WE'RE OPEN AGAIN FOR TREATMENTS!

Welcome to Essence

We believe that real well-being, that true healing must be grounded in our deepest roots as human beings, rather than coming just from a pill or lotion. If our deepest self is not happy and fulfilled, how can this, eventually, not manifest in our body? We are creating a Centre where anyone can find nurture and healing at every level. Essence is here to support our community, to be a lighthouse, to be a guide back to where we will be our very best.
