Chaya has devoted her life to living passionately with purpose, towards her goal of peak performance and inner peace. In the face of unfortunate circumstances, she's learned how to transmute her personal challenges into positive forces to find deeper truths and inner paths to healing and personal freedom, emerging with distinction as a teacher of substance.
A gifted and radiant educator and program presenter, Chaya is recognized for her holistic, personalized,therapeutic and transformative applications of Ayurveda, Massage and Yoga Therapy and her vast amount of body/mind knowledge from her decades of training and experience as a holistic health educator and performing artist, that inform her practice of skillfully tailored programs and services for her clients' success in achieving deep health and profound evolution.
"So glad I met Chaya. I was on a mission to find a good massage therapist after getting massaged by several therapists. Chaya gave me that exceptional massage I was craving. She gave me what I call, a massage with intention. Her certifications and training in different massage techniques is stellar. Now I can settle into a two week routine massage and know each one will help me feel my best. Be sure to make an appointment now. You won’t regret it!"
Bob The Solar Guy, Gainesville, FL
"The amount of things I learned from Chaya was tremendous. Her approach to life, to treating others, as well as yourself, is powerful. What Chaya teaches is valuable to know for every person - from young to old. She advocates an approach to life that enriches daily routines and brings overall fulfillment."
Olga Sinnreich, Marketing Guru at The Underdog
"Chaya is amazing, knowledgeable and sensitive. This may be the life changing experience I've been waiting for!"
Anna Rabatin, Therapist, Venice, FL
"Chaya's capacity to reach in for the spiritual pertinence was at moments, breathtaking."
Jane Schaeffer, Educator, Yoga Teacher, VT
"I just thought I would write and give you an update and a huge thank you. I've been off prescription medications now for about 2 weeks and continuing to follow your plan (mostly)....so even though you are not a doctor, you're the only one who has been able to come up with a plan that has turned things around for me, so thank you very much!!"
Ken Willa, Software Developer, Jacksonville, FL
"I've been to many massage therapists and hands down this was the best I have had in a long time. Chaya took her time and really connected with what I was feeling and what my body needed. She definitely has healing hands."
Sara Emmanuel, CEO Talking Heads, Gainesville, FL
"As an entrepreneur, one of the things I haven’t done well is take care of myself... I naturally put everyone else’s priorities ahead of my own. Recently, I decided that I was going to make my health and self-care a priority and a massage has been a great way to relieve my stress, relax, and have a peaceful break from my chaotic world. I highly recommend Chaya! She is professional and very caring! Thank you Chaya! "
Collin Austin, CEO & Founder of Paint The Wall & New Scooters 4 Less, Gainesville, FL
"My meeting with Chaya was amazing and seems to have launched me on a new deepened track for health and well-being. Although I have been consuming natural and organic foods, doing yoga and deepening my spiritual practice for years, Ayurvedic approaches feel like the next level in expanding my experience with healing and good health. So grateful to have found Chaya and this Healing Arts center."
Casey Eckels, Retired, Boynton Beach, FL
"Chaya was very knowledgeable and thorough. I learned a lot and can't wait to follow her guidance to better myself and my practice! Her warm nature is welcome and inviting. It was well worth the trip! "
Jamie McCullough, Teacher, Parrott, GA
"Had my first massage here - I found Chaya~Sharon to be very skilled and knowledgeable as well as compassionate - she knows her anatomy and correct way to massage muscle and tissues in the right direction, right pressure, etc. for the best therapeutic results! I'm a nurse so I was impressed!"
Holly M, RN, Gainesville, FL
"I worked with Chaya as an intern for about eight months, and really learned so much through her professionalism and her dedication to healing work. Through this process, I was able to gain many communication skills as well as the skills to lead a balanced and productive life. Throughout my time with her I was able to see and appreciate all the knowledge and expertise she has acquired throughout her lifetime, and it was wonderful to support her in her work. Chaya is an exemplary health professional. Every conversation with her was transformative in its own way, and I highly recommend her services, or the internship program, to anyone interested in obtaining the skills for a balanced life. "
Zoe Lackey, English & Oral Communication Sr. at The University of Florida
