Synergistic Wellness and Relief

Gail DellaFave, RN, with patient.


ail DellaFave, a board-certified holistic nurse and certified clinical aro- matherapy practitioner, provides patients with a very specialized tech- nique of care. IGM Acupressure is a unique, non-invasive method of intentional wellness that provides a peaceful, rested feeling while addressing a multitude of disorders.

The founder of this method is Isabel Gatto, who started IGM more than 35 years ago. In 2010, IGM became the only energy modality recognized by the United States Military Evolution Program, which offered IGM on bases in Ger- many for the those suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. Benefits include pain relief, deep relaxation and balancing while maintain- ing good health. Sessions aid in relief of neck pain, sciatica, back pain, stomach, joint pain, arthritis, circulation, blood pressure, muscle discomfort, stress, anxiety and overall feeling of wellness. DellaFave says, “In my experience, most people also experience clarity in thought following a session with a renewal of their en- ergy. Clients are fully clothed and lie on a massage treatment table while listen- ing to peaceful healing music throughout their sessions.” IGM Acupressure is a multi-conceptual combination of five Eastern, merid- ian-based therapy techniques: acupressure, shiatsu, AMMA, reflexology and jin shin jyutsu, along with components of Therapeutic Touch, music and color ther- apy. This multi-conceptual modality facilitates the restoration of overall balance, harmony and wellness to the body/mind/spirit, using 50 specific therapeutic combinations along the body’s energy channels, or meridians, in a simple trian- gulated sequential order that opens blocked areas for optimal flow of life force energy, or qi.

The human body has a network of meridians through which our vital qi

energy flows. When this flow of energy is interrupted, an imbalance occurs and disease and discomfort manifest in certain areas of the body. Through the ap- plication of IGM, these channels are reopened, allowing the qi to flow, restoring balance and wellness to the body.

People can manifest the highest levels of health and healing within them- selves,” says DellaFave. “Everyone has the responsibility for higher self-care and the right to holistic care that honors the mind, body and spirit. Disease and disor- ders open the potential for one to renew their healing process.
