"As a medical doctor and scientist, I entered my first qigong treatment session with the trained skepticism of a Western physician. As the session progressed, I was amazingly impressed that through her unique assessment technique, Debra was able to accurately locate and define all of the abnormal areas of functioning throughout my body, some of which only I was aware of and specifically had not shared with any of my doctors. She also located an occult fracture in my left wrist that had occurred many years ago that I had forgotten about because the pain I experience occurs intermittently. I witnessed a significant improvement in physical and cognitive functional capacity, vigor and mood stability. My wife, as well, observed the significant transformation in me at all levels. This is the most wonderful therapeutic experience I have ever received in my life. Indeed, Debra is a very gifted, intuitive healer."
