About the Gaia Physical Therapy Team

what makes gaia unique

Gaia Women’s Physical Therapy and Wellness is the first of its kind in the West Virginia panhandle. We have recently expanded the ability to serve parts of Maryland and Virginia in-person and through each state virtually.

We are passionate about providing quality, evidence-based care to each woman in a way which is holistic, individualized, compassionate and professional. If you need to be heard, to be supported, to be informed, and treated in a way in which no other health care provider has, Gaia Women’s PT is the provider for you.

maggie gise

founder & physical therapist

Over the past 11 years of experience as a PT, and nearly 9 years as a mom, Maggie has discovered her passion for helping women navigate their own bodies at all stages of life, but especially the passage into motherhood.  

After struggling with her own postpartum journey and having to travel between several states to find quality and specific care, she decided this was a service that needed to be provided locally.

Now, Maggie is on a mission to educate, support, and promote optimal women's care in the Panhandle. She is eager to create a place where prenatal and postpartum care is natural, routine, and available.  

When Maggie is not treating patients, you can find her hiking with her husband Joe, living life with Paige and Tori, cooking up snacks in the kitchen, exploring local vineyards or breweries, or snuggling up with the pups Bruno and Gordy.  She also enjoys adventures in running and kayaking. 

Maggie graduated from the University of Maryland Eastern Shore in 2012 with a Doctorate of Physical Therapy.  She is a certified Pregnancy and Postpartum Corrective Exercise Specialist with specific postdoctoral training in obstetrics and pelvic health.

Christine force

physical therapist

Christine earned her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from the University of Maryland Baltimore in 2010.  With over 13 years of experience as a physical therapist, and 10 years of experience as a mom, she is eager to support other women in achieving optimal health and wellness.

Christine has spent much of her career serving pediatric patients, but has always had a lingering interest in pursuing women's health. As the owner of a children's yoga studio for a number of years, she specifically sought out opportunities to support new moms through infant massage and mommy and me yoga classes. She has pursued continuing education in pelvic health, yin and restorative yoga, and mindfulness, and believes strongly in a holistic approach when working with her patients.

When she isn't working, you'll find Christine spending time with her family outdoors. She is happiest tending to her garden and hunting down native plants to photograph. During colder months you'll find her operating the scoreboard for her son Brandon's ice hockey team. 

Anne Unhoch

Occupational therapist

Anne graduated from Shenandoah University with her Doctorate in Occupational Therapy and has an undergraduate degree in early childhood education. She is passionate about serving women and children to enhance overall quality of life. She has always had an interest in pelvic health and having dealt with a few struggles of her own during pregnancy and postpartum, she is motivated to foster individualized care to empower women to achieve their goals. Anne has completed many continuing education courses on various topics related to pelvic health and postpartum rehabilitation. Anne received the Occupational Therapy Dean’s Award, which recognizes an outstanding graduate who demonstrates academic excellence, professionalism and potential for future contributions to the profession. Her capstone project was creating a six-week, workshop-style program on Diastasis Recti Abdominis (DRA) to serve postpartum women and increase overall quality of life.


Anne is a new mom who enjoys spending time with her husband, Hunter and son, Owen. Currently, they are working on attending a major league baseball game in each MLB stadium, and visiting all 50 states. She also enjoys scrapbooking and spending time outside with her two dogs, Eva and Huk. She is always up for new adventures to make memories that will last a lifetime.

Amanda bowers

patient care coordinator

Amanda is our Patient Care Coordinator here at Gaia Women’s Physical Therapy & Wellness. She is the first friendly voice you hear when you call and the first face you see when you walk in.

Amanda served in the United States AirForce right out of high school. After finishing her military career, she spent 15 years working both in the medical field as well as administrative. For the last several years she was a successful small business owner. 

She is a mother of five and when she is not taking care of our patients here in the office she is watching her kids at soccer games, cheering her husband on in Crossfit competitions, hanging out at the best distilleries and breweries, and checking out the most amazing restaurants. During her down time she loves photography, reading, snuggling with her dog, caring for her plants (a new love thanks to Gaia), and being with friends and family.
