and I'd definitely recommend her!
Jul 2, 2015http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30239380
Professional personal attention
The first time I went to Hope I had a lot of tightness in my shoulders. She was the best massage I had ever had. The soreness was 90% gone after the first treatment. She is very knowledgable in how to attack the problem areas. I left feeling like a new man. I have continued to go to Hope and I am very happy that I have found a massage therapist that I am comfortable with and know that she will make my aches go away.

Excellent Specialist who is Extremely Thorough!
Hope is extremely thorough in finding spots and areas you might not even realize are giving you problems and pain. When areas are identified, she is excellent with her many hours of extended training and classes, so she can give you comfort and relief. I would agree with another reviewer, Christina, 'Hope's Touch' has very reasonable prices.
Dec 25, 2014http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30239380
The best by far!
Absolutely amazing! And her prices are very reasonable. I won't go any where else now that I've been to Hope's touch.

Dec 5, 2014http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30239380
I've been going to Hope for massage for years, because there's no one better. She's kind compassionate, and extremely skilled in a variety of massage techniques. She's helped me with my CFS, she's getting me through my husband's terminal cancer, and has also helped me along the way with the variety of minor ailments. I highly recommend her!
Nov 13, 2014http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30239380

She is excellent!
Hope is an expert in what she can provide to her clients. She reads the body well with her years of expertise and often finds places that can reduce pain and aid in relaxation. She listens to her clients needs and makes you feel at ease with her friendly nature. If this is your first massage visit, you will not be disappointed. Share your experience with friends and family and maybe fill a Christmas Stocking with one of Hope's Gift Certificates. Thank You Hope!

Best in town
I have been getting massages for many years for back problems due to my job. Hope is the best therapist I have ever had! I have been going to her for years, my favorite massage is hot stone. The combination of heat and her touch is truly therapeutic ! I strongly recommend her to anyone who has muscle or joint pain, or anyone who just simply wants to relax.
