    A while ago I was suffering from shoulder and arm pain to the point where I was not able to continue with my daily activities and as a mom to 2 young children this was not working for me! I had gone to the chiropractor for years, I had tried massage therapy, nothing helped or solved my pain issues. Then I saw a blog post by my cousin Deb and decided to email her and see if this "egoscue" could help me. Deb set up a menu for me and I finally began feeling relief, and relief not just from my arm pain but my lower back and hip pain also. Deb has been such a wonderful support and source of knowledge for me. I live at quite a distance so I am not able to have an in person appointment but through email and Skype I am saying good bye to my pain. Deb's dedication to me over such a distance has been such a blessing.

    Deb has been fantastic to work with. I started working with her as my postural alignment specialist a little over a month ago and at the time could barely do anything. Deb has been great at finding ways to challenge me while working within my limitations and I have seen tremendous progress in a short time under her tutelage. She is positive, encouraging, and creative in finding the best ways to help her clients succeed. I have a tremendous amount of experience in the fitness field and have never met anyone with as extensive of knowledge of body mechanics and the human body as Deb. I would recommend her to anyone as a trainer/specialist.

    I've worked with Deb a few times since back surgery and I wish I would've listened to the small voice in my head telling me to see her BEFORE surgery. I truly believe that had I done that, surgery would not have been necessary. But as it is, she has helped me understand what brought about my injury and I make sure to do a menu everyday to work on my alignment to prevent future injury. I've had some minor aches and pains but Deb has been able to give me new menus to nip the problem in the bud. She's a wonderful teacher and a great listener! I'm so thankful that I finally decided to call her!

    Connecting with Deb a year ago was for me an answer to prayer. I had seen chiropractors,athletic therapists,massage therapists,doctors.The full gambit of professionals with very little improvement. My pain was a 7-9 out of 10. I did not know where to turn. I discovered Deb online.Since working with Deb my pain has dropped to a 3-4. I have played much better golf . Coached a National Championship volleyball team being able to enjoy the experience because of less pain.Previously I could barely make it through practices.But most important of all I am a better husband and Grandfather . I can do more house chores and can do more with my grandkids. My quality of life has improved tremendously. Deb is the ultimate professional. She has shown me that my body is out of alignment and I am now working on correcting the problem.Deb is absolutely the BEST. Her knowledge is off the charts and I am very fortunate to have her helping me.I rate her 5 stars.

    As a mother of a child who once was in severe pain, I would describe Deb Preachuk as a miracle worker. My daughter was diagnosed with Severs Disease and had acute foot pain on and off for a year which limited her passion for athletics. In the midst of frustrating trial and error doctor recommended exercise, taping, icing and pressure techniques that were leading nowhere, Deb was able to diagnose my daughter, position her from top to toes in correct alignment and I literally saw the pain melt from her face almost instantly. Through a series of appointments and exercise menus, my daughter has made significant gains in strength and is completely pain free.

    As someone who grew up with a chiropractor and used natural medicine I was shocked to find out how little I really knew about proper posture alignment. The education that Deb has provided, along with the support and encouragement she freely gives has not only helped my girl, but has and will continue to influence the health of our whole family.

    I have also been to Zumba class and may I just say Deb Preachuk is a completely 'off the chain' instructor - she is truly amazing.
