Reopening Announcement

We are happy to announce that we plan to re-open Essential Therapies on July 20th, and we would like you to know that your safety and the safety of our staff is our top priority as we move forward.  We will follow all national and state guidelines as we endeavor to make your next visit with us as comfortable and safe as possible. To accomplish this, we are instituting new cleaning, booking, screening, check in, contact tracing, treatment, and payment procedures. We will start with a somewhat limited schedule of appointment times and service types until we can gauge the new level of demand for the services we offer.
