Relax & Unwind With Us

Enjoy Our New Treatments

We are an unpretentious and unique destination spa nestled on a mountainside minutes from the vibrancy of downtown Asheville. Along with traditional Japanese bathing and soaking, in completely private outdoor salt tubs, guests enjoy spa-style showers, first-class massage therapy, nature setting and sounds, locally sourced spa products – including CBD salves, local, handcrafted signature soaps, apparel, totes and more. Guests don a Japanese Yukata (cotton robe) and sandals before retiring to their private hot tub overlooking the National Forest.

Treetop Sauna

Enjoy Shoji’s newest hot box, a sophisticated 20-minute sauna experience for deep detox and rehabilitation. After sweating out toxins, refresh on the outside Treetop deck for another 20 minutes of renewal. This medical sauna offers a full spectrum of wavelengths: near, mid, and far infrared. A full spectrum heater is important because each spectrum of infrared waves provides different levels of skin penetration and light therapy. Our Sauna is created with Natural Red Cedar for its medicinal and structural qualities. Natural Red Cedar is also known for its astringent properties, meaning it helps cleanse your skin, which enhances the already powerful detoxification benefits. When you step into our Natural Red Cedar sauna you will feel and smell the powerful natural wood aromas, leaving your skin feeling tightened and refreshed.

An advantage of our Rapid Internal Heating System is that it can increase your endurance and strengthen your immune system. While other saunas may take 10 – 15 minutes to work up a sweat, when you step into our sauna, you will begin to sweat almost immediately. A rapidly heating sauna simulates the effect of working out because it increases your internal body temperature at a similar rate. Not only does this increase your heat tolerance, which leads to improved athletic performance, it also stimulates your immune system, which can make it better at fighting off infections and disease. Complete your detoxification ritual with our Senjo Exfoliation for maximum benefits.

The Savasana Room

Our Savasana Room is where you are treated to a deep, whole body experience from natural therapies. The perfect, restful conclusion to a sequence of services with us. Rest and repose on tatami mats that deliver “far-infrared” heat deep into the body to help relieve stiffness and joint pain all while easing you into a deeper state of relaxation. The embedded gem stones emit negative ions providing an additional layer of meditation and calm. Weighted blankets, neck and knee bolsters, meditation chairs and more all work together to create that deep state of rest and renewal.

Who says you shouldn't have it all?

Rich cocoa, sake, Japanese beer or maybe a bottle of Vinho Verde with just a hint of effervescence to celebrate the holidays, life, and the joy of soaking in a private salt tub in the woods.

Shinrin Yoku

Special Group Experience in The Sanctuary

We all know how good being in nature can make us feel. The sounds of the forest, the scent of the trees, the fresh, clean air – being in nature can restore our mood and rejuvenate us. Shinrin Yoku (Forest Bathing) is our signature group experience for up to 15 guests. Bathe in the forest atmosphere and connect with your senses for a unique and memorable special event.

Senjo Exfoliation

This post-soak, outdoor salt self-scrub with deliciously abrasive Korean scrub mittens will give you that full-body glow! What better time to exfoliate you and your partner than after skin already softened by the salt hydrotherapy tub? Feel refreshed and invigorated in the soft mountain air.
