Open to the public as well as patients at Scottsdale Shea Medical Center, the Essential Touch Wellness Spa and Boutique offers a full line of services, relaxation therapies and massage therapy. The staff's goal is to create overall wellness for women and men by relieving stress and eliminating toxins in the body.

When it opened in 2002, Essential Touch was the first hospital spa in the nation. Customer service is what you'll notice first. Staff members here not only want you to feel better, they want you to feel right at home.

The full-service facility features an exercise gym, locker room, showers and steam room. By purchasing a membership, you can use the gym and facilities anytime. An exercise physiologist can help design an exercise program that works for you.

Skilled massage therapists offer clinical and therapeutic massage, as well as specialty massage for pre- and post-op cancer patients. The therapists also do lymphatic massage.

Anti-aging injectables

Because it's a medical spa, Essential Touch also has a nurse practitioner who administers the anti-aging injectables and Botox. Estheticians and nail technicians offer facials, and manicures and pedicures.

Essential Touch is on the first floor of HonorHealth Scottsdale Shea Medical Center at 90th Street and East Shea Boulevard. Valet parking is free. Because the spa is part of the nonprofit organization, no gratuities are accepted. Profits from the spa benefit HonorHealth's women and children's services.

Among the services offered are:

  • Massage therapy, clinical and therapeutic.
  • Body treatments, including wraps.
  • Relaxation therapies.
  • Prenatal and postnatal massage.
  • Infant massage.
  • Waxing services.
  • Aesthetics, such as facials, skin care, Botox.
  • Nail services: manicure/ pedicures.
  • Breast pump rental.
  • Maternity supplies.
  • Hospital room spa services (in patient's room with doctor's order).

Discounted inpatient services

Being located in a hospital means staff members can provide inpatient services at a discount. Mothers in the birthing center upstairs can receive prenatal and postnatal massages. Infant massages are offered, too, as well as one-on-one massage lessons for new parents.

The spa's boutique area offers breast pump rental and extensive nursing and prenatal products. All of the products are clinically approved for new moms. In addition to luxurious loungewear, robes, throws, slippers and baby blankets, the boutique offers a wide array of aromatherapy oils and diffusers. Bariatric patients can find vitamins here.

One of the clients had this to say about Essential Touch: "First of all, it's a full-service spa - everything you need. Second, the service and quality are excellent! Third, FREE valet parking and easy access in and out of the spa. Fourth, the products they use are high quality."

A former client and patient said she has been going there for over seven years. "The few times I've been in the hospital, they've come to my room for services. If you have to be in the hospital, getting a massage or your nails done in your hospital room is quite a treat."
