I am so blessed to have discovered Bodytalk in 2009 and believe me it was purely happenstance; one of those leap of faith moments. It is a life changer and I hope that someday everyone will be able to experience the invaluable healing nature of this powerful holistic modality.
Peace and be well,
What are people saying about Bodytalk with Debra?
That Body Talk business is very interesting. I've been thinking about it and I have to tell you it really seemed to pull me together! I had been feeling sort of blah and out of sync, couldn't get my act together at all, everything was a major operation. Then by Mon. and especially Tues., little by little I began to feel really good! I thought of Body Talk then because I couldn't put my finger on it, but it was as though I was beginning to feel like my old self. I had simply lost my energy and was getting it back again! Anyhow, thanks!

I have suffered with sciatic pain for several years. This year it was becoming debilitating. I was living on around the clock over-the-counter pain medication. Since I began my sessions with Debra, I have significantly reduced the amount of medication I need to take just to function. After a session, not only do I feel peaceful and calm, I also have the energy and drive to work on my to do list.

I have had several sessions with DCDBodytalk. Deb is a very gentle and kind healer. Two sessions stand out in my mind that demonstrate her innate ability as a practitioner. The first was an underlying problem that came to light very quickly in my session. It dealt with a relationship issue with a long time friend in which I had some unresolved conflict. I felt immediate relief and unburdened after carrying this hurt around for so long. The other session was after some surgery I had and I wanted to feel more energetic and speed up my healing process. The next day following the session I was feeling like my old self again. I was told by my MD that my recovery was excellent.

I highly recommend Debra if you are looking to work with a practitioner that is extremely talented and honest. The first time I worked with her she did a long distance session for me. I was amazed by the sensations I experienced and the results in which followed even days later. A couple weeks later we exchanged services in person. I was quite impressed with all her abilities and not only left feeling great but with handfuls of new knowledge. As a Clairvoyant Reiki Practitioner I am very sensitive and it has been challenging to find the right practitioner that I connect with. Debra has a very high vibration which allows her to channel The Divine Energy that brings wonderful results and new truth to you. I look forward to working with her again.
Happiness and Healing

Are you kiddin' me!??? It's 2 weeks now and I'm still testing it out to see if this feeling will last. Sooooooooooo, I just got back from the gym -- I had my first fitness assessment today for further training (weights and cardio). The trainer said that I was the "fittest" person he has seen in the past month, not only in my age category, but all across the board!!! He asked what my secret was. So I told him about YOU and bodytalk therapy!!! I told him if he had seen me just 2 weeks ago, I would have performed at my age level or even older, given all my aches and pains. Let me tell you, this guy put me thru the mill!!! And I did all the exercises with flying colors and feel great! I know I won't be needing the Advil tomorrow . . . thanks to you and the work you did for me. Seriously, I'm a believer! Like I said, I've had one form of therapy or another for years and years (since I was about 17 yo): western medicine, rolfing, massages, chiropractic, physical therapy, acupuncture, acupressure, jin shin shiatsu, craniosacral, energy medicine of all sorts, etc. etc. etc. But nothing and I mean nothing has given me the most immediate and lasting relief from pain, aches, tightness, cramping, etc. I can hardly believe it, my leg feels so amazing no matter what I do! I even ran for 30 minutes the other day and I'm still feeling great! Yoga poses, no problem! Sitting for 12 hrs straight, no sweat! Whatever it was you did, worked! Thank you, thank you, thank you! I am so blessed to have you in my life! I'll be in touch soon to set up another appointment and until then, you can always catch me floating on air ; ) Hugs! Vera
Deb Donnally has helped many areas of my life with her sessions. Her work with Bodytalk has been life-transforming. Both physical and spiritual issues have been addressed and rebalanced. It's nice to know I can always call on Deb when life becomes turbulent.

In the very first session I had from Debra, remotely, she started off with "We are balancing you to the position of your bed in your room." My jaw hit the floor, because she had no way of knowing that just the night before I'd moved my bed 90 degrees, and while that made the most sense in terms of using the space in my room, it didn't feel I got deep enough sleep as before I'd moved it. I had been thinking the whole day, is it worth it to keep it there, or move it back... And boom, that was the first thing she started with. Thanks to her help, I've kept the bed where I moved it, and it feels great. I so appreciate the crystal-clear way she has of getting right to the priority, to the thing that needs to be balanced the most. Have had several sessions with her, and look forward to more!
