I offer massage therapy drawing from Swedish, deep tissue, and trigger point techniques. My approach is collaborative as I work with each client to facilitate their unique goals and healing process.

Why massage therapy?

There are countless benefits of massage therapy on every system in our bodies. Massage can facilitate physical healing and is an effective tool for managing stress, which can translate into:

  • Decreased anxiety.

  • Enhanced sleep quality.

  • Greater energy.

  • Improved concentration.

  • Increased circulation.

  • Reduced fatigue.

About Gabriel

Gabriel is a graduate of The Massage School, Boston and member of the Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals. Gabriel is currently an independent practitioner at Davis Square Healing Arts in Somerville, MA. 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). Gabriel has experience providing affirming bodywork for LGBQ, transgender, and non-binary clients and has attended numerous trainings and workshops specific to serving the LGBTQ community. 

Outside of work, Gabriel is an avid reader, amateur cook, and Netflix enthusiast. On warm days you might spot them biking around Boston.
