Debora Torkington, HHP

Debora Torkington has been licensed as a Holistic Health Practitioner with the City of San Diego since 1986. She is a graduate of the International Professional School of Bodywork (IPSB) in San Diego and a member of the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA). She has over 25 years of experience in various massage therapies, including Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue Massage and others.

Debora is certified with the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork (NCTBMB), the Belavi Institute for Facelift Massage, the International Institute of Reflexology and has studied CranioSacral Therapy extensively with the Upledger Institute and the Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy Association of North America.

Debora's specialty is using a combination of subtle energy therapies such as Craniosacral Therapy and Trauma Healing to relieve pain and tension while improving stability, flexibility and range of motion (Please see the Services page for more information). These "somatic" modalities help release stuck energies and fear-based responses to old traumas, so that new thought and behavior patterns can be learned and practiced by the mind and body. Through repetition, these techniques can help calm over-stressed nervous systems while increasing sensory and somatic awareness. Clients gain skills and experience for trauma resolution and nervous system regulation, improving overall health and resilience.
