What’s in a name?
Well, it all began with OKCupid, California, and hip pain. Studying the effects that herbs and oils have on our body, and combining them with my extensive training in massage therapy, corrective fitness, meditation and yoga, has been my passion for over 2 decades.

In 2015 I met my husband Andres, while out in California to visit my family. I logged into OkCupid on a whim and saw this really cool guy and reached out straight away. Andres was working in the medical cannabis industry; from plant cultivation to product development. When we met it was instant love, personally and professionally. He taught me about the powerful effects that cannabis has on our body. I was intrigued to say the least. Together we created synergy with all sorts of therapeutic oils, herbs, crystals and cannabis; using the formulas I had developed over the past decade as our foundation.
My dad had two radical hip replacements, many shoulder replacements, and two knee replacements. After his last hip replacement, doctors told him he would never walk again. He is a believer in natural healing and over the course of several years, rehabbed himself back to not just walking, but dancing and biking! Still, my dad had chronic hip pain, so Andres and I decided to make him something based on all of our experiments. We made a CBD salve and when he put it on his hip for the first time, he said, “I’m not sure how, but my hip pain is gone. I don’t feel any cold or heat, just no pain.” Salvation! Thus Salv.a.tion was born!
We started giving the salve to our therapists, gave it to our clients, and anyone who wanted to try it. The positive feedback was immense and we knew we were on to something. We perfected our line, infused these CBD healing products into our wellness services, and we named our practice Salvation Wellness as a homage to the profound and powerful effects that our little salve has had on the total body wellness of the people we care about.
You can find them at our flag ship location in Jersey City, as well as boutiques, wellness studios, gyms, and natural markets.
