Allison Stenhouse Reviews

Book with Allison now

“My husband and I came to the mountains for a few days and decided to get a massage. We had a great experience. My room was very calming and relaxing. Allie did my massage and she was excellent. Her communication skills are excellent and she provided the right amount of pressure and incorporated stones and essential oils to my massage. My husband has Cassidy and he said she was excellent. I can tell you this…..if we lived in the area we would be getting a massage here every 2 weeks….we look forward to next visit to the area so we can come back. Highly recommend them. Excellent and thank you both…many Cheers ✌️”

“Allie is one of the best Massage therapists in Asheville. I have been going to her since before she got this wonderful place on Merrimon Ave.”

~Alex G.

—————————————

It all started when I saw Allie Nova for massages when she operated out of her home, but it only improved when she opened shop on Merrimon. I always book a massage with Allie on our trips to Asheville 2 or 3 times yearly. This weekend, couldn’t see Allie but my appointment with Ayana Shea was just as wonderful. Perfect pressure and great vibes throughout the whole house. Best massage in Asheville.

—————————————

Being a man who pushes my body too much some days, it’s great to have 90 minutes of therapeutic massage from Allie. I appreciate the quiet and comfortable atmosphere of her studio. She is caring, courteous, and has a calming personality. I recommend her to my friends in Asheville.

—————————————

Allie has done a great job setting up her new business! It is inviting, relaxing and very professional. I was lucky enough to enjoy the services of one of her awesome associates. See you soon Allie!

—————————————

Allie is amazing! Has helped tremendously with my lower back and leg problems, and with my wife’s shoulder! Thanks so much!

—————————————

My wife and I went on Jan. 2nd 2016. I had Ayana who gave me the best massage I’ve ever had. She was very passionate and made sure to check in here and there to see if everything was alright. She’d explain different techniques. She and Allison (who my wife had and loved) even met us downstairs afterwards and stayed to talk to us. Great people with great personalities and talent! Even the atmosphere and wood burning fireplace was awesome! Highly recommend! Will be back in the area in a few months and will definitely be back to see them!

—————————————

During the 11 years I have lived in the Asheville area I have come to learn that like restaurants, massage therapists have to be exceptional just to survive because there are so many good ones to choose from. Allie Nova is the best of the exceptional!

—————————————

On my first visit to Blaizing Lotus, Allie provided a level of comfort and relief from chronic neck pain that no others before her could match. Using a customized combination of techniques, Allie unlocked and relaxed every muscle she touched, leaving me in a place of complete relaxation. It has been more than a year and the pain has not yet returned. I have since become a regular, not for pain relief but to treat myself to the blissful space Allie’s skilled hands and peaceful spirit take me to each and every time!

—————————————

I’ve been going to Allie for years. She was my masseuse before she even opened the healing house and had a studio in her home. I’ve gotten a sauna in the new place, and received many massages there. Not only by Allie, but also by other workers there. You will not be disappointed by anyone there.
Another bonus is the location is close to downtown Asheville and easily within walking distance.

—————————————

Travelled to Asheville for my yearly birthday trip and had to book a massage at Allie’s new place (I’ve been seeing her for massages for a few years now – back when she was home based). The new digs only add to the wonderful experience. Quite simply, the best massage around. I’ve been to local therapists in their homes, $200 an hour spas and everywhere in between. None of them compare to the compassionate, professional and healing massage from Allie Nova. I’ll be back again, that’s for sure.

—————————————

Now I have had three massages at Blazing Lotus with Allison Nova. To call them massages is really a great injustice. Actually, as their business card suggests, they are BOUNDLESS BLESSINGS….and BEYOND even that. Master Healers may appear anywhere and you can discover her for yourself at Blazing Lotus. I hugely recommend it.

—————————————

I have been traveling to Asheville for years and have a season pass at the Biltmore House. But, the best part of any trip is a visit with the fantastic staff at Blaizing Lotus! They are fantastic and really embrace the art of massage. I have regular massage treatment at home and have some basis for saying Allie is the very best. The new location expands to provide full spa treatment in a very relaxed and nurturing environment. I can not wait for my next trip and will definitely return.

—————————————

My husband and I have become regulars at Blaizing Lotus and highly recommend the facility and the therapists. Allison and Karine are first class therapists and run a comfortable, clean and serene establishment. I am addicted to a 90 minute therapy. The massages are always customized to what we need that particular day with great additions such as hot stones and cupping.

—————————————

Great massage in a gentle, peaceful atmosphere. I have had 2 massages at Alison’s talented hands and can’t wait for my third. She moved her massage practice from her home to the “Healing House” relatively recently and, with the other practitioners, now offers her clients extended services in a very comfortable but still homey environment. The new web booking tool is also a great way to select and schedule your treatments.

—————————————

My second visit with Ayana and it was even better than the first one. I took advantage of the Dec. special for a 90 minute massage. I loved her thoroughness and particularly like the stretches she included. So intuitive. Allie’s created a wonderful healing environment. Kudos to all!

—————————————

Had a great massage with Allison.  She was very professional and friendly and has a very caring approach with her clients.  She is a very skilled therapist and I highly recommend her!

—————————————

I have been to probably 15 different therapists in my life and have always been searching for the best massage and in the past have been left disappointed. I just had the best massage of my life from Allison. She was thoughtful and thorough. She added so many bonus items at no extra charge and spent extra time with me. I was truly relaxed and bliss-ed out. I will be a regular from now on.

—————————————

Allison and Aiyanna couldn’t have been more warm, welcoming and professional.  Both the staff and facility made you feel comfortable and appreciated while still being efficient (electronic kiosk for patient Forms)and extremely clean. The treatments we received were first rate, thorough and not cookie-cutter in their approach.  Both adjusted to meet our needs and actually exceeded them. This combined with the other inclusive elements of stones, aroma and cupping therapies made for a wonderful experience that was also a great value. We will return to this gem and these beautiful ladies on future visits and certainly recommend Blazing Lotus.  Thank you!

—————————————

What an amazing retreat. I’m so lucky to have found this place while staying at Lake Lure, NC. It was well worth the drive and an experience everyone should put on their “bucket list”.  Allison was so kind and accommodating while making my last minute reservations, greeting me, and solving a booking error. I felt the services were affordable and thoroughly healing. My anxiety as well as any physical and mental stress melted away with the glorious Sound Therapy Swedish Massage by Marina. The icing on the cake was Andrea’s traditional hot cupping that took me back to the healing I received in China almost 10 years ago. I’m not sure if any other spa experience will compare to this due to the caring and talented staff, quaint location, soothing house blended hot tea, and unique services. Thank you for the encouragement to care for myself, the reminder that I deserve to live in the moment and be grateful.

—————————————

Willow and Ally (spelling?) were amazing. I would totally come back regularly if I lived in Asheville. My husband and I had couples massages.

—————————————

That was a fantastic massage!  Not only is Allie a warm and kind person but she is also a great practitioner.  She also incorporated bio freeze, stones, and scents to make the experience fantastic. Far above anything you will get at a resort!

—————————————

WOW!!!! I have been getting massages for over ten years now and Allie Nova is by far the most incredible massage therapist I have ever been to! From the moment that my husband and I contacted Allie her genuine care and love for what she does could be felt. We came up from Florida to get married in NC and were looking for a couples massage while we took our honeymoon. Allie was quick to respond and work with us to create just the experience we were looking for. Her cute spot tucked away in Asheville was a complete zen zone and invited relaxation from all the senses. Allie and her co-therapist Willow were so kind and comforting, connecting with my husband and I and making us feel at home. It only got better from here, the massage was beyond any and all expectations! A combination of aromatherapy, deep tissue, and a little bit of thai, we left completely blissed out! We only wish we lived closer so that we could get massages from Allie on a regular basis and will definitely be returning as soon as possible. I highly recommend Blazing Lotus to anyone who wants an amazing experience from a gifted and beautiful spirit! :)

—————————————

Allie and Willow are amazing, went with my Father as part of a Father’s day weekend thing. Both of us attest that this is the best massage ever. They offer more services, even though I live in Colorado, next time I’ll opt in for Some Thai Yoga!

—————————————

I was in Asheville recently for a weekend of hiking and came across Allie on a different site.  Glad I made the decision to contact her!  The session was amazing and one of the best massages I’ve had!  Little did I know the session would not only include aromatherapy, but also hot stones, cupping, stretching and a heated table!  Allie is a truly gifted healer and cares deeply about the overall person and their well-being!  Whether you’re a local or just passing through, you’d be hard-pressed to find a massage therapist who offers so much of herself, her gifts and talents at this value!  An amazing session!  I’m already looking forward to my next trip back to Asheville and visit to Allie!

My wife and I stopped by for a couples massage and I have to say it was the best massage experience we have ever had.  From the moment we drove up we felt totally at ease.  After a quick hot tub soak Allie and Willow got to work and we LOVED the massage.  I think they incorporated every style of massage I know of and they did it VERY well.  We were SO relaxed and after it was over there was none of that “pay up and leave” stuff going on, we all sat down and talked about all kinds of things.  If you are in Asheville and want a really good massage for a great price give Allie a try!  My only complaint is we don’t live in Asheville so we can’t go back often!  You can bet if we are back in town we will give Allie a call!!!

—————————————

This is the best place to get a massage.  Top quality, wide variety of services including reflexology, hot stones, cupping and aroma therapy, all at a great price.   I was in town on vacation and found Blazing Lotus on Yelp.  Allie and her coworker Willow are wonderful people and top notch professionals.

—————————————

While vacationing in Asheville, we chose to visit Blazing Lotus for a 90 minute couples massage. We were their first couples massage in their new location, which was a beautiful old house and easy to find. We were greeted by Allie and Shay, who took time to talk us about what we were looking for in our experience. The massage room has a very peaceful, relaxing atmosphere, and the whole house was beautifully decorated. We enjoyed the deluxe enhancements to our massages, including aromatherapy, dry brushing, cupping, and hot stones massage. We felt that both Allie and Shay were very thorough, knowledgeable, and experienced with their craft, and we left the experience feeling throughly relaxed. We would highly recommend Blazing Lotus to anyone looking for a great massage experience, in a peaceful environment, for a great value. Thank you for a great experience!

—————————————

I went to Allie for a massage before she acquired the beautiful space that is now the healing house. She is one of the most talented people practicing massage in my humble opinion. I recently returned to the healing house for a sauna which is one of the most inviting places to go to for the plethora of services they offer. Huge open spaces greet you as you walk in from the private parking. Allie and staff have a very down to earth vibe without to sacrificing the professionalism or knowledge you seek at these places. I hear and have witnessed the stand off experience coming from other providers in this field but trust me this is not that. You won’t feel overwhelmed or not welcome here, and you will most certainly leave feeling more rejuvenated than when you arrived. Great place. Will return.

—————————————

I have been in the landscaping business for years and the repeated labor has done a number on my body.  Over the past few years I have tried several different massage therapists and chiropractors but none have come close to providing me the comfort and relief that Allie Nova has accomplished.  Her comprehensive approach at massage – a combination of Esalen, Lomi-Lomi, and Thai techniques accompanied by aromatherapy, hot stones, acupressure, cranial sacral and reflexology – reaches all the deep aches and locked muscles leaving me in a place of complete relaxation.  I have paid much more for similar massages at high-end spas and they don’t hold a candle to the work you will get done at Blaizing Lotus.
I highly recommend trying Allie for your next massage – you will not be disappointed!

—————————————

Best massage ever. Allie and Willow (I got the 4-handed massage) asked me what my problem areas were and then tailored the massage to me–mixing different kinds, so it was some swedish, some thai and some i-don’t-know-what. I do, however, know that it was amazing. Oh, and seriously affordable. I’ve had expensive massages at fancy, high-end, found-it-in-a-magazine spas, and they didn’t even come close to Blazing Lotus. The whole experience was fantastic.

—————————————

I travel alot.  After driving, my back and shoulders hurt.  I have found Nirvana!  Allie is by far one of the best professional massage therapists i have ever found!   The spa is named in memory of her daughter.
1. She is kind and gentle in personality.  Her peace pervades her massage so you leave at peace.  She unwinds the mind, body and spirit.
2.  She has the ability to remove the sore muscle and transform it to new before she replaces it.  The “Lomi-Lomi” is magic.
3, She charges reasonable rates unlike the exorbitant rates of the other spas in town.  Her web site shows packages.
4.  She offers wraps etc which i have not yet used,  She also has a shower to wash the oil off afterwards.
5.  If you want the pools of Grove Park, this is not for you.  But, if you want the best massage of your life at prices you can afford – this is the place!

—————————————

During the 11 years I have lived in the Asheville area I have come to learn that like restaurants, massage therapists have to be exceptional just to survive because there are so many good ones to choose from.  Allie Nova is the best of the exceptional!  On my first visit to Blaizing Lotus, Allie provided a level of comfort and relief from chronic neck pain that no others before her could match.  Using a customized combination of techniques, Allie unlocked and relaxed every muscle she touched, leaving me in a place of complete relaxation.   It has been more than a year and the pain has not yet returned.  I have since become a regular, not for pain relief but to treat myself to the blissful space Allie’s skilled hands and peaceful spirit take me to each and every time!

—————————————

I have had the great fortune of receiving a massage from Allison and an acupuncture treatment from Ella at the Blaizing Lotus Healing House. Allison’s work was incredibly nurturing, intuitive, and healing. I walked out feeling super relaxed, opened, and happy. Ella’s treatment was also amazing. I immediately felt the movement and change in my body and energy system based on the points she chose. Ella is very knowledgeable in her field. I highly recommend checking them out!

—————————————

Blaizing Lotus is the best spa that I’ve ever been to. I’ve had a massage by Allie. And she is great at massages. It was very relaxing and healing. Her space is always so beautiful. I’d love to see her new spa. And I will make it there soon.

—————————————

Truly first rate!  Expect complete bliss and happiness in this extraordinary healing house!
I had thrown out my neck the day before and needed relief.  I knew that the condition was attributed to overly tight muscles in the shoulder area and so I sought a massage specialist over a chiropractor.  Due to time constraints, I had time for only a 30-minute massage but let me tell you….it was just what my neck, shoulder and upper back needed! In this short period of time, I experienced aromatherapy, cupping, hot stones, hot towels, percussive treatment and the ultimate in relaxation from Allie, the proprietor of Blaizing Lotus.  The inviting decor complemented the serene atmosphere.  In my opinion, interior decorating could have been Allie’s unique calling but she is also truly blessed with healing hands.  Within five minutes, I could tell that Allie put her heart into her work much like an artist will paint with his or her heart.  What a gem of a place!  There is also parking in the lot behind the building.  I also appreciated that the location (north Asheville bordering on downtown but without the frenetic parking situation that is found downtown) was so accessible. I’m so happy that I found Blaizing Lotus.  I shall return!!!

—————————————

I had my first massage with Ally and it was the best one I’ve ever had. I have paid for massages at many salons and resorts, including Grove Park, and this one was by far, the best I’ve ever had. Ally knew exactly how to use different techniques to achieve the desired goal of relaxation and loosening up tight muscles. I recommend her to everyone. It was an amazing experience.

—————————————

I had never had a massage prior to meeting Allison so I was a little nervous to say the least. Not knowing what to expect I went and was very pleased with the entire experience. Very professional, very talented, very helpful, very kind, and very skilled. I would recommend Blazing Lotus for anyone. Thanks Blaizing Lotus!

—————————————

Cozy little private massage studio. We had the couples massage and both enjoyed our therapist ally and willow. They both really love what they do. Ally was my therapist and did a fantastic custom mix massage incorporating many different techniques. Perfect price for us and away from fancy spas settings.

—————————————

Allie is a great massage therapist! She is present and attentive for the duration of the massage. Her therapy is very well paced and it flows smoothly. I received the mixed massage (Swedish mixed with deep tissue) and it was one of the best ones I have ever had. I particularly enjoyed the use of hot stones, aromatherapy, and Thai yoga stretches. Allie is an incredible therapist: kind, attentive, present. The prices are very reasonable for the great massage you’ll receive!

—————————————

I had my first of many appointments with Allie yesterday afternoon. The experience was wonderful. I liked the homey feel of the enviroment it, was very comfortable and calming. I’ve had massages at other places that were enjoyable and relaxing but I really felt like I was really being pampered and taken care of. Thanks so much Allie. See you soon. Shelly

—————————————

Allie is such a kind and caring person as well as the best massage therapist that I have ever been to.  A lot of professionals claim that they love what they do (not just speaking of massage), but Allie is the first one that I have met that it truly shows through. She is a true master of her art.

—————————————

My daughter and I went together for her 18th birthday.  This was a first time experience for both of us.  We absolutely enjoyed the experience.  Allie and her colleague Willow are very heart felt people who show true love and compassion for their work.  From the time you arrive to the time you get up and leave they are making you feel at home, and also treat you like a friend they have known for years.  I honestly would recommend them to all of my family and friends.  My daughter and I look forward to many more appointments.

—————————————

My doc recommended a massage for relief from shoulder and neck pain. After a single trip, my pain diminished and within a couple days I was back to normal. I have no doubt that Allison’s massage put me on the road to recovery.

—————————————

I have had many “spa” treatments in many locations. Allison and her staff are fabulous. Very caring,
Sensitive to your needs and genuinely concerned that you benefit from their services. Summer is an amazing intuitive therapist . Ayana is expert at Thai.

—————————————

I’ve seen Allie numerous times and saw Ayana this weekend. Both are absolutely the best massage therapists around. I come to Asheville 2 or 3 times a year and I always book a relaxing massage at Blaizing Lotus. You will simply not find a better massage.

—————————————

I went here for the first time since moving to Asheville and I definitely found my go to massage therapist. It’s a very inviting home studio that has a way better vibe than the chain spots you can get oversold at. Allie is a phenomenal human being that places you at ease from the start. With a horrible spine surgery I have had many massages from many different places around the country, but the one I received from Allie was the best one I’ve had so far. She is ridiculously skilled and you can tell through the massage. Hopped in the sauna afterwards which topped off my day, and soon to be routine of healing. I’d recommend her to anyone. She never asked me to write a review either. This is purely thanks for finding an amazing massage therapist/person and hopefully helping to spread the good word.

—————————————

Everyone that works here is so sweet! This was only my 3rd massage of my life and they made me feel so comfortable. I had a problem with my shoulder and she worked on that area. The next day I wasn’t feeling the pain and numbness I was before! It was like massage Magic!!! The owners are some of the sweetest people I’ve ever come across and I highly recommend this place!

—————————————

My wife and I both go to Blaizing Lotus. My therapist, Allison, was excellent. I have a bad lower back and she did a number of stretches before I had to get off the table. Usually it hurts to get down off the table after laying for so long. Not so this time. Recommended.

—————————————

There aren’t enough stars to give to this experience. I’ve had a lot of massages over the years, but this was the best by far. Allie has a depth and intuition that is hard to find. I was struggling with some back and neck issues due to travel and CrossFit and needed some relief. We talked about what was going on, and I just let her go to work. Everything was perfect. Allie was completely into the session, was responsive and attentive to my needs. The integration of hot stones and aromatherapy (new to me) really added to the experience. On top of all that, its a really cool facility. I can’t say enough good things. If I find myself back in Asheville, I’ll be booking time at the Blazing Lotus!

—————————————

Allie is a true professional. She takes time to get to know you and what you seek. Her massage therapy skills are excellent. I love the aroma therapy! (You can create your own sequence of aromas if you make an appointment via her website.) I highly recommend Blaizing.

—————————————

Allie is a truly exceptional therapist. Every massage is different and always seems better than the last! Her outstanding professional skills combined with her great attitude and enthusiasm will make you want to see her again and again, as I do! Better hurry up and make an appointment fast because she is one of those rare therapists who won’t need to solicit new business for very long!
—————————————
Allie, Thank you so much for everything you do. You are truly gifted at making people feel relaxed. If I’m sore or tense, you seem to know exactly what to do. I love your passion as a healer!
 —————————————
After being a client of many, many massage therapists over the years, I have been a devoted and consistent client of Allie’s for many months now, and i can safely say that she is one of the best, most sensitive, and amazing therapists I have ever been blessed with.  Thank you, Allie, and keep up the amazing work!
 —————————————
I have had many massages over the years. None have come anywhere close to Allie’s work. Allie, you provide caring massage in a wonderful setting. Thank you Allie!
 —————————————
Allie is an amazing therapist and a wonderful friend. Her sessions are started with a friendly catch-up as we discuss whats going on in our lives, and also talk about any physical issues that may be of concern. Then the massage is started with amazing essential oils which help to relax as I feel the stress dissapear. During the massage she knows just how much pressure to put in each spot without me telling her… a little less for those spots that are tender, and a little rougher where I can handle it. Her method of intuitive massage is fantastic and highly recommended.
Bless you Allie. See you soon!
 —————————————
Allie! I love your website. As most things that I have seen and learned from you, its beautiful! I hope I am in Asheville sooner than later to recieve a treatment from you! By the way, I love the name of your business. You have turned that experience in your life into something so wonderful. Keep on trucking girl! I love you!!! Love and Blessings, Courtney
 —————————————
WOW! What can I say? Having never been privileged to a 4 hand massage before I really didnt know what to expect. Allie and Willow made me feel at home from the second I walked in the door, like an old friend. They worked together so well I was in heaven for an entire hour and a half. It was the most casual atmosphere during a massage I have ever been in. I have had massages all over the country and in many parts of the world…..They are right up there with the best! So if you want a great massage go see them….tell them their old friend Mark sent you. Allie and Willow…I will be back to see you again!
 —————————————
Allie’s a great massage therapist, but what makes me try to get in to see her once a month is her authentic, loving nature. From the moment I walk in to the moment I leave, I feel special, appreciated, nurtured and connected both to her and to the best parts of myself. She’s sweet, intelligent, open-hearted and real, a combination which is impossible to fake and very difficult in my opinion to find anywhere, much less in a professional service provider.
 —————————————
Allie is an Angel! I’ve seen her several times for a massage and each session is better than the previous one. She’s caring, professional and genuinely concerned for my well-being. Her massages are excellent and she consistently inquires about the pressure and adjusts it to my comfort level. Thanks Allie. . .You are WONDERFUL!
 —————————————
My husband and I both love a good massage and over the years we have experienced many different types of massages in many diverse locations. We’ve had them on a beach in the shade of swaying palms serenaded by the sound of crashing waves, in the privacy and quiet of our vacation home and in beautiful, although over-priced, world-class spas. We tend to like different things in a massage. He likes the basics, deep tissue and swedish, while I prefer aroma-therapy and spa treatments.
Allie was able to satisy us both. I enjoyed a 4 hands massage with peppermint towels,sugar scrub, facial and body-wrap. My husband opted for just the 4 handed massage, which was a new experience for us both. We conquer with everyone else…Allie is thoughtful, intuitive and very good at what she does. We will be visiting her again soon and wishing her LUCK, PROPSPERITY, and GREAT HAPPINESS!!!
 —————————————
I have had alot of massages and spa treatments in Asheville and none even come close to Allie’s Services. I had the a full spa experience and I feel more relaxed than I have in years. Allie and Willow both are very good at what they do because they really care about you and want to help you feel better in your every day life. Thank you both so much. MUCH LOVE AND HAPPINESS!!!
 —————————————
I had a great massage by Allie for my birthday — but not ON my birthday. It was majickal the way I was surrounded by beauty on that day… not only was I relaxed, but I seemed to be radiating love, and other people could tell…
 —————————————
I have had professional spa treatments and massages in places that extend from Indonesia, Thailand, and parts of South America and based on those experiences, I can honestly say that Allie knows exactly what she is doing. Not only does she make you feel totally relaxed when you come in to see her, but she can provide just about any kind of treatment based on what you want. My most recent treatments included the Hot/Cold Moonstone Facial, which felt great and gave my skin a nice glow. I also got the Body Scrub and Wrap, which also felt amazing and made my skin very soft. I loved it and would definitely get both treatments again. Not only are Allie’s healing services stellar, but she is truly an amazing person!!
 —————————————
Allie you are such a beautiful person inside and out~! I love the website and I’m sure you are doing wonderfully <3 Everyone please take time to enjoy one of Allie’s exceptional massages she really does great work~! Allie, I really hope I can get up to Asheville soon to come see you and to make an appointment~ Much Love to All.
 —————————————
I feel blessed that my first massage experience was with Allie. I will admit I was a bit apprehensive beforehand, I wasn’t quite sure that I would enjoy having a stranger rub my body. Before the massage began, we sat and chatted for a few minutes and due to Allie’s warmth and kindness, she was no longer a stranger. The moment you step foot into the massage room, the relaxation begins-it looks, smells, sounds and feels wonderful. The massage itself was amazing, Allie’s hands are magic. After the massage, I enjoyed an exfoliating body scrub and then a fabulous warm shower and the cherry on the cake, a warm towel!!! An absolutely wonderful experience-thank you Allie!
 —————————————
I came to the area from Ohio for some R&R and to get away from the hussle and bustle of work and everyday life stressors. I was heading to the mountains near Bryson City and decided that massage would be a great way to start my time off as it was on my way to the cabin. I found Allie’s advertisement and decided to give her a call in order to get massage therapy while I was in the area. Well, I ended up going to her her twice in the 4 days I was there. It was well worth it and I’d highly recommend her. I have had professional massage for many years now. Many places have quotas to make or you feel as if you need to get in on time and out on time. You never truly have the chance to relax while you are there. You will not find that with Allie. She ensures that you have a “total” massage experience. From the time you walk in the door Allie makes you feel very welcome as well as relaxed. She has a very positive and caring personality, is very intelligent, and takes her time getting to know you and what your needs are. She explains everything that she is doing as well as anything she uses in the process and makes sure the massage pressure is just right. I believe she truly enjoys what she does and it comes through in her attitude, massage services as well as the results you get.  Thanks Again Allie!  -Tom

Allie is a very accomplished massage therapist. I had my first appointment today and came away feeling so relaxed and stress free. I felt like we were old friends. She has a very special gift and caring spirit. My individual needs were recognized and addressed sensitively and professionally. By far the best massage I have ever had.  Thank you Allie. :)
 —————————————
Absoulutely the best massage i have ever had. Allie has a wonderful personality to go with her healing hands. She has a real gift and even more so she cares and it shows through in her work. Most relaxed i have been in months. Thanks Allie.
 —————————————
I just started getting massages from Allie a couple of months ago and she is truly one of the most amazing therapists I have seen (and I have been to hundreds!). She is so in touch with where my body needs the most work, the right amount of pressure and literally heals the pain away every time. She a beautiful person who is professional, intuitive, compassionate and loves what she does.
—————————————
I was able to get a massage from Allie a couple of weeks ago. Allie was amazing!!!! I felt like I had known Allie forever. She is a very sweet and beautiful person, who seemed to really care about me as an individual. I can’t wait to go back and experience her touch once more. I felt so free and comfortable. Thanks Allie.

One day, years past, I found myself snuggled down and holding tightly to a lamp post on the Pier in Uig at Isle of Skye, Scotland; waiting for the ferry to the Outer Hebrides, the clouds had come down and the waves came up with winds gusting to 80 mph. Beaten down, I made little snubbed assaults against the wind – lamp post to lamp post – somewhere in between sensing that I might make a better day for myself by taking refuge in the interior peaks and rolling terrain of the Quiraing (can Google for images) rather than be buffeted into the frigid sea. The Quiraing is a mystifying place, and even seemed to channel the winds to some sense of resonant soothing stability. There I was able to find a relaxing spot, laying flat on a pinnacle of rock softly strewn with golden lichens and rich mosses where my mind floated with ease and pleasant vertigo as I searched for a horizon, to find myself comfortably nestled between the protective escarpments and cradled by the contours of the land flowing about me, uplifting me beyond the winds of the morning. So it is with Allie’s massage. I had a sense that my body and mind could use some relaxing down time. She provided this, and the caring energy she radiates in the process kept me feeling rejuvenated well after the session ended – felt like I floated home. Would like to see her again.
 —————————————
People, listen to me! It is not often that I take the time to gush about someone, but Allie is the absolute best message therapist I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. I am a deep tissue massage seeker, and finding someone who gives their all to make you feel better is a rare find. Allie may be fairly new to the business, but she has great techniuques, (Some are quite original) and is intent on connecting with you. I look forward to giving a lot of money to Allie in the future. How can you go wrong with the Blaizing Lotus????

I travel alot and have been searching for a great massage in the Asheville area without the sterility of a spa. (The Grove Park is great, but who can afford it and the massages are from new kids). Found Allie’s ad and liked the reviews.  Let me tell you, they are all wrong. They do not begin to describe how great she is. A very NEAT person who is fun to talk with. As stated above, she starts off the massage sitting on the couch and talking with you – finding out how you are and what is hurting. Then the magic begins. Tranquility heaven.  Thanks Allie.

Allie brings humor and heart to her work as well as great anotomical skill, she truely touches you from the heart. You will leave each session with peace and balance in mind, body and spirit.

I have to tell everyone that gets on the testimonials page that I had the best massage ever with Allie. Not only with Allie, but with Willow as well. If y’all have never had a 4 handed massage, it is absolutely heaven. If you make it an hour and a half it is even better. Allie’s place is warm, inviting and very relaxing from the moment you walk in. It is that way, because that is Allie in a nutshell. I guarantee you will fully enjoy your experience here and walk away feeling wonderful and relaxed. I know I did. Made me feel like a KING!!!

I’m feeling wonderful and so rejuvenated from my massage! Your skills and incredible energy are a perfect combination in providing the healing benefits that are so essential in a massage. You have a gift, my dear, and I feel so blessed to have found you – Thank you, Allie!

I was injured in Baghdad in 2005. I was 7 feet away from a car bomb blast. I have had several surgeries and countless trips to back specialist. I have tryed every treatment suggested. After Allie finished giving me a deep tissue massage was the first time in 6 years I could remember that my neck didn’t hurt. I had recovered much of the movement that had been restricted. I told Allie that I didn’t know what to expect because I had never had a message. She was patient and totally professional. Allie really cares and that showed in almost all aspects of my visit. I live about 2 hours away but I will be sure to make an appointment every time I visit Ashville. I can’t say enough good things. You’ll have to visit yourself to experience it.

Experience was unbelievable!!! Thank you again for working me in.  I will have to try and find a reason to get back to Asheville soon.  I actually think the stretching helped a lot, and my back feels the best it has in months. Thank you so much for an amazing massage today! It’s the best I have ever had and will definitely be coming back! 😀

I have experienced massage form all over the world and thought I had received some of the best available. However, I did not know the best massage that I would ever get would be in my own backyard with Allie. She is an incredible human being with a true healing spirit.

We had the privilege of having our first massage from Allie and Willow for our 7th anniversary. The atmosphere was inviting and the company was great. My wife and myself never having a massage, Allie and Willow made Kat’s and my experience one to remember. Being a business owner myself, I know that a memorable experience is not always as much the purpose for being there as it is the people and attitude of those that are providing the services. My wife and I are very pleased with the level of professionalism, care, and ability to ease tension of first time worries and tense muscles. We thank the BOTH of you for having us and giving us a memory to take with us for our lives…..and we WILL be back!

First let me start off by saying what a truly kind, sweet & caring person Allie is.  To be honest I wasn’t really sure what to expect my first visit but let me tell you Allie made me feel very welcomed, comfortable and right at home.  It’s hard to put into words how extraordinary & amazing Allie’s massage’s are!!  But let me tell you that after my first visit I felt incredibly relaxed, lighter on my feet, rejuvenated and energized.  Allie is a very professional & extremely gifted therapist and healer!  The Blazing Lotus studio is lovely and very comfortable its first class all the way!  I highly recommend that you make an appointment & do yourself a favor and treat yourself to one of Allie’s incredible massages or spa services you will not be disappointed!  Thank you Allie for being such a wonderful and lovely person you’re truly blessed with a great gift!  Best wishes and much love!!

As a personal trainer and physique competitor, I know what muscle soreness is.  Of all the massage therapists that I’ve ever visited, Allie is THE best! She’s one of the most kind, caring, and competent professionals I’ve ever met.  The deep tissue/sports massage which I received from her was second to none.  I highly recommend Allie!
 —————————————
Allie is such a kind and caring person as well as the best massage therapist that I have ever been to.  A lot of professionals claim that they love what they do (not just speaking of massage), but Allie is the first one that I have met that it truly shows through. She is a true master of her art.
 —————————————
I always get the blended service and Allie is THE BEST THERAPIST I have have ever been too.  I leave her studio feeling like a new man.  She always makes me feel comfortable and is great to talk to also.  You don’t know what your missing unless you try her.

Allie’s one of our best assets in Asheville, and it’s her high energy that keeps things happy even in the minds of the people she doesn’t know… 😉

I went here for the first time since moving to Asheville and I definitely found my go to massage therapist. It’s a very inviting home studio that has a way better vibe than the chain spots you can get oversold at. Allie is a phenomenal human being that places you at ease from the start. With a horrible spine surgery I have had many massages from many different places around the country, but the one I received from Allie was the best one I’ve had so far. She is ridiculously skilled and you can tell through the massage. Hopped in the sauna afterwards which topped off my day, and soon to be routine of healing. I’d recommend her to anyone. She never asked me to write a review either. This is purely thanks for finding an amazing massage therapist/person and hopefully helping to spread the good word.

Thank you Allie, for a wonderful massage experience. You have a healing and very gifted touch. I look forward to scheduling another appointment soon. Again, many thanks. Glad to have found you. Still glowing.
