Our Happy Clients

"Taylor is absolutely amazing. She's always full of energy, friendly, and clearly cares about her clients. She takes the time to get to know you, figure out what you need, and her deep tissue massages have been quite effective for me. I have never found a Massage Therapy Clinic that I have continually wanted to return to, but Knots is fantastic and I see no reason to switch again!"


"The therapists are all super friendly, the environment extremely relaxing & they make you feel at home. A special thank you to Michelle K for always making my body feel refreshed!"


"Had a great massage experience with Eric Vanderheide. He was very professional and knew exactly what he was doing. I was able to book a appointment very quickly as I had pulled my back, He did a deep tissue massage and stretched me to help alleviate the pain."


"I have been searching for a new massage therapist and I found her! Thank you so much Taylor. You are truly awesome and a joy to work with. I appreciated the extra care you took and I look forward to receiving another treatment."

Tara D

"By far the best massage therapy I've ever had! Taylor is amazing, and I also had a great experience with Michelle when I wasn't able to get in to see Taylor. Highly recommended"

Stefanie B

" The location is very warm and inviting, all the staff are very friendly and polite and makes for a calm relaxing environment. Kendall is very attentive to your specific wants and needs and will ensure you are feeling your best before you leave. I will be definitely re booking thank you !"

Curtis P

"Michelle K. is awesome! Being an RMT myself, I'm very selective about who treats me, and I can honestly say that this girl knows her stuff! Pressure was perfect. Atmosphere was very relaxing as well. I would highly recommend this place to anyone needing a great massage!"

Julia O

"I've gotten the best massages from knots, which is why they're now my main spot in town! Everyone who works there are excellent therapists, super nice & very knowledgeable. If you haven't been & are loooking for an RMT in the waterloo area, I highly recommend giving these guys a shot!"

Jennifer N

"Kendall gave me the most incredible massage. Can’t wait to go back and see her again! Headache is relieved, neck and shoulders feel great."

Lisa E

"I'm a first timer. The experience was awesome. I was made to feel very comfortable and the massage was fantastic for my neck, shoulders and upper back. Thanks, Taylor!!!"

Susie L

"Taylor is exceptionally good and I come out of my appointments always feeling 100x better then before. Her techniques are unmatched!"

Rachel B

"Taylor Dirstein has been my RMT for the past 2 years. She is very professional, knowledgeable, great listener and prompt. I am an avid runner for over 12 years and there is nothing that Taylor can't fix. I always recommend Taylor to my friends, clients and family members. I trust Taylor's knowledge, ability and I know I'm in good hands!"


"I began treatment with Taylor Dirstein in November 2011, following a cycling injury and after being diagnosed with herniated discs in my lower lumbar. Right from the start, Taylor demonstrated a high level of interest in my recovery and went way beyond what I have received from previous RMTs and what I had ever expected! Outstanding treatment was not limited to the massage itself, as she had thoroughly researched and educated me on my specific condition, developed a treatment and recovery plan, and assigned targeted exercises to ensure a quick and successful recovery. I attribute my speedy recovery to Taylor's phenomenal work! Since 2011, at a time when I was unable to walk comfortably for more than 20 mins., let alone ride my bike, I have competed in several half marathon races and completed my first Triathlon, all with competitive results! I continue to see Taylor for maintenance support and consistently receive the same level of professionalism and outstanding treatment as day one!"
