Gabrielle Merandi traveled the world and returned to Morgantown with skills that can help us in our fast-paced, post-pandemic lives.
Listening to our bodies’ needs can be hard when we’re constantly bombarded with outside stimulus and responsibilities. Holistic mentor Gabrielle Merandi recognizes this, and she uses her studies in everything from biology, psychology, and clinical psychology to meditation, Ayurveda, and shamanism to guide her clients to better balance.
Merandi fell into holistic health a little by accident. She started researching different healing modalities in response to her own physical health problems. While healing her own body, Merandi consolidated her new knowledge, and she now specializes in working with women who struggle with health issues. “Helping women understand their bodies and how to take care of them—it’s definitely a joy,” she says. “I experience so much happiness in my work.”
In a session with Merandi, “your whole self gets taken care of,” she says. “I want to help people know how to take care of themselves after they have stopped seeing me. I want them to be so supported and equipped that they don’t need me anymore.” Services such as Reiki, a Japanese healing technique, are some of the ways Merandi helps you do just that. If you work with her, you gain a personalized experience that addresses everything from diet to emotional and mental support with a variety of tools.
The benefits from holistic healing are long-lasting, Merandi says. “We aren’t band-aiding it or partially taking care of the issue. We are discovering where something is originating from so you don’t have to experience it anymore.” Clients gain a deeper self-confidence and an understanding of the ways in which their own bodies work, she says, and that understanding becomes the clients’ tools for continued health.
Thinking about holistic health practices? Merandi shares some words of advice: “It can be a new experience, so really honor yourself, your sovereignty, and what feels good to you the whole time.”
