Asheville Area Wellness Guide 

We believe that our health, mind, body, and spirit, affect all aspects of our lives. That when we have those things in alignment, we can feel better about other choices like our financial health. Now that we’re into 2020, we wanted to share with you our Asheville Area Wellness Guide picks for healthy activities, holistic healthcare providers, mental health resources, and more.

Sunflower Diner

Are you looking for a great vegan restaurant to check out for breakfast or lunch? Sunflower Diner recently opened in West Asheville and boasts some amazing vegan food that will nourish everyone, even the meat eaters in your life.

Not only is their mission to produce healthy comfort food for diners, they also want to pay special attention to the environmental impact that a plant-based diet has on the community.

Earth Fare

This local market has expanded throughout the country, but it all started right here in Asheville. The chain refers to itself as a “health and wellness supermarket,” that focuses on local foods. If you’re looking for something specific, there’s a good chance Earth Fare will have it, even if the other big chains don’t.

The OG Earth Fare is on Westgate Parkway. Or, if you’re south of the city, you can visit the Earth Fare location on Hendersonville Road.

Asheville Community Yoga

It’s not a secret that yoga is pervasive throughout the Asheville area. So many people are yoga instructors, and that’s a great thing. It means there are yoga resources available for everyone at all skill levels and all price points. A stand out among these is Asheville Community Yoga.

Asheville Community Yoga is a nonprofit center that offers donation-based yoga along with tons of other amazing healthy services. They also have mindfulness programs and meditation classes and even offer special yoga classes for children and seniors. Not only will you feel good physically, but you know that your donation helps the center offer programs to the entire Asheville community through your participation.

Underground Fitness

Of course, you may want to work up a pretty major sweat when you exercise and there are plenty of gyms to check out. One we want to highlight is Underground Fitness. Located in the South Slope near many of the city’s breweries, you can visit this convenient high-intensity workout space and do good in the community.

Every two months, Underground Fitness donates to a local charity or non-profit based on member feedback.

Asheville Salt Caves

Do you want something way more low-key than high-intensity fitness? If so, you may want to visit the Asheville Salt Caves. The concept is simple. Relax in solitude or community surrounded by pink salt in what they describe as the “microclimate” of a salt mine.

The Salt Caves also offers couples massages, kids quiet time, sound healing concerts, yoga nidra guided meditation.

Sona Clinic

There may be occasions in your life where you need more traditional health care. If so, we suggest checking out Sona Clinic on Fairview Road in East Asheville. It’s a walk-in clinic that can handle immediate care for things like colds and the flu and any number of complaints that might not warrant an emergency room visit.

Sona Clinic also has its own in-house pharmacy, which makes the entire visit very convenient. They can work with you based on your insurance coverage but also have set self-pay rates for those without insurance to help get medical care.

One Love Chiropractic

We also love chiropractic medicine and, specifically, One Love in North Asheville. The clinic is established for patients of all ages. They also specialize in prenatal adjustments and can help patients experiencing discomfort from sports injuries.

If you’re considering a holistic approach to health and wellness for your entire family, a visit to One Love might be in order.

Ebb and Flow Massage

Sometimes, pampering yourself with a great massage is just what the doctor ordered. There are also plenty of other reasons to consider massage; it can help with anxiety, muscle pain, blood flow, and so much more.

In West Asheville, we’re lucky to have one of the best massage places in town. They offer a menu of services that includes everything from deep tissue to chair massages all at very reasonable rates. There is also a tea room where you can enjoy relaxing teas from Asheville Tea Company while you wait.

Stillpoint Wellness

Of course, Asheville also has several more alternative therapies available. One you might not have considered before is salt water floatation. This sensory deprivation experience will give you an amazing sense of calm and total relaxation.

Also there, you can experience Esalen Massage. A therapy developed in California, this full body massage works with long, flowing strokes designed to open up the energies of your body and work with your natural experience.

OM Sanctuary

If what you want is to get away from it all, Asheville has that for you, too. OM Sanctuary is a holistic retreat center that provides tools to integrate throughout your life even when you return home. They have various retreats and programs that integrate mindful practices, sustainable living, and transformational arts and is one of our favorite picks for Asheville Area Wellness Guide .

OM stands for Oshun Mountain, symbolizing renewal and strength. You can participate in presenter-led educational experiences, special events like festivals and concerts, sacred ceremonies, and personalized healthy lifestyle programs.

These are just a few of the things you’ll find throughout Asheville to work on various aspects of your own health and wellness. In a city that’s long been associated with holistic health, we’re grateful to have such a huge network of providers and practitioners. We’d love to hear from you about our Asheville Area Wellness Guide. What resources do you rely on in Asheville?
