Educational Background

I have been a licensed massage therapist since 2003 with over 500 hours of continuing education in Thai bodywork.

I am very grateful to my teacher Nephyr Jacobsen for her compassion, inquisitive mind and fun nature but most of all her dedication in seeking out authentic information and teachings. Nephyr is an invaluable resource for Traditional Thai Medicine and continues to be my mentor and teacher guiding my path as an instructor.

Deborah’s teachers include Allison Longstreth Lurie, David Weitzer, Nephyr Jacobsen, Dr. Pierce Salguero, Pichest Boonthumme, Reusi Dat ton with David Wells as well as Thai and Lanna medicine with Tevijjo Yogi through the Naga Center.

Deborah’s Thai massage journey began in 2005.  The next year she traveled to Thailand with Nephyr where Deborah met one of her current teachers.  This experience expanded her study of Thai massage as a physical therapy within Traditional Thai Medicine and fueled her dedication for ongoing learning.
