Asheville North Carolina has always been known as a healing and teaching center. One of the most popular occupations in Asheville is massage therapist. Massage is a great way to treat the body well, relieve stress, and unwind. Massage helps keep the muscles supple and flexible, and may relieve upper or lower back or neck pain.
For the sophisticated traveler who would also like to visit a luxurious spa while visiting, Asheville offers an abundance of viable choices. In addition to massage, facials, manicures, pedicures, wraps, and more are available.
The Luxury of a Massage in Your Hotel Suite
The Asheville visitor may want a taste of luxury that he may not give himself in his hometown. Some of the luxury hotels in Asheville spoil their guests by booking massages in their hotel suite. Around Town Massage is a local Asheville company that sends a masseuse to your hotel room to perform a professional massage. The licensed massage therapist arrives at the desired place and time with their table, towels, oils, etc., and performs the massage in the comfort of the guest’s hotel suite.
When asked what makes Around Town Massage unique, owner Thalia Morris commented, “It is the fact that we are mobile - this IS our specialty. Most therapists like to have their own location requiring the clients to come to them. We love to travel! Not only do we provide your customary massage, we offer a small menu of mini spa therapies so that clients can create special treatments for themselves for extra pampering.”
Having a mini spa designed to meet your individual needs in your hotel room can add a great deal of luxury to any visit to Asheville.
Have a Travel Concierge Book a Spa Experience for You
Sophisticated travelers to the Asheville area often delegate the task of booking the spa experience. Many luxury hotels in the area provide travel concierge services. A travel concierge will book a spa appointment for you, with the requested services, so you do not have to spend time arranging the spa treatment. The concierge will also provide the directions to the spa for the guest prior to the appointment. He or she will phone ahead to confirm appointments and in some cases offer the guest a list of services to choose from.
There are several excellent spas in the Asheville area to choose from. All offer full services such as facials, manicures, pedicures, wraps and massages. The travel concierge at The Residences at Biltmore, Anna Morin, recommends these as her top choices:
1. Oasis Day Spa on Merrimon Avenue in North Asheville (The travel concierge says this spa goes out of it’s way to accommodate guests and gives them a great experience).
2. Spa Theology on College Avenue in downtown Asheville (Travel Concierge says they offer guests a superb environment for relaxation).
3. Spa at Biltmore Village (This full spa experience is convenient for South Asheville guests).
4. Sensibilities (The concierge says there is a downtown office on Haywood Street and another in South Asheville. Sensibilities offers a wide range of services and products. The spa provides men’s treatments including facials, pedicures and manicures).
It’s time for a spa getaway weekend in the mountains of Western North Carolina. Asheville lives up to its reputation for being a premiere place to heal and unwind from the world’s pressures in a spa environment.
