Deep Connection Massage

Deep Connection Massage (DCM), developed by Javi de Gabriel, guides the mind to silence, fostering a heart connection. This approach emphasizes presence and attention in touching the body. The massage focuses on quality to instill awareness, creating a moving meditation experience. By reaching deeper layers, the aim is to access one's essence, establishing an intimate connection with the body. This method invites a personal connection with oneself, incorporating breath awareness for a mind-heart connection and inner stillness.

The Training

24 hours training


This introductory training is the initial step in becoming a Deep Connection Massage (DCM) therapist. It's a 3-day practical course with 24 hours of hands-on practice. You'll learn DCM movements, self-exploration, and self-inquiry practices to confidently deliver deep connection massage sessions.​

Who is this training for?

Level 1 DCM Training is for those passionate about touch and holding space, be it therapists or anyone keen on learning about massage therapy. No specific prerequisites make it suitable for individuals at all levels. Whether you're a novice or experienced, you'll only need enthusiasm and willingness to embrace Deep Connection Massage.

What you will learn:
  • Establish a safe and welcoming space for your clients.

  • Acquire skills to provide a 90-minute DCM session.

  • Discover diverse DCM movements tailored for various body parts.

  • Explore essential steps for effective session starting and closure, benefiting both you and your client.

  • Master practical techniques for addressing emotional and tension release during sessions.

  • Develop communication skills applicable to both your massage practice and daily life.

  • Cultivate self-awareness through engaging somatic flow exercises.

  • Delve into trauma-informed massage therapy practices and nervous system regulation.


I wanted to explore developing my "energetic" hands, inspired by a fantastic massage experience in Ibiza with Javi. Completely centered in his strength and gentleness, Javi creates safety with subtle precision. Integrating local and full-body massages from various techniques and cultures opens individuals completely. Despite the struggle to master this, I'm determined to achieve the serene masseur I aspire to be. This massage form transcends any dubious connotations, emphasizing pure human-to-human connection. Despite the challenges, group training focused on relaxation, self-centering, and opening to others yields beautiful bonds of safety and love. A sincere recommendation for Javi and heartfelt thanks to fellow participants.
