“Best Place in Asheville to get a Thai Massage”

– Alex Z.


“Carrie has been my massage therapist for almost a year now and I must say, she truly has a gift. She is able to feel right where the pain is and help you work through it. Every massage is different, as it should be, working on specific areas that are issues that you may not have even known about. This is not a spa massage where the “therapist” has a sequence that they are running through. This is a massage by someone who truly knows the human body but more importantly, knows how to read it. I have had massages all over the world (honestly, about 10 different countries), and none come close to the experience I get when I get a massage from Carrie. I trust her completely with all aspects of massage and highly recommend her. As a medical professional, I also refer patients to her for bodywork needs. That is how much I trust her abilities! You won’t be disappointed!”

“I came to Melissa with a lot of pain and a body full of inflammation due to Rheumatoid Arthritis and Fibromyalsia. I’ve gone to a lot of massage therapists in the last 20 years in several states. I have nothing bad to say about them, but I think Melissa understood my condition better than any others have. In the past, (with other therapists) massages that were intense felt wonderful at the time but within a day would cause my condition to flare up and worsen. I’ve only done one massage with Melissa at this point, but she seems to understand inflammation, RA & Fibro more than anyone else I have gone to and she seemed to have just the PERFECT TOUCH. Thank you. I look forward to coming back.”

“Michael Sitzer is truly an advanced practitioner of Thai massage. Being a massage therapist myself for 10 years, I am a fairly discerning consumer of different types of massage therapy, and I can say that Michael gives the best Thai massage I have ever experienced. He’s sensitive to my need for pressure and can sense the “end point” in each stretch very well. His calm and caring presence also help to set the right tone for each session.”
