Debi Testa

Vice-Chair

Movement has been both Debi’s life and my life’s work.She have been teaching (dance and yoga) and running her own businesses for over 40 years. Her definition of movement includes both external and internal, so energy work has always resonated strongly with her. Having gone through many short (weekend) energy work training classes, she knew there had to be more. She was hungry for a deeper, comprehensive, evidence based system and is grateful to have found Dr. Stone’s work, a complete holistic practice.

Debi completed her RPP in 1999, has been a member af APTA for over 20 years, and was among the first to be Grandfathered in with the  BCPP title.

She is also a Bach Foundation Registered Practitioner and Certified Bach Basics Teacher.

A desire to maintain inner balance and stillness while perusing a busy career
and personal life gave Dianne her passion for what she does.

She has been committed to empowering people to live healthier lifestyles since completing her extensive training in Polarity Therapy in 1992 after years in business and management. Along with other therapeutic and relaxation techniques Dianne was founder and president of ‘touchback’ for 20 years, a company supporting healthy work environments by offering onsite corporate massage, wellness seminars and workshops as well as developing a private practice in Polarity Therapy.

Dianne says, ‘The first time I heard about Polarity Therapy I was intrigued with the complexity and wholeness of the technique.  The first time I had a treatment I knew this was the career for me. That was 30 years ago and I feel the same about Polarity Therapy today as I did then – it’s amazing.  I love giving treatments and I love receiving treatments.
