Karen has what only the best therapists have. She sees with her hands. Finds the right spots and works them while getting just enough pressure on a deep tissue massage. Excellent!

Karen has such a caring and compassionate spirit. She does amazing body work and works the real troublesome areas with gentle skill and ability. She is extremely knowledgable on the body and how it all works together as a beautiful machine. I would highly recommend Karen to anyone I know.

by Lisa on Apr 06
Steve is a very professional, experienced, caring massage therapist!!! Works wonders to help you feel relaxed, at ease and cared for. Took special care of the “problem” areas I came in with, to leave me feeling amazing after my massage!!!
by Anonymous on Jan 12
I was hesitant at first about trying a new therapist but glad I did. Steve was very professional and is a gifted therapist. My feet and whole body felt lighter after session. Energy blocks were freed and a few tears were shed during the session. I felt awkward at first but Steve assured me that tears were safe in his treatment room. I will be getting regular reflexology work with him.

Really appreciate Keith's professionalism and pace through the many areas of disarray my body arrived in. So thankful he took the time to tend to these instead of rushing for a full body this time. Very tuned in and checked with me for feedback frequently. I think for the rate (similar to resorts I've been to), the room/plinth should be warm enough to not feel need for shiver initially.

While in Grants Pass for a few days, I injured my shoulder lifting something heavy. (Rotator cuff injury I was also suffering from Sciatic nerve pain. A family member suggested a massage at essential wellness. Karen Suggs did an amazing massage, and relieved the pain in both areas. The pain is still gone 6 days later at time of writing this. It's not often I can drift off to sleep during a massage, but this one time, it happened. I've had hundreds of massages during my travels, but this treatment by Karen tops them all. Thank you essential Wellness ! Ron Metcalfe, Vancouver , Canada

I have never been to a massage therapist before. My experience with my first massage I received has been the best experience ever. I find the office to be very professional and friendly. It's the best thing I've ever done for myself. I have continued my therapy because I find it very rewarding. These days with all the stress of life, we really need to do something for ourselves. We need to learn how to relax. This is my preventive medicine!
