Gabriel's holistic massage was amazing! He is highly trained and his technique is excellent. He uses his strong hands to glide across your body putting you in a deeply relaxed state. He goes out of his way to make you feel welcome, providing a warm and nurturing environment. You will end the session feeling pure bliss. I highly recommend booking a session with him.

I had little to no knowledge of this technique but I knew I wanted something more than the usual bodywork modalities. What I experienced in the two hour Ke Ala Hoku massage was different than the usual bodywork sessions where you can almost anticipate the next move which interferes with my ability to relax and let go.
Lets just say by the end of the session I felt relaxed but more aware somehow...like a shift in my energy that continued. I’ve rarely been this aware of my own energy and the effect it has on my being, as if I had become more acutely aware of my conscious state, the connection to my physical state and how I relate to everything around me. I feel a detached awareness of how I relate to my existence.
I can see that this is something I would like to revisit as I believe the effects can be cumulative. Glad I stepped out of my box and over the line.

I met Gabriel at Easter April 2018. I was fortunate to be able to receive one of his Ancient sessions. I have had many massages before but never one like he gave. It was much more than a massage, it was a total body and spiritual experience. I don't regard myself as spiritual, but maybe I need to reassess that now! The session was 3 hours of total bliss. Gabriel prepares the soundtrack especially for you, and I felt connections to many of the songs he chose. The massage itself is whole body, intense and totally relaxing. At the end of the session I felt as though I was a caterpillar emerging from its crysalis, it was quite the experience. I would certainly encourage anyone with the opportunity to take it, you'll not regret it!

Best Massage Experience Ever. I had the privilege to meet Gabriel and go through the therapeutic treatment with him for my sore back. His hands worked like magic and I had one of my best massage experience. I would love to repeat it again if I ever get that opportunity.

This was an extraordinary experience from the moment I was greeted. Before we started, I wasn't sure how I'd feel about being on a massage table for three hours. I feared I might get restless. In hindsight I wish I had booked a four hour session. The time flew by. I actually checked the clock when we were done because I couldn't believe it had been three hours. (It had been.) I am also a massage therapist, this guy is amazing!
Gabriel's Lomi Lomi massage was healing on so many levels. Physically, my muscles feel great, body aches are gone. So for that alone it's worth it. Of course a lot of trained bodyworkers can do that for you. But Gabriel's work is also profoundly healing on a more energetic/spiritual level. I felt like I was drifting, floating, letting go of emotional stuff I'd been holding onto for a long time.
It's hard for me to describe clearly much of the session, because I was in the wonderful zone where you're not sleeping, but you're also not entirely awake either. I was off some place wonderful.
Gabriel made me feel completely safe. I felt cared for, nurtured and honored by his touch. There was nothing at all clinical about it. In fact in Lomi Lomi there are many long strokes where hands seem to be moving up and down the full length of the body. (Or maybe it just felt like that!)
If he lived in New York, I would see him regularly. Call him. Book a long session. You will be glad you did! (Ken)

Very talented masseur with great hands who always provides a relaxing, tailored massage. The environment is clean and welcoming with relaxing music. Highly recommended!

The massage work itself is of lighter touch than I am typically used to (reflexology background) and is more reminiscent of flowing waves over a large portion of body rather than on individual muscle focus.
I jokingly referred to it being like "watching the sunset while drinking a martini on a beach", however it's still an accurate statement.
Gabriel has excellent choice in music for his massage. The selection lends itself towards relaxation and doesn't distract from the massage itself.
