The Cynde Story
A number of years ago, Cynde was in a car accident that left her with severe neck, back and arm injuries resulting in Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, a chronic pain syndrome. Her experience sparked a special interest in chronic pain management without drugs. Cynde became certified as both a Fibromyalgia practitioner and a Thoracic Outlet Syndrome practitioner.
Cynde also obtained a Master’s Degree focusing on reproductive physiology. Her interest and love of all things baby, and her training as a hypnotherapist, led her to the wonderful Hypnobabies® Childbirth Hypnosis program.
As a Childbirth Education Instructor, she began looking into early communication with babies and discovered that various baby sign language programs were available. She found the amazing Baby Signs® Program. This program was the answer for her. As a doctor, it was important that it was developed by doctors and backed by solid research.
Research shows that teaching hearing babies sign language, thus helping them to communicate their needs, wants, and interests before their speech centers are developed, creates a greater bond within the family and a wonderful head start on their language skills. Having this solid early foundation in language skills increases their likelihood of developing strong reading and academic skills as they reach school age.
Combining her extensive medical background and multiple certifications, Cynde Gardner founded Bright Paths to help people of all ages to learn, create wellness, and live pain-free, naturally.
