Recognized and Trusted – 2015 Excellence in Business Award Recipient!

In 2015, we were recognized by the MetroNorth Chamber of Commerce as the Best Micro Business in the North Metro Area. Having been nominated was an honor in and of itself, but to win? Wow! We did not know how big of a deal it was.

Essentially Massage is the number one massage clinic in the Northern Metro to provide Orthopedic Massage services. Many of our clients are coming to us from their Physician, Physical Therapists, Chiropractors, Yoga Studio, and Personal Trainers. Our services are utilized by these professionals because of our therapists knowledge and ability to help clients improve their physical health. We are happy to work with medical professionals to help improve client care.

Meet the Staff

Essentially Massage Therapists

At Essentially Massage, each therapist has had advanced training in massage techniques to help with chronic pain conditions and/or sports injuries. Our focus is on having qualified caring therapists that have made Massage Therapy their career. With an expanded skill set we are able to help meet the needs of those suffering from soft tissue injury, sports injuries, and auto accidents. Our therapists have also been trained in working Prenatal Massage, Chronic Pain Conditions, and joint replacements.

Why do we not have more therapists on staff? We expect excellence from our practitioners. The ability to advance, learn, and self motivate along with the compassion it takes to help those in pain, is vitally important to Essentially Massage.
