Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Loved it! Thanks for a great experience!!

    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!

  • Great experience! Will go back to her for my next massage!

    Emily is highly skilled— I have been sore artist kthe rmSsages but not hers- she ensures my Comfort and works out my kinks so I am better able to function????

  • My massage was amazing. Emily was spot on with pains and stiffness. I felt alot better after my session. I highly recommend Emily, Essential Massage Therapy.

    The whole experience was great

  • 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.

    Very professional and helpful, and knowledgeable as well.
