Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Wonderful massage!!

    She's a magician!

  • Lori is exceptional! I highly recommend her. She is incredibly knowledgeable and professional. She went above and beyond to address my many issues. Absolutely phenomenal. I will definitely continue to book massages with her. Amazing!

    Lori's massage helped relieve the tightness in my neck and upper back!

  • This was the best massage I have ever had.

    Lori runs a beautiful massage clinic and is frankly the best therapist I have ever had! She is strong and knows how to move the fascia to help with pain and tension. She is easy to tell what’s bugging you and will actually take care of it. I feel like I’m on a cloud after my 90 min massage! Ferguson is a great addition to the atmosphere too! Can’t wait for my next massage!

  • Great massage with amazing skills to unknot those muscles.

    Relaxing office and Lori really helps get whatever stress points need to be worked on your body. Have gone back for second appt since using Groupon

  • Lori is amazing. She has helped me immensely! I was experiencing a pinched nerve and was diagnosed with tennis elbow, and and compressed disk in my neck. I have had chronic pain for years, she has been able to relieve me of mostly all of my pain and I have far more range of motion in my neck, shoulder, and left arm. Awesome Lady!!

    Lori was able to find the problems areas in my back and work through them. Left feeling much better. The ambiance is very relaxing too.

As a Chiropractor I would (and I have!) recommend Lori to my patients and friends. She is kind and compassionate yet professional and skillful and would be a great benefit to those looking for exceptional therapeutic body work!

She took care of my injuries better than anyone’s else has in the past. Leaving I had the best range of motion with little pain in my neck then I ever had prior to my injury. I would highly recommend Lori to anyone.

Lori was able to find all the places that were stuck or impinged and helped to relieve them. I’ve had 1000 massages in my life and this was one of the best therapeutic massages I’ve ever had. I live in San Jose but drive over the hill for Lori’s expertise.

Lori is ahhhmazing. I came to her in a lot of pain. Her magic hands found my sore spots and worked them out with the perfect balance of pressure, relaxing strokes and her soothing energy. From just first session Im feeling tremendous pain relief and plan to see her regularly.

Lori was absolutely amazing. From the booking, I called in, to the end of massage. She is so sweet and knows exactly what she is doing. I was having shoulder and neck pain but after my massage I felt completely rejuvenated. If I lived in Capitol a or closer area I would have regular appointments with her. Next time I am in town I will be booking with her for sure.

Lori did an amazing job of covering my entire body, not rushing on any particular area, in the hour and half session. I was so relaxed the rest of the day. Will be back for sure!

Lori was fantastic!! I have had many massages in my day and she is hands down, one of the best. She was able to find where my muscles were very tight and relieve a lot of pain and stress. I felt so light and relaxed after. I highly recommend Lori from Essential Massage!
