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!
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!!
The mind/body exploration package was very therapeutic and truly a wonderful experience. The massage with Ben brought up some areas of stored emotions I hadn't realized were there. And the float in sensory depravation really allowed the massage experience to deepen and opened my inner communication in a very real and clear way. I booked again for the next month before I left!
This was a truly wonderful experience for our family time together during the holidays. We were a party of 5- grandmother mother and three daughters ages 30-22-each of us with varying massage experience (my youngest a massage therapist in training to my 83 year old mother who has had only one massage in her life). We loved the esalen massages we received from Emily, Terry and Lisa. Tanya the receptionist was also very thorough and her orientation to the salt floats were so helpful to making the experience anxiety free for those not sure of what the float entailed. Thank you to all for such a lovely day. We will definitely be back. Namaste!
For my wife's birthday, I took the opportunity for a unique experience, learning to give each other a massage. Our host was friendly and knowledgeable, with us taking a turn on the table while the other learned a basic routine, the classic techniques, and a few pointers. We've had experience with massage before - from videos and books, but having a teacher to work with you hands-on was amazing.
Amazing and skilled, state of the art equipment and nurturing environment, excellent care and kindness make Still Point an in town retreat! Corey is an excellent Esalen Massage Therapist, and blends many modalities to give relaxing deep healing through his Massage.
I did not realize that I was carrying such a painful load which surfaced while receiving an Esalen massage from the deliberate yet caring miracle hands of Terrie. It is amazing to me how connected the mind body spirit is - my heart is now open and free of that burden. This is truly a place for healing - my husband and I will be back!
There's not enough room to tell all the good things about Still Point Wellness. Let me just say that we are graced to have Robin and Corey (the owners) in our city. Both Esalen-trained, they are my wish come true, after having massages at the Esalen Institute itself in Big Sur. Robin has been given an international award for her work; she was an instructor at Esalen, and is now busy teaching this wonderful technique to many in the area (YAY!) While she doesn't practice on the public herself much anymore because of her teaching (BOO!), her husband, Corey, is a miracle in human form.
Their facility is just one of many places where their influence is felt in our community. We are thrilled to have them here.....hoping not TOO many people learn about them to keep us (we?) locals from having access! Asheville is becoming a mecca for the diversity of people from all over the world. Still Point Wellness should be a part of your experience here.
