The body as a whole can be improved through regular shiatsu massage. By stimulating the Ki (bio-energy), shiatsu improves circulation and balances internal organs and meridians to enhance your overall health. Reduces tension in the muscles and connective tissue. 

As a Tao Shiatsu Practitioner I have been trained to connect with you and apply the pressure your body needs and wants without discomfort.



Reflexology improves your health through working the reflexes on your feet to optimize health.  Each reflex point relates to a specific part on your body from head to toe.  Relax on our comfy massage table and enjoy the benefits Reflexology has to offer.



What Is Shiatsu

Shiatsu Massage is a form of Japanese massage used to balance the body's energy while releasing muscle tension.  Illness in the body is seen as a disharmony within the body.  This disharmony interrupts the natural flow of energy (Ki) which if not treated can result in physical ailments causing illness.  

Regular shiatsu massages are recommended to improve and maintain health.  Your body will let you know how often you need to come.  

Pressure is applied using thumbs, fingers, knees, elbows and feet.  I believe in  working with your body to apply to right amount of pressure needed.  No pain no gain is not my motto.  

What To Expect During a Shiatsu Massage

Shiatsu massage is performed on a comfortable mat on the floor, however if you are unable to do this we use a massage table.  You will remain fully clothed with no use of oils or lotions throughout this relaxing experience.  Most benefit is gained when you commit to yourself and your health.

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you and highly recommend you to 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 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.

Our son gave us a shiatsu massage for our 4th wedding anniversary. What a wonderful experience. We have been going for the massages ever since on a biweekly basis. There is no doubt that our bodies and mind are healthier because of the regular attention our bodies are receiving. Also we have developed a wonderful relationship with Debbie who is very personable and caring. She sincerely cares about her clients well being.
It would be in your best interest to include Debbie's massage as part of your regular body and mind care!!!!
