Why I chose Orthopedic Massage
Hello there! My name is Cindy Hebert. I am from the Buffalo area but lived in the South for several years. I graduated from Southeastern School of Neuromuscular Massage in 2009 in Charlotte NC. In 2014 I returned home to the Buffalo area. Where I attended and graduated from The New York Institute of Massage in Williamsville NY.
I became interested in Orthopedic Massage after an auto accident where I sustained a neck injury. Orthopedic Massage was so beneficial to my recovery that I decided to learn more about it. The more I learned, the more interested I became. I found there to be many health benefits associated with massage other than the obvious of loosening tight muscles, such as helping to relieve symptoms from anxiety and depression, insomnia, reducing blood pressure, improved relaxation, relief from headaches/migraines, relieving joint pain and much more. My thoughts turned to all my friends and family that were dealing with, or had dealt with those situations.
I knew if I was licensed I would be able to help them and others as well. Even if I can help just a little, I have done my job. Hearing a client say things like, “I was able to sleep in my bed for the first time in years!’ is the most rewarding part of my job”
I don’t want to stop there! My goal is to expand my practice to treat people with conditions such as Cerebral Palsy, and Parkinsons. I also have a passion for people dealing with emotional issues which is why I plan to become certified in CranioSacral Therapy. When I expand into a larger practice I would like have other health care professionals in house.
