As a local Massage Therapist myself, I'm in need of monthly maintenance massages from someone else. I'm so happy I found Heather! I have had a massage or two each month since moving to Asheville in August 2012. Some are good, some are so-so, Heather knows what she is doing. Not only does her space feel inviting being so close to a Chiropractor she has a warm, caring, friendly appeal way about her. Totally comfortable. No stress. She listens and applies my needs and wants into the session. Heather even uses hot towels, aromatherapy, and hot stones, no extra charge. I was never a fan of hot stones, but she knows how to use them correctly and therapeutically. She incorporates stretching, and I find odd that others do not. Stretching is very important part of massage. On top off all the above she does Ashiatsu! Everyone needs to get one done, especially if you enjoy deep pressure! She is a gem! A hard to find diamond in the rough (that rough being an overly saturated city full of massage therapists). Highly recommend!
I have a bad back since college days so every now and then aside from Physical Therapy, I would pay a visit to a Spa for my Hot Stone massage. The whole process involves the masseuse or therapist placing heated stones at different points of the body specifically on the painful or tight segments of the muscles. Heat as we all know is good for tight or painful muscles because it has a relieving effect. I would recommend this place because the therapist are professional seem to truly care my needs.
Though I've only been twice, both of my experiences at Studio 3 have been great, exceeding my expectations. Seems I arrive anticipating physical relief, hasn't failed, I leave feeling mentally and physically rejuvenated. Heather is not only knowledgeable in her field, but herself and the studio are gems. I challenge anybody to doing themselves a favor and scheduling a session, you will understand where the reviews come from. Keep up the great work Heather!
