Knowledge and experience go way beyond massage

I have had two massages now with Blossom and Be. One with Avyanna when I had what felt like a pinched nerve in my neck. Her deep and intuitive work in my neck was amazing. The pressure was perfect, therapeutic but also allowed me to relax when I was in so much pain. Her knowledge and experience go way beyond massage and I felt incredibly safe. Loved the ambiance of the room! Had a second massage this week with Phoenix and was experiencing tight pectoral muscles since last November. Sometimes painful but a constant tightness and limiting my activities. Again, the ambiance of this place is delightful, I wanted to just stay. I had tea and slipped my feet into a portable foot acupuncture/massage device while I waited. His work was thorough and deep with attention to my tight muscles and I am so happy to say that it has been three days and the tightness is still gone! I have had a massage once a month since November and so far, no one has been able to release the tension. Thank you, Phoenix, I'll be back...and I recommend an hour and a half! You won't regret it.

Avyanna at Blossom and Be is SO amazing!

Avyanna at Blossom and Be is SO amazing! I have been to many massages, but nothing was like this experience. From the very beginning of the massage, it felt like her hands were communicating directly with my whole being. Not just using her hands to push and pull muscles and tissue around to make it better, but actually speaking and listening to what my body was needing to be healed. Avyanna is a true healer; empathic and caring, and incredibly talented as a massage therapist! Her hands are magic. I can't wait to go see her again, I highly recommend Blossom and Be!

Each session saves my life

Phoenix is a master at helping me slow down what’s happening inside me, so that I can hold and examine each piece, with his safe and comforting presence to guide me. This way I come to understand it, accept it, love it, and integrate it into a more whole, more peaceful me. Each session saves my life. I only spring for them when I’m in the spiritual ER, but I’m going to manifest more regular check-ups with this artful healer.

The most rejuvenating experience I’ve had in years

If you’re looking for a relaxing retreat, I highly recommend Blossom and Be! The setting is peaceful, the space is gorrrrgeous, and the hosts – Avyanna and Phoenix - were wonderfully attentive but also gave me lots of space. The retreat feels far removed from any towns/cities, yet it is just a 2 minute drive from downtown Black Mountain. I opted to get an on-site massage from Avyanna during my stay and it was everything I could have asked for – it certainly contributed to the restorative nature of my visit! I can honestly say that my time spent at Blossom and Be was the most rejuvenating experience I’ve had in years!

Phoenix has been an amazing life coach

Phoenix has been an amazing life coach and brings to the table many years of very mindful learning. My wife and I have had our personal relationship with each other transformed through this work and we have also been able to utilize phoenix’s experience to help us manage some of our business as well. I greatly appreciate his loving compassion and guidance and wholeheartedly recommend him.

I’ll be forever grateful for our time together

Phoenix has a commitment to “Real” wellness. His diverse background in anatomical body functions combined with his expertise and experience in human development gives him a rich pool of resources to draw upon when addressing a client’s needs; seeing each of us as individuals. His willingness to keep learning and to stay current in the field of “True” wholeness makes him a unique treasure for the Asheville area. As a client who presented to him in deep physical distress and as a woman with my own extensive body Wisdom, it was Phoenix’s ability to listen and collaborate with me on every visit that seemed the greatest gift of all. He gave careful thought and consideration to the information I would bring forth and then united it with his extra-large ‘tool-box’ to unwind old patterns, free the old injuries, and evolve me in a new strength as we continued to move forward. Together, over the course of a year, we gave me a whole new physical body to play life from ...... at 60! Phoenix is a strong, compassionate, positive practitioner who walks his talk. He’s a warm, knowledgeable, honest coach and I’ll be forever grateful for our time together.

Their space is serene and holds the upmost clarity of healing energy

Avyanna and Phoenix gave my husband and I amazing massages when we were visiting Asheville. Their space is serene and holds the upmost clarity of healing energy. It's palpable as soon as you walk in the door. They're warm and knowledgeable. We savored every minute of our sessions and can't wait to visit again!

High point from the day-long retreat

Our group partnered with Blossom and Be Wellness for a daylong event for professionals who are leaders in our communities. The therapists were early to set up and stayed late to make sure everyone had an opportunity to receive their care. I believe about 26 people from our group received massage from the three therapists (Phoenix, Avyanna, and Mallory) and many considered it a high point from the day-long retreat. It is our second year to partner with them in this way and hope for more to come.

I had never had this type of blended massage before and was blown away

I visited Blossom & Be wellness yesterday because of my seasonal tension in my back with allergies and to get started on a self care regime of getting regular massages. I had a 90 minute session with Avyanna. She blended Swedish & Deep tissue massage based on my needs. The entire experience was amazing. She was very thorough with explaining everything and making sure the pressure was comfortable and suitable. I had never had this type of blended massage before and was blown away. Not only did she get all my knots out, she got to the bottom of the source of my back issues from playing softball 20 years ago! I've had 2 therapists in the past ask if I was left handed (I'm not) due to the muscle mass difference on each side of my back. Come to find out, it's likely due to pitching softball in high school, and she also advised some things I can do to help with getting everything evened out so there's less stress on my back. The space is so quiet, relaxing and comfortable. I'm so happy to find a go to massage therapist and very much look forward to visiting on a regular basis. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a therapist who goes above and beyond! Thanks Avyanna!!

Phoenix is the absolute best by far

This is the absolute best place in all of Asheville for the best massage money can buy. If you have an issue and you need help, you owe it to yourself to try this place. You won't be disappointed! Phoenix is an extremely gifted, educated and professional massage Therapist. I am 45 years old and have seen at least 30 different therapists in my lifetime, and as far as deep tissue is concerned, he is the absolute best by far. I would rate the quality of his care 10 out of 10.

Phoenix has changed my life!

I have had low back pain for over ten years. Hip and pelvis pain last five years, buttock pain to the point I avoided sitting at all costs, significantly decreasing my quality of life and my ability to perform my job. I truly had no life; my pain consumed me. That was until I started seeing Phoenix, about four months ago. HE HAS CHANGED MY LIFE!!! About two weeks ago I was sitting in a meeting and suddenly realized I had been sitting all day and wasn’t hurting. I cried. This is so drastic and huge and wasn’t ever even semi-relieved by any other treatment. Phoenix has given me my life back. I am not 100 percent yet but in four months I am at least 70% better. I am confident I would be 90% if I wouldn’t have been in a car accident six weeks ago. He has made that setback bearable and not let it hinder my progress. Right before my wreck I was feeling better than I can ever remember in my adult life, at least ten years. Not only has Phoenix corrected the issues above but has corrected other significant issues I had. One with my foot (ended up being Peroneus muscle and calf tightness), compensating “injury” which likely started from my back down. It’s all connected! Secondly. he got me out of hand braces I have worn for 10 years due to overuse of my hands and typing. An orthopedic doctor saw me over a year and couldn’t correct. Injections, orthotic inserts, PT, even wore a corrective boot for a year and nothing fixed it. Phoenix did!

Avyanna had skill, intuition, and moves to make me feel glorious. I have had lots of bodywork and lots of body workers through my long years and by far I can say she is magnificent and THE best of all. Also, being in her energy restores me. So glad to have her as an addition to Asheville.

I am 50 and this was my FIRST 1- hour massage. I WILL be back.

AWESOME!! Relaxing atmosphere. Went in for couple's massage. My wife likes it gentle and said it was the best one she had received with Avyanna. I like it intense, deep-tissue, and Phoenix did not disappoint. He found at least 6 knots and really stretched out my muscles. The best part was a discomfort I was having for about 8 months at a point I had a hernia operation disappeared for the entire weekend. Once I got back to work and started my leaning over, the discomfort came back. So I now realize my discomfort is a combination of back muscle issues and scar tissue from the surgery. My Family Doctor said he thought it was reference pain, and he was correct. But Phoenix was able to open all this up in one 1-hour session, that went by fast. Oh, when we arrived, Phoenix and Avyanna had a bag of Lindt Chocolates and 3 Red Roses for my wife's birthday. She told me "nice touch". Just a wonderful experience. I am 50 and this was my FIRST 1- hour massage. I WILL be back.

Stopped my recurring plantar fasciitis

There are many therapists who can make you feel better for a while. But if you actually want to get healed you need to visit Phoenix. He put a stop to my recurring plantar fasciitis, then increased range of motion in my shoulder brought on by a dislocation decades ago. I was convinced I was developing a hernia, but Phoenix correctly diagnosed and healed me. Turns out the pain was caused by tight muscles which Phoenix was able to relax.

Avyanna is one of the best bodyworkers and people I have ever been blessed to work with. She has a heart of gold and her work leaves you feeling comforted, heard and revitalized. She holds sacred space for healing and is in tune with those that are highly sensitive. There aren’t enough good things I can say; besides that, I have worked with many workers in the Asheville area and she is the top!

Top notch from start to finish

My husband and I had our first couples massage with Avyanna and Phoenix yesterday. Top notch from start to finish! We are still talking about it. We absolutely will be back and they have our business as long as they are in business! I'm telling everyone I know!

I’ve never had an experience quite as powerful

My experience at Blossom and Be was phenomenal. I have had many pleasant massages with other skilled massage therapists in the past, but I’ve never had an experience quite as powerful as what came from my massage with Avyanna. The impact of the massage carried on far longer than just the 90 minutes I spent on the table. First, I was invited into the uber-cozy Blossom and Be lobby which was immediately calming. Avyanna was extremely professional and extended so much care and warmth towards me as we discussed my desires for the session. She took plenty of time to gain a strong understanding of what I was looking for and repeatedly emphasized that she was interested in feedback (which is always helpful for me to hear). My actual experience in the massage was nothing short of blissful. On a physical level, she was extremely strong and seemed to effortlessly maintain the high pressure that I prefer throughout the 90 minutes. She used techniques that I’d never experienced before that felt aaaamazinnnng – loosening up perpetually tense areas of my body and sending me into somewhat of a trance in the moment. I felt Avyanna’s full energetic presence throughout the entire 90-minute session. It was clear that she has a gift of strong intuition as she was finely attuned to my body and what it needed. For hours and hours after the massage, I kept expecting to “wake up” from the daze I was in, but it just wasn’t happening. For days my body felt relaxed, my heart felt so open, my conscious mind took a break from hyper-active duty, and I felt a general sense of surrender - all of which felt like signs that my mind and body were in the process of deep integration. To sum it up, Avyanna’s compassionate care, intuitive presence, and strong massage skills worked powerfully together to unlock some of the glitches in my body and mind to help me heal, integrate, and grow. The words “Blossom and Be” perfectly reflect my over-all experience!

Avyanna was incredibly warm, empathetic, and knowledgeable

I recently moved back to this area after being away at school for several years, and one of my primary concerns about moving was being able to find someone I could trust who does abdominal massage. I had been getting my belly worked on weekly for about a year prior to moving, and the work had been deeply healing after struggling for many years with post-surgical abdominal adhesions as well as inflammatory bowel problems. However, it took me a long time to find a practitioner who I trusted to let in on that intimate level -- bellies hold a lot, physically AND emotionally! Turns out, I am incredibly lucky and happened into Avyanna's office right off the bat. She was incredibly warm, empathetic, and knowledgeable. I felt very seen and understood as well as empowered to direct the session according to my physical limitations and emotional needs. I can't wait to go back for my follow up!

Sense of relief in my body I haven’t experienced in years

Asheville has many good massage therapists, yet if you want truly one of the best…Phoenix is the one! I was a massage therapist for 18-yrs and currently teach at a local massage school, and I can whole-heartedly endorse the outstanding experience of receiving bodywork from Phoenix. His presence, nurturing, precision skill and professionalism is top-notch. It was so easy to surrender into healing because of the sense of trust and safety that Phoenix provides not only in his massage techniques… but in his being. I felt healed on many levels and left with a sense of relief in my body I haven’t experienced in years. I just can’t wait to go back!

Relaxes your whole body

Had a lovely massage from Avyanna this morning and have been blissed out all day. She does a great job of finding the proper pressure level for the massage and then relaxes your whole body with long strokes. Looking forward to heading back soon!

Very professional and very helpful. After a little over a month of seeing Phoenix for work on my hip, I was back to hiking and swimming. He worked closely with my PT and was open and committed to giving me comprehensive care. Great experience all around!

My session was nothing short of amazing.

Hi Avianna, I just wanted to thank you again for our sessions yesterday.  It was such a good experience for Caroline and I am so grateful.  I appreciated the way that you treated her as you would any other client.  You asked her questions, you listened to her, you explained things to her, inquired about her likes and dislikes.  This differs from many of the experiences I have had in the past with other professionals.  Be it someone doing her hair or painting her nails – they tend to defer to the parent.  I really liked and appreciated the fact that Caroline got to take ownership of her own body and her own experience.  She got to make the decision about what felt good and communicate that to you.  It extends far beyond a massage.  That is sending her a message about her rights when it comes to her body and supports her as she strengthens her voice.  Girls her age need that.  Plus it was just a great day to spend with my little girl and treat her a bit. My session was nothing short of amazing.  I felt cared for and nurtured during the session and went home after threw on PJ’s and fell asleep on the couch at 5 for a nice nap.  You are so talented and intuitive and I thank you for sharing your gift and your presence.  I can’t wait to come back!

Took ALL of my stress away

I showed up to today’s massage stressed like nobody’s business. The hate from the last week had sent me to the edge. I was able to talk to her about my stress and sadness. THEN she took her magic hands and not only took ALL of my stress away, I even got to experience pleasure. Avyanna is a healer, that's all there is to it. Thank you Avyanna!!!

Terrific integration of myofascial and trigger point

Wow, Phoenix that was exactly what my body needed. You are a total natural. The level of intuition that can be felt through your hands is remarkable. Terrific integration of myofascial and trigger point. Your specific attention to "trouble" spots was "spot on." My favorite part of the massage was "All of it!"

Left with full range back and almost no pain

My 90-min Deep Tissue Massage was amazing! I came in with shoulder pain and limited range of motion and left with full range back and almost no pain. The next morning it was gone completely! Thank you so very much for addressing the issues I was dealing with and still fit in time to cover the full body. The pressure was great and well communicated. By the end I was super relaxed and think I was drooling…now that’s a fantastic massage!
