Cindy Schneider, OTR/L (Occupational Therapist)
Cindy has worked in the area of Health and Wellness and occupational therapy for most of her career. Her philosophy is based on Holistic Health. She uses “hands on healing techniques” such as self-acupressure massage, neurolymphatic and neuro-reflexive massage, sensory integrative techniques, neurodevelopmental techniques and incorporates manual techniques like Myofascial Release, Craniosacral Therapy, Muscle Energy, and Neural Energy Techniques.
Her experience has been both with infants/children and adults. She feels that all people benefit from a combination of these techniques to optimize health. By using a variety of “hands on” (also called manual techniques) and teaching skills that can be done at home, the patient begins to notice changes within a few visits. The patient and family are an active part of therapy as she believes that carry over at home is essential for continued improvement and autonomy. By balancing the body through the neuromuscular and musculoskeletal systems, the body begins to heal itself. The individual may find it less difficult to fight gravity and move more freely. Breathing, digestion, circulation and balance may begin to change. Fine motor, visual perception and cognition may also change. Occupational Therapy is covered by most insurance policies.
