Prenatal Massage

I started seeing Deborah at the start of my second trimester, and have continued to do so throughout my pregnancy on a consistent weekly basis. I honestly can't say enough great things about her- she's a warm, genuinely lovely person with a very calming manner (which I've really appreciated throughout some of my more volatile hormonal spells!), and even more importantly she has really helped me navigate through some really unpleasant physical symptoms that I wrestled with throughout this process. A big for instance here: I had debilitating problems with sciatic pain towards the end of the second trimester, which Deborah really nipped in the bud for me. Game changer. I see her at our house (but I believe she also has an office space which she works out of) and she has a pregnancy form for her massage table- again, game changer, particularly for pre-pregnancy tummy sleepers like myself! In brief, she's been a huge help throughout my pregnancy.


During my pregnancy the massage I got from Deborah Slater was so soothing. I was having a lot of back and feet pain from the weight I gained and she made it all go away in a one hour session. I was completely relaxed and rejuvenated afterwards. I've been to franchise places for a massage and nothing compares to the experience I get with Deborah. I highly recommend choosing her for massage therapy. She even has a special pregnancy table that is comfortable and helped me relax even more.


Therapeutic Massage/ Jin Shin Jyutsu

I have been going to Deborah for massages for a number of years. She has the perfect combination of strength and sensitivity. Deborah adjusts her touch based on my needs that day and always seems to know the techniques and firmness I need, never too heavy, never too light.

Deborah's warm, easy-going personality is also a delight, whether you like to chat during your massage or you prefer to quietly melt into the table.

I have had massages from more than a dozen different therapists over the years, and Deborah is my favorite. I highly recommend her as a therapist and she is a wonderful person.

I just wanted to write you a quick note of thanks for the amazingly effective massage / Jin Shin Jyutsu treatment you gave me recently. As I mentioned, I've seen every kind of medical practitioner under the sun since my 1991 car accident, including more than a few handfuls of massage therapists, and your treatment was the best. Thank you!


I feel GREAT! So relaxed and my neck stopped hurting! Thanks so much Deborah!


Amazing session yesterday with Jin Shin. I got on the scale this morning and have lost 2.6 pounds in one day. I must have been carrying 2.6 in water in my system. Also, my ankles and ankle bones are back this morning. What a relief! Thank you so much for seeing me on such short notice.


I first started seeing Deborah about a year ago. I was tense and didn't have a lot of energy. Deborah started with weekly massage. It was very effective but I was also having a lot of pain from an arthritic condition (tendonitis of the elbow) so, Deborah started Jin Shin Jyutusu. I've been having weekly therapy and the results have been remarkable. When we started I was taking 3 pills a day to control the swelling. Today the pain is almost gone and I may take 2 pills a week for swelling. Sometimes I can go for two weeks. I feel 100% better and can do things I've not been able to do for 4 years.


"The most wonderful gift I've ever received", I told my daughter after my first session with Deborah. I truly felt so much better after what had been many months of moving, health problems, and stress. In fact, I felt so good I immediately signed up for a continuing series of massages and each one is a real treat. Thank you Deborah.

Deborah has been practicing Jin Shin Jyutsu on me with amazing results. She was recommended to me by my chiropractor, Dr Ava Yellen, because of some long term discomfort I was experiencing. Deborah's skill with Jin Shin has had such positive effects that I am devoted to the art and to her and am a regular client.

Soon, I introduced my husband to Deborah and we have been steady consumers of many of her skills since. We have had excellent massages, soothing Reiki and craniosacral work that we don't begin to understand, but recognize as comforting relief.

Deborah is professional, kind and intelligent. She has good judgement and is as well versed in what not to do as she is in what to do. After many years of receiving massage therapies of all kinds, my husband and I are rather choosy about who works on us. Deborah is a shining example of what we are looking for.


Quantum Touch workshops and sessions

I haven't met a more compassionate and caring healer than Deborah Slater. I had the good fortune of attending her Quantum Touch workshop.. she is an amazing instructor who is easy to understand and her passion for healing really shines through. I will wholeheartedly and confidently recommend Deborah to my friends and family. - Nick

Thank you for your presentation, “Quantum Touch.” on March 14, 2012. Judging by audience interaction, the program was a success. We are always delighted when programs are well received by the audience.

We look forward to working with you again in the future. If you have any questions or ideas you’d like to share with us regarding future programs, please forward them to me via email.

Sincerely, Gail

The last session seemed to really turn a corner for me. I am so glad I found you and I really can only compare it to stumbling upon a treasure chest of amazing tools! I appreciate your help so much. I feel confident that I can continue the progress with the things you have shared with me I have been able to do things that I would not have previously and it makes me so happy! Trent and I both agree that every penny and the time spent with you has been the best so far in our journey. Thank you SO much! I really wanted to thank you and let you know that the sessions have been amazing. I just feel that you have done so much extra beyond the Quantum Touch and Jin Shin Jyutsu for me and so if I can ever help in any way, please let me know. I don't know if you have reviews on google or anything like that, but I am a very happy satisfied client! Thanks!


As an instructor, Deborah is very knowledgeable, warm and gracious. I feel that she is so very qualified to teach this class as it is very obvious that she continually works on her spiritual growth. She exudes this in her energy. I truly loved the class.


This was one of the most informative and loving workshops I have taken. What a pleasure to be taught by Deborah.
