My name is Cynthia (Cindy) Oberdier. I am a licensed massage therapist since 2014 and certified in neuromuscular therapy to include stretching, myofascial release and trigger point release. Additionally, I am certified in Complete Decongestive Therapy to include Manual Lymphatic Drainage, Skin Care, Bandaging and Exercise for Lymphatic Disorders. I have been an American Association of Drugless Practitioners Certified Holistic Health Practitioner since 2011. I have worked in the medical profession for over 30 years with 14+ years in a hospital with 8+ years on a very busy medical/surgical unit as an STNA, prior to that I worked in nursing homes on skilled units providing care for my elders.
My ideal clients are those suffering from fibromyalgia, lymphedema, back disorders, carpal tunnel syndrome, shoulder disorders, athletes conditioning or having problems with sore muscles after working out; however, many others many simply need relaxation and stress reduction. My clientele range from factory to medical professionals, as well as corporate and stay-at-home moms. I have worked in chiropractic, spas, franchises and my own practice now for 5+ years as a LMT. I continue with my education to better assist you to find your relief through massage and many modalities that assist with a faster recovery time such as hot/cold stones, cupping, Biomat (at Richwood location only) and percussion devices. I provide light to deep pressure with focus on the muscle needs instead of forcing deeper pressures to make muscles release, but injure the muscles and cause pain.
I do work on minors both athletes and those with aches and pains, as well as asthma. My grandson has asthma and he gets regular massage to help keep him loose. Please note: Parents are asked to remain in the room with minor at all times.
I have recently completed certification for PTSD and stress reduction for trauma to include our veterans and families. Being mindful of PTSD myself with my father being a Vietnam Veteran, I understand the need to be gentle, but firm at the same time. I understand triggers and emotions may occur. I will hold the space needed to allow you a safe environment to let go and allow your body to begin to heal through relaxation techniques.
Please note, I have two locations I am independently working out of Richwood and Upper Arlington. The Upper Arlington location is handicapped accessible and I have a lift table that can assist with easy on and off. My Richwood location will be upgraded to handicapped accessible in the future, but as of now I do have the lift table. There are four steps with handrails to get into this location.
If you do not find an appointment time that best suits your needs, please feel free to contact me via email, phone/text and leave me a message of your availability and I will see if I can better accommodate with adjusting my times and locations. My email is email@example.com. Phone/text/voicemail: 740-361-7530. Please note, my phone is usually on silence/do not disturb so texting or email are the best ways to contact me.
I additionally provide private-duty home health services as a State Tested Nursing Assistant and can discuss those services as well if the need arises in Union County (Richwood area) only. I am BLS/CPR/First Aid trained. I can assist with being a sitter, home cleaning for at-home clientele, feeding, bathing, or assistance with simple activities of daily living. Additionally, I may be able to assist with shopping and appointments if clients are able to ride in my vehicle.
