Hey, I'm Crystal McLain and I facilitate mind-body wellness by teaching Creative Self Care.

What the heck does that mean?

Well, it means a bunch of things, but essentially Creative Self Care is making decisions about your health and wellness from a place of confidence and curiosity, instead of shame, guilt or fear.

Life. Is. Hard. And it can leave us feeling all kinds of ways. We're exhausted, overwhelmed, anxious, depressed, have low self esteem, and (worst of all) we feel stuck there, because all of those trendy self care hacks don't work. 

And that's where my work begins.

My mission is to foster a fun and safe environment where folks feel inspired to learn about their REAL needs, and empowered to take charge of their TOTAL wellbeing so they can live healthy, peaceful and fulfilling lives.

CMC is a place to:

  • Challenge your definitions of "self care" and "self worth", and rewrite them with authority and authenticity.

  • Learn about your WHOLE self and your needs- mind, body and mother-lovin' soul.

  • Build curiosity and confidence while learning to trust your body, your choices and your intuition. 

  • Explore wellness and empowerment practices that are interesting, effective and sustainable.

  • Feel valued, accepted and supported, just as you are.

At CMC I offer four ways you can start getting creative with your self care.  

I'm making the most of the internet.

I host a blog and podcast where we learn how to develop an empowering mindset, expand our self awareness, and increase our body consciousness.

We also learn about the multiple aspects of self, and explore new ways of caring for the mind, body and soul.

I'm also on Instagram, Facebook and occasionally  TikTok, where I sprinkle helpful nuggets of inspiration. 

Imagine a place where everyBODY belongs.

I host an incredible community of allies and advocates that promotes safety, health and wellness for ALL.

We're inspiring and supporting one another as we strengthen ourselves individually, and amplifying our power collectively.

When you join our community (The Dream Team), you can gain benefits such as:

  • An invitation to our private online support group and events
  • Bonus blog & podcast content including personal stories, self care tools & tutorials, and other helpful resources
  • Personal care packages in the mail!

But the best part about becoming a member is knowing that a portion of your membership funds will be donated to grassroots organizations that are aiding those most in need.

Memberships are funded through Patreon and start at just $3!



It's one thing to think about creative self care. It's another to actually follow through. 

If you've been on this whole self care journey for a while, but still feel like you're stuck, it's time to ask for help.

Mentoring will help you figure out your obstacles, discover your true wellness needs, explore self care routines that feel effective, fulfilling and authentic, and help you make a sustainable plan for the future.

If you're ready to take the next step, I'd love to tell you more!

I know first hand how powerfully healing and transformational safe, therapeutic touch can be. And sometimes the first step towards wellness is feeling safe and secure within our own body.

At my practice I offer a mix of gentle, hands-on modalities that support the body's natural healing power, and instill a sense of confidence and calm.


  • I'm a licensed massage therapist, craniosacral practioner, empowerment coach, self care mentor, and life-long creative person, who's been in the mind-body biz since 2009. I've worked with hundreds of folks, facilitating their health and wellness goals.

  • I speak from personal experience, having overcome my own self-damaging beliefs and behaviors.

  • I'm nerdy, sassy, love to laugh, and I swear like a friggin' pirate. 

  • I'm a relentless researcher, who's dedicated to sharing all that I learn in a fun and simple way!

  • Science steers my ship, but I hold a special place in my heart for all the magical, mystical woo. 

  • I'm pro-abortion and gender affirming procedures, and support LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC communities. So, if you're down for diversity and body autonomy, we're totally going to get along.




Crystal's commitment to her own accountability, along with the support of the group gave me the nudge to create big positive change!
I find myself on board with Crystal's work as it supports changes I am trying to make in my life. I am moving from survive mode to thrive mode with Crystal's help!
Clearly seeing the problem and solving it.
This is just what she does. She is deeply knowledgeable and intuitive about how our bodies work. And she's funny as hell!

Crystal brings a rare combination of intuition and common sense which, when mixed with her joyful attitude, enormous integrity and creative style, make her an ideal companion on any journey.
