On August 8, 2012 we received a wonderful anniversary gift from our son. He had booked an appointment with Pure Heart Shiatsu for a one hour Massage for each of us. What an amazing experience. We had massages before but not like this. While enjoying the massage you feel like you are melting and drifting into space. You may even fall asleep you are so relaxed. We thank our son regularly for introducing us to Debbie and her magic. This treat for ourselves has become a regular monthly part of our schedule.

Thanks Debbie

    of a small number of practitioners offering Traditional Shiatsu in Ottawa. Debbie received her   
    certification in Zen Shiatsu and Reflexology in 2007 from the International Academy of Natural Health  
    Sciences  in Ottawa.

    During her career Debbie has treated an array of clients ranging from children to seniors to athletes and  
    business professionals. Experienced in treating patients with Depression, Anxiety, Parkinson’s and Cerebral  
    Palsy, her clients have found regular Shiatsu treatment to be greatly beneficial in slowing down the
    development of these conditions through balancing the bodies energy and the release of muscle tension. 

    Through her studies of Tao Shiatsu she has come to know the benefit of incorporating Shiatsu techniques 
    into all her practices to connect deeper with the clients needs and to find the root cause of their physical or 
    energetic imbalance. Whether for general relaxation or to address a specific health concern, her goal is to 
    work with each client to improve their health and well being.

    Currently working towards her Level Two Certification at the Toronto and Montreal Sangha Centre for 
    Tao Shiatsu, Debbie continues her life time study through courses and workshops to improve and perfect 
    her technique. The Tao Sangha teachings, founded on Buddhist principles have led Debbie to appreciate 
    the simple gifts in life and to enjoy life to its fullest.

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you and highly recommend you to other potential clients. Since I was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease a year ago and started coming to see you for treatments I can sincerely state that it is one of the things that has helped keep my Parkinson's in check. I have to admit that I was skeptical at first. I find that you are intuitive, very knowledgeable; your treatment is relaxing, soothing, and most of all it works. After a treatment I feel balanced and peaceful. Thank you for helping me and I  look forward now to the next 40+ years of continued good health. Of course only if I get to continue the monthly sessions. Thanks again,

                                Stewart William McLean
