Having always been interested in the human body and the way it works, Gaia began her journey with the study of Swedish massage. She attended the New Mexico Academy of Healing Arts and was awarded her massage therapy diploma in 1997. Fresh out of school, she opened a successful practice.
Gaia soon realized that massage and just working the tissue was not enough, so she began to search for more tools to gain access to the holistic being, the body and mind. She studied systems including La Stone Therapy, Crystal Light Therapy, Integrated Energy Therapy, Reiki, Marconic Energy Healing, Ortho-Bionomy and Thai massage.
