“Today, as Gal was working on my left foot, I felt like I was introduced to that foot for the first time. It was as if I was meeting a person, or a team of loyal friends whom I had never taken the time, or attention to get to know. I told him, “Gal, you’re an animator – every place you touch comes to life.” I see Gal weekly and this happens to me every time I lie on his table. Through Gal’s artistry, I have gotten to know my body. His work both grounds me and lifts me up. If you are looking for a massage, he’s as good as they come. If, however, you are also looking for a deeper connection with yourself and your life, he is in a class of his own.”

"It is more than a massage, he gives keen insight to: diet, stretching, breathing, life in general. He really knows his stuff!"
- Tarek Albaba
"I have worked with Gal for several years and he is a very effective therapeutic massage practitioner. I would gladly recommend his work."
- Barry Green, PHD HHP, founder of Body Mind College and co-founder of IPSB
"Focused, connected and present, Gal is one of the few practitioners who takes 'Massage' to the level of 'Massage Therapy.' His love and passion for bodywork is a gift that he brings to every session."
- Kat Green, HHP, Yoga Alliance RYT-E500 Director of Mind Heart Yoga
"Gal Rachimi has an incredible gift of healing. I started coming to Gal for help with severe neck, back and head pain. I have had cervical fusions and artificial disks put in my neck, and I was left with extreme muscle spasms and pain. I have tried many different traditional and alternative therapies, including massage with other practitioners, none of which proved useful for any length of time.
Gal does fantastic bodywork, with an intuitive sense of what your body needs to
loosen up and begin healing. After an hour session, I feel lighter, more relaxed, and the most pain free that I have felt in seven years. He works magic with his hands. My pain is less each time he works on me, so that I am moving in the direction of a much healthier and pain free life.
Gal has a wisdom that seems beyond his years, and he shares insights and offers exercises as well as philosophies that have truly helped me develop an outlook that is leading me towards a healthier life. When you have a session with Gal, you get not only a great massage; you also get tools to enhance your own
