We have visited the Salt Cave in Asheville to test the health aspects of it all, but when I heard that there was a salt room in Sevierville then I was amazed. Consequently, I knew that I had to visit as soon as possible. With flu and illnesses running rampant, the time to visit was at hand! I made an appointment for a massage and one session in the salt room at Sevierville Massage Therapy last Friday. Here is how it went…
They are open until 8:00 p.m. five days a week. This is exceptional because many people may need to go after work. Other places tend to close by 7:00.
Sevierville Massage Therapy is conveniently located around the corner and behind the Sevier County Teachers’ Credit Union, just off Dolly Parton Parkway. Here is a link to the website:
I entered the front door to find a nice check-in area with various products for sale. I didn’t have to wait. Anna immediately gave me the information form due to it being my first visit to the business. The process was quick and done in a minute.
The prices are some of the best to be found anywhere. I chose the 60 minute massage plus a session in the salt cabin. Let them know in advance if you are interested in the hot stones because they require time to heat up. Must do next time!
The room was warm, dim, cozy, and comfortable. Soft lighting, a heated massage table, and a bolster pillow to place under the legs make for a nice hour of relaxation.
Recognize these? This is the first time that I have ever seen charging cords for cell phones available in a spa room. Great idea!
I like the Himalayan salt rocks and may buy some in the future because they are supposed to offer many health benefits. My massage was divine! There were some things that were different. Anna stretched my arms, shoulders, and legs along with the massage.
Here is the salt cabin. They provide information online in regard to the salt room so I was prepared with a magazine and had socks. In fact, I got excited when I saw the antigravity chairs. These are very comfortable and are the exact same chairs that we use in the Asheville Salt Cave.
Notice the floor holds a great deal of, I assume, Himalayan salt. Anna said that they are continuing to work on the salt cabin, but I didn’t know the difference. I asked for the lights to be left on bright so I could read my new Vanity Fair magazine. I always get a blanket because it can get a little cool during the 45 minutes.
Interestingly, I started noticing effects of sitting in the salt cabin. In the Asheville Salt Cave, I don’t really notice a lot except that my hair feels softer. Also, we tend to go in summer and fall when I am not suffering from allergies, etc. I actually reached for a tissue before the end of the session. It seemed to loosen up my congestion for hours. Very good!
If you forget to bring reading material then you can read one of the books on the shelf, if you like. I noticed crayons and paper for children. The third shelf had slip on covers for feet if someone forgets socks. We use them in the Asheville Salt Cave too.
The building size is deceptive because once you walk in, you can tell that it is about twice as big as you would expect. There are at least 3 massage treatment rooms, a nice bathroom, and the salt cabin.
At the end of my time at Sevierville Salt Therapy, this motto had become true. Go to Sevierville Massage Therapy to relax, renew, and restore. It is close to downtown and many businesses on Dolly Parton Parkway. You will certainly find a new place to stay healthy this winter when you have to go out into the cold while out and about in Sevierville.
