Experience
Bodywork

Craniosacral therapy, Rhytmic deep tissue sculpting, Acupressure, Reiki,

Practicing in the field of bodywork since 1987, my involvement includes bodywork, teaching wellness classes, and publishing related articles, as well as authoring, In Good Hands: A Guide to Seeking and Receiving Massage. Though I specialize in Craniosacral therapy, my repertoire includes: Rhythmic Deep Tissue Sculpting, Acupressure, myo-fascial release, Reiki and more. My work is delivered with quality of touch and presence with every client. Each modality can stand alone, or be combined. I hold a National Certification with National Certification for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB), and I am a member of Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals (abmp), of which continued education is required. I am interested in growing my knowledge by working with each client, particularly those clients who have not had results elsewhere. I work with all ages, and numerous conditions such as: PTSD and other anxiety conditions, TMD, migraines, and other head and jaw issues, Parkinsons, Multiple Sclerosis and other conditions involving the nervous system, chronic tension and pain in general. It is satisfying work to see progress, relief, and hope in peoples lives. Most importantly, I believe all conditions have the potential for positive change, and have witnessed it many times.

Debra takes the time to know you and your body. She is attentive to your needs and problem areas while also making sure you are comfortable. She understands that massage is a give and take process, combined with her knowledge of different health modalities and body workings, making for an enjoyable and effective experience.
