I believe EVERYONE deserves to feel healthy, empowered and supported. 

But the truth is, not everyone does. And I want to change that...with your help.

My name is Crystal McLain, and it's my mission to empower people with the tools, education and support that allows them to get CREATIVE with their self care, and live the life they deserve.  

But what does it mean to get CREATIVE with self care?

Great question.

Well, to be creative with your self care means to build the confidence and curiosity to explore your mind, body and behaviors, and experiment with NEW ways of supporting your total wellbeing,,,instead of just subscribing to the same ol' BS that's no longer serving you.

And the reason this is SO flippin' important is because when it comes to our wellness, we're not one-size-fits all. 

Here at Crystal McLain Creative (CMC), I offer resources and services that teach you how to build a creative, and curious mindset, determine what YOUR true wellness needs are, and find new, exciting ways to care for your ol' meat machine and mind.

I understand that we all have different needs, budgets and commitment levels, so I strive to provide a little something for everyone.


Coaching is a partnership focused on developing the client’s awareness, thinking, and actions in order to help them identify and achieve their goals.

Coaching is great if you're 100% ready to dig deep and make a commitment to yourself and your wellbeing.




Manual therapy is a practice that focuses on supporting the body's natural healing process by working with the neuromuscular and fascial systems, as well creating a safe space for the mind and body to let go of tension. 

Manual therapy is perfect for those who are looking to reconnect with their body and relieve physical and emotional stress.




Because services like coaching and manual therapies are expensive and time consuming, they may not be accessible to everyone. That's why I host a blog and podcast (Unlocking Wellness) that teaches folks how to develop practical skills and discover effective resources that produce similar benefits. 

People who become Patreon Members not only support the work and expense that comes from creating the blog and podcast, but they also receive:

  • Bonus content, tools & tutorials, exclusive to members
  • Access to the self care support group
  • An invitation to live Zoom Events
  • Discounts to my shop
  • Care packages in the mail!

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



  • I'm a licensed holistic massage therapist, self care coach, 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 lack of self worth, addictions, and chronic pain. I'm also continuously searching for new approaches for my own self care so I can keep up with the inevitability of an ever-changing body in an ever-evolving world. 

  • 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 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!
