The best care
Location: Ashland Clinic
Gabriel Govendo MSOM, L.Ac. believe in a comprehensive approach to health. He uses acupuncture, herbs, bodywork, nutrition, and lifestyle consultation to help facilitate greater balance and thus greater health in the patient he treats.
Gabriel is a strong proponent of integrative medicine. Before moving to Southern Oregon, he practiced at an integrative clinic in the Greater Boston area. Gabriel is a graduate of Southwest Acupuncture College in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and a former apprentice to Takayuki Koei Kuwahara, a master of Japanese Meridian Therapy. Grateful for the teaching he has received, he strives to be the best practitioner he can be, studying with other luminaries in the field, and continually developing his own approach. Gabriel’s practice includes treatment for fertility, pregnancy, pediatrics, internal medicine, and musculo-skeletal issues.
Helping people feel greater ease and connection within themselves is Gabriel’s way to foster peace in the world. For him, that is the essence of the interconnectivity that is embraced by holistic medicine. Likewise, in his personal life, Gabriel is taught connection by his wife and toddler, and through his practice of marital arts.
