Crystal has been committed to massage therapy and holistic healing for nearly a decade and is continuously yearning for new ways to perfect her craft every single day. Despite having moved across the country throughout most of her adult life, the Pilsen neighborhood of Chicago has always been the place she considered home. Due to growing up in a traditional Mexican household, Crystal swiftly learned the potential of holistic remedies has on personal health through her grandparents. In 2006, Crystal went on to receive her Associate’s Degree in Occupational Health Sciences with a specialty in Therapeutic Massage from Centura College while she resided with her family in Virginia Beach. Crystal considers natural healing methods to be a large part of her Mexican heritage and family history, which is why she found the transition into massage therapy to be nearly seamless.
Although Crystal’s journey as a massage therapist began a lot like most others, as time moved on she began to discover more about herself and the world around us, and thus began to incorporate spirituality into her methodology. In addition to being a licensed massage therapist, Crystal has gone on to become a certified Reiki master, Craniosacral therapist and a certified Akashic Records practitioner. Her unique background and experiences have allowed Crystal to become a healer unlike any other, one who is constantly pushing herself to become a better therapist and find new methods to better aid her clients on their paths to healing. Crystal opened Verde Wellness & Massage in 2011 with the intention of creating a tranquil atmosphere for everyone who walks through its doors and to try and make the world a more caring and peaceful place one client at a time.Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.
