The salon was lovely and the beautician was very friendly. There was a limited choice of colours which was slightly disappointing but managed to choose one that was nice. The manicure process was good and my nails looked really nice. I have had the polish on now just over a week and 2 nails have chipped - I was hoping it would last 2 weeks as stated and followed the instructions for this! Over all good experience, but may go elsewhere for a gel manicure.

I had a hot stone massage today, Laura was really knowledgable and talked through where I needed my massage before she started. The treatment was really relaxing and I felt really good afterwards. I would definately recommend.

Bit hard to find as it's off the main streets in Manchester (and I'm not from this area), but a great location centrally once you can find it. There is quite a bit of noise that goes on outside, as it's in a gym and near the comings and goings of the changing room, but the actual treatment room is very relaxing and therapist was fantastic, really working into my tension and knots.

Really professional and welcoming. Everything was explained to me and I left my treatment with what I desired. Relaxation! I was also advised on next steps to take.

I sent my daughter for another facial at Essential Spa. As usual her skin felt smooth, clean and refreshed. The staff are knowledgeable, friendly and excellent at their profession. My daughter and I recommend Essential Spa, value for money, expert skin treatments.

I've been to Essential Spa a few times in the past and have always loved my treatment, but was so disappointed with my Swedish Massage. I explained at the start that I sometimes have a bad back and that I'd like a relaxing massage how ever for the majority of the 30mins I felt very uncomfortable and at times it was very painful around my shoulder blades. The masseuse explained that I had a lot of knots in my shoulders and I persevered thinking my back would feel so much better afterwards. The last 5 minutes was much more soothing and relaxing so I left confident that it would have done some good. As I started to walk home my shoulders felt very sore and the few days following I felt very achy and as though my shoulder blades were bruised - the exact opposite of how I normally feel after a massage! I'm hoping this was just a one off - I normally give 5 stars to Essential Spa and look forward to returning but I won't be going back for a massage again. I feel like I've wasted my money and time - I had to leave work early to make the appointment as my original appointment was rescheduled and this was the only time they could fit me in within the next couple of weeks. I also feel like I've done real damage to my back. While I'm sure this is only temporary, it is the opposite of what I was hoping to achieve with this appointment.

Spa is part of a gym so at midday there is a lot of people walking through past the treatments rooms.
Waxing was not as professional as could have been did run through any issues before hand and was not as thorough as other specialist places in Manchester
