Meet Debbie Romero
Functional rehabilitation specialist using AT and Orthopedic Massage Therapy
Over 20 Years of Experience in Functional Movement Therapies
Debbie began her career with a National Certification in Therapeutic Massage. In 2005, Debbie added Certification in Orthopedic Massage and maintained a full time private practice specializing in injury and surgical rehabilitation of connective tissue (soft tissue, muscle, tendons, ligaments and fascia). From 2010-2012 Debbie became the lead instructor at the Virginia School of Massage, sharing her extensive knowledge of human anatomy and movement. Seeing a need to help people move pain-free in daily activities, Debbie became a Certified Alexander Technique practitioner in 2014.
How we use ourselves in our daily activities can affect our bodies in a positive or negative way (pain, tension, stress). It is in movement where we need to re-educate people on how to use themselves well to remain pain-free and fit. Debbie is passionate about teaching others how to move with ease.
Debbie lives on an organic farm in Central Virginia with her husband of 40 years where she loves to practice Alexander Technique while riding their horses. She has 2 children, both college graduates, and one grandchild.
Why the Alexander Technique?
When was the last time you had a week without muscle or joint pain or tension?
Before you reach for that ibuprofen or aspirin there's something you need to know. There is a pain secret that has been used for decades by some of the biggest names in show business. There are NO DRUGS...NO SURGERY...and it can cut your pain in half, yes HALF, in just a few weeks.
In fact, this pain relieving method is so effective that former Beatles member Paul McCartney is reportedly one of its biggest fans! McCartney has been performing for over 6 decades so you can imagine he has had some aches and pains along the way.
That is why he and other celebrities, including rocker Sting and actor Hugh Jackman, use this method for staging pain-free. This method is known as the Alexander Technique, and if you have not heard of it, you are not alone.
The Alexander Technique is unique
I'm sure in your lifetime you have heard the words "Sit up straight!" but having pain-free posture is not just a matter of "sitting up straight." When your posture is incorrect for your activity, it causes stress on your joints and tension in your muscles. Over time the repetitive stress leads to wear and tear on your joints and muscles, which = PAIN.
The Alexander Technique retrains you to have correct posture for every daily activity, which eliminates the cause of your pain, not just treating the symptom.
Research behind the Alexander Technique was studied 10 years ago in England with over 600 people who suffered from chronic back pain. Participants were able to cut their pain level in half, yes HALF, and they did it in just 6 lessons!
In just a few sessions, you will gain the tools to make healthy posture changes that will last a lifetime.
There are plenty of YouTube videos about the Alexander Technique, but the best way to achieve pain-free living is with hands on guidence by a Certified Alexander Technique teacher.
