Who Is Chrystal?
I want to explain a little about the healing aspect to the treatments I provide at Pure Spa Wellness.
This is not your traditional spa, I am a Trauma-Informed Wellness Practitioner that uses healing touch holistic skin care, reiki healing energy and self-care and wellness coaching as tools to facilitate deep relaxation, emotional healing, self-love and empowerment. My services are not your typical every day spa services, even though they may be presented as such.
For years I have been looking for a way to help others remove the heavy burden of stress in their lives that lead to health care issues. I have created a menu that will help you do just that by offering services that help with deep relaxation, removing emotional blocks and normalizing self-care and self-love.
I take so much joy in making my guests look and feel their best because how you feel on the inside is a direct correlation to your physical health, mental health and how you look on the outside.
With Pure Spa there are no unexpected surprises. I bring a safe and reliable service to each and every one of my guests, with the quality, cleanliness, and transparency that’s needed and deserved.
What sets my company apart is my relentless focus on cleanliness, health, relaxation and overall wellness. My vision is to be a company who makes people look and feel great, improving their confidence and self-esteem, and to add a little charm to take on the day.
Q: What should I expect from Pure Spa?
A: My services are by appointment only because my goal is to offer each guest a very personal and relaxing experience. Each service has built in time for pre and post relaxation, which means there is time to fill out the intake forms while chatting about the goals for your visit, basic health and diet, and relaxation needs or just to vent about life. We are living in a time where we are overwhelmed, scared and rushed, and it takes a toll on our health mentally and emotionally. So I want to offer a space where people can feel a sense of escape from all the stress we are dealing with daily.
