We caught up with Gabriele to find out more about him.
Why did you decide to become an osteopath?
“I have always been fascinated by anatomy and physiology. Initially, I wanted to study medicine at university.
“However, after a series of injuries I visited an Osteopath. The holistic approach to treatment along with the strong medical component made me reconsider medicine and study Osteopathic Medicine instead.”
What’s your favourite thing about being an osteo and why?
“The problem solving required to understand what the patient is going through, the diagnostic process and then adapting and tailoring an appropriate treatment plan. This is why, alongside my osteopathy, I’m also a Sports Massage Therapist and Cupping Therapist.
“Osteopathy allows me to use all these techniques to really home in on what the patient needs. I I love that aspect of the role.”
Why did you decide to qualify in cupping? And what benefits does cupping have?
“I studied cupping because it’s closely aligned to Osteopathic belief that the rule of artery is supreme. This theory is that when blood and lymphatics flow freely, the tissues can perform their physiological functions without impedance.
“Having the power to manipulate blood using suction allows me to influence this on a direct level using negative pressure within the cup.
“People get cupping for many purposes. Including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and wellbeing. Also as a type of deep-tissue massage to reduce muscle tension.”
Gabriele will be working in the Central London Osteopath Clinic in Regent Street every Wednesday from 9am to 8pm. You can book with him via text on 07951163337 or Email: Gabgiotherapy@gmail.com
