I was born into an Italian (Sicilian) family where everything was centered around love of family, love of food, the Sicilian ways, and some crazy superstitions.
My formative years were greatly influenced by a variety of reality models and role models that complimented and collided. To begin with, I attended Catholic school in the 60's with the Sisters of Mercy that rarely showed any mercy towards my overly curious, somewhat rebellious and developing intuitive spirit.
At home, both of my parents, as well as many of my relatives and ancestors, were "TUNED-IN." My mother's super power was her ability to TUNE IN and just "know" things with an uncanny accuracy in real time before they happened. She taught me at a very young age to always pay attention to my dreams, and her advice has served me well.
My father's super powers were in his hands and mind. He could read people and build, repair and heal just about anything. He also had a knack for being at the right place, at the right time and for the right reason. I would later discover that my father was very much like his father, Giuseppe (Joe) Nuccio. My grandfather immigrated to America in 1897. He was a beloved "Mago" (Sicilian folk healer) in his rural community. Friends and neighbors would line up around his house to receive his Sicilian folk medicine and remedies. He helped many people during the Great Depression and did not charge for his services.
All of my childhood experiences and influences created the perfect environment for me to learn how to take never take "no" for an answer and to always pay attention to and TRUST what shows up in my ordinary reality and dreams. We are all blessed with the God-given gift of intuition!
My spiritual studies with the healing arts began around 1980. All of my teachers of old and new magically showed up at the right time, right place and for the right reason. I am forever grateful for their wisdom, love and support.
My journey with Numerology began with the first book I found at age 9 in the adult section of the library. My formal Numerology training began with the teachings of Dr. Beverly McLaughlin. Through Dr. Beverly I met and attended one of Juno Jordan's Numerology seminars in Orange County. Both women were instrumental in my Numerology studies and all that would follow.
I am also a certified Usui Reiki, Karuna Reiki® and Shamanic Reiki Drumming master teacher, a certified IMPART psychic, a certified Tuning Fork Therapy practitioner/teacher, a color and sound therapy practitioner/teacher, a spiritual artist, a certified Feng Shui consultant/practitioner, a trained HealthRHYTHMS Empowerment Group Drumming facilitator and a trained facilitator of alternatives for hospice.
I am a guest speaker and/or a facilitator of classes and events at the historical Glen Ivy Hot Springs Spa in Corona, the Riverside County Office on Aging's Family Caregiver Support Program, The Sacred Journey in Riverside, Astara in Rancho Cucamonga, Common Ground Corona in Norco, the Jurupa Mountains Discovery Center and at a variety of wellness fairs, spiritual centers, senior communities, memory care facilities and at workplaces or home parties.

Family Caregiver Support Program
By Mary Hrinko, Program Manager
The Care Pathways model caregiver program offers a range of coping skills to deal with the challenges of day -to - day care of a chronically ill family member or friend. Throughout the 12 week education series, many tips to take care of oneself are explored as caregivers of older adults are likely candidates of extreme stress and burnout. Care Pathways participants have enjoyed exploring new methods of relaxation they may not have incorporated into their daily routine.
Debbie Durrough, founder of Tune In To Sound, has been a frequent guest presenter during the Healthy Lifestyles segment. She has brought the Magic of Color and Sound® to the participants through a watercolors exercise and a play lists of popular tunes. The caregivers "feel" the emotions brought on by the suggestion of different colors and the background music which connects them to emotions that often touch them deeply and creative watercolors are a result of this introspective exercise.
Debbie is also a HealthRHYTHMS® facilitator and whenever possible brings this knowledge and talent to the Care Pathways participants, guiding them through the experience of drumming to facilitate communication and personal expression. This evidence based Recreational Music Making program has shown results that include improvement in mood states, enhanced creativity, and bonding.

It's NOT about performance or perfection...
What is HealthRHYTHMS®?
HealthRHYTHMS is a research-based group drumming protocol which has demonstrated biological and psycho-social benefits.
HealthRHYTHMS® was developed after leading neurologist and mind-body researcher Dr. Barry Bittman, MD, led a renowned research team in the first biological study on the effects of group drumming in 2000. Subsequent published research supports the program.
Group drumming from a HealthRHYTHMS® perspective is transcendent. It empowers people to more effectively express themselves while enabling them to move beyond their perceived limitations and put back into their lives what is missing ~ Barry Bittman, MD, CEO, Mind Body Wellness Center.
Customarily people have interpreted good health as the absence of illness or disease, but more recently wellness has come to a new meaning, feeling as good as one can feel regardless of diagnosis. This new interpretation of wellness is reflected in a shift from medical profession control and management to individuals' assumed responsibility for "feeling good. It is broadly understood that "being well" results from engagement in activities that lead to and maintain health. ~ Alicia Clair, Ph.D., MT- BC
The program Debbie can facilitate will be based upon the HealthRHYTHMS® protocol developed from medical research that shows the health benefits of drumming with a group, including stress reduction, mood improvement and a boost to the immune system.
Some of the Benefits of HealthRHYTHMS® Group Drumming:
• Reduces Stress, Tension and Anxiety
• Increases Natural Killer Cell Activity
• Strengthens Immune System
• Reverses Effects of Stress on Your DNA (in 19 of 46 genes studied)
• Improves Mood and Reduces Burnout

What is Karuna Reiki®?
Karuna is a sanskrit word and it is translated to mean any action that is taken to diminish the suffering of others and could also be translated as COMPASSIONATE ACTION. When individuals experience enlightenment, they report that all beings are known as one. Therefore, it is natural to extend compassionate action or Karuna to everyone without distinction because we are all one. As we help others and aid them in their healing process, all beings benefit. Because of the oneness of all beings, it is understood that Karuna is not only extended to others out of love, but also because it is an entirely logical thing to do.
Karuna Reiki® works on the emotional and spiritual levels and also helps one become more grounded. Karuna Reiki® prepares the client for deep healing which includes deeply seated issues on the cellular level, and helps release negative patterns that are unconsciously used to insulate ourselves from the truth. Karuna also heals the shadow self, fills the person with love, restores balance, and helps with grounding ~ ICRT Karuna Reiki®

"If we accept that sound is vibration, and we know that vibration touches every part of our physical being, then we understand that sound is ‘heard’ not only through our ears but through every cell in our body" ~ ~Mitchell Gaynor, M. D.
Debbie specializes in combining Reiki with the sounds and vibrations from Tingshas, Crystal and Tibetan Singing Bowls, Ghantas, Gongs, Chimes, Tuning Forks, the Buffalo Drum, Ocean Drum and Moja Drum.
Sound Therapy can be viewed as a wellness alternative that can be used alone or combined with other healing modalities such as: Reiki, Massage, Reflexology, Acupressure, Zone Therapy,and more! Sound Therapy can also be combined with Western Medicine, seems to help with the side effects of medication, may even help shorten recovery time.
Jonathan’s Goldman seems to say it best with his comparison of the human body being like an orchestra where the sound of each organ and each function combines to create the music of the body. When one aspect of the body gets ill or out of balance, the whole orchestra may give off disharmonic waves, causing dis-ease.
The human body is about 2/3 water and 1/3 earth, and because we are mostly water, the sound waves can easily resonate throughout the body. These vibrational sound waves are felt and heard throughout the body and even on a cellular level.
Some of the benefits from Sound Therapy:
Debbie offers a variety of classes in Color Therapy, Sound Therapy and Tuning Fork Therapy. She specializes in combining SOUND and REIKI.
