Debbie DeNardo, BS, LMT, BCTMB

Debbie earned her BS degree from Northern Illinois University and received her massage therapy education at East West College of the Healing Arts in Portland, Oregon. After 20 years of dedicated professional and managerial work in the insurance industry, Debbie’s passion for healing and helping others led her into the field of massage therapy. Having over 20 years of massage experience, she owns and operates a home based private practice, is Board certified and is a professional member of the American Massage Therapy Association.

In 2008, in addition to her massage work, Debbie began working as a teaching assistant and marketing manager to massage educator Lolita Knight, founder of Fijian Massage and Chinese Facial Massage. During this time she worked closely with Lolita, assisting in the development of new techniques such as those found in Soft Touch Island Massage & Massage Tools to Help Your Hands. Now a certified instructor of NCBTMB approved continuing education courses (Provider # 452031-12), Debbie is continuing Lolita’s legacy by bringing unique and beneficial classes to the massage community as Lolita enjoys retirement. Debbie’s blend of technique, knowledge and sense of fun translates well into a creative, hands-on class environment.
