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!
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!!
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!
"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
