This is Gianna Rose. I am a true lover of Vermont who is here to work this lovely land lightly and symbolically through body, mind, spiritual practices. I have been on this journey of vibrant balanced health for nearly two decades. Training as a tri-athlete and researching GMOs, it was time to change when I injured myself repeatedly. Luckily the stars aligned me with an Internal MD who prescribed some anti-depressants with yoga, studying Buddhism, and massage therapy. Eventually, I was off the drugs and became inspired to learn more about the yoga/Buddhist/healer lifestyle enough to become certified and insured to teach and work with others. Certified in: Sports Massage, Amma Therapy, Thai Yoga, Clinical Massage, Reiki, Lifestyle Education, YOga meets Dance, Polestar Pilates Therapy, Nutritional Coaching, Bikram Yoga, Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy, Vinyasa, Yoga Nidra, Bioenergetics, Chakra Balancing, Pranayama Therapy, Applied Kinesiology, Maya Abdominal Massage, Dona Doula, and currently in training with Sri Dharma Mittra as a Lifestyle of a Yogi 200 hour certification. After a session with me, you will have a deeper level of awareness, tools to keep the work moving, and a sense of energized peace. I believe that health is innate and living lightly on the earth means getting to know and go beyond the understanding of the body, mind, and spirit. There are so many ways to tap into the body and every session I learn and grow too. I am still an active athlete and love the seasonal changes living in Vermont brings to my training. I practice and teach yoga daily. I also align my values with my actions as best as possible. I claim this life as being perfectly balanced, perfectly expressed.
I have been practicing bodywork professionally since 2015. I attained my certification after completing an 850 program from the Ann Arbor Institute of Massage Therapy. It was there I was introduced to an array of modalities, with a strong focus on Myofascial Release, Neuromuscular & Triggerpoint Therapy. Strangely, or maybe not so strangely enough, bodywork came into my life after sustaining an ankle injury. Recovering, I needed something more than just a good deep stretch. Massage brought me very quick results, which sparked my curiosity about human anatomy and different massage modalities. The whole discovery process started opening up doors for me. In about two years, I found myself completing school and onto helping others with muscular and/or postural issues. I am very grateful to have found and studied massage work because, it allows me to work with my hands, share something that I’m passionate about, and help others improve their health!
Artist and 2020 graduate of NVU-Johnson with a BS in Wellness and Integrative Medicine, I live in North Wolcott by way of White River Jct., VT. My journey in Northern Vermont begins as a transfer student from my local CCV, where I studied Environmental Science and STEM. During this time, I took up a job at an assisted living home, where I worked very closely with residents as a caregiver most days of the week. This is when I realized that my life’s focus is working with people, to help others feel
good, though there had been other signs my whole life. I learned how to play the ukulele and sang through the Great American Songbook with residents in the memory care unit, of which the effect is an incredible gift to witness. Here is where a brilliant RN encouraged me to pursue the alternative medicine program at Johnson. A few years later, and I signed up for Reiki 1 through my program at NVU. At that point, it was an option of elective that fit my schedule well. However, within moments of
the class beginning, it was clear to me that I was meant to be here--to become a Reiki practitioner. I got my level 2 certificate shortly after, and continue my study today. My goal is to help reconnect people with themselves through Reiki and encourage meaningful connections with nature. As a painter and ceramicist, I am endlessly inspired by people and our natural world. Art and healing are very much connected to my philosophy. In the future, I strive to operate a multimodal Healing Arts studio and farm. I love working with Reiki on animals as well as fellow humans and offer distance Reiki in addition to sessions at Be Well!
I look forward to meeting you.
