I have been active in the medical profession since 1969. After completing training as a radiology technologist, I worked at Parkland Hospital for over 25 years. I then completed my BS in Allied Health Education from Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas and began teaching for DISD at the High School for Health Professions at Townview Magnet Center.

I continued pursuing my education by obtaining an MA in Counseling from Amber University that included a 2,000-hour internship. I received my license to practice massage therapy in the fall of 2008.

I am retired from teaching at DISD.

Goals and Purpose
My goal is to continue building my practice for the wellness and benefit of my clients. I will continue to research massage techniques for the wellness of my clients; continue completing advanced educational classes; and consult with my professional mentors.
Massage therapy can improve your quality of life and scientific data supports the fact that massage therapy can make a difference.

Business Strategy
A good friend once shared with me: "If you want the business of individuals ...you must ask for their business". I am available to offer my clients massage therapy within my scope of practice. Call me at 214-536-4640 to schedule your next massage appointment. If you are a former client, I hope to hear from you again. If you are a current client, I thank you for your continued business. Feel free to share my contact information with people who may need my services.

Massage Therapy can help calm the stress of everyday life and allow you to walk away from a session feeling relaxed and restored. The occupation of an individual can take a toll on their physical and mental ability including medical professionals, emergency primary responders (firemen, policemen), teachers. Please refer them to me or purchase a gift certificate for them. Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you soon!

  • Reflexology Continuing Education: April 18, 2011
    CEU Provider: Cindia Golding Licensed Massage Therapist Certified Reflexologist
    History of Reflexology: Foot reflexology is not just a foot massage. This ancient therapy has a history in culture of India, Egypt, China and Native American cultures. Reflexology is a natural healing art based on the principle that there are reflexes in the feet (also on hands and ears) which correspond to all organs and systems of the body. Basically what that means is when pressure is applied to the reflex points in the feet this helps relieve tension in different ares of the body, increase circulation and promotes relaxation to the whole body. It can often help with many chronic aches and pain and may also help you to sleep better.

    Known benefits include:

    • assisting lymphatic drainage by helping the body to release toxins and waste
    • improving blood supply helping to carry nutrients to vital organs in the body
    • relieving stress, tension and pain relaxing your body to promote restful sleep
