“The techniques that you
demonstrated last weekend have been a BIG hit so far. I have gone back
to work with a renewed enthusiasm. One client said, 'You were a good
massage therapist before, but the stuff you did today bumped you up at
least three rungs on the ladder.' Thank you for all the wonderful demos
and the great table-side instruction. I hope to attend another of your
workshops sometime in the near future.

|Client Experience Team
For fifteen years, Debra kept the
companies with which she worked healthy by using her expertise in
creating spectacular customer experiences. However, the 60-hour weeks
this former Fortune 250 executive invested in her career had an adverse
effect on her own wellbeing: she became an overworked insomniac on the
brink of a health crisis.
Motivated by her desire to create a company in the massage industry
that would help therapists extend their careers, she co-partnered with
Eric to launch imassage, Inc. and Success From the Start: Business Skills for Massage
Therapists with F.A. Davis Publishing.
Never staying still for long and fueled by a desire to make a
difference in the world by bringing more awareness to natural health
options, Debra created a television show titled Journey into
Wellbeing which includes some of the world's leading health
experts and wellness sanctuaries. The pilot episode premiered February
19, 2013 on PBS
stations nationwide and can be watched 24/7.
Never resting for long, her latest endeavor is Well World Group, a firm
focused on helping wellness
businesses craft and deliver flawless customer experiences and she is
in the process of launching Well
World Productions, a full-service video and promotion company that
“brings inspiring stories to life and shares them with the World.”
