Gabriella Partono

Gabriella spent four years training at the European School of Osteopathy in the UK and then moved to New Zealand where she worked both in the north and south islands. Recently returned to settle in Somerset with her partner and baby, she is looking forward to treating individuals from all walks of life – from new-born babies to our slightly older patients. Having worked for a New Zealand National League women’s football team, Gabriella is also well placed to treat and rehabilitate acute sports injuries.

“I have been involved in the osteopathic profession for more than 30 years and my practice has evolved to encompass both structural and cranial techniques.

I can offer patients a wide and far-reaching approach to health, bringing spinal balance and equilibrium.”
