Hi, I’m Cheryl Tjulander, licensed massage therapist, reiki master, and owner of Tacoma Therapeutic Massage. I provide chronic pain and stress relief via therapeutic lomilomi, hot stone and reiki energy therapies. My office is a body positive, compassionate, safe welcoming space for all and is ADA accessible.
I grew up here in the Pacific Northwest and graduated from Northwest Academy for the Healing Arts in Tacoma in 2018. I'm continually expanding my professional studies so that I can always provide you with the best care possible.
My own struggle with chronic pain, and the resulting stress and anxiety is what inspired me to become a massage therapist. Getting in touch with my whole being (body, mind, emotion and spirit) has helped me to break the pain cycle. I also receive regularly scheduled massage and energy healing sessions as part of my ongoing self-care to help me feel my best.
In my spare time you’ll find me volunteering healing touch at the local hospital which I really enjoy. I'm grateful for travel and the opportunity to learn about different cultures and traditions. I appreciate seeing the commonalities and how we're all connected. I also like to get out into nature every chance I get and love to hike, walk barefoot and hug trees (literally)! Spending time connecting to nature feeds my soul, strengthens my connection to the divine, and recharges my spirit.
Please feel free to reach out with any questions you may have, I look forward to connecting with you soon! Get in touch now.
