With her rehabilitation background, the new massage therapist at Prime’s Tru Salon & Spa in Salt Lake City has a heart for easing patients’ pain through her practice. What’s more, as a licensed cosmetologist, Autumn Crosby also does facials, manicures, pedicures, body wraps—and even first haircuts for associates’ kids.
Crosby, who joined the salon in February, offers deep-tissue and Swedish massages along with hot stone, injury, pregnancy and shiatsu massages. She is also a certified lymphatic massage therapist.
With seven years of experience and a private practice devoted to older or hospice patients as wellas stroke and heart attack patients, Crosby says she has a unique perspective. “I went to school so I could assist people with chronic pain,” she says, adding that several of her family members suffer with fibromyalgia or other painful diseases. “It was my way of trying to help without pain medication. It kind of helped me find out what I wanted to do with my life.”
Her background has prepared her to work with drivers with back, neck and shoulder pain from operating trucks for hours at a time, she says, yet she has also given therapeutic pregnancy massages to in-house associates and their family members. As a cosmetologist, Crosby also does facials and body wraps. The latter process involves exfoliation, hot towels, and sheets and blankets, “and then you get to take a hot shower in our sauna,” she says. “it’s a very pampering experience.”
Open since March 2021, the spa offers a full range of services, and Crosby enjoys getting acquainted with the Prime family. A self-described “military brat” and daughter of U.S. Coast Guard veterans, she says it has been great to hear the stories of other veterans at Prime.
With a passion for her work, the Syracuse, Utah, resident says she doesn’t mind her 30-mile commute. “I want people to be able to feel good on a daily basis, and that makes me happy and that’s why I do what I do,” Crosby says.
