Why Rita?

Her almost 40 years of western and eastern healthcare experience along with her numerous traumatic life challenges, not only gives her a very unique skillset, but the depth to understand life can be a struggle.

She has lived it and “gets it”. She wants to help YOU to find a way to get to back to feeling and acting like YOU.

During her 17 years as a licensed Massage Therapist, she discoverd the power of aromatherapy, and essential oils. She continues to make her own self-care products using aromatherapy and loves sharing her love and her knowledge. Besides... it is SO MUCH FUN using the "Pamper Me!" products after you've made them. Self-care at it's FINEST!

Her book, Simple Self-Care Saved Me!, details her journey and how she was able to move forward onto a healthier path AND outlines 3 simple steps to get you on YOUR journey from feeling CRAPPY to HAPPY.

Rita is authentic, real, and often tells it like it is - in no uncertain terms. Through sarcasm, humor, and being her "science-nerd-self", she helps you connect the dots between why you feel so CRAPPY and helps you move closer to HAPPY with a multitude of suggestions and options to pick what works best for YOU.

Her passion is teaching workshops, lunch and learns, along with sharing her point of view and simple stress-busting solutions with small and large audiences.

What are you waiting for?... let's get you started on YOUR journey to go from feeling CRAPPY to HAPPY?


The Pamper Me! Aromatherapy event was a hands-on learning experience - it was engaging, fun, and educational.  I learned how to make my own scrubs with essential oils, and I have since made a couple of my own at home.  The emphasis throughout the workshop was on self-care and the importance of taking time for ourselves as women.  I loved that we got to interact with each other while we were learning.  I also loved the provided handouts so that we could take notes to refer back to at home.  It was an awesome experience, and I would love to participate in another similar workshop in the future!

Rita broadened my awareness of ways I already do self-care, and helped me to recognize the importance of those.  She also encouraged me to find new ways to reduce stress and take care of my mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual health each day.  Her genuinely compassionate and down-to-earth approach is refreshing!

Rita has helped me to realize that self-care is not complicated but is quite simple, in all of the small, run-of-the-mill ways we pay attention to our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being.  Her workshops are refreshing and life-giving!

Rita Garnto is an excellent event coordinator, ensuring our organization’s needs were met for a requested presentation . She delivered a 30-minute self-care and stress management focused presentation at our staff meeting, providing tools and practical advice, exercises and hand-outs. Rita is very relatable, authentic and a great listener. Her message was right on point and she adapted to fit within our allotted timeframe perfectly. Employees even had the option of signing up for a self-care reminder text. Here’s the feedback I received from one of our team members “ in our hustle of everyday life, we somehow overlook self-care. . .It’s nice to be reminded. I also got my first text this morning from Rita. This is going to be great!”

Rita spoke at our women’s self-care event with an audience of about 100 attorneys who work in high stress positions for corporations all over the world. The women were deeply inspired by Rita’s personal testimonials, experiences and advice on how to balance and improve life using personal self-care. It was a great way to kick off the half-day event, and everyone was appreciative of her book in order to refer back to the suggestions and techniques on an ongoing basis. We hope to use Rita again for other events.
