“The house was gorgeous, the receptionist was so personable and bubbly. Once we got into our room for our couples massage TJ and Suki were just amazing. Suki gave me a prenatal massage and listened to my needs along with always having her hands on me whether she was letting me know she was there or actually massaging. My husband was nervous to get a massage from a man but TJ went above and beyond and really knew how to get the spots that were bothering my husband. They were also very cool whenever my husbands I watch kept going off also we were just married so the receptionist made us hot chocolate with cookies and a gift for our first visit. I will definitely recommend along with buy some certificates for my friends and family!”
“Had a 90 minute integrative massage with TJ and he did an outstanding job in loosening up the knots in my back. Definitely a massage therapy rockstar who kept the mood comfortable and fun, he was constantly checking in on how everything was feeling. I’m definitely going to go back!”
“I had an amazing massage here! The atmosphere is lovely. My massage therapist was TJ, and he was fantastic. He didn’t just go through the motions, but really took the time to tailor the massage to my body. I can’t wait to visit again!”
“I experienced a sudden injury in my lower back this week. I received a massage the very next day at Wild Rose Healing House. TJ was highly effective restoring my full range of motion and eliminating my pain. Also appreciating the deep sleep and emotional lift that followed. So grateful for the high skill level and attention to detail from TJ and all the therapists I’ve experienced at Blazing Lotus and Wild Rose Healing Houses (11 so far).”
“Suki and TJ were amazing! I’ve had many other massages but this one was the absolute best I’ve ever had! She somehow worked miracles on my problem areas! Def recommend!”
“I’ve been to Blazing Lotus twice. They have procedures in place for Covid. On my first visit I was provided hand sanitizer and my temperature checked. Only so many can be in the waiting area at a time. Even with the procedures in place I’ve been warmly greeted each visit.
Blazing Lotus is a converted 100 year old home just outside of Downtown Asheville. There is a small parking lot in the back of the house.
I liked that the website had details about all the massage therapists so I knew I needed TJ as he is well aware of the shoulder and with my shoulder injury that is what I needed. I made the right choice as his expertise has helped my shoulder. Appointments are easy to book online.
The massages are a little different here in that they use a lot of modalities from cupping to hot stones to hot towels to aromatherapy to my favorite biofreeze. But it is all integrated very well. Also when you ready to start, there is a doorbell to ring. Then afterwards there is a followup with helpful tips.
I wish I lived closer so that I could go more often but it is very much worth the drive.”
“Great! My husband and I both had great experiences during recent massages. The environment was very warm and inviting. The Covid precautions made us feel comfortable. I had prenatal massage with Paige. She made me feel relaxed and at ease. My husband said TJ was able to meet his deep tissue desire for some of the knots he had from running.”
“Another 5 star experience at Blazing Lotus! My wife and I were in for two 90 minute massages yesterday and we were both so happy with our visit! She was paired with TJ who paid special attention to areas where she needed extra work. He even added cupping to her massage which was new to her, and she was excited to try it! I was with Daniel who also focused on the areas in my back that were super tight. He had great pressure and showed me some stretches at the end. These guys, along with the rest of the staff were great when booking, receiving service and check out. We will definitely be back for a 3rd visit!”
“Me and my partner booked a couples massage at Blazing Lotus as part of our mini-honeymoon, and it was absolutely wonderful. TJ and Letha were so friendly, helpful, and experienced. It was my first massage ever, but my partner has had massages before and he said it was the best he’s had.
The house itself is really cute- we got free samples as first customers, and they also offer water and loose leaf tea complimentary while you wait. I highly recommend!”
“Just completed a couples massage. Best massage ever! Shelby and TJ were absolutely fabulous. Super sad we don’t have a place like this at home. If you’re in Asheville and need some R&R this is the place for you. They are super clean and make sure all guests are safe from Covid. They provided us a free gift from a basket when we checked out.”
“Wow!! What an amazing experience we had with our massages!! It was no￼t feel good fluff (although it felt amazing)… it was a real healing time.￼ You could tell both TJ and Suki wanted you to leave feeling well… and we did!￼ I would highly recommend anyone investing yourself with this wonderful place… a true gem in the mountains of WNC!”
“My husband and I came to Asheville for our anniversary. We booked 90 minute massages – orchid and rose. We’ve had treatments at resorts (including Grove Park Inn), cruise ships, etc… We both had a fantastic experience! Paige and TJ are very talented! My husband and I both said we felt like we had a “real massage” for once. Highly recommend!!!”
“Our couples massage was amazing! TJ and Kristen both did a great job! My husband and I had drove in from Tennessee, and it was so nice to relax and let all the stress go!”
“Great experience! I had massage, scalp treatment, and cupping. Firstly, they were very good at meeting the expected measures for protection during COVID-19. The place is very neat, clean, and calming. The staff were all very friendly and warm. TJ was my masseuse, and he was great. TJ has a very kind and gentle demeanor. He was very attentive to my specific needs, and made me feel comfortable. He checked with me regularly during the treatment to make sure my pressure was right. He did a great job focusing on my problem areas, and even gave me tips before leaving on postural changes and ways to minimize my specific problems in the future. I 100% recommend Blazing Lotus and TJ!”
Awesome massage! TJ was great. Aromatherapy is a great touch but what I enjoyed most was the hot stones and cupping. I’ll definitely be back!
“Just had a couples massage , TJ and Kristen did MIND BLOWING WORK!!!! I recommend this place to anyone that needs some relaxation and/or body work done. We will def come back next time we are in town.”
“We’re from Chicago and were looking for the best Massage Therapy center in Asheville. We wanted real body work, not over priced fluff and spa tricks “which Asheville is full of”. We had heard about TJ at Blazing Lotus through a friend so we booked with Blazing Lotus. “Everyone” and “everything” about our time there was hands down the best we’ve ever experienced. Valerie was my husband’s therapist and is equally talented. It is in our hope that other people will be able to experience real body work because most “just like us” don’t know what that is until you get it. We will be back and will continue to spread the word. Please open a location in Chicago!”
“In town for out 28th wedding anniversary! Decided we would get a couple massage and we both had the best massage ever! T.J. and Amy did an amazing job! Thanks guys!!!”
“I had a really excellent massage this week by TJ Grant. The Healing House is a wonderfully relaxing environment and TJ is a really great therapist.
I definitely recommend “The Gentleman’s Journey” which is a 90 minute Deep Tissue Massage with assisted stretching, hot towels, cupping, hot stones, and aromatherapy.”
“The best massage I’ve ever had! Kind of a blend of deep tissue and swedish (as my therapist asked questions ahead of time as to what I wanted/needed)….in the perfect zen like surrounding. My girlfriends and I were enjoying a weekend in Asheville and easily booked online ahead of time. My therapist was TJ– he was perfectly communicative and comfortable. Since I work in Asheville fairly regularly, I’ll be back!”
“Fantastic! TJ and Val treated my fiancée and I to a couples massage, and it was easily the most relaxing and productive massage I’ve ever had. TJ was able to alleviate some pressure in my lower back, and find the right balance of pressure on my Rugby injury-riddled body. My fiancée loved Val’s massage as well, she came out of the session refreshed and feeling extremely relaxed. I highly recommend this place.”
“Today T.J. was my massage therapist. Awesome!!! Cannot day enough good things about the massage and the entire experience. Simply grand.”
“Rejuvenation. Moved to Asheville last week, and between the truck loading and long drive aggravated my hip to the point of it impacting walking etc..I am a nurse who feels that massage is an important part of maintaining wellness, and am cautious about booking massage with just anyone. Based on reviews..booked an integrative massage with TJ. From the moment you step through the door you feel the relaxing and healing atmosphere..TJ listened to my issues and proceeded to work on my hip using different techniques as well as Swedish massage for the rest of my battered body. By the end of the session I had much improved range of motion and by the end of the day my hip issue was barely noticeable. He gave me exercises to try at home and I will return next week for another session. I highly recommend TJ and Blazing Lotus for therapeutic massage.”
“This is by far the best place I’ve ever been to get a massage. After three visits, I cannot recommend Blazing Lotus highly enough. From the minute you walk in, everyone is welcoming and friendly; it is a strikingly peaceful environment, very calming. I’ve had sessions with Daniel and T.J., and both were excellent; T.J. has worked wonders with my “frozen shoulder” issue. I have definitely become a long-term customer.
“Entire body renewal. Booked and had “The Lotus Package” with T.J. This was probably the best 2 hours of my life in many many many months. My shoulder has no pain for the first time in 2 1/2 months! Thank you!”
“This was completely fantastic in every way. T.J. was very attentive and thorough with each part of the massage. I am very glad I booked the Lotus Package!”
“Booked based on the great Google reviews and oh my goodness were they right! Everything was absolutely perfect! We did the premium couples massage, 90 minutes. Best couples massage we’ve ever had.The hot stones and hot towels were the perfect temperature. The therapists (TJ & Paige) were quiet and respectful but understood exactly how much pressure, focus areas, etc we needed. After the session they spent a few minutes going over what they noticed about our bodies and gave tips on posture to help with problem areas. Ambient air temp was perfect. Music volume was perfect. All the little things I’ve had issues with other spas in the past were not issues here! Couldn’t recommend enough.”
“Amazing! TJ uses various techniques that helped me to relax and relieve tension. Thank you, can’t wait to go back!”
“I have had many massages, but never one that was therapy for my body. TJ took the time to find out what my body needed to feel better!. My daughter had her first massage ever with Micah. He made her feel very comfortable and helped her with sore spots from too many sports. Myan the receptionist is a doll. She truly believes in everyone that works at Lotus, and is patient with new customers. The house is cozy, clean and inviting. We will definitely be back. Thank you for a wonderful day. Hugs”
“GREAT BIG SHOUT OUT TO TJ for the best message ever! I work as a nurse so lots of bending, standing, pulling and pushing on patients. My back was killing me everyday!! TJ worked wonders and helped my back so much, he showed me stretches to really help. I’ve never had a message to do so much for my inner and outer body, this really is a healing house!!”
“We had an amazing experience and massage at the Blazing Lotus Healing House. The receptionist was very friendly and so helpful. She made us feel very at home and welcome. TJ gave me a wonderful massage. I cannot wait to go back again!”
“TJ was incredibly helpful. Not only did my 30 minute head/neck/shoulder massage help relieve the horrible pain of the knots I went in with in my right shoulder and neck, but he also gave me advice about how to do self-care if/when I found I couldn’t return for a follow up treatment. My shoulder feels SO MUCH BETTER — and he was so knowledgeable. Also, the staff was kind, accommodating, generous and helpful. Will definitely recommend and return!”
“After a brew filled vacation in the beautiful city of Asheville, I wanted to ensure my 30th birthday celebration went out with a bang! I booked a couples massage for my girlfriend and I on our final day in the city. I’ve had a massage a few years back but never with a partner. I didn’t really know what to expect but the reviews seemed promising so I booked with TJ and Melanie in the relaxing Thailand Room.
Couple standout features about this place:
-The location is extremely close to downtown. We stayed at the Four Points Sheraton and you could probably throw a stone at it (pun intended) .
-Unlike some parts of central Asheville, there is parking!
-Complimentary tea was a hit with my girlfriend.
-The interior is super cozy. Immediately felt at home.
-You get one free add on with your massage. I picked the hot towels while my girlfriend picked the hot stones. Aromatherapy is also an option. The towel was hot as it should be.
Now to the personal experience, being our first couples massage TJ and Melanie really comforted us and ensured we were at ease. I went with Melanie and she asked in depth questions to customize my massage. I told her I’m a wine sales rep and can pick up anywhere from 10 to 20 cases of wine a day on top of 4-5 hours of driving between accounts. I told here where I felt the need to focus but she seemed to have a keen understanding of additional places I could use some work. She really spent time where needed while maintaining a good pace. Nothing felt rushed. I alerted her of a shin bruise I got while moving some furniture and she was careful not to exploit it.
After the massage, she went over ways to loosen up areas where I was most tense. She also pointed those areas out to me so I can get a better understanding. Amazing top to bottom experience, and we will definitely be back next time we are in Asheville! Two thumbs up over here!”
“I had a stressful day and was a little late, but instantly started to relax while TJ got started.He listened to me and focused where I asked him to, used LOTS of amazing hot towels, and stretched my arms and legs. I got a 10 massage package and look forward to returning with my husband.”
“My husband and I came in for a couples massage today. We had Amberly and TJ as our massage therapists. What can I say, WOW! Best massage of my life!!! Everyone who works here is so friendly and professional. The atmosphere is amazing and welcoming. They made us tea with honey afterwards. I love this place so much! I highly recommend Blazing Lotus, I think it’s the best massage place there is!”
“As a physical therapist and massage therapist of 37 years experience, I am very discerning with the bodywork I receive; so much of that due to the embarrassing fact that I do not create frequent opportunities to receive care, and want each infrequent one to be meaningful and effective. I chose to experience Blazing Lotus Spa and was completely welcomed into a wonderfully relaxed and nurturing environment that pleased all of the senses! Yesterday I had an amazing session with T.J. Grant which exceeded my hopes and expectations in every way! His strength is perfectly applied within the context of his sensitive hands, and apparently guided by skill acquisition and intuition. TJ discovered all of the myofascial restrictions and trigger points throughout my body, and expertly resolved them in a flow and sequence that was relaxing, enjoyable, and truly effective. His energy was palpable throughout the session, and his huge heart clearly encompassed his work! I will definitely return to TJ for my therapy and relaxation! Thank you!”
“TJ was recommended by my daughter. Got an appointment the next day. Was greeted immediately and offered water when I arrived. The business is in a house that is a beautiful older home. Comfortable waiting area. My therapist met me downstairs and escorted me to the upstairs massage room. Asked for my concerns and checked in with me several times to ask if pressure was okay. Found my new local therapist.”
“T.J. provided an unsurpassed deep tissue massage on my neck and shoulders! I had been experiencing intense headaches and was unable to stand in a natural, proper form comfortably with my shoulders down and back. T.J. worked firmly and intently – at my request – and was able to release their vice-like hold for which I am so very grateful!! It is a blessing to feel so good again!!!
T.J. also shared a few exercises to strengthen the weaker muscles and stretches to counteract the head and shoulder roll forward that comes with sitting in front of a pc. They are working!! All this AND delightful conversation! I will be back!!”
“Outstanding experience! TJ provides outstanding service. He greeted me with a warm welcome and made me feel relaxed right from the start. He has the ability to locate troubled areas as he proceeds, working through the knots and tightness. He tailors the massage to meet your needs, and I left there feeling better and years younger. At the end, he provided me with a choice of water or tea and some healing tips and resources so I can look after my own health until next time. The ladies at the desk are awesome too!! Blazing Lotus is a top-notch facility. They are a true healing house.”
“AMAZING! I fell in love with TJ today! The cat is out of the bag, I proposed! Lol.. Years of tormenting my body and not properly taking care of myself has led to terrible knots in my back! TJ made some break through on said knots and I made an appointment in 2 weeks! Thank you thank you thank you!”
“Amy and TJ were awesome! Just what we needed to start off a relaxing anniversary weekend right!”
“Have had massages with several different therapists and they really know what they are doing, plus they put their heart into it. T.J. gives a great deep tissue massage if you have areas that need special attention. Marina has teriffic ability to relax you so you will forget all your troubles. Everyone is kind and considerate and does whatever they can to assure your experience is more than you expected. The energy of Blazing Lotus is truly healing. I feel it from the moment I walk in until the moment I depart. I will continue to return.”
“My husband and I have been going here for awhile for massages and have had many different therapists who were all wonderful. My personal favorites have been T.J. and Justin. They have both worked with my complicated back issues (fusions/rods due to scoliosis) and I always walk out feeling amazing and rejuvenated. Their space is so relaxing and everyone there makes you feel welcome.”
“My husband and I got a couples massage from TJ and Meredith and they were both fantastic! They are so attentive to what you are comfortable with and where you want to or should work on. Definitely in the top massage experiences for both us. Not only did it feel amazing, they both had things for both of us to work on. Stretches or techniques to help combat the effects of the desk-work life. Great all around experience!”
“Great experience at the Blazing Lotus. We had a couples massage with Paige and TJ – Very relaxing experience, very knowledgeable massage therapists. They each worked specifically to our needs and pressure preferences. Cupping, hot stones, and hot towels were also offered free of charge with any massage, and it was worth it!Afterwards Paige and TJ met us downstairs with hot tea and water. They both had recommendations for day to day exercises to help work on posture because we both work in office settings. Highly recommend.”
“My husband and I did the couples massage for our anniversary. Neither of us had ever had a massage before. Both massage therapist were amazing. TJ was my massage therapist and was awesome! I felt amazing afterwards. Would highly recommend Blazing Lotus to anyone looking for a massage. The staff was very nice while booking the massage and while we were there!”
“Great relaxing and knot-busting massage from TJ! Super helpful tips for keeping my legs and glutes nice and loose for my trip west! Highly recommend this spot. Comfy digs and welcoming ppl.”
“My partner and I scheduled a 60 minute couples’ massage with T.J. and Paige. We both agree that we’ve never had a better massage experience anywhere else. Upon our arrival, we were greeted by the receptionist (I’ve forgotten her name) who was very easygoing and friendly and happy to answer all our questions about her experience living and working in Asheville. As we filled out the requisite paperwork, T.J. and Paige greeted us in the lobby, and asked about our individual needs. They worked hot stones, aromatherapy, hot towels, and cupping into the massage at no extra charge, and it made so much more of a difference than I was expecting. After the massage, we were offered water and hot tea, which I enjoyed quite a lot. We did a lot of browsing, trying to pick the right massage parlor, and I’m so glad we decided to go with Blazing Lotus. Highly recommended!”
“My partner (whose review is probably right beside mine) and I chose Blazing Lotus at first because of their very well designed and enticing website, and the sheer versatility of their massage work; incorporating hot stones, hot towels, essential oils, and cupping free of charge. Dollar per dollar, not only is this the best deal as a couples massage in Asheville, but puts you under the care of some of the best massage therapists we’ve ever worked with.
I cannot recommend TJ and Paige enough. They did incredible work with us that’s had lasting effects on our energy, breath, and posture. Everyone here is extremely friendly, even going so far as to wait with water for us at the bottom of the stairs after our massage was over. I cannot recommend them enough.”
“When I decided to get a massage while on vacation in Asheville, something told me Blazing Lotus was the place. Every moment of my encounter there was heavenly. They have created a beautiful ambiance in this old home and are super welcoming upon arrival. TJ was an absolutely amazing therapist. He is intuitive, patient and curious about the body and I felt so cared for during my 90-minute massage (worth it, 60 minutes just isn’t enough!). As a massage therapist myself, I can say that this was one of the best massages I have ever had. I wish TJ practiced in upstate NY!”
“The Healing House had a very tranquil setting with kind staff. I received a massage from TJ, who was very sincere in trying to help alleviate some of my problem areas in my back. I had great massage and felt so much better afterwards. Thank you. ”
“This place is amazing! They were able to get my cousin and I in at the very last minute on a cold rainy day. TJ helped me out and he was one of THE BEST massage therapists I’ve been to. I asked for a deep tissue with majority of the concentration on my shoulders/upper back. He massaged out every knot with the perfect amount of pressure for me [I like it hard ;)] and left me feeling so rejuvenated. I can’t recommend him enough!”
“I recently visited Blazing Lotus and had a massage with TJ. He was fantastic! He used traditional massage, heated stones and cupping techniques to help me achieve relaxation and muscle relief. He did a great job of administering the right amount of pressure and making sure that I was comfortable throughout the massage. If I’m in Asheville again, I will definitely go back to the Blazing Lotus Healing House!”
“My husband and I went for a couples massage for our one year wedding anniversary. Our therapists were TJ and Sommer and they were very attentive and caring. They listened to our concerns and needs and made us feel relaxed and welcomed. The staff is also very amazing and greeted us with warm smiles and offered us beverages as soon as we entered. I would highly recommend this place to anyone wanting a massage in Asheville. I will most definitely be coming back the next time I am in town.”
“My 15 year-old son and I enjoyed an afternoon massage by T.J. and Paige in adjacent rooms upstairs. Convenient walking distance from many attractions in downtown Asheville, the Blaizing Lotus Healing House is a relaxing get-away. From the friendly receptionist to the attentive massage therapists, all the staff was pleasant and helpful, doing their best to make this a fully enjoyable experience. Water prior to the massage, hot tea made from their own blends after the massage, and truffles before or after all added to the sense of being pampered. The massage therapists (T.J. and Paige) focused their arts on the areas each of us specified during a short interview immediately preceding the massage. Hot stones, cups, warm layers of towels, and various therapeutic oils added to the indulgence. Well worth the $80 per person price tag.”
“We had a couples massage with T.J Grant and Justin Hromanda and it was the best experience we’ve had. They were very professional and therapeutic. Will be back next time we are in town!”
“We got a couples massage while in town for the weekend. T.J. And Paige were our masseuses and did a fabulous job. It was very relaxing and well worth the money! They spent extra time to talk to us before and after and make us comfortable. Unlike most massages, this one included aromatherapy, hot stones, and cupping with no additional charge.”
“I booked a couples massage for my wife and I along with 30 minutes in the FIR Sauna. We had a great experience, all the staff were welcoming and kind. The place had an overall great vibe to it, Chakra flags, relaxing music, etc. We had TJ and Meredith, both were very experienced and left us feeling so relaxed. This was our first 90 minute massage as we usually do 60 minutes. I really enjoyed all the other little extras that are included with the massage, the hot stones were incorporated in a very subtle but relaxing way, the warm towels and the aromatherapy was another nice touch to an overall blissful experience. My wife and I have traveled to many resorts, had several massages before and this was one of our best experiences to date. We visit Asheville a few times a year and I am certain we will be back.”
“I had a wonderful prenatal massage with Paige and my husband had an equally wonderful massage with TJ. The atmosphere was incredibly relaxing and we will certainly be coming back!”
”I had a 2 hr. massage with T. J. It was my first time visiting the Blazing Lotus. The staff was very friendly. The atmosphere, inviting and relaxed. T.J. is a pro. It’s obvious that he takes his role seriously. His knowledge, experience, and skill reflect that commitment. He used several different techniques—Swedish, hot stones, reflexology, etc.—all of which were amazing. I came in feeling very tense from a stint of long work weeks and travel. I left ready for the holidays and in a relaxed state of mind and body. I will definitely be back.”
“Amazing! I had TJ, best massage ever. Can’t wait to go back. The house is very peaceful, they did a great job making it a beautiful, calm place for healing.”
“Omg – easily one of the best massages I’ve ever had in my life. TJ knew what he was doing – wow. He was so intentional about working out the knots where I had stress but also making it such a relaxing experience. I could have cried when it was over. I’m so sad we are only here for the weekend or I would be back asap. My husband had Justin and he was equally as awesome. Ah-Mazing!!!”
“My experience at Blazing Lotus was wonderful. Everyone there was very friendly and made every effort to make me as comfortable as possible. T.J provided me with an excellent massage and it was evident that he is very skilled in a healing touch. The use of hot stones/towels and aroma therapy just enhanced my experience. I would definitely recommend them.”
“Amazing experience! Our therapists, Sommer and T.J. were so attentive. This was our first time here and we plan to go back! We felt comfortable and relaxed during our couple’s massage and so much lighter once we left.”
“This place has a lot of good, genuine intention behind it and all the staff I’ve encountered are great. Amber at the front desk is really sweet and Ayana, TJ, and Meredith have all given great massages.”
“Relaxing and wonderful. Thank you Blazing Lotus for making my girls vacation amazing today. TJ and Marina were wonderful. I highly recommend the 2 hour massage. (Because, why not!)
“Asheville should be called “Blazing Asheville.” My husband and I think that Asheville should be called “Blazing Asheville” simply because this healing house made our trip worth while. Yes, we had great food, music, and some dancing but when we left the Healing House we felt genuinely restored back to health. We felt closer as a couple and were able to leave town with assurance that things “are” okay. We’d recommend a couples massage with T.J. and Meredith. They intuitively paid attention to all of our needs and were able to place us at ease, not to mention did some great deep work when needed. Thank you guys, thank you. I will spread the word for sure.”
“This was our first time in Asheville and I wanted to surprise my husband with a re-do of our honeymoon (which was awful).
From the minute we walked in the door, everyone was so wonderful. We were greeted with a friendly face and conversation.
We had Paige and T.J. They were seriously amazing. They were both very easy to talk to and friendly. With it being my husbands first time, Paige was awesome with him. T.J is definitely the best masseuse I’ve came across. Hopefully we can make this an often trip! LOVED our visit!”
