Gabrielle Cipollone, Certified Reflexologist
Born and raised in East Germany, Gabi started rowing at the age of 13. As a result of hard work and dedication to the sport of rowing, she participated in the 1976 and 1980 Olympics and came home both times with a gold medal.
After high school, Gabi studied at the University of Dresden Civil Engineering and worked as a Construction Manager until 1995 when she moved to the U.S. with her two sons to marry her husband Mike.
Not speaking English well, she started to do what she knew best: to coach rowing. Soon after, Gabi became a certified Personal Trainer.
Since beginning her athletic career, Gabi has always focused on a moderated healthy lifestyle, including exercise, eating, sleeping and using holistic methods to keep her energy level in balance and her body healthy and strong. Some of the holistic methods she has used are acupuncture, massage, reflexology and yoga.
Over time, Gabi wanted to know more about energy in and around us and was fascinated how her body reacted and how good it felt to make time just for herself.
Her studies of foot and hand reflexology started in 2004 with missionary nuns at the “Center for Human Integration” in Philadelphia. Gabi graduated a 200-hour program at the “Lourdes Institute of Wholistic Studies” in Collingswood, NJ and became a national certified Reflexologist by the American Reflexology Certification Board in 2009.
By studying and graduating as a Facial Reflexologist at the Lone “Sorenson Institute in Barcelona, Spain” in 2015, Gabi is able to help her clients with a broader spectrum of physical and emotional imbalances. Gabi is a firm believer in continuing education on a regular basis.
