About five years ago, Devine Wellness and Relaxation was born when Crystal Whittaker opened her licensed massage business in Ellensburg, Washington. She had a long-term goal of opening a retail market and in 2020, that dream became a reality. She wanted to only have products that were hand made, local, eco-friendly, sustainable, reusable, fair trade, and a bulk section. She, being an opportunist, acquired a historic building in downtown Ellensburg at 200 E 4th Avenue, in the middle of a global pandemic, and utilized the time of the pandemic to renovate it. Her family helped with the renovation effort. Today, the market at Devine Wellness and Relaxation has a large assortment of products. From the expansion, Devine Apothecary was born where the business makes some of its specialty products such as bath bombs, shower steamers, beard wash, lip balm, soaps, and lotion bars. The sky is the limit when you make body care products yourself! The building is a 3,000 sq. ft. building and houses the wellness center mainly in the back. The wellness services are massage therapy, hypnotherapy, body talk, mind-body bridge, reiki, reflexology, ear candling, an esthetician, chakra balancing, and a multi-purpose room that houses an online yoga studio, or is available for other services upon inquiry. The business, as a dynamic duo, draws in a variety of people who come for the wellness services or others who come for the unique shopping experience. There is something for everyone at the retail store. Many people comment on how good it smells when they walk in the door. People that stop by to see what the excitement is all about said they could spend hours in the store.
