Wellness Through a High Quality Therapeutic Massage, Clinical Bodywork And Corrective Movement

Welcome to Essential Bodywork and Massage Therapy. Our mission is to
provide high quality, client-centered experience through therapeutic massage,
clinical bodywork and movement. We believe that health is a way of life while
touch and movement is medicine.

At Essential Bodywork and Massage Therapy, we take an evidence-based,
functional approach to health and wellness. We combine knowledge of
functional anatomy with an understanding of the relationships between the
musculoskeletal system, posture, and breathing to create a full picture of
the human body. We pair that with a comprehensive collection of
assessments, treatment techniques and long-term maintenance solutions
to ensure you can achieve your wellness goals.

Our methods are truly holistic viewing the body as a system of systems, a fully
integrated unit where physical, hormonal, and emotional components must be
considered. This approach stems from the belief that the human body has an
innate healing ability which is mediated through the nervous system. If
the nervous system is working properly then the body can maintain a
state of wellbeing and will not need the intervention of pain treatments,
medications, or surgery. Essential Bodywork and Massage Therapy
retrains the body to relax and improve as a whole.

So come in and see what we can do for you!


Our Commitment is to improve the quality of life in individuals affected by discomfort and pain by addressing unresolved postural imbalances, movement deficits, pain and tension in the body.
