Cyndi’s Values

  • I value the well-being of my clients and treat them with respect, providing friendly, courteous service. I maintain a high level of skill and knowledge in order to deliver the most effective and thorough treatment.
  • I value quality. In order to deliver the best service, I must limit the number of individuals I am willing to treat.
  • I value integrity. I obey all laws and adhere to a stringent code of business conduct; preserving the privacy of clients and integrity of my practice. When I feel massage is not an appropriate treatment, I will promptly advise.
  • I value education. As a member of the American Massage Therapy Association and the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage I advance my knowledge and skills through continuing education.
  • I value the availability of alternative and preventative health care. Therefore, I chose to locate my business within Westlake Chiropractic.
