Esi House

Passionate about balancing structural integrity with Functional Nutrition for overall wellness.

I was involved in a car accident in 1993; this is over 20 years ago, and I suffer a whiplash injury to my neck.  This small collision created a big bang in my body. Without thinking of the whiplash as the cause of my neck and back pain, I was taking 1000 mg of Aleve and using Bengay cream daily to relieve the pain. I soon developed digestive complications and the neck pain worsened. This was when I decided to seek alternative treatment to manage the pain.

I was involved in a car accident in 1993; this is over 20 years ago, and I suffer a whiplash injury to my neck.  This small collision created a big bang in my body. Without thinking of the whiplash as the cause of my neck and back pain, I was taking 1000 mg of Aleve and using Bengay cream daily to relieve the pain. I soon developed digestive complications and the neck pain worsened. This was when I decided to seek alternative treatment to manage the pain.


As a result, I now work and run a practice that is based on using different bodywork modalities that have helped me relax and heal. Presently, my work is tailored to address the five connective tissues that cause/react to imbalance and these are the nerves, muscles, bones, fascia, ligament and tendons (and of course, the blood vessels through improving circulation). I combine different advance massage techniques such as myofascial release therapy, deep tissue, Swedish, myoskeletal alignment therapy, craniosacral therapy, orthopedic massage therapy, spinal release therapy - SRT, foot, hand and ear reflexology.  Combining these dynamic techniques helps me address my clients need within a few session.

With this knowledge, I can address conditions relating to lower back pain, shoulder pain, neck pain, digestive issue, lymphatic system congestion and stress due to sports injury and work-related stress.  To experience the dynamic diversity of our body, I provide medical massage to the variety of people and work places. I schedule work at Old Town Massage Center in Alexandria. Check these practice for my schedule.

Also, I help coordinate paying for massage using worker compensation or auto injury insurance. Give me a call if you are interested in functional nutrition too.

Esi is an angel and truly supports the healing process through all her many bodywork techniques. I came to her for prenatal massage and back and shoulder issues, but she has gone above and beyond in helping me with other issues. She is a master at her art of helping to heal pain and clear congestion in the body.

The best massage I’ve ever had! Esi knows her stuff and was able to target the right spots to help my sports injury. Her demeanor was very comforting and welcoming. I’ll certainly be back!

Esi went well beyond my expectations. She really understands the body and spent an extensive amount of time learning as much as she felt was necessary to be the most attentive to my needs. The massage itself also helped more than I expected. I happily recommend Esi of Health Essence Clinical Massage!

As always - I loved it. I wish I would go every month.

Esi is very nice and knowledgeable about the body. I feel that if you're going to get a general relaxation massage, she's amazing for that. Yet, I have sports injuries and needed some deep focused work. I've only encountered five 5* masseuses or masseurs throughout the country. So, a 3* review should be considered good, but it's not the best massage in the world.

Everything was fine.

She took time to review data from other visits. Reviewed/eyeballed my frame and stance to better determine muscle issues and pain origins. Experimented with my range of motion and flexibility and spoke of the various kinds of massage that might be helpful. And proposed a plan of action to help relieve my constant pain. The massage session was well executed. My body relaxed and refreshed. Next day soreness was minimal. Looking forward to next session.
