My best friend and I come here as often as we can. The services are wonderful and the best part of this facility is the relaxation room! Also during the Summer it is also nice to go outside and enjoy the gazebo. Great service and we always leave feeling fantastic!

I'll be honest, I typically visit 3-4 times per year for a massage, and I'm never disappointed. The Spa is well maintained and clean, and has a calming atmosphere ... from the locker rooms to the waiting area and the post-massage relaxation room. The therapists are great and very attentive. Well worth a visit, and reasonably priced too!

The Spa of Essex was open for New Year's Day and we enjoyed a couples massage to ring in 2016. Cait and Debra worked out knots, aches and the stress points that come from everyday living and gave us a glorious start to the new year. Can't think of a better way to resolve better health, more pampering and relaxation.

I had a group of 16 ladies come in for a Bachelorette spa day, and the spa couldn't be any more helpful! From the first day I called the spa to inquire to the day of the event, they were completely a pleasure to work with! They have a great indoor and outdoor space for groups that we took over,...

I love this spa! I have been to Canyon Ranch in Tucson a few times, and this spa beats their treatments! From the front desk to the treatment rooms, it is very calm and relaxing. Deanne is always so welcoming, knowledgeable and a wonderful person to have a facial with. She answers all questions I may have, in a way... More

My friend and I went to The Spa at Essex while our husbands went fishing. I had a wonderful massage with Rhea and my friend said she had a very relaxing facial. After our services we were escorted to the quiet room. We were seated in oversized comfy chairs and a large towel was placed over our legs which were... More

So, I always forget the answer to the trivia question about what the largest organ in your body is. And, of course, the answer is your skin. After a long cold winter with the moisture being sucked from my skin, I felt the need to pamper myself! Well, here comes the newest facial option to The Spa of Essex.I had... More

I came here expecting a relaxing, enjoyable experience. That did not happen. The front desk person and my esthetician were extremely unfriendly and rude. It was my first time here and I was unsure of what the services entailed. These two women were unreceptive and unaccommodating of my questions/requests, and acted as if they were doing me a huge favor.... More

My wife and I booked a couples massage at Spa of Essex. The facility is modern and clean, with a very friendly staff. The lounge where we waited for our masseuses included reclining chairs, which were very comfortable. They have new sauna and steam rooms, which I took advantage of. When we were led to the massage room, the atmosphere... More

I've been going to the spa since it opened eight years ago. The atmosphere is calming, the staff is welcoming, the treatments are wonderful. When you're finish your treatments, there is this great "relaxation room", where you can sink down in large cozy chaises and spend some unhurried "me" time.
