Essential Therapy is THE place to go. Yes they have all the credentials like one of those big franchised massage therapy spas but more importantly they can do what they say. I tried two other massage therapy spas in Charlotte with no luck. I've been going to Essential Therapy for almost 2 years now and have enjoyed being able to work virtually pain free. I have a physically demanding job that has me lifting and maneuvering things from 50lb to 150lb all day. I used to simply work in pain, now I don't thanks to the incredible team at Essential Therapy!
