My husband and I visited Still Point Wellness to get rejuvenated. I wanted to experience the Floatation. Floating in 1500 lbs of Epsom salt is fantastic! Very unique and took just a bit of time to get acclimated to being in a totally dark room floating in the salt water. Initially I had the door slightly ajar and then closed it all the way. TOTAL BLACKNESS! With ear plugs in and my head resting on a small head float, I totally relaxed and dozed off. The float tank is 8'x8'x8' with a foot of salt water - you do move around while floating. The funny part is when the staff knocked on the door to let me know my time was up, I had to feel along the wall to find the door. Luckily the non-door walls are "rough" so finding the door means finding the smooth wall. My husband did the massage and was very pleased with this too. We also spent an hour in The Relaxation Room. We each had a detoxifying sweat in the Far Infrared Sauna and a warm, stress-relieving session on the Migun massage bed. The balls roll along the entire length of your body (on your back) and you can control the level of intensity that fits for you. The day bed gave a respite to let our bodies. We left totally relaxed and spent the rest of the afternoon taking advantage of our Zen feeling.
I consider myself a massage expert, and Corey and Emily provided us with some of the best massages we've had anywhere in the world! The Esalen massage is quite unique and integrated many techniques we hadn't had before. The ambience is very peaceful and conducive to relaxation.
When in Asheville, treat yourself!
My husband and I made a trip to Asheville for our anniversary. After reading other reviews, I made reservations at Still Point for flotation and Esalan treatments. Having never heard of either of these treatments, I was intrigued. This was truly amazing. The float was remarkable for me. I was able to find a very deep state of relaxation. I followed it up with an Esalan massage with Ellis, who is one of the most talented masseuses I’ve ever met. My husband said the same about Ellis. My Massage was more for relaxation, while my husbands was for deep tissue/sports related injuries. Ellis’s massages are unique and customized for the customer. This was an amazing experience. Don’t miss out!
My wife and I took a weekend trip to Asheville to celebrate her birthday. We found this amazing place on trip adviser and it was rated #1... they more than lived up to the hype. It was our first time trying "Esalen massage" and it was so great. Ask for Emily! We can't wait to come back!
Having never float before, I was blown away by just how relaxing the experience really is. The staff is great and do a great job of making you feel comfortable & at ease with the experience. 10/10!
BEST MASSAGE EVER. My best friend and I met in Asheville for a girl’s day away. We have both been under a great deal of stress for various reasons and decided we wanted to get a massage on our trip. We chose Still Point after reading about the Esalen massage technique they use and were also curious to see the salt water chamber in case we wanted to try it sometime. Terrie was my therapist and she was incredible. She was so in tune with what I needed and I didn’t need to tell her (I like silent massages anyway and had indicated that on my check in form). She knew exactly what I needed and I could tell she was trying her best to help me, not just going through the motions like some other massages I’ve had in the past. I left feeling deeply relaxed and satisfied. The Esalen technique was so unique to what I’ve experienced before and I highly recommend it. If I didn’t live two hours away I’d be back to see Terrie monthly at a minimum!
Corey is professional and great at what he does. He follows up to make sure I am satisfied with the bodywork he performs. The center is immaculate, calming, and staffed with caring people. I have found my "happy place" for healing Esalen massage and I couldn't be happier!
The float was an extraordinary experience. I had no idea something like this was available. My daughter, who enjoys the salt floats in Houston, gave me a gift certificate for the float, saying that I really needed to try it out. She was right! Andrew greeted me and showed me around and explained the process. I was a little apprehensive but he put me right at ease. Once I settled into the water, it was truly amazing. I felt like I didn't even have a physical body. It was so peaceful and soothing. The center itself was beautiful and peaceful. The aquarium that I sat and observed after the float was the most beautiful one I have ever seen. Thanks, Andrew, for making my first visit so pleasant. I will be back!
