Gianna is an acupuncturist, intuitive healer,
and co-founder of Wildling.
“For as long as I can remember, I have had an insatiable curiosity about human health. I want to know all the tricks that genuinely make people feel better. My understanding of the body began in childhood — I’m the daughter of a gastroenterologist and the granddaughter of an osteopath. I had no shortage of stethoscopes. I remember the satisfaction of diagnosing my first patient at the age of 8, it was an ear infection in my younger brother.
Later on, I found my passion for alternative medicine in India where I was mentored by an Ayurvedic doctor. I obtained a master’s degree in acupuncture and herbology because it resonates with my energetic understanding of the body. My degrees are not my most prized credentials. I award more merit to my willingness to step outside of the box in my personal and professional healing work.
My Intuitive Acupuncture practice was born because I wanted to combine modalities that were extremely effective in my own healing journey. I lost a partner in a car accident many years ago, and I was devastated. I cried every day for six months. In my darkest moments, these healing practices gave my grief a purpose and they changed my life. For the next ten years, I embarked on a journey studying alternative healing methods that brought me back to life. Now it’s my turn to pay it forward. My mission to help people heal.”
