Massage is therapy for your mind, body, and soul.

While living in New Port Ritchey, Florida in 2004 I stumbled upon Bene's International School of Massage not far from my house. Having a bit of basic knowledge as to what therapeutic massage was, I decided to go in and look into what the program offered. Needless to say 10 minutes later I was signing a $10,000 contract and decided then and there that I was going to become a Massage Therapist. From the beginning it just felt right.

While living in New Port Ritchey, Florida in 2004 I stumbled upon Bene's International School of Massage not far from my house. Having a bit of basic knowledge as to what therapeutic massage was, I decided to go in and look into what the program offered. Needless to say 10 minutes later I was signing a $10,000 contract and decided then and there that I was going to become a Massage Therapist. From the beginning it just felt right. Back then I was recently widowed and found that massage therapy healed my broken heart. Here we are 11 years later and honestly I still love the work that I do. 

After graduating from Bene's International School of Massage in 2004, I went on to become Nationally Certified as a Licensed Massage Therapist by the NCBTMB National Certification Board of Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork. I currently hold a Massachusetts Therapeutic Massage License and have been actively practicing Massage Therapy professionally since 2005. 

In early 2013 I found myself wanting to do more. This time I found Elizabeth Grady school of Aesthetics in Medford, MA. Again it only took a short 10 minutes to realize that this too was what I wanted to do. By October of 2013 I had graduated and become a Massachusetts Licensed Aesthetician. It was just a good fit for me.  

Over the last 10 years I have worked as a Massage Therapist in both a clinical hospital setting as well as for a couple of the local massage franchises. I have built a strong and loyal client base that keeps me busy. Recently I decided that I no longer wanted to work with the "membership required" businesses. Massage isn't a requirement it is a choice. Far too often I would see a perspective client who would leave my table relaxed and stress free. Upon checking out at the front desk, the sales associates would pitch the membership contract deal before the client even had time to adjust their eyes to the light. Of course I would love to see every client return month after month as a benefit to their overall health. Massage has so much to offer a person with regard to their personal well being. I simply just don't believe that you should be bullied or convinced to sign a membership contract that commits you to returning monthly. Life happens enjoy it and then come see me when you need me. You can find me at my new massage studio: Blue Stone Massage and Skin Care at 228 Central St. Saugus, MA 01906.

At the present time I am seeking a Professional Reiki program so that I can add it to my service menu. I am finding that I am happiest when I am helping others to feel good about themselves. I know my limits and realize that though I will never heal anyone, at the very least I can honestly make them feel better simply with the touch of my caring hands.    

Thanks for taking the time to read about me.

REVIEWS for my Skincare or Bodywork services

by Meredith on Jun 13
Debbie is an excellent massage therapist that truly cares about her clients and tailors each massage to individual client needs. She is professional, yet personable, and highly skilled - one of the best massages and overall experiences I've had in years. After my first 90 min deep tissue massage, I knew immediately I would be a regular client. I highly recommend Debbie and Blue Stone Massage.

She made me feel very comfortable, and I love that i wasn't rushed out, usually when I get a massage it feels like it goes by so fast it was so relaxing and she really knows what she's doing it was AMAZING can't wait till next month.
