A simple, small sign at the bottom of the hill reads : "Deb Feiner, P.T." There is magic in the air driving up Deb and Fred's driveway, starting with the stonehenge sized boulders scattered throughout the property, to the winding driveway leading to Deb and Fred's home of many years.
For those fortunate to know Deb, there is a lot more to this woman than her Physical Therapy practice. First there is that glorious smile, which comes from a place in her that is at ease and happy with the world. Then, there is her energy. She is tan, fit and always on the go. When not at work, she can be seen walking the two dogs she inherited from her daughter, or out biking, hiking and camping with her husband Fred. And finally there is is her healing art : cranial sacral therapy, which has miraculously cured many a person's aches and pains. The stories I have heard about her gift throughout the years are better than any professional recommendation. The first time I heard of her was from a faculty member at the nearby Putney School. I was told about an eye problem no one else could address effectively. The detailed account of the help she provided convinced me there had to be more to Cranial Sacral than just the massage therapy I thought it was.
What is Cranial Sacral Therapy?
Cranial Sacral therapy is a gentle form of bodywork that addresses the head, spinal column and sacrum. The goal is to release compression in those areas which alleviates stress and pain. Cranial sacral therapy seeks to restore the natural position of the bones and can decrease stress from chronic injuries as well as provide relief from migraine headaches, neck and back pain. Many people are unaware of the stress they are under and benefit from just a few sessions.
Catch her if you can!
Deb always has a full calendar, however she tries her best to squeeze in everyone who seeks help. It is clear from the first consultation how much she loves her work. She spends a considerable amount of time getting to know each of her patients, which is a key factor to her success.
When the couple bought their home they spent many years working to transform the plain Cape house structure into the multi faceted home where the living arrangement accomodates both Deb's office and the couple's family life. The red barn on the property is Fred's "man-cave", used mostly for his bird rehabilitation and forge. Stay tuned for the article about Fred and the birds he treats.
