About Cyndi

I like to let my clients know they are in good hands.  Here are some details regarding my educational background.  These links will also help you figure out what all those letters mean that I have behind my name!  Please feel free to click on the links for more information, as well as mission statements and ethics for each association to which I belong.

I received my Bachelor's of Science in Exercise Physiology/Kinesiology with an emphasis in Sports Medicine and Athletic Training at the University of Georgia System.  Then I followed up at Georgia State with my Therapy degree.  My "first career" was as a Hippotherapist, using physical therapy and the horses movements to facilitate change in special populations.  Since then, I have worked with the New York Giants, the Molson Beach Volley Ball Team, before beginning my rehabilitative therapy clinic as Cyndi Allison here in Beaufort, in 1990.   At that time, I opened Hands on Healing.  In 1993, I saw a need for more trained therapist in the area and opened the Southeastern School for Holistic Touch.  I married and my last name became Allison-Crowley, I ran my practices and taught for 5 years.  Changing the name of my practice to LowCountry Wellness Center to incorporate both offices.  After the birth of my two children, Trey and Allison,  I decided to focus on my practice and family.  In 2007, I changed my name to Cynthia Allison.  My children and I attend the Parish Church of St. Helena, where I am on the Vestry for Mission and Outreach and in charge of Parish Church Women.  We live on 6 acres which we have named Edenhope Farms.  Five years ago, we started raising free range chickens and since then have added Zebu cattle,  ducks and peacocks.  We sell our eggs, mainly to my patients, and enjoy the fruits of their labor as well.

Certifications include:  Nationally Certified by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage, Licensed by the state of South Carolina, and Internationally Certified by the International Massage & Somatic Therapy Council (IMSTCC) and Certified by the national athletic trainers association.  Memberships include the Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals group,   American Massage Therapy Association, and the National Christian Massage Therapist Association.

My massage credentials were earned at the Atlanta School of Massage.  Due to yearly continuing education requirements and a strong degree to always be learning, I have become certified in numerous specialties of which you can read about on the Range of Practice link.   I am current in my certification and licensing requirements.

I am also trained as a Stephen Minister.  A Stephen Minister is:

  • A lay person, man or woman (dedicated and devoted to the Church) who through training learns skills and develops his/her gifts for bringing Christ's healing love to people who are experiencing other stresses in life.

  • A caring and sharing person (strongly, committed to their faith as expressed by their worship with and through the church) who reaches out a supporting hand to the spiritual, social, and emotional needs of our community.

Associated Bodyworkers & Massage Professionals


 I feel that Christ called me to this career. God guided me thru school, helped me to start up my business and sends just the right clients to me.  For me, massage is not just a profession, but also a ministry, my faith and work are inseparable.  What never ceases to amaze me is how in the midst of a session the Spirit will guide my client to share that they are a believer, or that they need prayer in some way.  As a Christian, I seek to exhibit Christ-likeness, both personally and professionally, especially as it pertains to my integrity.   I maintain my business in such a way that it is clear that I know that God is in control of all.  I am nothing without God's help. Whenever a client "raves" about my magical hands, I tell them it is not me, but God the Creator.  Whenever I talk about my practice, I make it perfectly clear that God has blessed me, that I am not "lucky" as to my office location, etc..
