MEET GABRIELLE KATER, L.Ac.
The depth and diversity of Gabrielle’s experience is what sets her unique approach apart.
I’m so glad you’re here.
Gabrielle Kater is a licensed acupuncturist and Chinese Medicine practitioner in Boulder, Colorado. Her passion is derived from studying all forms of holistic natural healing modalities for treating the mind and body. She pairs this affinity with studying Daoism, the intellectual foundation of traditional Chinese medicine.
Originally from Azores Islands, Gabrielle’s collegiate career brought her to Boulder where she studied Contemplative Psychology at Naropa University. She continued her education at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in San Diego. She received her Master’s of Science in Oriental Medicine at the Institute of Clinical Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in Honolulu while also focusing on Daoism studies at Tai Hsuan Monastery. After, she applied her education working and studying under the guidance of Dr. Shi Zhong Xiao, who received his doctorate from the renowned Su Zhou hospital in China. She’s also completed an Acupuncture Sports medicine apprenticeship with Whitfield Reaves.
Gabrielle first began her in-depth study of alternative medicine after struggling with an autoimmune disorder in her early 20s. For Gabrielle, conventional medicine did not treat her condition. Where alternative medicine helped with her treatment, she now specializes in treating autoimmune disorders, mental-emotional issues (depression, anxiety, sleep), endocrine disorders, women’s health, as well as injury and pain. Her wide range of clients varies from rehabilitating professional athletes, such as NFL players, to women struggling with fertility. She also devotes her life to teaching and practicing yoga. Gabrielle has completed 1,000-hour yoga teacher training from Naropa University and is adept in Asana, Pranayama, Meditation, and Ayurveda.
Along with being a practitioner, Gabrielle is a Diplomat of Oriental Medicine with the NCCAOM. She continues to advance her proficiencies in alternative Chinese medicine through certifications, such as Somatic Experiencing Certification from the Trauma Institute in Boulder, so she can continue to help others with holistic mind/body treatment.
