Michael’s Reviews

“My husband and I came in this week for a couples massage and we were booked with Michael and Jenna. It was sooo relaxing and calming. We both felt like new people walking out of there. I’d highly recommend them both. Not to mention the whole house was adorable and had so much charm. I would absolutely love to come back again!” -“My husband and I came in this week for a couples massage and we were booked with Michael and Jenna. It was sooo relaxing and calming.

“Got the athlete’s package with Michael and the massage was so good and I was so relaxed for the first time in a while that I got lost on my way home (I’ve lived where I live for three years lol). I have very intense muscle knots that have been giving me pain for years and I feel like Michael gets in the corners where other massage therapists haven’t reached. The inside of the building is decorated beautifully too, and the front desk people are super sweet. I definitely will be back!”

“I had an incredible massage on Friday, July 28, with Michael Hernandez. I have been hiking a lot over the summer and was experiencing some lower back pain. Michael is very intuitive, being a hiker too, and he knew all the trigger points to hit to release the tension in my lower back. Michael gives his full attention to providing an outstanding deep tissue massage, and his high energy can be felt throughout the massage. I always leave there feeling completely at peace with the world and energized for my next hike. Your mind, body and soul will thank you for scheduling with Michael. The Wild Rose is an absolute gem.”

“I have been coming to Wild Rose for the past 3 years or so. Every therapist who I have worked with has been exceptional and I have always left feeling much better than when I arrived. I am very active in hiking, biking, teaching and doing Pilates and yoga so I use my body a lot every day. Over time, I have gravitated towards Michael Hernandez at Wild Rose and have determined that Michael is the best massage therapist that I have ever had. His skill set addresses every area that my body craves in a massage. He understands anatomy in motion, how to find opposition points to help fully release muscle groups and how to work the body and the massage in 3-D which is how we move. He is extremely adept at working in the shoulder area and finding strategies to release neck and spinal tension-constriction. I have definitely found my body healer as well as a beautiful space for healing. Thank you Michael and thank you Wild Rose!”

“Michael was great! Scheduled a couple’s massage with some hesitation as I have had unsatisfactory massages at 2 other places in Asheville. Michael took his time, was in tune with my muscle issues and had tips for stretching afterwards. Front staff was delightful. I’ll be back!”

“Hands down one of the best massage places I’ve found in Asheville and I’ve tried a lot. Booking is super simple online, checkin is quick and efficient, and I have never had to wait but a few minutes in the lounge prior to my appointment.

And speaking of the lounge, it’s gorgeous. All the details are perfection. It’s a great old house with lots of charm.

I usually book last minute with any staff available and the last two times have been with Michael. I do think he is one of the best massage therapists I have ever had. He’s amazing! I’ll admit it can be awkward having a male therapist but he makes you so comfortable and relaxed. I cannot recommend him or Wild Rose enough.

Stop reading already and just book your appointment!!”

“Wow! First off, the atmosphere here is so welcoming and warm. I originally booked a massage with Davida because after reading her description, I felt she would be a great MT for me. The day of, I got a call saying she would be out sick and that Michael will be there at that time and could fulfill my appointment or I could reschedule. I’ll be honest, originally I was only interested in getting a massage from a woman & I didn’t think I’d be comfortable getting a massage from a man at this time with all the things I was going through, but I had remembered reading reviews saying he was wonderful and something in me decided that I’d go for it. And wonderful he was! Michael was very respectful, kind and on top of it all, a great massage therapist! He asked me multiple times about the pressure, which I highly appreciated because sometimes I find it hard to speak up. The massage room was decorated beautifully and felt so peaceful to be in. I booked an infrared sauna session for after my massage, and after both appointments and a quick shower, I felt like I was coming out of a portal into a new, calm, relaxed state. This place really is a healing house!
I felt the need to share my whole story because if you’re like me and maybe feel uncomfortable with the idea of getting a massage from the opposite sex for whatever reason, I want to assure you that Michael is an incredible MT and I felt very safe, relaxed and respected while receiving a massage from him! Big thanks to Michael, the young woman at the front desk (can’t remember her name!) and the owners of Wild Rose! My experience here was truly wonderful and healing.”

“Amazing. Best message of our life. I had Michael and my wife Zosia. We agree they both were fantastic.”

“Well managed with a great staff. Highly recommend 1.5 hrs with Michael Hernandez.” 

Henry D.

“My wife and I scheduled a couples massage right before Christmas. The atmosphere is very pleasing and our masseur and masseuse Michael and Willow were amazing, personable, chatty and friendly. We visit Asheville once or twice a year and plan on returning to Wild Rose each time! A great experience.” 

Ralph I.

“My sister and I booked 1 hour integrative massages for a girls day and were more than impressed. We love the aesthetic of the building and decor, everyone was very kind, and the massages were some of the best we’ve ever had. Michael targeted areas on my body that I did not know I needed but felt instant relief. We joked that we would be coming back to Asheville just for the massages, but now we’re actually planning another trip because of how wonderful our experience was. Worth every dollar. Thank you all!” 

Emmie T.

“My husband and I had a couples massage while vacationing in Asheville. Michael and Davida were attentive and professional. They listened to our needs. The room itself was warm and calming. It was the best massage experience we ever had. I highly recommend the Wild Rose Healing House!!” 

Therese D.

“Absolutely amazing 🤩 me and my best friend did a couple massage & Micheal and TJ were very professional and great. It was my first one so I was nervous and it was a great experience….would highly recommend this place & will be returning soon. 5 star service!”
