About GAIA 

The ancient Greek goddess known as mother nature, GAIA Skincare products are handmade in Britain using traditional production methods. The roots of GAIA Skincare go back to Greek mythology and their natural approach to medicine. Gaia, Mother Nature, was the first Greek goddess and considered the very soul of the earth. Mother Nature is always working to maintain harmony, wholeness, and balance within the environment and GAIA Skincare connects deeply with these energies. We give back through nature with our innovative products and treatment protocols. Specialised treatments essentials for beginners and advanced treatments for the more experienced therapists. Rituals for those guests that need to be nurtured and cared for. We are also proud to be the Training provider for SATCC. A leading provider for  standard-setting for oncology touch treatments. We provide a CIBTAC recognised qualification for our Affinity Cancer Experience course that you do not need to be GAIA trained to complete.
