Testimonials for Debra's Massage:

"I've worked with Debra before, but my massage last night was terrific, providing dramatic and prolonged relief from a severe muscle spasm. Debra is incredibly talented and a wonderful, intuitive healer."   ~ Alisa 7/2014

"5 stars for both Anna’s and Deb’s massage therapy at Shakti! They both combine their unique set of skills and knowledge into a customized treatment that energizes, relaxes, and heals. The QMT Deb gave me was so calming; its effects of feeling more grounded and aware lasted for days. Anna gave me a stimulating massage to loosen and re-align tight muscles and joints. With what Deb and Anna have helped me to realize about my body and its habits, I have a better understanding of my current state of health. In fact, I took what I had learned to my chiropractor and asked him specific questions and raised new issues. His treatments are now more targeted and effective—all thanks to Anna and Deb."  ~ SP 8/2014
