I get massages regularly and have for 20 years. This Esalen massage was something else. Reading the description of "Swedish strokes", I wasn't interested, preferring deep tissue work. A friend urged me to try it, saying that she felt the same, but (drum roll), IT WAS THE BEST MASSAGE SHE'D EVER HAD. I began to unwind as soon as I walked into the place. Dim lighting, the sound of running water, quiet. Please get the 90 minute massage. You'll be glad you did. After your massage, you are invited to stay for awhile, gazing at the lighted aquarium or resting in a quiet meditation room. in addition to massage, they have a flotation tank, which I may try, after hearing about its benefits. You can bet I'm making this massage a regular part of my trips to Asheville!
"I usually get some sort of massage every month for tightness in my neck and shoulders from too much computer usage. This week I took an overnight trip to Asheville and had the 75 minute Esalen massage with Ben. The visit started with light touches and progressed to deep tissue therapy. I left in a deep state of relaxation - just what the doctor ordered!" - Trip Advisor Review
"This was our second visit to your spa and we were just as delighted as after our first visit. Thank you so much for accommodating our same day request for massage appointments for my husband and I. It was a great way to relax during our 30th anniversary celebration in Asheville. Ben did an awesome job - easily the BEST massage I've ever had! We look forward to returning to Stillpoint." - Randy and Gail Loeb
