We are committed to giving you quality service at an affordable cost. We limit the hours of massage each of our Therapists perform each day so that you are receiving a great massage every time.
Our company was named Gaia, after the Greek godess of the Earth, the mother of all creation. We feel a deep connection with nature. Our intention is to aid in the healing of our planet Earth through our healing services and classes. We believe that each of us has an impact on the whole. All of the photos on our website were taken by Sarah during hikes, camping and other outdoor adventures.
Our company was created in 2005 in Eau Claire, Wisconsin by Sarah (Pederson) Roeder. We proudly offered our services in the Eau Claire area for five years.
Starting in 2010 we began offering holistic services in Missoula, Montana. We currently have a professional home office in the South Hills neighborhood of Missoula. Current clients are welcome to receive services in this quiet and peaceful setting.
