August 2008 - interviewed in MASSAGE Magazine article titled “Biofeedback and Brain Training: The New Generation of Mind-Body Therapies,” by Chris Cunningham. Article summary: Mind-body therapies, including guided imagery, progressive relaxation and biofeedback, have been widely associated with stress reduction and behavioral change.
Gina graduated from the Alpha Institute of the Treasure Coast, in Port St. Lucie, FL in 2000 and began her practice in massage therapy immediately. In 2009, she attended the Hudson Valley School of Massage Therapy, in West Park, NY, and is currently licensed to practice massage in both the states of Florida and New York. Prior to becoming licensed as a massage therapist, Gina was introduced to the studies of alternative therapies that has led her through 20 years of study.
In 1995, Gina was introduced to the alternative healing arts as an employee of HealthInform. For three years she traveled the United States and Canada experiencing and writing about the numerous therapies she learned about. She developed a passion for healing physical, emotional, and spiritual "dis-ease" through alternative therapies. In the summer of 1997, she spent her weekends participating in traditional Lakota ceremony in Schevus, NY, where she integrated Native American Traditions into her daily practice. In the Fall of 1997, Gina traveled to New Mexico and spent three months exploring the Jemez Mountains, the ancient ruins of the Anasazi Indians, and studying under a licensed clinical therapist in art therapy. In 2000, Gina traveled to California for three months to study with James Hyman, shamanic healer. She helped facilitate workshops with James as well as study his work. In 2001, Gina met Bruce Hockings at an FSMTA convention, that led her to begin her studies in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Combined, her adventures in her travels, her studies, and her experiences have given her valuable "pearls" she uses in her practice.
Gina practices Swe-Thai massage as well as Swedish massage, Myofascial Release, Deep Tissue massage, Trigger Point therapy, and many other styles of bodywork. She has completed advanced study in Swe-Thai, Matrix Energetics, ETPS, Cranial Release Technique (CRT), Deep Emotional Release, and has received her level III Master in Reiki. She continues to take advanced education programs in the area of massage therapy to provide high quality care.
Gina has experience working with referrals from Chiropractors, Physical Therapists, and Pain Management Clinics helping to facilitate the natural healing process. She works under the principle that the human body inherently knows how to heal itself. A combination of different techniques and modalities are used to create a specific treatment for each individual depending on their specific need.
