Kaia Maeve has always been fascinated with the smooth flow of energy through systems. She began her in-depth study of this topic at the age of 11 as a martial artist and went on to earn a second-degree black belt in Taekwando, and a first-degree black belt in Tukong Moosul. She continued her studies with a degree in Exercise Physiology from USC, which she parlayed into a 13-year career as a massage therapist specializing in Five-Element Shiatsu and sports massage. She currently applies this principle as a business therapist for a high-end global database consulting company. Kaia lives in Austin with her husband and three-year-old son.
