Relax or work out kinks
I came in and my back and legs felt like 2x4's, but by the time I left they were down to 1x4's, and another massage, and they no longer felt like wood. All of this was thanks to Janine, she's the best, and if I ever move, I am so taking her with me.

Janine is an amazing massage therapist! The facility was a little bit cluttered because they are going thru some renovations but I can just tell it's going to look great! The heated massage tables were great on a chilly day. The entire massage was amazing, the scalp massage was a special added bonus (one of my favorite things). The only thing I would change is a little less time on my feet only because they have been extra sensitve since my foot surgery. I will definitely be returning!!

Janine is an amazing Massage Therapist. I found her through a recommendation of a friend when I was 7 1/2 months pregnant and extremely miserable. She was not afraid to massage my ribs where the baby was stuck and causing severe muscle spasms. Her massage was the only relief that I was able to find from this pain. I continue to see Janine on a regular basis for chronic pain relief from low back problems. Essence was remodeling a beautiful new studio/spa. It is now open and BEAUTIFUL!!! Janine is extremely trustworthy and a good person. The review stating she was not....clearly never gave her a chance.

I have been going to Janine for over a year. I have terrible sciatica and have seen numerous massage therapists, chiropractors, etc. Janine, by far, has been the best massage therapist I have ever had. I would go see her for treatment anywhere. That being said, the new spa is open and it was well worth the wait. It looks beautiful inside and Janine's massage skills are just as amazing in the new place.

Range of motion in my neck has returned!
I went to see Janine to address neck pain from a cervial sprain. My pain level significantly decreased after my session. She knew the right amount of pressure to use during the massage. Janine is compassionate and concerned about my overall health. Suggesting I drink water, use hot/cold packs, stretches and rest. I've been to many therapists in RI and MA, I will not see another massage therapist again. Janine is my Massage Therapist, I recommend her to everyone!

I have been getting regular massages from Janine for several years. She is wonderful and really in tune with the needs of her clients. The new spa looks beautiful and I can't wait until it is fully open so I can take full advantage of all it has to offer.

Janine is the best massage person I have ever been to and believe me, I have tried many. She really knows what she is doing. My daughter has an illness and Janine has helped her a great deal. She is compassionate and clearly knows the human body and how to treat it. My daughter is doing so much better thanks to her. Yes, her salon took awhile to open but it will be worth it. Give her a try, you will not be disappointed. She is truly a wonderful person.

We got a gift certificate a year ago and the place wasn't and still isn't in working order. They haven't gotten their final inspection as of today 12/8/12. Finally got our money back by telling Janine we are reporting her to the Better Business Bureau! Janine is a very fake person!!!

I booked my massage here online and received email confirmation. When I arrived for my appointment, the shop was locked, there was a building permit on the door and they appeared to be under construction. I called the number a few times and it rang for minutes before transferring me to a cell phone whose mailbox was full. So sketchy. Not sure if they are in even in business but if so, they certainly do not run it well! I warn against booking here online.

I visited Essence Massage Studio on a whim. I was 8 months pregnant and in extreme pain from sciatica. Janine was wonderful. She took the time to listen to my complaints to pin point where I would need the most work! She has hands of magic! I have never felt better after a treatment. I have been to specialists and chiropractors and they didn't do the trick. Janine was extremely sweet and professional. Her studio is beautiful and relaxing! I even booked a couples massage for my husband and I as a treat, that was amazing! He ususlly doesn't like to get a massage either and said he would go back as well. I have found my new hot spot to go! Thank you Janine for everything! You will be seeing me again and again! ~April

after reading these reviews I was really expecting an amazing experience I was very disappointed. The owner did my massage I think she is the only one there except for couples . Her massage was ok I just expected this transcending experience, I checked out their website & it seemed like this was going to be someone with this great energy to take me to another level....not at all. I didn't like her energy at all she seemed kind of pushy for me to extend my massage for longer & to book other services. I re-read these reviews before posting this & I think 1 is from her, she kept saying everything was yummy. I just wanted to relax not listen to a sales pitch. like I said the massage was ok, I've certainly had a lot better. One thing I that really creeped me out is that her hands were clammy & that's just 1 thing I can not stand is someone touching me with clammy hands! Oh ya & the business next door had loud music playing...sooo NOT relaxing!! I won't be returning.

My first massage here was absolutely the best massage I've ever had! Janine takes the time to figure out where you need work done and she really gives it her all. After that first visit, I was hooked! I now visit regularly to have a great experience and make my body feel wonderful. I'm so glad she is also offering pedicures! I had mine this weekend and it was also a wonderful experience.

The Best Pedicure
The best pedicure I've ever had was at Essence Massage Studio. Gloria was very professional. She made me feel very relaxed. After appying the mask she wrapped my feet with moist warm towels, soooooo relaxing. Especially while I was sipping my Herbal Tea. The final outcome was I ended up with Beautiful Feet. Thank you
