Cindy Bates is the owner of Bodywork for Life and has been a Licensed Massage Therapist since 1995. Using her extensive training, Cindy combines advanced techniques to meet the individual needs of each person.

A native Texan with a background in Hotel Management and Marketing, and Event Planning, Cindy always enjoyed massaging friends and family. In 1995 she attended Phoenix Therapeutic Massage College and immediately knew her focus would be on pain management and sports therapy. Upon the completion of school she moved back to Texas to pursue certifications in Neuromuscular Therapy and Sports Massage. She immediately began using her newly learned skills on professional Hockey and Baseball players.

While attending an anatomy/dissection class at the University of South Florida she was inspired to further expand her knowledge.She sought out educational leaders in the Massage industry and, over the next four years, traveled to various cities (a lot to Florida) accumulating over 3000 hours of continuing education and 3 certifications. During this time she was very busy treating a wide range of people, all ages and fitness levels in her private practice.

Cindy returned to Arizona and opened Bodywork for Life in August, 2000. Since then she has been dedicated to implementing innovative, yet effective techniques that are proven to provide optimum health and wellness for her clients. After discovering the benefits of Pilates and how it reinforced the work she did, Cindy opened a Pilates Studio in the same building as her clinic in 2006. In early 2010, she was introduced to and extremely impressed by the benefits of another movement therapy called The Egoscue Method, which became an important addition. After witnessing the power of Microcurrent, Cindy completed training and added this healing modality in 2007 and continues to attend frequent seminars on the subject.

Cindy is dedicated to providing the highest level of care to her clients, evidenced by the fact that she has achieved over 5000 hours of advanced training in bodywork, wellness and nutritional therapies, and continues to develop her skills.

Cindy enjoys traveling, hiking, going to the farmer’s market and cooking with fresh, healthy ingredients; and time with her animals.
