Utilizing his training and experiences over the years, Derrick creates a unique massage experience. It is a massage style based in Neuromuscular with a blend of Facilitation/Inhibition techniques from Physical Therapy and Yogic practices elicited with an intuitive, mindful approach to release negative holding patterns of the body. Through releasing the body, we can better release the Mind for a feeling of ultimate relaxation and realignment.
Derrick spends his free-time training in High Intensity Interval Training and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and other assorted Mixed Martial Arts as well as hiking in the Freshwater Springs of North Florida. Reading and watching Sci-fi books and movies is a passion. Derrick enjoys healthy eating habits and mentoring others on habit changes necessary for improved holistic lifestyles.
If 2020 has taught us anything, it is that this world can get upside down rather quickly. We need to take care of ourselves, so that when the chaos comes, we can greet it from a place of stillness. Give yourself a break and book a session with Derrick today, Your future-self will thank you.

Debi Kleer| LMT, MA #95108, Certified Reflexologist, Swedish Massage Therapist, and AromaTouch Practitioner
My name is Debi Kleer…my accent is South African … and priority is YOU!!
I have been a reflexologist since 1992. It’s been a life-long passion. Since then I have become a reiki master and received certifications in AromaTouch, Crystal Healing, Thai Reflexology, and Total Body Balancing. Last year I completed a 750-hour massage therapy program to add the in-depth understanding of the structural anatomy. After many years working as a Therapist in the Health and Wellness industry, I was looking to combine the benefits from many different health practices – and this allowed me to develop “Revitalize Reflex” which is a combination of my skills and expertise.
Establishing a personal connection with my clients is vital to build long-term client loyalty. Being a Reiki Master, I bring a deeper level of understanding into the true need of my client and help them to experience deep relaxation while releasing their underlying stress and fatigue. Educating my clients on continued self-care after a treatment is part of my dedication as a therapist. It gives me a great sense of fulfillment when I see improvement in their physical health condition and emotional wellbeing. I enjoy helping people relax and de-stress with massage therapy or the combination of massage therapy and reflexology.
- Revitalize Reflexology Treatments 60 minutes
- AromaTouch 30 minutes or AromaTouch Massage 60 minutes
- Swedish Massage 60 minutes or 90 minutes
