I have visited other spas in the area and this was by far my best experience. The online scheduling was so convenient, and the service I received was better than I expected. Not only was my massage amazing, but the customer loyalty pricing was so affordable that I'm returning every two weeks. I will recommend Essential Touch to everyone I know!

This place is awesome!  I am a real customer.  Found a groupon and was looking for a massage therapist in Lake Orion.  Melody did my massage.  She was very professional and gave me a very good massage.  I can't wait for next time.

Love my massages with Melody at Essential Touch! 

Just love, love, love my massages with Melody!  So relaxing and peaceful. 

Jessica helped me relieve my tension and stress in my upper back and shoulders today. I felt much better after the mental detox. It was just what I needed again at the right time.

Jessica did a Great job One of he best massages I've had.

It was fabulous!

It is always a great experience with Melody - the excellent level of service you receive is much anticipated and appreciated!

It has been six hours since my massage with Melody.  I am feeling good and my arm and shoulder are feeling better than before the massage.  I'm looking forward to a better night's sleep and will schedule my next visit soon. -Thank you!

I received a great massage from Amy! I especially appreciated the scalp massage at the beginning and end of the session, not everyone does that and its my favorite!! I would highly recommend her to friends.

I had a great massage with Melody! Can't wait for my next one!!

i feel wondeful, looking forward to maintaining massages/reiki to be healthier

I enjoyed the massage everywhere. I felt that the masseuse was able to find the problem areas in my body quite well.

Great massage. Great experience. Great advice. Thanks!

Great experience. I loved the relaxed atmosphere and personality of the staff.

Feel so much better now!!!

Very nice place and great service 

Great experience. 10 out of 10 points. Going back

It was a great experience and I really enjoyed the massage. I'm ruined now though - because I will never be able to go back to a 60 minute
massage. It was fantastic.

I just feel relaxed and refreshed after my massage with Melody.
Thank you. I'll be back!!

very classy place

Great massages,Melody. David was very comfortable with you and enjoyed the conversation...I enjoyed the extra stretches and quiet time.

The massage was wondeful and look forward to coming back in the future.
Great massage. I will be back.

It was the first time during a massage I had ever had heat added to my back and I enjoyed that very much.

Great, relaxing massage. Will recommend to family and friends!

Amazing : )

One of the very best massages that I've had!
Enjoyed my massage and plan on a return visit.

Melody was very pleasant to visit with while massaging.

I have had massages at several locations. Melody, the masseuse, had a firm but gentle strength. She was not aggressive.
The massage was great! The atmosphere was relaxing. Overall, a great place!

Thank you for a wonderful massage Melody - it was just great!
Best massage I have had in awhile.
More ease in scheduling appts. would be good. Sometimes hard to get hold of staff.
Really enjoyed, thanks so much!

I was so relaxed, I was fighting to stay awake :0)


Great job!

Melody made me feel very relaxed and comfortable. Would recommend her to everyone

Very nice, comfortable and great massage
excellent massage

The location is easy to get to, clean, friendly and they do a wonderful
massage, exactly what you want. Would definitely go back and refer friends.

This was a wonderful massage. I do get massages often and the massage from Essential Touch ranks at the top. Highly recommended.
it was a little challenging to set up the first appointment, but well worth it once it was done. I do plan to return.
Very relaxing facility!

Great Massage!! Very happy!!

Fantastic Service.

Brian W - Vital Part of a Flourishing Life
Massage is typically ignored or avoided by men, but needs to
be a regular practice for us all. Many masseuses (sp?) lack the strength to perform deeper tissue work on men--or overcompensate by being too forceful. But Melody B. has the strength to go along with the sensitivity, the essential touch, and a wonderfully positive demeanor. Simply the best.

Rachel D - Relaxing and Well Done!
I asked for firm massage to work out a knot in my shoulder
and Melody did what I asked for! Although my knot has been super stubborn, I will have to go back for more help. I will also return to do the entire hour instead of repairing damage. :)

Cindy S - Absolutely wonderful!! 
I have been going to Melody regularly for years and wouldn't
go to anyone else. She is a wonderful lady and very professional, not to
mention the best massage therapists I have ever been to. The ambiance is very soothing and relaxing. I always look forward to the whole experience.

Kelsea S - Pure Excellence!
Melody was wonderful! I told her what was wrong in my back
and with her experience she knew just what to focus on. And being my first massage, she knew exactly how to treat me. I definitely will be returning to her soon! :) My back feels great!

M.S. - The BEST!!! 
I have lived in Lake Orion for 6 years and have been getting
massages for almost 10. I have been to other therapists locally and at vacation spots around the country and now that I have been to Essential Touch, I have no interest in going any where else. What a great atmosphere!

Kittrell S - Wonderfulll!
What more can I say? Plenty! Melody is fantastic. She's very
pleasant, personable, and can automatically zero in on those areas of the most tension. By the time she's finished, you walk away feeling like a million bucks! Like I said...wonderfull!

Julie K - Accomodating
Melody and Ashley are wonderful! They both fit me in when my
schedule is tight. The remodeled Lake Orion location is beautiful and
welcoming. Great people, wonderful massages.

Dawn C - Melody is AWESOME!!
I have been seeing Melody for several months. She does a
great job, working exactly the parts that need it most. Prices are very
competitive, the atmosphere is very relaxing and everything is clean. Have given a few gift certificates to friends and they have raved about her as well. Highly recommend ET.

Hillary - Essential Touch is wonderful!
I highly recommend Essential Touch. Its a cute, cozy and
relaxing salon with GREAT service and prices. Melody is great too! It's a
must...go check it out!

LOMom - Relaxing
Great facility to kick back and let your troubles slip away.
Received a wonderful session tailored to my needs at a great rate. Highly
recommend ET to all!

Deb S - complete relaxation
She paid special attention to my shoulders and neck and released my muscles. I fell asleep during my massage. Complete relaxation.

K.P. - Loved it!
I've known Melody for years, and it's great to see her in
her own beautiful place! Whenever I start feeling really stressed or I start to have a problem with my back I call Essential Touch. It's more than a massage, it's like coming home.

Carol Ebner - Very relaxing 
I thoroughly enjoyed the massage. I felt much more relaxed and at peace following. I know I'll be back for more in the future. Thanks again!

Melody Turczyn - What a Terrific Massage! 
My wonderful children and their significant others gave me a
gift certificate to Essential Touch for Mother's Day - and it was a real
delight! Melody was so skilled and professional, I made an appointment right away for more services next week. Would recommend this to anyone who wants to feel completely relaxed and pampered.

Noelle Powel - Wonderful Services!!! 
Essential Touch as the knack of helping your body feel
healed and relaxed. My pinched nerve and carpal tunnel are less painful. My hands feel so much better. Thank you Essential Touch, I will definately be back for more services. : )

Jenna Walker - wonderful experience 
My experience at Essential Touch was a very positive one.
The environment is extremely calming and welcoming, the music played creates a calming atmosphere and they all set the stage for a wonderful, relaxing massage done by an obviously well trained and friendly massage therapist. Now that I have been to Essential Touch,no other massage place measures up to their standards in my opinion.

Dan B. - Best Ever 
Melody is hands down the best hands I have ever experienced.
She can instantly feel the areas that have knots and need relief and work them out, while at the same time perfrom refreshing massage techniques that make you fel both healed from aches and pains and also pampered and refreshed like a good nights sleep

Ginny - Awesome!! 
Melody is awesome! I feel so refreshed and stress free after a massage with Melody. I even sleep better after a massage. The aches and pains just disappear. I would highly recommend Melody at Essential Touch!

Dan - Best EVER 
I have back and neck problems from a long ago serious accident and I found that Melody can immediately hit the muscles and joints that are causing me the most immediate stress and once relieved I find I feel better overall. She has the best combination of firm, kneeding hands and yet somehow also a gentle touch. I highly highly reccommend her.

Cindy - Essential Touch is wonderful! 
I have been going to Essential Touch for years and would go no where else. Melody gives the best massages. She is a delightful woman and
very professional. I would highly recommend her and her place of business.

KH - Best Massage Ever 
Good ambience, excellent massage. Very professional and the
establishment is very well maintained and very peaceful. I would highly
recommend Essential Touch!!!

Bill - Great Massage! 
Had one of the best messages ever and I have gotten messages
from around the world. Combination of this and cost makes for a very high recommendation. On-line scheduling makes it a breeze, facility is well maintained!


K - Why did I wait so long? 
Ease in scheduling began a wonderful experience with
Essential Touch. Relaxing environment and experienced techniques allowed me to melt on the table.

Ton - Awesome! 
A very professional and relaxed treatment. After the treatment you walk out of the door like a new person. Highly recommended to anybody. Great job Melody!

Patricia - Take a break for yourself! 
I went on my lunch break. What a difference a massage in the
middle of the day can make. Melody is very professional. She put me at ease and made the whole experience relaxing. She has a soothing touch. The online scheduler was very quick and easy for me too.

G. B. - Reward Yourself! 
What a wonderful treat after a hard days work! I feel so refreshed after a massage with Melody. I usually call, but for this appointment
I used the on-line process. It was quick and easy.

Debbie - Very Relaxing! 
Melody has fingers with magic in them! She is very pleasant
and professional. I, too, appreciated the on-line appointment process. I hope to return in the future.

Rena - Great Massages 
Melody is awesome. It was one of the most relaxing massages
I'm had and I've been getting massages for 10 years. I highly recomment setting up an appointment. The on-line appointment process is great what a nice feature to have

Sherri - A real value. The best in the area!! 
Melody is very good. She always asks if there are any problem areas and works those into the massage. Professional and totally relaxing! This was not my first visit and I will return.

Massage Fan - Give it a try, You'll be glad you did 
Pleasant, relaxing, professional environment. She gives a very good
massage (and I have had many massages elsewhere.) She didn't massage the problem area I came for, but made the rest of me feel so wonderful that I didn't care. And the special price made it even better!

Carol Dooley - Magic Hands! I Feel 10 Years Younger!!
An active 51-year old who enjoys sports and working
outdoors, I recently had a Deep Tissue Massage at Essential Touch. It was excellent, customized to my particular problem areas and feedback. Better than cruise ships, local spas, high-end hotel parlors and others in Europe, Asia & the Caribbean that I've experienced. I'll be back - soon!

LOMom - Relaxing 
I've experienced several massages at Essential Touch and
each one is better than the last. I enjoy a massage the first thing in the
morning to last throughout the day. Look for the specials that really help in these tough times.

Lauren Kruszewski - GREAT GREAT GREAT 
This was one of the BEST massage I've gotten. I've been all
over, FL, Vegas, CA, and Italy and never gotten a massage like I did yesterday. Can't wait to go back again!
