Testimonials From Our Happy Clients:

— Elaine Manno

I have been a client at Essence Skin and Body since I moved to Martinez in 1998. I started regularly seeing the ladies for waxing. Massages were always a special treat. I have also had fabulous facials and make up application for my wedding. I have never been disappointed at Essence and I have had the pleasure of seeing most, if not all, of their fabulous estheticians and massage therapists.

As a person who suffers from arthritis, I have found great relief from monthly massage therapy. About three years ago, I started having extreme sciatic pain. I had also been suffering from neck and shoulder issues for several years which were connected to the arthritis. The thought of massage as a therapy for my arthritis hadn’t been on my radar but out of desperation I started seeing Jan weekly, bi-weekly, and finally settled at every 4 weeks. The increase in motion, lack of pain and discomfort, and overall feeling better made me a believer in massage therapy, not as just a treat but as a necessity in my life. Massage is my medicine for my arthritis. Jan is a miracle worker and now I have a prescription to see her every 4 weeks!

Ever since I was thirteen I've had acne. No matter what age I was it was something that gave me anxiety. I explored almost every option available to me; Murad, Proactive, and prescribed antibiotics. Pretty much everything but Accutane. I felt like I had run out of possibilities.

It wasn't until my sister bought me a gift card to Essence that I found my solution. My sister had been going there to receive treatment for scarring and pigment issues, and thought they could help me with my active acne and scarring issues. Since then I've been working with Luciana and Jan for just a little over a year now and my face has never looked better. Jan now has me on a routine of rotating facials and peels along with a series of face products from the Cosmedix© line. We've been able to reduce my acne and scarring substantially! I've reached a level of confidence I've never felt before and I have the team at Essence to thank for that!

I have been a client of Essence Skin and Body Care for close to ten years. I have enjoyed the variety of services offered including therapeutic massage which really helps with my back problem, wonderful body wraps, regular facials with Revitalight treatments and permanent make-up - notice the eyebrows! I am 62 and it often takes me by surprise when a new acquaintance thinks I am younger. My objective has never been to look younger, but to look and feel the best I can for my age. I exclusively use and enjoy the Dermalogica Skin Care products and can highly recommend the entire AGE Smart line. I just started using the new Multivitamin Power Serum. These products are easy to use, affordable and give great results! My mom is also a regular client at Essence and loves the treatments and the Dermalogica products. We LOVE getting gift certificates for each other! Jan and the staff at Essence provide affordable professional services in a comfortable, friendly and inviting environment. I look forward to enjoying the "Essence" experience for many years to come!

I'm Yolanda Lemmings and I have had severe acne on my face and body for most of my life. I have seen dermatologists off and on for many years with varied results. I came to Essence in March of 2010 and started a skin care regime with Jan. I have now been receiving facials and back treatments on a regular basis. The results have been amazing! I can see a huge improvement in the health of my skin and no longer have trouble with severe breakouts. I have been using the CosMedix product line from the beginning and it really corrected my condition. We have been doing regular facials and chemical peels on my face and back to improve the acne scarring.
Oh, did I mention the results were amazing!
Last year I suffered from a terrible pinched nerve in my neck that completely incapacitated me to the point of missing work. I came to Jan for therapeutic massage treatments and she was really able to help resolve the issue.

I have also truly enjoyed the M'Lis Body Wraps which are used for permanent inch loss and detoxification.

My overall experience with Jan and Essence Skin ad Body Care has been nothing short of excellent. I whole heartedly recommend Essence to anyone searching for a total body healing experience!

I absolutely love this place! I have been a happy client since 2007. I've had treatments from everyone and enjoy their professionalism and friendliness. I have been working with Jan (the owner) for a long time and I have to say my skin has come a long way. I am so happy with the results and I love how I don't need to wear make-up. I continued to see her throughout my pregnancy and she does wonderful prenatal massage! The rest of the staff is awesome as well and I love the availability when booking an appointment. The front office gals are friendly, knowledgeable and always call with a reminder.
-- This day spa is like no other!--
They are unique and work together as a team to make your time more enjoyable. I always come out in a good mood and a smile on my face. I highly recommend Essence and I love their skin care products.
