Cindy Battino, ACSM, CCS
A History of Helping and Teaching
Brennan Science Healing Practitioner, certified life coach, dancer, Reiki worker, personal trainer, speaker, author, life changer; these are just a few words to describe Cindy Battino.
Cindy officially began her career 26 years ago. Unofficially, she doesn’t remember a time in her life when she did not consider the energy within and all that her mind and body could accomplish. She learned to do full-body pushups as a child, and danced professionally until the age of 21.
Cindy then began a career in fitness as an aerobics instructor and became a personal trainer. Her work included instructing other personal trainers in anatomy, physiology, and kinesiology. She also held a position as a high school training and conditioning coach in Northern Virginia.
Cindy’s philosophy is one of encouraging a positive intentional life for her clients. So, her next logical step was to explore how to get personal balance back when life seems to throw up roadblocks.
In 2003 Cindy began learning energy work. After four years of intensive study, she became a Brennan Healing Science Practitioner, earning her Bachelor of Science degree. She is certified as a second-degree Reiki worker. Cindy studied with Mietek Wirkus and has completed his advanced classes on bio-energy. Mr. Wirkus was one of the first professional bio-energy therapists employed by a medical center to complement the work of physicians.
She then founded Transformational Healing, relocating her practice to Middleburg, Virginia in 2011. Cindy sees clients in her Northern Virginia office. In addition, she runs workshops and offers group work, Skype, and phone sessions.
As a successful energy practitioner she has the ability to assist people to discover the true self. Her talent lies in the ability to identify defenses, fear, wounds, and scars. She has true compassion for each individual’s ordeals. Cindy helps clients discover their truth in a safe environment filled with compassion, love, and acceptance.

In Your Words
“Working with Cindy and her Flowing Thru The Funk program, I made small lifestyle changes that demonstrated immediate results. Over a period of 8 weeks, I lost 15 pounds and have established a maintainable exercise and nutrition regime that works for me and my family. An unexpected bonus was the spiritual aspect of Cindy’s energy practice which has enabled me to work through personal challenges with “new eyes” and a positive perspective.” - Susan S.
“Connecting to the universe is a part of travelling the path to higher self. Cindy's central role in this journey has been to help me see more clearly, feel more deeply, and trust more completely. She is an energy worker, but so, so much more. I am very blessed to be working with her. It has been a life-altering and energizing experience. “ – Mary U.
