Gabrielle earned a BSc (Hons) in Acupuncture at The College of Integrated Chinese Medicine – Kingston University. She practices an integrated style of acupuncture, combining both Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and the Five Element constitutional style. Gabrielle has done extensive post graduate study, particularly in the field of gynaecology and fertility, and believes that the combination of Chinese Medicine and Western Medicine can work wonders. She has a keen interest in the immune system and how it impacts our physical, emotional and spiritual health. The strengthening effect of acupuncture, coupled with appropriate dietary and lifestyle changes, restores balance – reinforcing a fact that the ancients had known; prevention is the key to good health. As a member of the UK regulatory body, The British Acupuncture Council, you can be assured that Gabrielle adheres to the highest standards of care and professional conduct. “Through receiving acupuncture, becoming aware of its principles, and incorporating acupuncture – inspired self care techniques in to your life, you can enjoy physical and emotional benefits that may have eluded you in the past.” Deep Tissue Massage Treatment: Coming from an Acupuncture background, Gabrielle does not believe in treating symptoms only as they tend to re-occur! So, her Deep Tissue Massage Treatments are also focused on finding the cause of the pain and where it started from in order to provide long term relief from acute and/or chronic injuries and pain conditions. Gabrielle uses the Body tool Deep Tissue Treatment method to treat muscular pain (back, neck, shoulder etc.), as well as working on the pain management of pelvic pain conditions such as endometriosis. This is a rehabilitative Deep Tissue Massage Treatment helping you to feel more comfortable in your skin and pain free.
