Welcome to Essentials
Day Spa

Come relax at one of Denton's hidden gems - a full-service day spa offering skin care, massage & body treatments, and nail & lash services- and see why we've been voted Denton's Best since opening over 20 years ago

The Spa

Founded in 2000 by esthetician Tammy Shaw, Essentials Day Spa is Denton's premier day spa. For over 20 years, our clients have been able to enjoy spa services that combine classic treatments and cutting-edge facial techniques. From our hydrating oxygen facial to the decadent Dentonite spa package, we are sure to have a service & experience that will entice and delight both newcomers and experienced spa-goers alike. 

Nestled snugly in Downtown Denton, Essentials is located about half a mile off The Square in a charming 1920s bungalow. Despite being close to so many dining and entertainment options, our day spa maintains its quiet charm, and has remained one of Denton's hidden gems. 

Our Philosophy


Self-care is a way of life. The services we offer at Essentials use the same distinguished product lines as other luxury spas, without the stress of driving into Dallas: Intraceuticals, Glymed Plus, PCA, NeoCutis, Amber, and BioTone. You can have a pampering day of restoration or beautification, at the hands of experienced and established professionals, close to home. We would like to invite you to indulge your senses and finally make time for yourself. 

What Our Clients Say


Eleanor C.

"Love this little piece of "treat yourself" heaven! They offer a wide variety of services, which is awesome. I've had facials, massages, pedicures and manicures done here and have always left happy. Their prices are great, too! It's a nice, quiet escape. Check it out!"
