Our first time to Still Point Wellness, however, my husband and I have been to Esalen and had massages. I had Ben and my husband had Emily. WE would have to say, one of the best massages WE have had since Esalen, thank you. This will be a place that we will return to and highly recommend!!
We had an amazing experience! We chose to have the 90 minute Esalen Massage as a couple. Ben and Lisa were our therapists. It was one of the best massages ever! The technic was different than the usual Swedish massage-we wanted something different. Ben was my therapist and I would definitely get another massage from him! I felt I had a total body and mind healing :-) My hubby had Lisa and said she was exceptional!!! We loved the place and would go back when in the area. It's peaceful, clean and comfortable. We tried to make an appointment for the float tank however they were all booked up so we recommend booking at least 7-10 days in advance even though their online system says different. I think it's always best to call any establishment for making reservations anywhere nowadays.
I felt the quiet, healing, intentional atmosphere of Still Point Wellness as soon as I walked into the reception area. I received an Esalen Massage from Ben Survant. Due to his gifts as a massage therapist, ability to energetically connect with the needs of the client's body, and his gift of creating healing space, it was a deeply relaxing and healing massage.
I can wholeheartedly recommend Still Point Wellness. My first visit was a Mother's Day gift from my daughter - a 60 minute float + a 60 minute Esalen massage. Loved it so much I signed up for the membership and have been treating myself to a monthly massage ever since. Looking forward to floating again soon too - I'd never tried it before but had always wanted to. It was wonderful. I highly recommend Terrie for massage and energy work! I always feel both relaxed and energized after a session with her, and like a months worth of "sludge" has been released, leaving all of my energetic pathways open & flowing. My daughter has seen Ben, and my husband has seen Corey (both for the Esalen massage) and recommend them as well.
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
