Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Looking forward to making this a habit. Emily is just superb!!

    Emily does such a great job. It's not just a generic massage that you get at a chain, but she really focuses on making you better. Her approach feels very scientific and based upon anatomy--she really knows about the body and the hows and whys of feeling better. I can't recommend her more!

  • Emily made me feel comfortable and was willing to work with my pain threshold throughout the massage. I will definitely be seeing her again!

    I really like how she works on trigger points.

  • So relaxing! Was a much needed massage as the summer comes to a close. Will continue to be a repeat customer. Best massage therapist around. ????

    Love her!

  • It was an excellent experience, Emily is great! I will definitely be a repeat customer.

    I have been going to Emily White for some time now. I have been to many massage therapists and I have to say she is THE BEST!! She really listens and takes the time to meet your needs and make you comfortable. She really has helped me tremendously with alot of my problem areas. She is kind, professional and very skilled at massage. Her studio is lovely and so relaxing. I HIGHLY recommend her if you are interested in just a relaxing massage or working out the kinks!!! Love her!

  • good products, very professional, and well priced

    Very professional! I was injured several years ago and still suffer from those injuries. Emily is helping me work toward days without pain. I have seen many massage therapist over the last 7 years and Emily is top notch! I would recommend her to anyone whether you are seeking relaxation, getting rid of a migraine, pain relief, or overall health. The deep blue and CBD oil are a plus too!!

Emily does a great job of listening to my needs and focusing on those areas with precision. I’ve had 2 massages so far from Emily and have every intention of making it a regular occurrence. I’m a Crossfitter and always have tight and/or sore muscles. My massages have focused exclusively on my legs, and it’s been fantastic. Highly recommend!

This was my first time at Essential Massage Therapy, though I purchased a gift certificate for my husband last year. I have to say it was one of the best massages I've ever had. I will be returning regularly!

Service Received: Three 60/min sessions with Emily W.
This was my second massage and it was even more amazing than the first. Emily had perfect pressure throughout the massage and found knots that I wasn’t even aware that I had. I’m hoping that if I keep working with her over the next month and a half, I’ll have most of my kinks worked out and feel much better than I ever have. I suffer from horrible migraines and since I’ve been going to Emily when I start getting a migraine, I haven’t had to take my migraine medicine. A massage is much more relaxing than any medicine and much better for your body. I still highly recommend you come see Emily if you have any aches and pains that ail you. Ayou wont regret it. :) I’m about to book the 90-minute package while the special is still going on so I can have that package on hand as well. I already have a 60-minute package on hand and I’m so happy that I do. It’s already paid for and ready at a moment’s notice should I need a massage. It’s so easy to do. You should choose that option too!

Emily was very professional, and the setting was quiet and relaxing. She confirmed with me which areas needed to be addressed and focused attentively on them. I've had neck, shoulder, and lower back issues for years -- however, after just the first session, things feel terrific... even 24-hrs later.
