They draw from a variety of deep tissue and relaxation techniques to address the specific concerns of the client, promote relaxation, and reduce the effect of both physical and emotional stress on the body.
Gabriel aspires to create a welcoming space for all clients and finds power in the idea that "there is no neutral body from which our bodies deviate" (to quote Aurora Levins Morales).
