Gisela has been an active member of the therapeutic massage community for 22 years, contributing a wide variety of skills within the field. Specializing in many different areas, she is a state licensed and nationally certified massage therapist, and reiki master, also offering services in process acupressure, cranio-sacral therapy, reflexology and lymphatic drainage. Her education began in Germany, with physiotherapy, therapeutic massage, and hydro-therapy. She began her work with Yale New Haven Hospital in 1999, which led to her involvement with the Julie Hopkins Neilson Complementary Therapy Program in 2003. This program offers its patients solace and comfort during the end stages of cancer. At a time that is often devoid of relief patients are able to experience a blend of calm and revitalization. Gisela’s areas of expertise allow her to combine both human touch and holistic healing in order to support those in their final stages of life. She believes this program to be a vital tool, bringing both dignity and tranquility to the lives of those who need it most.
