Essence is a community-oriented spa. We have participated and been involved in many events with CHEO and Local High Schools.

At Essence Spa your health and well being are in our best interest. Our massage therapist maintains a well rounded practice treating clients with various acute and chronic conditions. We believe that massage therapy is a very effective way to treat a number of physical ailments as well as promote health and well being.

As Registered Massage Therapists, we are always looking for the latest advances in massage therapy. Our foundation is based on Swedish Massage and Deep Tissue techniques which are the most popular styles of massage in the world. However we also offer NMT (Neuromuscular technique), Myofascial Release, Joint Mobilization, Trigger Point Therapy and Remedial Exercise.

Our treatment experience ranges from relaxation like swedish or hot stone treatments to help decrease stress and tension, to deep tissue therapeutic treatments. We practice a client-centered approach to massage therapy. Individual assessment and dialogue help us find the root cause of dysfunction and therefore help with long term resolution of pain. The goal for treatment is to provide personalized care to each client treating the cause of musculoskeletal problems, not just symptoms.

Personally we enjoy meeting new people and working one on one with our clients to determine which of techniques work best for them. We also believe that everyone can benefit from massage therapy, whether it is to decrease stress, or to prevent and treat injury.

The Registered Massage Therapists at Essence Spa strive to restore and strengthen the well being of our clients, easing pain and anxiety. We educate our clients about body awareness and prevention from injury guiding them to recovery through stretching and strengthening. A major part of the healing process is mainly determined between treatments.

We like to gear our treatments towards decreasing pain and adhesions that can be trapped in all the different layers of tissue in ones body.
