About the Instructor
Cindy McNeely, RMT, has been in practice in Ontario since 1985. Her teaching career in massage therapy began in 1988. In 1995, Trimesters: Massage Therapy Education was formed by Cindy and her colleague Alison Hines, RMT and now practising as a registered midwife in Ontario. Their goal was to raise the standards of perinatal massage therapy throughout Canada. Cindy’s perinatal teaching has taken her to seven Canadian provinces, where she has taught as faculty for massage therapy colleges. She has also provided trainings for provincial Associations at their conferences, provided workshops within massage therapy and P.T. clinics and spas. Along with massage therapy, Cindy also provides training for RMTS as labour support and doula care for those RMTS who wish to attend births. She has worked extensively with parents, babies, and children to provide knowledge, education, and hands-on therapy for infants, children, and within pediatric situations. She created the first Canadian Level III Regional Perinatal Hospital massage therapy program, which has trained massage therapy students for over twenty-five years. The program exists within high-risk pregnancy units, labour and delivery, maternal-newborn units and the NICU setting. In 2002, Trimesters collaborated with the Atlantic College of Massage Therapy www.actm.com to create the most comprehensive college-based perinatal training available in Canada–a 125-hours program devoted entirely to massage therapy during pregnancy, birth, the postpartum timeframe, and with babies and children.
