Look What Our Students Have to Say...

I have had the amazing opportunity to learn the meridian massage method from Cindy, and it has been a wonderful add to my massage practice. Cindy is a no-nonsense teacher, who is incredibly knowledgeable on this subject, and is easy to listen to and learn from. She has helped me not only to work on my clients, but myself as well. Bringing my attention to my breath and using my breath to stay present and grounded. I love working with the Meridians and how they affect the physical, emotional and other aspects of a persons well being. It has enhanced my massage practice like I never believed possible. I enjoy learning from Cindy, and look forward to continuing on this path of health and healing.

You are an incredibly wonderful teacher. You take the complex and break into bits of understanding that stick with me. Thanks so much!!

Sonja Simpson, RN

I am grateful that Cindy has offered this course(Guidebook to the 5 Elements). I had a little previous knowledge of the material, and she has made me understand it in much more detail. I love her creativity for incorporating a group where her students can interact, and learn from each other. I appreciate the fact that even though the class has ended the learning will continue.

OH MY GOODNESS is all I can say!  I took the 12 meridians course and have been practicing on myself and my family. I have been having horrible neck pain and headaches for a couple of years due to an old injury, my daughter has headaches on and off because of an active lifestyle and my husband injured his shoulder climbing. I worked Kidney, Liver and Gallbladder on myself, Gallbladder, Large Intestine on my daughter and Gallbladder, Bladder, Kidney and Large Intestine on my hubby. I also used Pericardium and Heart last night on myself since insomnia has been an issue as well. THE RESULTS ARE IN... my headache and pain were controlled by use of the points and I slept the best I've slept in months last night. My daughter's headache was resolved as well and my hubby has no more pain in his shoulder!!!  So, to say I am grateful is an understatement!  I will keep you posted on my progress, but had to share these results as I am so excited at the possibility of being able to do some bodywork on clients for the first time in almost 2 years!! (The pain had prevented me from continuing to practice). Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!!
