I injured my right shoulder a year or so ago. It pained me to rotate my right arm up very far. I worked with a trigger point massage therapist, an acupuncturist and a healer with only limited improvement in my shoulder.
On the recommendation of a friend, I went to Debra. She combined deep massage techniques with at-home exercises. After three sessions, my range of motion without pain increased. Now, a few months later, I have a full range of motion without pain; both shoulders are the same.
Debra’s massages and home care exercises continue to keep my body’s nerves and muscles functioning smoothly. She brings a breadth of experience and techniques each time I visit her to keep my body in optimum shape. I recommend her highly to you.
Deborah has proven to be an excellent massage therapist for my family. My 90 year old in-laws rave about her extraordinarily powerful hands, while my 20 year old son compliments her ability to know just the right spots. I myself enjoy her personal coaching—bringing attention to my body’s own wisdom. We all feel blessed when experiencing the gifts she brings through massage.
As I age, my boomer’s body has been developing a number of aches and pains. I first went to her about an injured shoulder. It had been sore for a year and I could not raise my arm over my head. A few sessions brought remarkable improvement that is lasting. No rotator cuff surgery! Yeah! Next was the numbness in my fingers, which she alleviated with a combination of her work and my homework.
Her sharing of helpful exercises and encouraging attitude has inspired me to actually come home and consistently do the exercises she recommended. She has an amazing comprehension of how the body works and is very willing to share her knowledge with me so that I can take better care of myself.
Deborah Swan is not only a great masseuse and a caring person, but also a great adviser for bodily health. When I come to her with problems my body is having, she always has a great suggestion for what can help. I greatly appreciate her level of care and expertise.
Of all the massages I’ve had over my nearly 60 years, I think your work is very unique. You’re comfortable and down to earth and somehow the effect of your work goes deeper than a “feel good” massage. I sense you are working on larger muscle patterns and fascia. While youre working on me, you often come up with suggestions that I can use at home, or a mind/body connection I may not have been aware of. I like your curiosity and creativity. You bring so many gifts to the table!
