About Deborah Bernacchia (Owner of Sunapee Lake Massage)
When Deb graduated from nursing school in 1978 nurses were still giving patients back rubs to help them relax and go to sleep. She did not yet have the training as a licensed massage therapist, but did her best and each back rub was met with heartfelt gratitude. Today nurses do not have the time to give their clients a back rub or bath as these duties are relegated to overworked (and underpaid) nursing assistants. Any touch that is given is medically oriented and often involves pain. Bringing massage to those who need it most is something that breathes meaning and purpose into her life, not to mention satisfaction and excitement. This is something that Deborah and a small group of committed employees were able to accomplish with the newly established massage program at Concord Hospital. Now, any patient can request a massage and if their medical team approves, have a wonderful life affirming massage right at their bedside.
Deborah became a clinical specialist in the area of chronic pain while working at Concord Hospital and has continued to fine tune her expertise in this area. She is an E.F.T. instructor and has helped many people learn how to reduce pain, anxiety and depression.
Deborah has been on a spiritual path for forty years and recently became a certifiied spiritual counselor through the American Institute of Healthcare Professionals and is also an ordained Minister of the Universal Life Church.
Deborah graduated from Dovestar Holistic Institute in July 2010 as a Usui Shiki Ryoko Reiki master therapist and a Kriya Massage therapist. She is NCBTMB certified as well as Licensed through the State of New Hampshire and a member of ABMP. She has also a certified Lypossage Therapist, certified Lymphatic Drainage massage therapist and certified Medi -cupping therapist. Deborah is an Ordained Minister, and is available to perform weddings as well.
