Friendly greeting as soon as you enter the front door. Almost immediate attention from the person handling your procedure, delicious tea, soothing music, and a wonderful relaxing manicure and pedicure. Color selection is large. The total experience will bring be back!

The property is nothing special, but I guess it depends on what you are looking for. We have experienced some amazing spas with decent massages, but Essential Therapies hires some talented ladies. We enjoyed our hot stone couples massage so much, we are talking about the drive there just to experience the healing touch of Loren and Elaine again. Thank... More

Today I went in after a long flight over the ocean! I received a very relaxing swedish massage for about 45 minutes. The reception was really friendly and the massage was very professional. I would recommend this to my friends.

We came to the Orlando area on business and I had found Essential Therapies on the internet. I had scheduled a 90 minute Couples Massage for myself and my husband as a way for him to relax after his conference. We could not have been happier with the caring manner of all of the staff. They were wonderful and very... More

Essential Therapies is a very special place for me. The building is actually a quaint and picturesque house, with a very large wooded yard encompassing many small gardens and a secluded hot tub area. I enjoy walking through the grounds before or after my services to see what's blooming or sitting outside for a few minutes in between services. From... More

Jess did a great job getting my fiances pedicure scheduled right after our hot tub time. I read on the tranquil back porch while Janet got her toes prettied up. Then we had a great couples massage. They really focused on our problem areas and we both felt great afterward, we slept well that night. Janet said I slept through... More

This was our first stop in Mount Dora and it kicked off (or more precisely kicked back) an anniversary weekend get away. The drive from home started the de-compression from the stress of every day life and the visit to Essential Therapies completed the process. Sangria in a hot tub at 10:30 in the morning followed by a long massage... More

My husband and I went to essentials for a couples massage on our anniversary. The staff was very friendly and professional. We loved the outside area with the jacuzzi. Very private and serene with lots of old beautiful trees. We had a morning appointment which was a great way to start our special day.
