Gaby Rivera

grow into health

Massage therapy had always been in the back of my mind, always curious about its benefits and about the alternative aspect of healing. I wish I can say that it had always been my first choice of a career path, but truth be told, it wasn’t. I had been working for over 10 years in the music business, living a very stressful and always fast paced life. I was reaching a point where the day-to-day stress was interfering with my wellbeing.

Great massage, tried cupping which has left me sore and confirmed I am not a cupping enthusiast. Without the cupping the massage was fantastic.

I cannot express fully how relaxed and rejuvenated I feel after the massage. And if youre up for it I recommend the cupping. It has really helped the tension I retain in my shoulders.

I liked her professionalism and that she checked-in on my comfort level all along the way. Ms. Rivera also made a suggestion in terms of treatment (use of cupping) to aid in pain relief for back pain.

Gaby is s skilled massage therapist and is generally completely booked a month in advance. Both of my massages loosened those muscles that were tight and left me feeling relaxed at the end - which is what most want from a massage.

Gaby did an amazing job. You can feel her 'gift' to touch the body and make it feel so relaxed and loved. There is a deep knowledge to heal in her work and the way as she can set 'contact' and talk to your body using her 'magic touch' is amazing. I have no words enough to describe this experience. You must try!!!

Gaby is a real pro! I was looking for someone who could customize the massage to my body, and focus on areas that need attention. She did exactly that. Also, her cupping technique is a wonderful way of loosening up the muscles. I actually felt points of stress disappear. Yay, Gaby!!

Thank you so much! I really enjoyed the massage and will be back for sure. My only suggestion would be to have a digital clock instead of a clock that ticks in order to be fully immersed in the silence and relaxation. See you soon, Gaby!

That was really a fantastic massage. I had cupping for the first time and it really made a difference in the lasting effects of a massage. The only thing I would add is a warmer room.

Unbelievable experience. Gaby takes a "Massage" to a whole different level. She incorporates consideration for personal health issues into her treatment. Gaby's aura is soothing and calm. She is beyond a masseuse, she is a therapist.

Gaby was excellent! She is very nice and very professional . I had an amazing 90 minute very relaxing massage. She incorporated the "cupping" method on my neck and shoulder area, and it was great. I felt great after my session. One of the best massages I ever had. Ami

The cupping was great. The part I did not think was as good was the traditional massage with your hands. I felt that the other part of the massage could have been done with more pressure and more effort. I only felt the effects of the massage for about an hour after, but usually a massage can have lasting effects for me.

Gaby was lovely. She had read my email to her and remembered what I said about what I wanted, so I felt that the service was personalized and she had not wasted my time by asking me to fill out a form that disappeared. The massage itself was super relaxing. At a certain point I lost myself in space completely -- in a good way! She used the cups on me, which I was skeptical about at first -- but it felt really cool. A very different kind of pressure. I am going back and looking forward to it!!

I came to Gaby in a ridiculous amount of pain. My shoulder was completely stiff and I just couldn't function. It was difficult for me to relax during the treatment due to all the stress I was carrying, so I wasn't sure if one treatment would benefit at all. ONE DAY later and my shoulder had movement and the sharp pains were gone. I've already made my next appointment for the following week, so we address the real issue. It's nice to have someone like Gaby with such wealth of knowledge and professionalism.

I have had issues with my neck and back for a while and Gaby really helped ease some of the pain. She listened to my concerns, made recommendations, and ultimately gave me one of the best massages I have ever had. She was also very accommodating with booking times. I will definitely be back.

Amazing healing power in Gaby's hands, you can really feel the benefits after the work has been done. This has been a great experience full of joy and wellness in a very peaceful and relaxing environment. I would like to really recommend this practice to anyone who is looking for a deep and effective path to fix many of issues caused by the daily routine, dedicated sports practitioner or any kind of accidents/injuries like mine (motorcycle accident more than 15 years ago). Excellent job.
