Gabriela Halleck specializes in chronic pain/ injury and is also a trained P.U.S.H. therapist. PUSH Therapy is a comprehensive system developed for chronic tension and pain relief. P.U.S.H. stands for P= Power, U= Under, S= Soft, H= Hands, and is mainly used on athletes, especially when they need more than the typical deep tissue massage.
Gabriela explains: “The therapy is safe, effective, shows fast results, and provides long-lasting changes to the body. PUSH was also specifically developed to protect the therapist's body - all treatments are administered in a completely relaxed state. There are no stances, no hand pressure, and no muscular force is exerted during the application of P.U.S.H. treatments. Specialized techniques are used during P.U.S.H. treatments to restore blood flow and oxygen to tissue that has developed chronically tight or rigid patterns from repetitive use, overuse, or repetitive muscle fatigue.”
Gabriela, a native of Colorado, was nicknamed Mighty Mouse by her pro athlete clients, because of her ability to deliver deep pressure despite her small stature. She has been performing massages since she was a child. With encouragement from her mother, a physical therapist, she began charging her brothers 25 cents for each back massage. Her family's passion for studying the inner workings of the human body fueled Gabriela's goal to pursue education as a Certified Massage Therapist.
In 2003 Gabriela graduated Dean's list from Heritage College and quickly acquired National Certification. In 2006 she became a P.U.S.H Therapist, a specialized and rare certification in the U.S., in order to specialize in chronic pain and to easily locate the source of pain and discomfort in every client. Her clients include TV personalities, sports figures as well as stay-at-home moms. She also gained additional extensive experience working for high-end spas in the Los Angeles area.
