Essence Massage Therapy offers individual sessions that keep both the professionalism and relaxing atmosphere of a spa with the convenience and attention of an independent massage therapist. If you have ever wondered why you feel so good after a massage and then after a couple days the pain is back. The reasons may vary, however, it often comes back to our posture, how much we move and how we move, how we sleep, and what injuries and restrictions we may be working with. Essence also offers yoga, pilates, barre and more studio classes that can meet people at their level and work with them to overcome restrictions and pain patterns in their body. Massages are schedule Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.
