Many people dismiss chiropractic as being something only for back pain, but chiropractic treatment can be used to treat a wide variety of physical issues, such as migraines and headaches, chronic pain, carpal tunnel, pain due to injury or muscle strain, and much more.

Heather Gabel

Chiropractor Reseda CA Family Wellness, A Chiropractic Group Heather Gabel


My name is Heather Gabel, a Certified Massage Therapist with the state of California. I received my training through the National Holistic Institute in Los Angeles, CA. in 2012, where as a native of the area, I have been practicing. That afforded me the opportunity to find my true calling in the healing arts.

In the process of all of my studies, I continue to work as a Physical Therapist Aide, for more than six years in the Simi Valley area. It is there where I gained much of my experience working with the injured that allowed me to become the massage therapist that I am today.

I have a true love and great passion for helping others. Whether you are experiencing discomfort, need relief from injury, or you simply want to feel more balanced in your life, I can offer therapeutic assistance for all of your healing needs. Massage therapy benefits people from all walks of life. Whether you’re active or not, it’s one of the most important things you can do for yourself.

Prior to becoming a Certified Massage Therapist, I earned my BA degree from California State University Northridge, majoring in Liberal Studies.
