Deb O'Connor



Deb is an energy medicine practitioner  and fascial stretch therapist who is also a daughter, friend, co-worker, employer, caregiver, and mom, all of which involve helping those around her with a myriad of emotional, psychological, and physical challenges. Her background includes more than 15 years of extensive work in home healthcare and hospice. This career path inspired her studies in alternative therapies including energy medicine and fascial stretch therapy.  She is committed to practicing and sharing these favorites. She believes in a multimodal healing approach, choosing to combine one or more modes of healing when working with each individual to reach the best result for them. Her approach includes Eden Energy Medicine and FST stretching, a technique that incorporates both passive and active assisted stretching to improve range of motion, release tension, and open energy pathways within the physical body. She is the developer of a successful protocol to open sinuses and relieve pressure, as well as decrease symptoms of seasonal allergies and eliminate headaches. She is eager to help those interested in seeking to add a non-Western modality to help increase their health, wellness, and vitality.
