As a regular customer to Essential - the salon never fails to provide a tip-top service. Sam (the beautician) is great and the quality of the treatments are extremely high.

Essential Therapy and their therapists never fail to surprise! Again, one of the best waxing experiences I have had - post-wax condition of my skin is very good and duration of hair-free skin is lengthy. Sam (my therapist) is great, a definite recommend.

The hydratone was a relaxing , beneficial way to end the caci treatment.During caci the face can become a little red in some areas due to manipulation of the facial muscles using cotton covered rods .The rods transmit an electrical microcurrent to the facial muscles. in order to lift and tone them.Hydratone moisturises the skin on a deeper level and I've found reduces the redness so I didn't look patchy when I went shopping afterwards. My skin felt well hydrated by this treatment for over a week and the effects of the caci are just magic.

The therapist is calm and friendly.These treatments use a microcurrent to firm the facial muscles.The lifting effect is noticeable after the first session which is 1 hour long.Have recommended caci to family and friends and I'm happy to return to essential therapy for more.

The caci with hydratone is a lovely treatment.I would say the added moisture boost lasted about a week. The firming ,lifting effect of the caci lasts 4 to 6 weeks if you have a course of 8 to 10 treatments first.The number of sessions required depends on the condition of your skin to start of with.The salon is a very pleasant peaceful place and the location very central ,great value for money on a treatment that is normally much more expensive.

Nice reception and treatment room, the therapist was very friendly and put me at ease as it was my first wax. Best of all the wax was barely painful at all!

I enjoyed my treatment and felt very relaxed when I left. I was made to feel very welcome and will certainly return to try other treatments. I liked the position of the salon allowing me to fit in some shopping around my appointment
