Gabriella's journey into Chinese medicine began while working at an acupuncture clinic during a transition in her life. While working there, she could see this ancient medicine's wonderful benefits. She was drawn to the holistic approach of treating the mind and body as one rather than treating just the symptom. After receiving acupuncture for the first time and experiencing a sense of calm and relaxation from the treatment, she knew she needed to have this ability to regulate the nervous system for our busy modern lives. 

She graduated from Pacific College of Health and Sciences (PCHS) in New York City and devoted the past eight years of her life to studying this medicine. After graduating from school, most of her patients were coming in for pain, so she has made it her mission to understand how the anatomy of the body functions and how it also fails each of us, causing us pain and discomfort. She completed extensive training in treating musculoskeletal and pain conditions using Neurofunctional Acupuncture and Trigger Point or Dry Needling acupuncture. She continues to advance her knowledge of Western anatomy, acupuncture techniques, and Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) with numerous continuing education courses to maintain her license. 

Clinically, she has experience treating musculoskeletal injuries and pain conditions, fertility and women's health, hormonal imbalances, and digestive disorders. In addition to her private practice, she is of the acupuncturists for the local professional football team. As someone who lives an active lifestyle, she knows how important it is to keep your body healthy. Whether you are an athlete, yoga enthusiast, cross-fitter, runner, cyclist, someone who sits at a desk all day, or a senior and you are in pain, she will be able to help you.

When she's not working, you can find Gabriella outside hiking, at the beach, exploring different world cultures through food, or at a pottery wheel. 

She looks forward to working together!
