Gal Rachimi, HHP
I was born and raised in Israel. When I finished my mandatory service in the IDF, (Israel Defense Forces) I began my journey in the world. Israel is a place of intense energy that didn’t agreed with my point of view to life. So I started traveling. I have visited different countries and continents, but was really impacted by my 8 month visit in India. It changed the way I related to God, life, to people and to myself. I felt connected to more gratitude and joy of simple things. It was at this point I decided I wanted to be of service to people and to the planet. Bodywork and massage as ways of connecting appealed to me.
In the summer of 2004, I entered the Body Mind College (BMC) in San Diego? and started my HHP training. I studied with some great teachers such as Dr. Barry Green, Dave Garza HHP, and others who made major impacts on my life and my practice, by showing me ways to connect to my body and trust my intuitions. I continue to look for their classes and workshops for the pleasure of learning from them.
About a year after began studying at BMC, I quit my day job to focus only on bodywork. It has been a dream come true for me since I feel this is what I am destined to do with my life. I have practiced with BMMC clinic for over three years and have worked with a chiropractor as well.
In September of 2007, I started my most mature practice here in beautiful Ocean Beach, California. It’s called THAT’S YOUR BODY. Between 2009-2010, I was teaching at Body Mind College. In 2011, I got into the drug and alcohol recovery field and started providing my services to rehabilitation facilities.
Later that year, along with four other health and wellness experts, I was invited by Dave Towe, the Founder of the Wave Academy. to an exclusive Water therapy training called Watsu.
Massage, or what I prefer to call "Bodywork," continues to be the most meaningful experience for me. I am doing the work I believe- in to serve the needs of my clients for the betterment of themselves. This, in turn, serves our wonderful planet - I am fulfilling my ultimate goal.
