Graduating from Boulder College of Massage Therapy in Dec 1988, Cindy Stonesmith is a Licensed and Certified Massage Therapist (C.M.T.) with more than 25 years of experience. Cindy also holds a BS in Exercise Science from Metro State of Denver.
Cindy’s knowledge of the body and its function is wide reaching, from Anatomy to Kinesiology to Exercise Physiology, the depth and berth of information you receive during your session is unsurpassed.
Being an athlete herself and having had the opportunity to work with numerous athletes in her massage career, has given her a broad hands-on experience with many chronic and acute injuries that are common to the athlete.
In order for the body to perform at its highest level possible, a connection between the mind and body has to be established. Massage Therapy is one way to make this connection. An analogy that I often use with my clients is “your body is like your own personal novel, and the way to read this novel is through touch, movement and mindfulness. If you want to be able to read between the lines and understand the complexities of your own body you’ll need to pick up and delve into your book frequently, sometimes hourly, daily, or weekly, as your body is an ever changing dynamic organism”. As athletes we are asking our body to adapt and perform on a daily bases.
Having a deep understanding and relationship is imperative to staying healthy and injury free. Research in Massage Therapy has shown massage to increase the relaxation response of muscle fiber spindles. Once muscle fibers are relaxed a greater range of motion and therapeutic benefits are possible. For the athlete this equates to recovery, and a quick recovery is the key to quick physiological adaptations. Athletes know that they perform at their optimum when they have a balance between intense bouts of exercise and recovery.
All of my clients are unique in their physiology and their needs. My goal is to adapt your massage appointment to your specific needs. I use a plethora of massage modalities including, Sport Massage, Deep Tissue, Cross Fiber, Hydrotherapies, and Myofascial release.
