"Cynthia gave me my life back.  Not that I didn't have a life, it just wasn't a fun life.  Probably the most positive and compassionate pain coach out there!  I didn't recognize myself after learning my "Pain-Free Formula".  Cynthia taught me how to practice self-care and take time for daily mindfulness so I could enjoy the life I deserve after 10+ years of chronic back pain.

Thanks for everything!"


P.B. from Ohio, August 16, 2023

"I've been working with her for the past 2 months and her program is AMAZING. It narrowed down my pain-point issue and I've made amazing strides in changing how chronic pain affects my life. I feel like I can do something about it and lessen the pain and even strengthen the belief that I can overcome it! She is very affordable. She is an angel. Truly. Thank you Cynthia Austin!!!"

Rebbeca Wertz from Colorado, August 4, 2023

"I recommend Cindy to anyone looking for a pain management partner.

She balances education, empathy, and jointly developed goal setting to make you feel like you're not facing your pain alone. I felt each session was well designed - a good balance of structured learning with enough flexibility to accommodate spontaneous topics / introspection. Over the course of our sessions, we discussed various tools / strategies and ran experiments together while monitoring their effectiveness.


I feel more confident and capable after having Cindy as my pain coach and I understand my pain a whole lot better, which amounts to a net reduction in pain and a better quality of life for me. Cindy was a pleasure to work with and I always found her accessible despite my busy work schedule and the different time zones. Highly recommend!"
