Debra blends a variety of modalities to customize each session in which she facilitates with sensitivity, skill, and intuition while respecting the individual’s pain tolerance, the body-minds timing for releasing, and it's contribution of self healing. Her modalities include Craniosacral therapy, Rhythic Deep Tissue Sculpting, acupressure, Swedish, Reiki, and others. Quality of presence and touch are the essence that deliver her modalities for each customized session.

In addition to Bodywork, Debra publishes articles on body-mind topics, and  has authored: In Good Hands: A Guide to Seeking and Receiving Massage.  She has also taught the MELT Method, tai chi, qigong, and other topics related to self-care, transformation, and empowerment.

I have been in the field of bodywork since 1987. Over the years, my involvement in the field, along with bodywork, has included: teaching wellness classes and publishing related articles, as well as authoring, In Good Hands: A Guide to Seeking and Receiving Massage. While specializing in Craniosacral therapy, I also customize other modalities mentioned above. Each modality can stand alone, or be combined. As an ongoing member of American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA) from 1987-2015, and now with Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals (abmp), continued education is required, keeping learning on-going and current. I am interested in challenging my modalities with those clients who have not had results elsewhere. I have worked with all ages, and am especially good with PTSD and various states of anxiety. I believe all conditions have a change for positive change.

Debra took the time to talk with me about my needs and desires and designed my massage based on those needs and desires. I liked the fact that she preferred not to be chatty during the massage. I felt that increased her focus and mine on the body work and the affect it was having on me.
