Refresh and Rejuvenate at This Local Spa

New Services are Coming to Essential Escape Spa + Yoga

As the weather starts to warm up and spring arrives, many people turn to spas to rejuvenate and refresh after the long winter months.  

Essential Escape Spa + Yoga, a spa that opened in December 2021 in Medina, offers clients an authentic spa experience to promote relaxation, detoxification, injury treatment and improvement of overall quality of life. Its focus on customer service builds meaningful relationships with clients that often turn into friendships. Essential Escape's welcoming environment, customer service model and unmatched spa services have contributed to its success at three locations in Medina, Strongsville and Avon.

In 2023, Essential Escape in Medina will introduce exciting new services, including a Vichy shower, a soaker tub and a nail room. The nail room will feature additional add-ons to enhance the manicure and pedicure experience, such as shoulder massages, to provide clients with an even more relaxing and rejuvenating spa experience.

Owner Deanna Fausnight explains how her new additions to the spa experience separate her from other spa locations in the area: “The Vichy shower can be used for a variety of spa treatments, such as body scrubs, body wraps and massages, and is known for its ability to promote relaxation and detoxification.”  

Deanna is also excited about her nail room and soaker tub coming to the Medina this summer. “A soaker tub is a large, deep bathtub that is designed to allow the bather to immerse their entire body in water and it is designed to provide clients with a luxurious and relaxing spa experience. The tub can be customized with aromatherapy oils, bath salts or other treatments to enhance the experience further.”

In addition to their exceptional spa services, Essential Escape offers monthly retreats for 10-12 people that engage local small businesses to highlight their unique products and services not offered at the salon on a regular basis. These exclusive events will provide a one-of-a-kind experience that combines relaxation with exploration and discovery. Due to high demand, spots for these monthly retreats go fast, so interested clients are encouraged to check the Essential Escape website for availability.
