Olean Massage Therapist

 Sheri Coatney has acquired over 15 years of hands-on massage experience, as well as continued training in the field of massage therapy. She is Board Certified, and is a member of the American Massage Therapy Association.


Education and Background:

Sheri , a native of Allegany, NY, attended Valparaiso University, and graduated with honors with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology and Chemistry.

Following graduation, she enrolled at the University of Houston, College of Optometry. After 1 1/2 years in Houston, she transferred to Indiana University School of Optometry, where she completed her Doctor of Optometry degree. While interning at an Army Hospital in Nuremburg, Germany, she met and soon married her husband David.

Dr. Sheri Coatney practiced optometry for 20 years. During this time, she was introduced to her first massage, and was amazed at how much pain relief she experienced simply by relieving muscle tension. With regular massage, she soon found she was experiencing less anxiety, and a greater awareness of the relationship between stress and muscular pain.

She became such a firm believer in the power of massage therapy that she decided to embark on a second career. In 1998, Sheri enrolled at the New York Institute of Massage, graduating as valedictorian. She went on to become Board Certified through the National Certification Board For Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork. The next 5 years she practiced both optometry and massage therapy in Olean, NY. 

From 2006-2007 Sheri furthered her massage skills by working part-time at the Pain Management Clinic at Jones Memorial Hospital in Wellsville, NY. She provided massage therapy services to patients with chronic pain, working closely with the pain management doctor. This experience helped Sheri improve her skills in handling chronic pain issues.

 Sheri added to her resume by joining the Jamestown Community College as an adjunct professor. From 2008-2014 she taught a Medical Terminology class as well as Human Biology . She loved working in higher education, and enjoyed sharing her knowledge with the students.

Community Service & Activities:

Sheri has been involved with Olean Community Theatre for many years, utilizing her sewing skills to create costumes, as well as working as an assistant director.

She has also directed and created costumes for several charity shows, raising money for Tsunami victims in Indonesia, Katrina Hurricane flood victims, and for our local Food Pantry.

She also contributed to the establishment of the Allegany-Limestone Music Boosters and served as President of the organization.

Sheri and her husband currently attend St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Ellicottville, NY. In her spare time, Sheri loves spending time with her husband David, and her two beautiful daughters, Kierstin and Erin. She also enjoys reading, sewing, tap dancing, ballroom dancing, attending theatre and opera, and taking long walks with her husband and her Golden Retriever, Bella.


Massage therapy is intimately involved with muscle and soft tissue changes associated with disease and injury.

Sheri has found her background as an eye doctor, in which she has extensive knowledge of disease processes, has helped her grow immensely as a massage therapist.
