The staff at Essence Massage & Spa channels its collective training and expertise to raise spirits, minimize stress, and give appearances a full revival. To that end, registered massage practitioners dole out relaxation and deep-tissue massages. Aestheticians combat skin problems with deep-cleansing and anti-aging facials, microdermabrasion treatments, and full-body scrubs. The spa also offers infrared-sauna sessions for detoxification and calorie burning, as well as teeth whitening, manicures, and permanent makeup.
