Deep Listening Image
Deep Listening

Deep Listening is a way of hearing in which we are fully present with what is happening in the moment without trying to control it or judge it. We let go of our inner clamoring and our usual assumptions and listen with respect for precisely what is being said. It is to hear beyond the words of the other person and yourself, to the essence of the words and feelings.

Deb is Amazing! I can't say enough about her. I first met her when I was expecting my first child and she made sure my pregnancy went smoothly and that I felt great the entire journey, and I did! She has also helped me with feeling good after my pregnancy, getting me back on my feet and supporting me where needed. I recommend her to everyone I know!

Deb works with such wisdom and experience that by feeling my pulse and asking a question or two, she knows the precise treatment necessary at the present moment. Her approach exceeds the professionalism of most medical doctors and she has taken more strides to understand my body composition and psychological wellness than anyone I have ever met.

I initially began going to Deb for treatment of migraines. I have to admit I was skeptical at first that a few needles could have any effect on the situation. Well I was sold after about the 2nd treatment. It’s now been about a year and I have only had one migraine during that entire time (the 1st day after the initial treatment). I now go once a month for maintenance Deb also does cupping which is awesome— ask to try that when you are there!.

I started working with Deb when I was pregnant. She helped me tremendously to feel well and have a healthy pregnancy. I have continued working with Deb to promote good health for several years. She is a wealth of knowledge. My son has also had great success working with Deb. He struggled for a year with nausea. No medical professionals could find anything wrong with him. Beginning acupuncture with Deb very quickly eliminated his symptoms. I can’t recommend her enough. She is not only a pleasure to work with, but gets results!

I am very impressed by Debra Shulman&rspquo;s knowledge and the care she gives in her practice. I have had amazing results with my digestive disorder and other issues that accompany it. Truly glad I met Debra after years of searching for someone with her experience and that communicates well with clients. I have referred many others to her in the 9 months I have known her, and they are happy too.
Deb Wieberdink
Since she began her practice, I have come to Acupuncturist Deb very ill and often greatly fatigued and leave healed and on the path to greater wellness. Her great understanding of gallbladder issues with acupuncture brought me back from deteriorating health recently, as she was able to diagnosis me quickly and correctly. She has built a practice with strong professionalism, experience and knowledge but also with a bedside manner of gentle kind-heartedness. I leave feeling very cared for.
