Gabriel was kind and I'd say he has a very real and deep gift. The four stars are, in my heart and mind, in relation to mastery. I feel like he is close. For me, I could have used a few less words and slightly deeper containment. But this is minor. Most he words were helpful and the containment surely had depth. The work I was able to do was deep and very helpful. Truly.

Gab listens attentively. He is a gifted massage therapist, always senstive to my individual needs. I am now scheduling appointments about every other week. Massage is critical to my health, reducing stress and improving my physical health.
by Marcie on Oct 10
I appreciate the hour long massage (which tends to be longer). Scheduling a 90 minute session is even better.

Gab is quite simply the best and most intuitive and professional I’ve ever had the pleasure to work with. His healing touch put my body back into alignment and I left the massage feeling pain free and perfectly content, both body and soul.
by Alyssa on Aug 28
Gab has an amazing ability to rest peacefully in the calm waters NO MATTER WHAT my internal experience is, as someone who has had a wild ride in trauma, it's really helpful to have someone like Gab hold steady while my personal world makes life altering shifts. It's magic, it's healing and it's powerful. I would highly recommend his work to anyone looking to drop in deep.

Gab is very good at what he does. The only thing I don't like is so many emails

I have been seeing kate for many years, I met her at the Finger lakes School of Massage. she is very professional and really listens to what your asking for.susie

Thai Massage with Kate is a mind- and body-opening experience that falls in a sweet zone that triangulates somewhere between massage, yoga, and Shiatsu. Kate's pressure is spot-on, her strength and endurance is impressive, and her conscientious, compassionate care lets me feel completely at ease. I emerge out of a Thai Massage session feeling totally relaxed, highly aware of my body, and more fluid in my movement. Thank you, Kate!

Felt very comfortable with the therapist.
by Lance on Jun 21
I have been a client of Kate's for a couple of years. I consistently get a great massage. Each session is different depending on my current aches and pains. Kate is always a student of massage, and is already more knowledgeable than any therapist I have ever had. She is also communicative and flexible when it comes to scheduling. Simply put, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Kate to anyone looking for all the wonderful things a professional massage therapy session (or two, or three...) has to offer.
