Massage therapist opens Gardnerville office

by Linda Hiller, Staff Writer

Former massage clients of Cynthia Davis Overacker, your aches and pains are over.

The therapeutic massage therapist has landed her new business, Cosmic Massage, in Gardnerville and wants all those special clients to know that she is still at your service to provide the best massage care for your aching body in her new location.

“I just want my clients from ClubSpa to know where I am,” Overacker said. “It closed so fast, we didn’t get a chance to let our clients know.”

Within Overacker’s therapeutic massage she offers myopathic muscular therapy, myofascial release, sheng zhen wuji yuan gong medical oigong, acupressure, Swedish massage, Reiki, biofeedback therapy, breathing exercises and relaxation techniques.

A respiratory therapist for 25 years, Overacker decided to change to a more uplifting occupation eight years ago and went into massage therapy.

While a respiratory therapist, Overacker wrote a book on breathing exercises for children with Duchennes muscular dystrophy.

She said much of her work as a massage therapist involves helping people in concert with their chiropractic treatment.

Overacker said she particularly enjoys helping clients with stress reduction in the neck and shoulder area.

“That’s where we hold our stress,” she said. “Usually, after an hour with me, we can work through the knots and stresses in those areas, and my clients walk out relaxed.”

Overacker, 48, is a single mother with two children, Jeff Davis, 19, and Tricia Davis, 16, a student at Carson High School. The kids enjoy snowboarding, she said, and camping is a popular activity when time allows.

Overacker divides her massage time between Harrah’s on weekends and Cosmic Massage Tuesdays through Thursdays, 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. by appointment.

Cosmic Massage is located at 1524 Highway 395, Suite 2, in Gardnerville. For more information, call her at 783-1127 or 887-1523.
