Cynthia S. Rowe, PT, is a 1977 graduate from Northeastern University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Physical Therapy. She established Rowe Physical Therapy and Associates in 1986 after having a life threatening ruptured cerebral aneurysm in 1985 that had to be surgically repaired. Her recovery was arduous initially until she got the invaluable help from John Upledger, DO. With the guidance of Dr. Upledger and his vast knowledge, experience and expertise in holistic healing, Cindy embarked on a different recovery path that included Craniosacral Therapy and related techniques.
As she began to recover from her trauma and surgery she decided that she wanted to develop an expertise as a Holistic Manual Physical Therapist. Her survival left her with a vision to open up her own private practice in order to help others along their journey of body, mind and spirit healing. Her complete recovery allowed her to fulfill this vision, as well as to live a fuller life, which includes a family with two teenagers, a busy and full time practice, and a teaching schedule.
Cindy integrated a wide range of manual techniques into a Total Body Approach including Myofascial Release, Craniosacral Therapy, Visceral Manipulation, Lymphatic Drainage Therapy, NeuroStructural Therapy, Energy Work, Strain and Counterstrain, Joint Mobilization and Muscle Energy Techniques. With this manual approach to treatment, the office expanded rapidly to accommodate the many people who sought out this unique holistic physical therapy setting that Cindy had established.
Cindy has developed her well respected reputation based on her advanced manual skills, caring nature and positive results. She has been teaching around the country since 1988 at hospitals and seminars to post graduate physical therapists and physical therapy students on The Integration of Myofascial Release and Craniosacral Therapy. Cindy is included in The Association of Healthcare Educators as the Developer of the Fascial Mobilization course for The Upledger Institute. She is considered by her colleagues an expert clinical specialist and teacher.
In her “spare” time, Cindy enjoys exercise, meditation, yoga, biking, skiing, hiking, travel, connecting with nature, and, of course, her family.
Cynthia S. Rowe, PT selects her Associates based on their training, expert skills and clinical specialty that match her own. She and her Associates strive for no less than excellence in the quality care they provide.
