Ke Ala Hōkū Massage & Therapeutic Lomi Lomi Massage for LGBTQ+ and straight allies. Based in Seattle.
"Lomi Lomi" literally means "to massage" in Hawaiian. I travel around the world sharing this rare form of Hawaiian massage (Ke Ala Hōkū) that only about 300 people in the world offer. I have clients all over the world from all different walks of Life.
The lomi lomi technique I use is long, wave-like strokes in a continuous motion with "universal pressure" (very light... to very deep depending on the moment in time and where I am on the body). One-hour minimum. Pricing in listing.
Therapeutic Lomi Lomi is for those with specific aches and pains, need special attention due to injury, or for general relaxation.
Ke Ala Hōkū means The Pathway to the Stars. It's also known as Ancient Lomi Lomi. It's a transformational healing experience on a mental, emotional, physical, cellular, and ancestral level. Great for those in any kind of transition in their lives, needing clarity, or experiencing a "death" on any level. It's about reawakening the primal Cellular Consciousness that exists within you, which can open new neural pathways, release patterns, and blocks on many levels. Separate pricing for this massage. Please inquire.

Unmatched care and quality, an unforgettable and unique massage experience.
I've done massages for over 7 years and was very impressed by Gabriel's energy and obvious love of his work. He is a caring perfectionist. No better compliment than saying I will long remember how well I slept because I was relaxed by a professional. Thank you Gabriel! The best I’ve ever had!

How lucky I feel to have received a massage from Gabriel. He felt so confident from the first moment. He transmits that security, that good vibe. Everything was perfect, impeccable, but the best was in his hands!!!! I loved his big palms or so they felt that way!!! At times I imagined as if a giant was giving me a massage. The feeling was strange, but very rewarding. Feeling the palms of his hands on my back automatically transported me to a level of 100% relaxation. I felt so free. I felt happy. I was able to literally fly. I am a professional masseur. I can recognize the quality of his work. I still feel well-being closing my eyes and remembering all those perfect maneuvers of a massage master.

I've been fortunate to have two Lomi Lomi massages with Gabriel. He offers a unique flowing touch that's deeply soothing, healing and nourishing. He brings wonderful presence, nurturing and tenderness to the session. I felt very well cared for. I highly recommend you experience his work if you get a chance.

Gabriel’s sweet and compassionate energy is immediately clear. His studio is luxurious and clean with stunning views of mountains and water. After obtaining the information he needed and, describing what I could expect, Gabriel got right to it. During the massage I began to have a clearer and deeper understanding of my own spiritual evolution. A deeper understanding of how the painful and challenging moments in life are necessary for the growth of the soul. Some new insight of the archetypal role I chose before this life even began.
The release was profound and cathartic. As he worked on some problem areas, I could feel toxic energy being removed - almost “vacuumed” out.
For me the experience was a powerful release of some emotional pain. Physically, it was much like a few acupuncture sessions where, things feel looser ad rejuvenated but, with more lasting results. I feel much calmer and free from the normal aches and pains that come with middle age. I will be back for more to see how the sessions build upon each other for long term benefits. Thank you, Gabriel!

Gabriel is an excellent specialist. He has very good energy. I never had such a great experience, the massage was beyond anything. I can’t stop talking about it. Professional, efficient and inexpensive! I recommend it!

I had the pleasure of meeting Gabriel and having a 90-minute massage.
During the treatment there were times when i floated off into another place. It was one of the most relaxing experiences I've ever had.

Gabriel is awesome. I came away feeling awake and amazing, have had more dreams in the days after his amazing massage. Only way I can describe the massage...one of the best 3hrs of my life. Highly recommended.

Gabriel provides a unique massage experience that is in a class by itself. The rhythms of his techniques are kind of like meditation in motion, and more profound than just on a physical level. It is really the closest thing to nirvana that I have found thus far. His personal warmth and gentle strength are an integral part of the total therapeutic encounter. I had the opportunity to visit him twice, and each massage was not only unique unto itself, but also uplifted me into a much better, but different, personal place of inner peace and tranquility each time. You should really check him out for yourself. Thanks for listening.

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)
