Spa Etiquette

Our goal at Essence is to make your time with us as enjoyable and rewarding as possible. To assist you, we have provided answers to some of the most commonly asked questions.

When should I arrive for my spa treatment?

We suggest you arrive 10 - 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment time to allow you to relax and discuss your requirements with your therapist before your treatment commences.

Can I request a specific therapist?

Absolutely. Essence is proud to be able to offer the highest quality therapists. All our therapists choose to undergo continuous training and education and are at the forefront of their chosen fields.

What if I'm late for my appointment?

This is your special time so please try to arrive on time. Arriving late will not only reduce your time spent with us but the effectiveness of your treatment and your pleasure and enjoyment. Late arrivals will still finish on time so as not to inconvenience the next client and will be charged the scheduled fee as per the original booking.
