Owner, Licensed Acupuncturist
A note from Gabrielle: As a Licensed Acupuncturist and East Asian Medicine Practitioner, I'm passionate about working with individuals to co-design a treatment plan that encompasses the health and wellness needs of their whole self: body, mind, and spirit. I see my role simply as facilitator to your own inherent ability to heal. I seek to discover and identify any underlying imbalances that may be contributing to disharmony so that I may then select specific Acupuncture points best suited for your needs. Acupuncture allows me to communicate with your nervous system to support your inherent ability to self-correct, regain equilibrium, and restore vibrant health. Whether you suffer from low back pain, migraines, sports injuries, hormonal imbalances, insomnia, depression, allergies, or some other manifestation of pain, stress, or imbalance, I have seen Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine bring relief and healing to countless health problems.
Sometimes life throws things onto our path that create blocks in our energy flow, injuries to our physical body, emotional wounds, or damage to our spirit. My goal is to help you discover these areas asking for support, and subsequently rebalance your system in order to allow true healing to take place on many levels. Rather than simply focusing on quieting a symptom, Acupuncture treatment comprehensively addresses your entire self, so you can fully thrive.
Acupuncture is a very subtle medicine, but it has very profound effects, and I deeply value the priceless gifts that it contributes to our overall well being. I can't wait to share the experience of Acupuncture with you.
