Christyn Rittenhouse is the owner of Smooth, located in Rockford Il.  For over two decades she has specialized in full body waxing, custom blended facials, and  body treatments. Christyn only uses products of the highest quality.

Relax, you’re in good hands, she’s also known as the kinder, gentler esthetician... because waxing doesn’t have to hurt that much!

As for facials and body treatments her goal is to create a warm, welcoming space and time for deep relaxation and calming the vagus nerve to help you release tension and anxiety and lull you into parasympathetic state where you can unwind and recharge. 

She also holds a B.A. in Psychology, and minor in Sociology from Northern Illinois University, and is also a life coach through CTI (Coach Training International), and PQ trained (Positive Intelligence, PQ coaching). 

Her focus is on clarity, empowerment, and taming the inner critic (rumination/saboteurs)...AND clutter coaching/consulting.  New website to come

Christyn has traveled in the U.S. extensively and has spent substantial time in the Seattle area, New Orleans, and Akumal, Mexico. She also has worked part-time with a local artist in studio and as an assistant working art fairs across the country. When not traveling or at work, she can often be found creating in her kitchen, kayaking on any body of water she can get on top of, or snorkeling just underneath.
