"My swedish massage with Hillary was sublime. She's is skilled at making you feel relaxed, calm, and pampered. I have already booked a follow-up appointment for myself and a barefoot bar session for my husband. "

"I have seen around 20 different therapists in the DFW area, from the spa at the Ritz to a neighbor doing side work. My experience with Hillary was hands-down the best bodywork I have had in the area and possibly ever. She was knowledgeable, clean, and most importantly, very good at what she does. I will be back and will recommend her to anyone looking for some relief!"

"This was the best massage I've ever had in my life, and I've had many. She was professional, the room is so cozy and conducive to really relaxing and letting go. She is a miracle worker with her feet! It was my first time getting reiki and it was a pretty amazing experience. I highly recommend Hillary Arrieta and will definitely be going back!!"

"Hands down the best massage experience ever. My muscles feel soft and supple the day after. I will only ever get barefoot massages from now on and Hillary is the best. She made me feel comfortable, at ease, and targeted all the areas that needed tending to. I'm looking forward to my next appointment!"

"Hillary really cares about her clients, always remembering specifics, and taking the time to listen to special requests. She is always learning new techniques and modalities. Massage therapy is more of a life path for her, rather than just an occupation. "

"Well, what can I say? I am a regular consumer of massage, and prefer deep tissue techniques when available. The Ashiatsu technique is one that I have not tried, but can honestly say that it will be hard to ever go back to anything else. Neck and back pain was relieved instantly during the session, and without the typical sharp pressure that occurs from the use of hands (or elbows). Hillary, thank you for the amazing session, I'm a convert. "

"I received my first massage from Hillary today and re-booked immediately. I was impressed from the moment I walked in the door. The receiving area was calming and smelled divine. I filled out my paperwork and we talked about my needs, then Hillary walked me into the treatment room which made me relax right away. Gentle, soothing music, a waterfall, and a tibetan singing bowl were some of the elements I noticed. The room was light enough to see to undress and move about comfortably, but dark enough to feel instant peace. The few flameless candles and little white lights were just perfect. Hillary said to undress to my comfort level and directed me to begin face-down for my ashiatsu massage. I was also really impressed with the smooth, buttery soft sheets ... this makes a huge difference to me as a client who has experienced a huge number of scratchy sheets rubbing my skin raw during a session. I wasn't kept waiting too long like I have other places; at the perfect time Hillary knocked on the door and came in to get started. The pressure was perfect and I can tell that she is a very intuitive therapist which means a lot to me. Other than asking about the pressure, she was also quiet the entire session which is a huge plus for me because I do not like talking during my massage. I loved everything she did, especially the way she stretched out my spine. It may be just me, but I honestly think I grew a little taller after my session! Once she finished my upper body, before moving to my legs she covered my back with a warm pillow or blanket which was lovely. And when it was time to turn over, she placed a heated neck pillow under my head which was amazing, and later cleaned the lotion off my feet with hot towels. She had perfect rhythm and never felt rushed, nor did she finish "early" like so many other massage therapists. I am very pleased and happy to have found "my person." Upon leaving she let me know she also had packages available which, when broken down, I realized is actually cheaper than the monthly memberships I've had at other "M"assage "E"stablishments before. I also saw that she offers complimentary aromatherapy to every session which I look forward to trying out. The quality of service and attention to detail was unbeatable and there could not have been a more perfect massage therapy experience."

"Hilary is an artist in her profession!! I asked for a firm touch and she delivered. She has a kind and gentle approach. This was the most relaxing experience I've ever had!! I just do not have enough words to describe the hour of absolute pleasure I experienced by the hands of Hilary! I intend to recommend her to anyone that needs a massage and I cannot wait to set my next appointment!!!"

Henry Ruiz
"I've seen Hillary for a couple of years now, and i've had lots of experience with both good and bad massage therapists. Hillary has been the most consistent and beneficial visits that i've had. I go to her because she is very communicative about my needs and she is so intuitive to what my body is telling her. I had a mild back surgery prior to seeing her and i was nervous about seeing anybody. She made me feel very comfortable from the beginning. Her office is very relaxing and even though I enjoy an intensive session i have caught myself falling asleep. I purchase packages because i plan on multiple sessions and i strongly recommend it for anybody seeking absolute relief and therapy. Ive always had chronic back issues after surgery and before I started seeeing Hillary and i have not had to see my doctor since. There is some true benefits to her modalities and ive come to trust her judgement and intuition. Thanks Hillary, from both my family and myself. It is truly appreciated! Henry Ruiz"

"I do not come in nearly enough but EVERY time I do I LOVE it. Hillary is personable without being over the top. Her talents really show through her attention to detail. She always asks what ailments you're having, and even when I don't communicate my needs in the most direct way, she is spot on! Once I was told that I would be hard pressed (I don't think the pun was intended) to find a woman that would give a stronger massage than a man- but man oh man! Is she strong! I always walk away feeling completely relaxed and calm inside. It is a great service all around and I will be coming back for a long time!! "

"I have enjoyed a lot of massages in the past 20 years, This was the first massage I have had by a therapist using her feet. It was awesome. I like a deep massage and my threshold for pain is very high. Hillary was able to apply more pressure with her feet than a therapist using their hands are able too. The massage I received was fantastic and I am coming back. Thank you Hillary "

"I originally purchased a "living social" massage voucher almost 3 years ago and it was the best thing I ever did. Hilary has been amazing and seems to know where I hurt and what part if my body needs attention. She has a way about her that instantly makes you relax and trust her. I have tried Swedish massage, hot stones, barefoot massage and Shirodhara. Each type has a necessary place to address all that makes me hurt or slows me down. Hilary has an innate ability to heal and melt you on the table. Schedule an appointment with Hilary, it will be the best appointment that you ever made."

"I've had deep tissue massages previously but often they aren't the most comfortable. I read about the Barefoot Bar Massage as an alternative and decided to give it a try with Hillary. I simply loved it! It's deep tissue but very relaxing and covers all areas of the body. The entire massage exceeded my expectations when I entered. Hillary is wonderful and works hard to structure the massage around the specific needs of the client."

"For years I have tried several versions of massage therapies with minimal or ineffective results. The first time I experimented with the Ashiatzu massage, the experience was unbelievably efficient, soothing, relaxing and most importantly the best way to alleviate years of back aches, neck discomforts and excellent results with problems with my hands no doctor has been able to figure out in over 20 years. Hillary is the second person to perform Ashiatzu and I was not disappointed. She performs and presents herself in a professional manner, is very friendly and focuses on problem areas to meet your needs. It is clearly evident that she has extensive studies in the technique and knows how to practice the therapy in the most effective way possible. I am looking forward to our next session and many more to come. Thank you Hillary :-)"

"This was my first visit to Gaia. The massage room was so inviting, with the comforting music, the trickle of the water fountain, and the oh so warm and soft massage table. Hillary had just the right touch for me (I like a firm massage), and was very helpful in relieving some of the pain I was having in certain areas. I was able to sleep the following two nights with very little pain in my shoulder, which before, the pain was so bad it kept me awake. I have already asked my son to take advantage of her Christmas special, and get me that for Christmas, and I plan on making this at least a once a month treat for myself. I hope you will make an appointment with Hillary and experience it for yourself. You deserve it. "

"My kids gave me a Groupon gift for a 60 minute massage for Mothers Day this year. We have had a very stressful 6-8 months coping with the tragic loss of my 9 month old grand-daughter and they said they want me to pamper myself and just relax a little bit. I was not really sure what to expect since this was my first professional massage ever! So, I called to schedule my appointment and actually had to reschedule it 3 times. Hillary was so understanding and kind. She rescheduled me each time without hesitation. When I finally arrived to Gaia's Massage & Bodywork, Hillary made me feel very welcomed and comfortable. She took me back to a tranquil-like room and let me get ready. Her touch was very soothing and to my surprise, I was actually relaxing my entire body and my mind. My massage was absolutely wonderful and such a great experience for me! I am looking forward to my second visit with her. Thank you so much, Hillary (and my kids too)! See you again soon! Lisa J. "
