Cynthia Gardella

A graduate of the Ocean Massage Institute, Cynthia become a State Certified Instructor in 1989, and went on to teach at OMI for five years. During this time Cynthia also worked with a variety of clients, including several chiropractors, generous teachers who helped broaden her understanding of body mechanics.


Passionate about helping people, Cynthia knew she wanted to further her therapeutic expertise. In 1996, she enrolled in a Princeton-based training program headed by the esteemed Dr. Robert Lerner. The program focused on both the Vodder and Foldi methods of Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD). After weeks of rigorous training, Cynthia received her certification as a Complete Decongestive Physiotherapist, and is now one of only a few MLD practitioners in the area.


Having grown up in Rumson, Cynthia has long ties to the community. Both her parents and grandparents were local business owners. In 1995, she jumped at the chance to establish Rumson Therapeutic & Sports Massage Center at 16 West River, a charming Victorian house she remembers visiting as a child.


A veritable font of information on healing therapies, Cynthia is happy to answer your questions and connect clients with the perfect massage therapist. Call her for a consultation, or to schedule an appointment.
