Within several months of obtaining licensure in 2016, Cynthia began her career as a massage therapist and has never looked back. Cynthia can honestly say she loves what she does, and that she genuinely enjoys her “work”! Cynthia invests 100% of her capabilities in each and every session, never any less, to provide the treatment that is just right for that client. There are many elements to the art and science of therapeutic massage that Cynthia incorporates in crafting a treatment specifically tailored to each individual she treats. In addition to palpation skills and technique, intuition, intention, communication, mindfulness, and energy work are all tools that she utilizes. For Cynthia, there is no greater sense of accomplishment and joy than to have her client say, “That is the best massage I’ve ever had”, and that is the experience she strives to provide in every session!
Cynthia’s interest in massage led her to obtain an Associate’s Degree in Therapeutic Massage in 2017. Along the way, thanks to a wonderful teacher, Cynthia began her journey as a Reiki practitioner and has recently completed training as a Reiki Master Practitioner/Teacher. She has worked in social services for many years and still does. Always fascinated by psychology, she has earned a Master of Arts Degree in Clinical Psychology. Cynthia’s future goals are to become a certified Shiatsu practitioner and to obtain licensure as a Professional Counselor, with which she hopes to specialize in bereavement counseling and hospice work. Cynthia has a soft spot for animals & pets, especially dogs. She greatly enjoys the beauty of nature, and she loves to capture that beauty with photography. The virtues Cynthia values most are loyalty, honesty, and kindness. She believes we are here on this earth with a mission: to use whatever talents we were given to care for, value, and share with each other.
