“After more than 40 years of intense racquetball, jogging, skiing, and meniscus operations on both knees, I decided that to continue these activities it was time to have a right knee replacement. My symptoms were constant pain, weakness and stiffness in the right knee. Debra suggested that my knee problems might be helped through more focused stretching and massage therapy in my leg muscles. Debra designed a series of exercises to stretch and strengthen my right leg and through HER targeted massage therapy, she has softened and relaxed tightness and cramping that I had previously experienced. I committed to do the daily program she designed. Two weeks after starting the therapy I was amazed and unbelievably happy that the stiffness and pain were gone. I was able to play raquetball again. Debra has convinced me that there are alternatives to major surgeries. She is a sincere, genuine and very professional therapist and person. I will continue to use her expertise to improve my life and give her my highest possible recommendation.”
