Big Tree School of Natural Healing.

"I started my journey as a licensed massage therapist in 1996. I had been a physical therapist assistant for four years prior to my entering massage school. As a PTA I was required to do all the "hands on" work to help the PT's.I found that people had better results when massage was added. After 22 years of bodywork and repetitive strain injuries on my own body Cindy was offering something different. Meridian Massage was the best thing I could have down for my practice in years. Cindy's class was fun, innovative and personal. I rediscovered my own intuition as well as learning how profound the work is to myself and clients. Cindy has a special gift for sharing and teaching. Since adding in meridians with the intention on meridians , my body is less sore and my clients are having amazing results with extra "bonus" of themselves going deeper within as well. Adding abdominal meridian massage has again improved my work to a whole other level. Many thanks and gratitude to Cindy and this life and career changing addition to my practice."

"Cindy is such a force that I find it difficult to differentiate her from the WuQi enough to find the words that are required to convey my thoughts and feelings about studying with and knowing her to you.  A Vulcan mind-meld would be much more appropriate because words really do not suffice to describe how dedicated, caring, educated, intelligent, personable, inspired, spiritual - indescribably awesome - she and her teachings are.  She has this amazing, patient way of allowing her students to find their own learning.  It's not that she isn't teaching, she most certainly is - way more than you even realize - sometimes long after the fact.  It's just that her way is so gentle (and often quite funny - hilariously healing at times), that you never feel taught, but rather guided to come to your own conclusions and accepted wholly, both for your conclusions themselves as well as how you arrived there.  This is not to say that she won't sometimes encourage you to mold them some more, or at least think about it, but she will do so ever-so-respectfully.  Over the ten years that I have known Cindy, though much more closely in the last few, I have felt incredibly honored and blessed to have had our paths cross and our journeys coincide.  She is one of the most wise women I have ever met, and studying with her is nothing short of the highest honor.  Take the opportunity!"

Kari Hoyt, LMT/NCTMB, Bodease

"In my career I have met a few teachers who have wound up propelling me into a new level of effectiveness or a new pathway.  Prenatal Massage was my first divergence from "normal massage" techniques back when no one did it.  Then aromatherapy came into my life when the economy was so harsh that 48 places in our county folded.  Thank God for the inspiration aromatherapy gave me... I wound up working seven days a week (2 and a half days outside of our spa just to make ends meet). Life is starting to get easier now. Then you came along.  I am so thankful; when the student is ready the teacher will appear.  ShaZam...here you are!!!! I am old so having some difficulty remembering all the names of the points, but my hands go to them during the sessions and my clients are getting almost immediate shifts; it's so awesome... Thank you for being who you are.  I value your guidance at this point in my career..."
