At Essential Massage & Spa, we provide professional massage and facial services comparable to those you would receive at a high-end spa in a larger city, but with the hometown affordability (and personal care) that can truly make the difference between a good experience and a GREAT one. We are here to help you on your wellness journey.
All spa services are made by reservation and are secured with a valid credit card or gift certificate. All Spa services require an intake form and completed waiver prior to receiving treatments. A deposit of 50% may be required on select spa treatments and group bookings. (your payment information will be concealed in an encrypted format which means that your information is confidential and safe)
In order to ensure that you obtain your desired appointments, we recommend scheduling your appointment as far in advance as possible to ensure availability.
We value your time and that of our providers.
Plan to arrive at the Spa 15 minutes prior to your treatment time. New guests that have not filled out our electronic intake form prior to arrival, will need to fill it out onsite and should arrive 30 minutes prior to appointment time. Please give yourself ample time for check-in since wait times can vary, especially on the weekends. We understand that it can be difficult at times to arrive on time for appointments. Please call and let us know if you will be late. Checking-in or arriving late for your scheduled service will reduce the timeframe of your treatment. We will do our best to accommodate late arrivals. However, the length of service may be adjusted so as to not interrupt the scheduled appointments of other guests. Full price of scheduled services will apply, so please plan accordingly.
Upon your arrival, our friendly staff will welcome you, offer you a beverage and walk you to our relaxation area. Our Licensed Service Providers will begin your service with a consultation where we listen to you and come to understand your particular concerns. We'll review your information, including current conditions that might affect treatment or if there is a specific area or challenge upon which you'd like us to focus. During future visits, our Massage Therapist or Esthetician will ask about any changes, further tailoring your wellness journey here at Essential Massage & Spa.
Of course, beyond the check in policies we invite all our guests receiving services to make full use of our relaxing environment here at Essential Massage & Spa. Come early, stay late, bring a book, relax and enjoy a cup of complimentary tea, coffee, cocoa or hot cider available in our relaxation area. For the ultimate spa experience, book our one day spa pass and enjoy all our amenities while you visit.
At Essential Massage & Spa we ask that all our guests abide by the following Code of Conduct.

Our event room is available for groups of four or more, please reserve your private room at the time of reservation.
Communication During a Massage: It is fine to carry on a conversation with your therapist during a massage, although most guests find that silence enhances the tranquility. Please give your therapist some feedback about the amount of pressure or areas of your body that need special attention.
Cancellation Policies and Fees:
Life happens and sometimes you won't be able to keep a scheduled appointment. We understand.
All will agree, time is our most valuable asset. Essential requires that appointments be guaranteed against late cancellation or rescheduling with a major credit card.
Your spa treatments are reserved especially for you. We value your time and your business and ask that you respect the spa's scheduling policies. Should you need to cancel or reschedule, please notify us at least 2 hours in advance. Bookings of two or more services, including spa packages, couples massages and special events all need a minimum of 24 hours advance notice. This allows the spa enough time to fill appointments. Late cancellations will be charged 50% of services scheduled. “No-shows” will be charged 100% of services scheduled. The spa needs to pay its service providers even if a client is a “no-show”. This policy allows us to retain great employees.
When you schedule your appointment with us, you are agreeing to these policies. All services require a credit card or gift certificate to guarantee a reservation so please have your credit card and/or gift certificate ready when booking. Upon checkout, guests may choose their method of payment.
Thank you for understanding.
Prices and services are subject to change without notice. We will do our best to keep our clients up to date on any changes that may occur but encourage all clients to inquire about pricing and available services when booking your appointment.
