Cindy Lichtenhahn is the founder of Grand Junction's first
Lymphatic Enhancement Center
Since 2009 Cindy has been a licensed massage therapist. Right from the beginning of her practice she wanted her type of massage to be therapeutic to her clients.
Not just a the spa-like luxury type of massage that everyone thinks is for the rich and famous, but a beneficial rejuvenating,
therapeutic, pain relieving kind of massage. She wanted to provide affordable massage for the every day hard working men and women of Colorado.
Recognizing that the skin is the human body's largest organ and the first line of defense against the outside world of disease and discomfort. Her massage technique(s) began incorporating Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD) modalities to boost the body's immune system. She has learned that regular MLD therapy can help a person acquire over all well being by allowing a natural pathway for the body to eliminate cellular debris and recognize unwanted microbes and bacteria, foreign cells, by enhancing the immune response given to us by our Creator.
Cindy is proud of her hard earned certifications as not only a
Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT) established in 2009
but as an Advanced Certified Lymphedema Therapist (CLT)

Cindy has also become proficient in oncology survivor-ship massage therapy. She is a master compression garment fitter and Lymphedema disease related educator/navigator.
