DEBORAH DEGAZON, CCP

Certified Crystal Practitioner, Certified Sound Healer Owner, Crystalgia LLC South Orange NJ

Deborah’s journey towards ownership of Crystalgia, a wellness company specializing in vibrational, energetic healing using crystals and sound, started in the 1980’s while a student at Smith College. Though a native of NYC, Deborah felt at home in the idyllic setting of Northampton where she learned to nurture her Feminine by exploring Tarot Cards and Astrology. Her interest in alternative philosophies continued into graduate school to include studies in I Ching, Feng Shui, Runes and Crystals.

Deborah began her career in advertising at a graphic design firm in NYC where she was a Media Buyer. After her daughter was born in 1994, she moved to NJ to begin a career in global tax consultancy, working for Lucent Technologies and then PriceWaterhouseCoopers.

In retirement, Deborah has refocused on her philosophical interests and began studies with the Hibiscus Moon Crystal Academy to become a Certified Crystal Practitioner. She also became a Certified Sound Healer under the tutelage of Vicki Gould’s school of Life Changing Energy to enhance and build upon her crystal healing skills. Crystalgia LLC was founded in early 2023.

Based on the Hibiscus Moon Crystal Healing Method, Deborah’s practice offers an integrated crystal and sound healing experience that is personalized for each client and includes a pre-assessment of the alignment of their chakras and a post session follow-up. The healing session itself utilizes carefully chosen crystals and tuning forks as tools to entrain the body on a cellular level and balance the chakras to achieve a vibrational mind, body and spirit state of wellness.

NATALIE PONCE, L.Ac, Dipl. O.M.

Acupuncturist & Chinese Herbalist, Sound Healer

Being a healer is a spiritual journey for me, far beyond being a job. As humanity goes through a great shift in consciousness, I feel blessed to be a part of that reaching for a more compassionate world. I am a practitioner of Chinese medicine and treat through a combination of acupuncture, herbal medicine, essential oils and sound therapy. I work to not only resolve any imbalance in the body, but to help you understand the download that hides behind the dis-ease. From the perspective of this tradition, any physical or emotional suffering we experience is always directly linked to our relationship to change, and the natural world, whose movements reveal the way to our own liberation. I believe that all pain is a calling to return home, to be present for what the movement of life itself wishes to awaken within us.

I received my training at the Eastern School of Acupuncture and Traditional Medicine, where I completed my Master in Acupuncture degree, and additionally completed my certification in Chinese herbology. After receiving my degree, I felt, and still feel, called to go ever deeper with my studies. I have specialized in psycho-spiritual healing, focusing primarily on the treatment of trauma because of its inextricable connection to the ascension process. I mainly offer esoteric and 5 element style acupuncture, consciously working with the etheric and astral bodies.

My knowledge comes not only from my own studies, experience and mentorship, but also from the world of plant medicine and shamanic healing. I currently continue my training in sound therapy with the Acutonics Institute of Integrative Medicine in New Mexico. This medicine involves the use of planetary frequencies and archetypal psychology to illuminate imprisoning thought patterns, open the heart, and remind us of the truth of who we are as creators…and the created, within the divine dream of life.

It would be an honor to work in spirit with you as your healer, to be a gentle guide, and loving ear as you navigate the ups and downs of life.

Natalie offers the following: Acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Medicine, Esoteric Acupuncture, and Sound Healing with Tuning Forks
