Woman Getting a Massage

 

Day spas are great places to unwind and relax. In Asheville NC, you will find a number of great spas to visit, each with their own style and personality. One of the most unique, Shoji spa, located just minutes away from downtown Asheville.

Shoji is an outdoor Japanese style hot tub and massage spa, nestled in the blue-ridge mountains. The view is magnificent.

Your private outdoor hot tub area will be enclosed on three sides by cedar walls but the fourth side is left open, allowing a great of the blue-ridge mountain range and the cityscape. A great place to enjoy the night time sky. The view provides a very powerful feeling. A great place to smoke a cigar if your a man. The view is a one of a kind experience.

There’s not another day spa in Asheville or in the entire state of North Carolina that can come close to matching the breath-taking views at Shoji spa.

But how should you behave when you are at this spa?

Just FYI, in case your planning something crazy!!!  You must wear your robe as you meander through the public areas at the spa but in your private area you’re free to even lose your bath suit in the hot tub.

But Shoji spa in Asheville is not only about the view.

This is a professional spa with great customer service. Winning many awards in the state for outstanding service.

On hand at the spa you will find over 25 licensed massage therapists, who specialize in an array of different massages: From deep tissue to french to stone massages. The Thai massage offered at Shoji is currently very popular.

I definitely am not an expert in massage, I just enjoy receiving. But from what I saw these therapist working at Shoji can provide you with pretty much any type of massage you desire. They even have herbal body wraps. There’s a lot of interesting aspects of this spa.

They are located at:

96 Avondale Heights Road

Asheville, NC 28803
