The pain and tension I’ve been holding onto for years has finally started to leave my body thanks to Gabrielle’s techniques. I feel hopeful to continue this journey. Her practical, hands on approach to healing the system makes complete sense to me, and I’m learning to be proactive versus reactive in all areas of my life thanks to this work. It’s beyond worth it.

- AMANDA

Gabby’s healing programs and methods have completely changed the way my body, mind and spirit feel on a daily basis. I have experienced true relief in what feels like the first time ever - releasing deep trauma from my nervous system and regaining my power to help create a more aligned life for myself.

gabby, thanks for getting me in shape for this year's snowboarding season. even after 3 days of riding some extreme conditions i was still able to outlast guys 10yrs my junior!

She allowed and created a permissible pause.
It broke the dam, broke the obligation of going and going.
I Became more fluid, spontaneous, and creative.  It's ok to rest. 
She demonstrated the permission to pause.
Broke the curse allowing me an opportunity to stop.
Stop, drop, and chill. Return to self.

Re-routed my whole destiny
She corrected patterns in the moment. 
Now, I think differently, act differently. I even walk differently.

I am a fully certified Pilates Mat and Apparatus Instructor PMA certified For 15 years. I am an alumni of Mount Sina for F.A.M.I. (Functional Anatomy meets injury). I have experienced many different ways of Myofascial release, Tai Massage, deep Tissue Massage, Reiki. gabby's body work is unlike any experience I have encountered. I have a plate and 12 screws and 4 pins in my right ankle from an Ice dancing injury 22 years ago. I have gone through extensive therapy myself through the years.I am a Nurse working in Physical Therapy for many years. In just one session I saw a significant difference in my fascia in my joints unlike any other modality.

I did several sessions with Gabby and turned many of my clients to her that were very grateful for the experience. Any one that gets to experience her gift will be truly grateful.
I highly recommend her form of Body work!

- Patti

A little about me:  early 50’s, total hip replacement, needed flexibility and core strengthening in a big way.  I didn’t realize I needed the work when I first started with Gabby but what a difference.  I started training with Gabby about 14 months ago. What really impresses me about Gabby is the following:

She truly understands the body and what each person needs.
She listens, it’s not a cookie cutter or off the shelf program.  You get a customized program designed to improve the areas you need to work on.  Quite frankly, you may not even realize you need work in a certain area until she does her assessment.
 You’ll work. Face it, you know you need it or you wouldn’t be using her services. She’s a very nice person.  You’re not inventory or a time slot with Gabby. She takes pride in seeing improvement in her clients.

I Did These 3 Stretches
for 28 Days Straight & Here’s what Happened...

An experience | Case Study

I recently documented my 28-day journey on social media doing three specific stretches for twenty eight days. 

AN experience | Case Study


Alright. 

I know what you’re thinking.

Three stretches. So what? 

Here’s the thing- these three stretches were specific to me and only me. 

They were assigned to me by my good friend and body worker/healer; Gabrielle Levy. 

Knowing me, my past trauma, and where Gabby believed I had “blockages” she instructed me to do these three stretches for 28 days straight. 

The entire stretch regimen takes about 20 minutes. With that, the breathing and focus need to coincide with each other in order to reap the true benefits of each stretch.

Gabby works with unblocking certain meridians in the body which energy, also known as “Qi” move though. 

If you’re at all familiar with the ancient Asian culture, you’ve probably heard of Qi. In a perfect world, Qi moves through these meridians completely uninterrupted. 

Kind of like blood flowing through our veins; effortlessly and constant. 

With all the beauty and wonder of life, there’s also plenty of stress to counterbalance.

Traumatic experiences especially are stored energetically in our body. These experiences can block meridians and as a result, inhibit the natural flow and balance of Qi.

When you think about it, practices such as acupuncture, acupressure; reiki, and self massage have been practiced for hundreds of years. It’s because this stuff is effective and powerful AF. 

AN experience | Case Study

These traditional practices along with the stretches I did are intended to remove distortion and tension in the body. 

And trust me when I say: they work. I know because I felt the difference.

After twenty eight days, I noticed I was: 

• Less stressed

• Able to focus better

• Slept more soundly

• Experienced less back aches

• Had more mental clarity

• Was less irritated

• And was definitely more mobile.

The PHysical

The takeaway

Even if you don’t buy into meridian channels or aren’t a huge believer of holistic healing and/or Chinese medicine, doing something like these stretches will still be beneficial for you because of the simultaneous lengthening AND strengthening of the muscles. This is how we improve mobility throughout the body thereby allowing us to move more freely and easily.

Since the body is a kinetic chain, when we lengthen and strengthen our muscles, it may help to eliminate other aches and pains that can be unknowingly associated with each other. 

This was definitely the case for me. Being someone who experiences chronic back pain, especially before my menstruation week, my back pain was kept to a bare minimal for the entire month!

I also felt more mobile during my weight lifting workouts and felt like I could go deeper during certain movements such as my squats. 

Also, experiencing frequent hip popping is something very common for me. By doing these stretches, my hip popping went away completely. 

During the last week of my challenge, I also took the time to clean my apartment, specifically removing all unnecessary clutter that was around and organizing my closets which I hate doing. This was something I was in need of doing but kept putting off. But it became an almost non negotiable to me, especially during the last week of my stretches. I had to clean and clear out anything in my apartment that I had no use for. This could have possibly been symbolic to what I was also feeling internally: removing clutter and making space for something new. 

The mental

The takeaway

From a mental aspect, I can confidently say forcing yourself to do anything that requires you to slow down, breathe deeply and focus is a HUGE plus & has major health benefits, the main one being stress reduction. 

The fact of the matter is when I would take that twenty minutes out of my day to do my stretches, the calm feeling I can recall afterwards was something similar to only how I felt after meditating. It makes sense because meditation forces you to slow down and cease all thinking in order to focus on one thing: your mantra. 

In this case, my mantra was my breath and moving my body through these stretches was my physical meditation.

There were times, especially in the two lower body stretches, when I would start literally weeping, laughing, making weird grunting noises, sighing deeply, yawning, etc.  and I never knew why.

Looking back now, I believe I was literally moving through whatever emotions were coming up for me in those stretches. You can call it “BS” but this really happened. It was only after I moved through these feelings and emotions did I feel better; more sharp, focused, clear and generally more peaceful. 

Since my 28- day challenge, the most significant things I’ve noticed is that I’ve had less stress, anxiety and generally more confidence in myself. Dating has always been somewhat of a challenge for me in the past but recently, I’ve been willing to put myself out there without the negative feelings of self doubt and unworthiness. 

Had I not done these stretches and challenged myself to stay consistent with them, I don’t think I would have come into the new year with such mental clarity, focus and motivation. It just goes to show you how powerful goal setting can be. It doesn’t matter how insignificant or small the goal; when we set out to do something and actually complete it, there’s no telling where that positive momentum can lead us to.
