Expect a clean, quiet, peaceful and welcoming environment. Essential Massage is conveniently located in a Historic District of Poughkeepsie, NY, (less than 3 miles from Vassar College) in a beautiful 1859 Nationally Registered Historic Victorian tucked away from heavy traffic and street noise. If you're looking for a place to "see and be seen"- to catch up on the latest gossip or run into a client or student who you've worked with, then we're not the place to go. If you are looking for a private and relaxing place to receive a really great massage without chemical smells, high prices and social traffic, then look no further. You may have just found your perfect escape!
We won't give you monogrammed robe, or a chocolate facial - Our primary focus is on providing you excellent service, respect and a wonderful massage. We've chosen to limit our scope to what we know best... relaxation and therapeutic massage... and isn't that what quality is all about?
The massage therapist may play music during your session. If you respond well to a particular genre of music, just ask, and we'll do our best to accommodate you. Or you're welcome to bring your favorite music to play. Essential Massage will provide you with a soothing environment in which you can relax and receive all the benefits of therapeutic massage. Speak out about what works for you. It's your time to escape the noise and rush of everyday life to experience profound relaxation at Essential Massage.
Sometimes during the massage, clients will feel the need to talk about issues that surface, whether it's a long lost memory or a detail from earlier that day. Other times, silence occurs. In any case, Essential Massage provides respect and confidentiality. Professional conduct dictates that personal information you may share during your session is confidential. No matter what is happening in the world around us, your massage session will be a place and time of safety. Part of the reason why massage is so therapeutic to the spirit as well as the body, is that a certain trust develops which does not exist in the same form any place else. Your Essential Massage therapy session will become a place and time when you are free to just be yourself and "celebrate your essence".
