Testimonials for Anna's Massage:

"Hi Anna, just wanted to thank you again for the fabulous massage last week and all the helpful tips relating to my specific problem areas... I really feel that it was my best massage experience ever... " ~ Joann F. 7/2014

"I highly recommend Anna’s myofascial release massage to anyone who is a regular yoga practitioner, athlete, or gym rat or anyone dealing with pain or stiffness. My shoulders have always been tight and tricky from an old injury for many years. Anna’s massage opened things up and got things moving immediately. I did 3 sessions and I plan on doing more. This is not your typical massage, in fact, it’s really intense… and I feel the benefits are long lasting. Anna is absolutely wonderful and understands the body in a unique and intuitive way. Just do it. "- I. Wilbanks 11/2018

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

Certified Crystal Practitioner, Certified Sound Healer Owner, Crystalgia LLC

Deborah has an eclectic background. Her journey towards ownership of Crystalgia, a wellness company specializing in vibrational, energetic healing using crystals and sound, started in the 80’s while a student at Smith College in the Pioneer Valley of MA. Though born and raised in NYC, Deborah felt at home in the idyllic setting of Northampton where she learned to nurture her Feminine by exploring Tarot Cards and Astrology as a hobby which complemented pursuing her BA in Sociology. Her interest in alternative philosophies continued into graduate school, albeit on a personal level, to include studies in I Ching, Feng Shui, Runes and Crystals. (These interests were to be the foundation upon which the idea of Crystalgia was conceived).

Deborah’s working career began in advertising at a graphic design firm in NYC where she was a Media Buyer. After her daughter was born in 1994, she moved to NJ where she did a short stint at the YMCA and then moved onto work for Lucent Technologies and then PriceWaterhouseCoopers where she developed her expertise as an expatriate tax consultant in the global arena.

Post retirement, in 2018 Deborah refocused on her philosophical interests and began studies with the Hibiscus Moon Crystal Academy to become a Certified Crystal Practitioner. She also became a Certified Sound Healer under the tutelage of Vicki Gould’s school of Life Changing Energy to enhance and build upon her crystal healing skills. Crystalgia LLC was founded in early 2023.

Acupuncturist & Chinese Herbalist, Sound Healer
Being a healer is a spiritual journey for me, far beyond being a job. As humanity goes through a great shift in consciousness, I feel blessed to be a part of that reaching for a more compassionate world. I am a practitioner of Chinese medicine and treat through a combination of acupuncture, herbal medicine, essential oils and sound therapy. I work to not only resolve any imbalance in the body, but to help you understand the download that hides behind the dis-ease. From the perspective of this tradition, any physical or emotional suffering we experience is always directly linked to our relationship to change, and the natural world, whose movements reveal the way to our own liberation. I believe that all pain is a calling to return home, to be present for what the movement of life itself wishes to awaken within us.

I received my training at the Eastern School of Acupuncture and Traditional Medicine, where I completed my Master in Acupuncture degree, and additionally completed my certification in Chinese herbology. After receiving my degree, I felt, and still feel, called to go ever deeper with my studies. I have specialized in psycho-spiritual healing, focusing primarily on the treatment of trauma because of its inextricable connection to the ascension process. I mainly offer esoteric and 5 element style acupuncture, consciously working with the etheric and astral bodies.

My knowledge comes not only from my own studies, experience and mentorship, but also from the world of plant medicine and shamanic healing. I currently continue my training in sound therapy with the Acutonics Institute of Integrative Medicine in New Mexico. This medicine involves the use of planetary frequencies and archetypal psychology to illuminate imprisoning thought patterns, open the heart, and remind us of the truth of who we are as creators…and the created, within the divine dream of life.

It would be an honor to work in spirit with you as your healer, to be a gentle guide, and loving ear as you navigate the ups and downs of life.

Natalie offers the following: Acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Medicine, Esoteric Acupuncture, and Sound Healing wtih Tuning Forks
