Gabrielle M.Grigore, Director/President

Dr. Grigore completed six years of medical studies at the School of Medicine in Bucharest. Being interested in a more holistic approach to health as well as fascinated by the traditional oriental medicine, Dr. Grigore traveled to Japan where she continued her studies in the disciplines of Naturopathic and Traditional Oriental Medicine. Graduating from the School of Oriental Medicine of Tokyo as a Doctor of Oriental Medicine, specializing in Acupuncture, Reflexology, Moxabustion, and Acupressure, Dr. Grigore also trained in Shiatsu and received a degree of Shiatsu Master. Upon arriving in the United States, Dr. Grigore founded a school of massage therapy and has herself become a Licensed Massage Therapist. She is now the Founder and the President of North Eastern Institute of Whole Health located in Manchester, New Hampshire, and has also been recognized by Who’s Who in Executives and Professionals.

Always concentrating on educating the public in the fields of holistic health and bodywork, Dr Grigore has provided many workshops across Europe and the United States training people how to resist and prevent illness. Dr. Grigore has researched and combined modern western science with the traditional oriental arts into a unique, preventive, and recuperative medical approach.

Her beliefs in the benefits of massage therapy for physical, emotional, and mental health of the body, persuaded her, over a number of years, to create and copyright two new techniques to be placed under the immense umbrella of the massage therapy profession: the unique Grigorian Method® imparts to the massage therapy profession a higher skill of treatment that focuses on bone and joint movement and range of motions as well as on the nervous system.

Grigorian Organic Spa Reflexology®, a complex, original, treatment involving foot, hand, and face reflexology techniques uniquely combined with the benefits of the use of vegetables, fruits, herbs, and their byproducts.

At this time, the two methods are exclusively taught at North Eastern Institute of Whole Health in Manchester, New Hampshire. Those wishing to train to become certified practitioners and/or instructors of these modalities are encouraged to contact the Institute.

The Grigorian Method® training, offers certifications in Beginners’, Intermediate, and Advanced levels, as well as a Master program.
