"Zen Temple Massage"
 
   Anyone know if Zen Temple Massage in Reno is still around? Their website is gone and I've left some messages on the old number and haven't heard anything.

I have been to the Zen Temple a few times and know that Gaia had talked about getting out of the biz by this fall. It seems that is what has happened.

I guess if someone here calls 379-1429 they can post if they got through and if there is a new website, or, got a disconnect message as well. Would be a bummer if they closed as their website was being updated --- though their 'reservation' and 'availability' parts were a little less clear / useable. They had been advertising for a couple of new girls and Gaia had said recently that they had planned on staying around for quite awhile. Maybe that job she was talking about earlier, came through? (and sadly not let Raven take over to keep NURU around)?

Gaia chose to close down her business due to some personal problems and because she was starting school full-time and taking business classes so she wouldn't have to continue doing massage. I wish her the best of luck.

Job / school ... it had been something to the like when she was initially looking to close sometime this year. Would be interesting to know what the 'personal' problems were though ... hopefully they weren't due to a 'client / customer' or such otherwise. And MAYBE, just MAYBE, Raven will make an appearance here on her own even if she does not offer more than what she did at Zen Temple.

But hopefully for Gaia, she digs in to her courses and if Nuru is not to be a 'side' later on in life "just because", she does well with what she DOES decide to do once her schooling is complete.

She was very busy with school and her son and was taking a full load of courses so it left her little time to do the nuru stuff. She's a great gal...and her partner Raven was also in school but I'm sure she graduated by now and moved on to cosmetology.

   HI!!! Its Gaia here....ok so I ghess nobody found out...how funny. No we did not close because of personal issues, school, client relationships or because I didnt operate my business properly...We were FORCED closed by the Nevada Board of Massage Therapists, and City of Reno Business Licensing. We were fortunate we only got a citation and fine....but the loss of my business has cause a great deal of trauma and loss....I'm very sad I had to close cause I built my studios from the ground up....anyway I do appreciate all the clients that have came to see us and said good things...and thank you Ava for moderating this discussion and your kind words.....

Anyway I'm working on a new legit and legal business plan that has to do with Nuru. So I'll be deleting this account...you'll find me on here though don't worry...

HMMMMMMMMM..........................................................................................

As fast as ZEN closed down including the disappearance of the web site, and that there were a few different theories posted here, yeah, we had been curious of what happened. I remember reading that ZEN was going to close eventually as you had another endeavor planned but it fell through so ZEN was going to remain open, to see it go 'bye-bye' kind of quickly. Does make for rumors. I wasn't sure myself either as you can read by my earlier posts, but was rooting your departure was for "GOOD" reasons. (And oddly, I saw a posting on a different site for ZEN, with a "DIFFERENT" phone number, but only once so I did not try to see if it was just that you moved, being nothing else came out after that.) So for what little was posted here, it was about all we had rumors of for the loss of ZEN.

Why you'd delete your ZENGAIA account as little used as it is even though it's been around since July 2009 to open a different account, as once you post the NEW "ZEN" information we'll know who you are anyway ... I'd vote for you keeping ZENGAIA as we know you that way already.

Will be interesting to see what comes out of the venture you are working on now.

That sucks...... Last month they had to cancel my appointment.

I've never tried a Nuru and was finally getting the chance.
Guess I'll never know :(

I was browsing the personals in "the Nickle" a couple weeks ago and saw an ad from "Raven" for massage and wondered if that was her. If she reads this I hope she posts. Zen T was always a nice "go to" place for me.

I am going to say, I do not think so. The "RAVEN" in The Big Nickle, has been advertising there for a "LOOOONG" time.

(a cut and paste from one "google" search page that came up):

> Big Nickel - December 23, 2010
> www.mygazines.com/issue/21873/1
> Dec 23, 2010 Raven, 775- 379-1512. THE MEANING OF LIFE Listen to
> your heart Listen to this CD Change your Life.. Forever! J.R.G. 2790
> Wrondel Way, ...

I don't find the number "specifically" though on any 'phone number web look-ups" such as where it may say "Reno BackPage" on the heading or description.

I had been wanting to go there as well; the various reasons being either a personal problem, going to school, what-have-you that Gaia closed it abruptly I hope all goes well for her. But as I said above, bummer that Raven was not allowed to continue on the 'idea / business herself if she had wanted to.

Zen Temple closed. I know Raven in my personal life and they couldn't keep it running properly I guess.

Just as a clarification: I am really only an acquaintance of hers and only just recently learned of Zen Temple's demise. I do not know if Raven is still working.

it's a bit confusing because if you are looking for the post that bumped this thread up, you usually look at the end, where i am now...

but the actual post that bumped this thread up is from the former owner of the massage parlor and it explains that the state and city FORCED them out of business... it is located within the middle of this thread...

scroll back...

   That;'s what happens when you have people without massage licenses advertising massage.....the board can force them to close. No business license, no massage licenses, you can be arrested for just stating to an undercover that you are going to give him a massage if you don't have the license to back it up....verbage is everything. And wtf is a NURU....

Nuru is the Japanese word for slippery. I think it involves two girls and a guy getting slippery on a rubber mattress.
