Debbie chose a career in massage therapy because she enjoys helping people and was fascinated by its positive physical and emotional effects in her own life.
She experienced the benefits of massage while working at a stressful job as a computer network engineer for many years. "Massage helped me to relax and brought about a body/mind awareness that helped me to manage that stress."
Debbie said she experienced the healing results of therapeutic massage from a whiplash injury she suffered in 1996, and carpal tunnel and TMJ she developed during her computer career.
When not working, Debbie enjoys working out, Tai Chi, pilates, biking, hiking, volunteering and spending time with family and friends. Debbie can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or 303-946-5266.
