Meet the Founder


On May 1, 2018 Leandra Hernandez launched Crème de la Crème Vegan Wellness in Cibolo, Texas. The mission is to offer high quality therapeutic, chemical free, affordable services that can be available to everyone.

During her childhood, Leandra’s Polynesian and Hispanic roots introduced the concepts of sustainability and incorporating fitness into her daily regimen. However, there is so much more to incorporate to gain complete vitality.

There is always a personal event that strikes the “why” and forever inspires the purpose behind the business. That event occurred when she was nine years old and taken to a children’s hospital via medevac due to the discovery of life-threatening tumors. Leandra was hospitalized for 15 months and was told by numerous medical professionals she would require therapy and medication permanently.

Leandra defied the odds and changed her fate from what doctors predicted after a rigorous rehabilitation cleanse. That transformative milestone became her “why” and

fueled every goal moving forward. She aligned the internal and external; a perfect diet is powerless without a focus on self-care and wellness.

Realizing the importance of a sustainable and healthy lifestyle, Leandra decided to make a positive impact with a holistic approach. During her professional journey, Leandra became a Physical Therapist (PT) of 12+ years, Massage Therapist (MT) of 11+ years, Massage Therapy Instructor (MTI) of 10+ years, MTI CEU Provider and Massage Therapy Establishment Provider. She managed, operated and launched successful spa locations and eventually that inspired the creation of

the nation’s first vegan wellness spa franchise.

As a licensed professional, Leandra discovered the lack of growth opportunities within the wellness industry. This inspired the CDLC Luxe Suites entrepreneur program. Designed to help licensed professionals build their own clientele and become their own boss.

CDLC Massage Academy will be the latest addition to Leandra’s franchise model; which offers a reimagined education opportunity to become a LMT in one of the fastest growing industries. The current market does not meet the new generation of academy standards. Leandra knew she could approach the education environment differently and truly inspire the future therapists of America. Discover the difference through the CDLC Academy Standard.
