You haven't got time for the Pain! and......Nothing is impossible with God!

I have lived in the Big Valley most of my life, though have spent time abroad.  I always knew I wanted to help others.  My initial goal was to be a nurse--but found, after being in the program at Fresno State, that this wasn't my calling.  I ended up getting my Master's in Special Education, in which I worked for 18 years--8 of those in Germany, for the Department of Defense Dependent Schools.  I then became engaged and moved to Florida.  When that didn't take, I found a job as a Vocational E...

I have lived in the Big Valley most of my life, though have spent time abroad.  I always knew I wanted to help others.  My initial goal was to be a nurse--but found, after being in the program at Fresno State, that this wasn't my calling.  I ended up getting my Master's in Special Education, in which I worked for 18 years--8 of those in Germany, for the Department of Defense Dependent Schools.  I then became engaged and moved to Florida.  When that didn't take, I found a job as a Vocational Evaluator for the disabled, which I did for about 4 1/2 years, until my Dad passed away--when I knew it was time to return to California to be near family.  I taught for a few years, and worked for a local hospital foundation.  I then worked as an administrator for three residential homes for the developmentally disabled, for 7 years.  So, this is my 4th career!  I'm returning to my medical roots, as a Medical Massage therapist.  I am loving the wide range of learning opportunities in this field, and I can't get enough!  My goal is to find out whatever is most effective and learn how to do it as well as possible, so I can help bring relief to those in pain.  I believe that God has led me on this journey, and I am happy to be His instrument for as long as He wishes!

Most certainly I would give Debbie a 5+. I suffer from Fibromyalgia and she is a lifesaver. Her knowledge and experience exceeds most therapists as she continues to take classes to learn different types of message. An outstanding medical massage therapist I depend on.

Really looking forward to my next visit. My pain/stress was GREATLY reduced. I’ve already told my husband that he could trust Debra and should make an appointment. I was sent to Debra by my Pain Management Doctor who had personally used her after an auto accident with great results.

I’m always greeted with a smile and if I have any concern areas. Debra massaged my right knee and I was able to walk out with a straighter leg. I am so relaxed during my massage I have fallen sleep. Great!
