Jenna specializes in deep therapeutic massages. She believes that it is important to perform long, full, slow strokes in order to activate the parasympathetic nervous system. Once the body is relaxed the deep work can begin! She is also trained in Ashiatsu. Ashiatsu is a style of massage where the therapist is on the table using their feet and all of their body weight to massage, it can be up to three times deeper than regular hand massage. She has a passion for learning and wants to continue to keep learning new modalities and styles!

Lindsey Chabot

Anya DeWilde
Anya DeWilde Massage

I'm a good person to come to if you need your body to open up and allow spaciousness. I have a studio spaces in North Asheville and an Asheville native. I'm consistent in multiple modalities within my massage. I do a mixture of deep tissue work, integrative, and energetic work in my sessions. Each session is different with each person. Really attuning and listening to their bodies, from there adjusting my techniques and of course their input of what they need. My most important technique is just being present.
