Cindy graduated from the Massage Institute and Center for the Healing Arts in 1999 with the sole intention of providing safe, supportive touch for people with cancer. She has trained with Gayle MacDonald, M.D. Anderson Cancer Center and Memorial Sloan-Kettering. A pancreatic cancer survivor since 2005, Cindy believes in the pursuit of optimal wellness at all phases of the cancer journey – from the moment of diagnosis, through treatment, long-term survival, and at the end of life. She currently works for VITAS Innovative Hospice Care and maintains a private practice devoted to those in cancer treatment as well as those with cancer histories. With colleagues at Partners In Wellness (piw-wellness.com), she offers a biweekly, donation-based program called Radical Recovery, featuring guided meditation and massage for cancer patients and caregivers. Clients who are too ill to travel are seen by Cindy in the home setting where her focus is comfort, relief of distress, and support for the client’s hopes and goals as they evolve over time.
