    Cindy has worked for the past 26 years in the field of physical therapy with a focus on outpatient orthopedics, sports rehab, and aquatic therapy. Cindy has extensive knowledge in manual physical therapy, being trained in IASTM, Cupping, Dry Needling, and various Soft Tissue Massage and Joint Mobilization/Manipulation Techniques. She has been featured in Radio, TV, and Print, speaking on the topics of back pain, aquatic therapy, and ACL rehabilitation. Throughout her career she has presented several classes to patients in how to treat their own backs, pre-natal back care, and instructed other clinicians in the development of their own aquatic therapy program.

    Cindy has three active boys who all play soccer; she is actively involved in the local travel soccer program serving as Co-President of the Highlander Soccer Club. She is an avid runner, running several half marathons and two full marathons, the Disney Marathon and the Boston Marathon. Through her many years of training, she has learned even more about the management of soft tissue injury and expediting recovery, to reduce the fear of injury and having confidence in finishing those big races! Cindy also maintains a balance of running with flexibility and strengthening by participating in classes at local yoga, barre and crossfit gyms.

    “It is so important to keep active, stay flexible and try to maintain a healthy weight in whatever way you can with the time you have. I want to be around to see my grandchildren and hopefully my great grandchildren, so I will do whatever I need to to help make that happen!”

Certified Hand Therapist

  • Heather Mogielnicki
    OT/L, CHT

    From the age of 10 Heather only wanted to be a professional flutist.  Her focus and dedication to her instrument led her to receive her BFA in flute performance from SUNY Purchase in 1991.  She went on to freelance work and was on her way to California to do studio work.  However, her hours and hours of practicing/performing led to some career altering injuries.  She herself was a patient of a hand therapist which sparked her next passion of helping others with injuries to recover.  She then went on to obtain a BS in Occupational Therapy from the University of Hartford in 1998.  Heather spent  17 years working at UCONN Health Center in their Hand Therapy department and Musician’s Clinic…..combing her two passions……hand trauma/injuries and Music.  Heather is a member of the American Society of Hand Therapists, has published multiple book reviews for the Journal of Hand Therapy and has co-authored research studies during her time at the health center. Besides being a hand geek, she is a mom of a 13 year old soccer and X-Box obsessed boy and an 11 year old dance obsessed girl…….spending many hours on the field and in the dance studio!  Heather loves to run with her four legged best friends and stay active…..”being active is so important as we age, if we want to keep moving and living it’s so important to stay healthy!”
