Client testimonial

"Probably the most serious and educated therapists in San Miguel"

Essential is unique among massage companies in San Miguel because of their training and dedication to their profession. Unlike many therapists, who always give the same massage, Essential can offer different experiences, from sports therapy for sore muscles to deep stretching to a more meditative, emotionally therapeutic massage involving a singing bowl whose sound and physical vibrations to unify the senses. Watsu is another of their specialties, and it is a deeply soothing experience.  They are true, caring, healing professionals in bodywork; Essential is always one of my first appointments when I visit San Miguel. Most highly recommended.     -Heather C.

"You deserve Essential Massage and Watsu"

I have been a client of Essential Massage and Watsu for several years and working with them has become a regular and most satisfying part of my personal maintenance routine. Whether it is a 2-hour massage (an hour goes way too fast for me) or a Watsu session, you will feel the immediate benefits. Essential practices a variety of methods and is sensitive to your immediate needs. Watsu is an amazingly relaxing experience that almost defies description. Everyone should gift themselves the opportunity to be swept through the body-temperature water and lulled by its warmth into a state of complete relaxation while stretched and supported in a completely stress-reducing series of movements. Residents of San Miguel should be regular clients. Visitors should make a visit to Essential for a memorable part of their time in San Miguel.    -Brian C.

"Fantastic Watsu!"

A Watsu massage with David is an exceptional experience. David is highly skilled, making you feel secure in the different environment of the water. He does a great job listening to your requests and making you feel comfortable. I would eagerly do another of his massages on my next visit to San Miguel.       -Susan H.
