Our Story

CURE de Repos is a new era concept with old world principles, who dare to breathe new life into Chestnut Hill with their first store opening. Transcend into a world of luxury, hi-end products, smells that tantalize the senses, and treatments that leave you wanting more.

Expect your customer service experience to be cosmopolitan, polished and finished. Our mantra is to exceed all client expectations beyond our capacity, and to fulfill that boutique experience which has missed the mark, in regards to these large corporations that seem to be taking over the market. CURE is a resurrection of personal touch, hi-end service, outstanding customer service, cleanliness, and the ultimate boutique spa experience

Geri Massott L.E, L.M.T, R.M.T, B.F, CHt.

I've always been a searcher of knowledge, truth & a better way of living. After becoming a Esthetician from Rizzieri's School of Beauty in 2004, I studied Ayurvedic medicine & Reiki becoming a Master Teacher. I've worked in Spas on the Main Line, Delaware County and Feasterville as well as opening my own shop in 2012. I've waxed, peeled, massaged, microdermed, dermaplaned and provided skin care for hundreds of women & men for over 10 years. In 2005, I became a Massage Therapist specializing in Reflexology, Lymphatic Massage, ShiroDhara, Myofacial Release, Cranio Sacral, Quantum Touch, Cupping as well as other modalities. In my "spare time" I studied Mediumship, Psychic Arts and Hypnotherapy doing advance work in Past Life Regression. When I learned the Bars through Access Consciousness I realized this was a way to change people energetically. I learned Body Processes, SOP, Foundation, COP and Talk to the Entities. I teach the Bars and am able to provide CE credits to other LMT's. I view the body as separate being from the mind and the mind a gateway to possibility. I love what I do and do what I love, which is to heal, soothe, calm and scratch the bubbles.
