Kin of Hope Natural Health
Perry Hopkins, owner of Kin of Hope Natural Health, in Cedar Springs, knows there is more to health than just what you put in your body. Fitness is also a major component, and he’s now expanded his business to include the dance studio space above their current location at 90 N. Main, at the corner of Main and Maple Street in Cedar Springs.
Hopkins said that his business is unique because they are a natural health-based business, which is partnered with a wheat-free/dairy-free herbal tea shop. They offer a variety of health services, including therapeutic massage, natural health consultations, fitness classes, yoga, tai chi, dance classes, aromatherapy, ear candling, natural spa parties, self-help classes, etc.
“We keep our prices competitive and are located in the only building in town where you can have a hot cup of tea, get a massage, do yoga and fitness classes and get your picture taken (next door) all in the same building,” he said.
Kin of Hope is open Monday and Tuesday 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Wednesday, Thursday and Friday 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., Saturday 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday class dates and times vary.

Barbara is a women’s health and pelvic floor dysfunction specialist with a manual orthopedic background. “With both owners as physical therapists, we understand the process of healing and health care and its importance for your family,” they explained. “We work to help each person their own individual goals whether it is walking out to get the mail or running for our college track team.”
