Debra is a miracle worker! This is lengthy but so worth reading. In short, I had multiple things going but Debra, the massage detective, was the key to my relief. I was having problems with my hips, shoulders and neck. I had knots the size of peas and gum balls in my shoulder blades and neck. I went to my chiropractor who made an adjustment to my hips which were out of alignment and adjusted my back and neck. My hips were back to normal, but I continued with shoulder and neck pain. I went for a second adjustment and my chiropractor told me it probably was not skeletal and at this point muscular. I went to a massage therapist and it felt really good but it was not enough relief, so I went to my general doctor who prescribed me with anti-inflammatories and told me to take it easy and apply cold/hot packs as needed. Another week goes by and I am in such severe pain it was debilitating. I went back to the doctor because I had severe pain and my left arm was going numb, so my doctor sent me to the emergency room immediately to ensure I wasn’t having a heart attack. I wasn’t my heart. They gave me pain killers and a heavy dose of anti-inflammatories because my muscles were so tight, and nerves were being pinched. After about 20 minutes my muscles calmed down to where I was no longer in severe pain and could go home. I was prescribed more pain killers and anti-inflammatories to last another week and in less than a week the pain started coming back so my doctor had an MRI done on my neck and referred me to a neuro surgeon. My spinal column is slightly smaller than it should be in one spot from birth. I couldn’t wait to see a neurosurgeon because the pain was coming back so out of desperation, I called Dreamscape Massage. I have never felt desperate before and here I was desperate and highly emotional. Debra’s patience, sympathy and detectives ear listened to everything I had gone through and was able to help me calm down. She used several techniques to break up the tension; some I had never experienced before. One technique I was skeptical, but it turned out to be the one that gave the biggest relief. As she was working on me, she asked me to run her through my daily/weekly routine and it was then when we identified areas that could be causing most of my problems. Debra gave me a couple of easy exercises to help strengthen and stretch the muscles that continuously cause me issues. She told me I might have to come back a few more times but if I followed her instructions it shouldn’t take more than a couple of times. I went to her in June once! Now it is September and I am going because I am a little stiff but it is really to pamper myself. I highly recommend her because she is a great problem solver and does everything she can to bring relief to her clients. You can tell she gets a lot of enjoyment and satisfaction from helping her clients. She is honest and caring. She can apply a light or heavy touch depending on your preference. As long as you communicate with her, telling her what you like and don’t like, she can adjust to fit your needs. I have been to several different massage therapists in NH, MA and FL but never anyone as good as her. My husband has Parkinson’s and is often very stiff, so I had him go see Debra and he says he has never been to anyone as good as her either. You won’t be disappointed.…

Debra is amazing! She doesn’t just go through the motions of a basic massage. She feels where you are tight and in pain and really works through it. She goes above and beyond what a basic massage should be!
