Top 15 Asheville Area Spas

Top 15 Spas & Massage, Asheville

The Asheville area’s reputation as a destination for spa treatments and wellness dates back centuries. Hot Springs, one of the East Coast’s only natural hot spring water sources, has been attracting visitors since its discovery in the 1700s. Its mineral waters are still known for treating a variety of ailments, including anemia, nerve conditions, heart problems and digestive issues.

The railroad transformed Asheville and Buncombe County into a resort and therapeutic health center when it arrived in 1880. Today, the Asheville area has evolved into a premier spa destination and mecca for holistic and alternative health. The region features a diverse mix of massage treatments and wellness services virtually unheard-of outside major metropolitan areas.

Be it a simple weekend of relaxation, a romantic couple’s getaway in the mountains or a chance to improve your health, Asheville is the ultimate destination for those seeking spas and wellness. Pic above: Spa at Grove Park
