My name is Joanna Robertson, owner of Kindred Therapeutic Massage. I am a graduate of Milan Institute and also have an Associate’s of Social Science from Boise State University. I am a mother, avid gardener, care giver, and devoted advocate of volunteer work. My passion for massage therapy stems from years of exposure and involvement with individuals that needed compassionate connection, positive human touch, and alternate methods of wellness and healing. My areas of focus is Oncology Massage, which allows me to provide services for service members effects by PTSD, as well as those who are dealing with cancer. While Oncology Massage are my focus, I am well versed in a variety of massage modalities and enjoy the restorative aspects of my work. My general approach to bodywork is integrated with slow deep tissue, soothing Swedish, and trigger point therapy, coupled with client education using current technology. My goal with each client is to provide individualized treatments, provide relief and restoration, while empowering each client on their journey to full body wellness.
It is my mission with Kindred Therapeutic Massage, to treat my clients with the same quality of care that I give my own family. I pride myself with providing an atmosphere of safety, comfort, care, and healing, while alleviating pain, reducing stress, and balancing lives by tailoring individualized treatments to my unique clientele.

Hello everyone, I am Jesse Cohea. I graduated from the Massage Therapy Program at Carrington College in Boise, Idaho. I have a big place in my heart for family, and most of my free time is spent with my two children, dog, and fiancé. We love to chase waterfalls in the summer and natural hot springs in the colder seasons. I love spending time researching various outlets for health and well-being as well as staying up to date on trends in food, massage, and rehabilitation techniques that can assist in a more stress-free life. I love utilizing an array of techniques to assist in relieving the stress, physical or mental, we experience in day-to-day activities such as work, sports, and hobbies. I view massage as a necessary tool that can assist in pain and stress management, and I have always admired the invigorating contributions massage can have on the body. I am currently continuing my education in personal training, sports massage, and injury recovery. Being a massage therapist that does a lot of rehabilitating techniques with clients for injuries or recovery from surgeries, I love prevention methods as well and providing the extra steps necessary to sustain long term health and confidence in our ability to move. Prevention and maintenance are main areas of my focus in massage therapy, and I believe are very instrumental for a healthy future.
I believe, to ask for the best out of ourselves and to meet expectations of what our life has in store for us, we must be physically and mentally accommodating to take on the task. That comes to fruition differently for everyone. I utilize an array of techniques to first relax the body and mind, and once relaxed the barrier of stress isn’t protecting you from enjoying the session. We then can provide the technical techniques such as Graston, Trigger Point Release or Deep Tissue to release constrictions in the muscle, release myofascial adhesions, or to provide a much deeper massage to get into the areas of concern that are affected or need attention. Of course, every session differs and through the process of body work we customize every session to accommodate the changes our bodies go through and use different techniques for the challenges that come along as well.
