I contacted Gabriella for Feldenkrais lessons because I was looking for a way to have more physical ease, relief from chronic sciatic pain, back pain and a possible herniated disc.  I also needed help dealing with the effects of overwork and repetitive motion injury due to the physical nature of the work I do, and recent major life stressors that compounded the injuries. I had numbness in my hands and arms as well.

 

I noticed a difference in my energy and pain levels after the first session.  I was able to move more freely without the previous level of pain. The office space is beautiful and quiet. Gabriella is a joy to be with.

 

After five sessions I have more understanding of how the skeleton, spine, muscles and nerves work together. I feel more hopeful, and am able to sleep through the night without interruption by pain. My outlook is more hopeful and am able to do most of the things I need to do—and have more control of my healing process from experiencing the freedom of movement during the lessons. I am now able to carry that awareness with me daily. 

 

I attribute my success to Gabriella’s skill and dedication as a practitioner, her presence and willingness to listen, and the quiet solitude of her treatment space. And my dedication to healing.

I highly recommend Gabriella, and am available to speak with you personally if desired.

REBECCA MADRONE

Gabriella uses very slow, very gentle movements to retrain the brain and nervous systems to "wake up" a body to its original vitality and freedom.  Bad habits, traumas, pain, aging — all of these take a toll on the body's ability to move gracefully, and Gabriella, with great good grace and soft, skillful manipulations puts things right.

 

I understand the principles, but I don't understand the artistry.  And yet I do know that what Gabriella does works.  A lesson with her is worth about a thousand massages,

and about the same number of yoga sessions.  The movements are very slow, but the results seem to come very fast.  I am very grateful for what she has done for me.

ROY DOUGHTY

When I first started to work with Gabriella, I had just been in an automobile accident and was dealing with a moderate concussion. My symptoms included; seizures, headaches, vertigo, language and writing misfires, tinnitus and slow processing of information.

 

From my first session, I was surprised by the gentleness of the work. At first, I wondered how something so gentle could make a difference with what I was dealing with. I found the sessions to be very relaxing and in the process recognized that being relaxed contributed to the effectiveness of her work...after several sessions, my gait improved.

 

I noticed a difference after the first session. I felt more relaxed and I also remember noticing after lessons that I felt like I had just done a yoga session.

 

I credit my significant recovery from my concussion to the lessons and her work on/with me.

ARMANDO QUINTERO

As a concert pianist, I am especially sensitive to subtle inward bodily sensations that translate on a moment to moment basis into sounds. Gabriella's lessons came as revelations. 

 

At the end of each session there was always an epiphany, notable by its unexpectedness.  I felt like I had a new body, or a body that had reawakened to an earlier state.  Sometimes a certain group of muscles (some of which I did not know I possessed) had entered into a harmony with each other that I had never thought possible.

 

Gabriella has a wonderful presence that allows me to enter deeply into the lesson.
