Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Welcome to East Asheville, Brown Mountain Bodywork! Recommended by a friend, I found the website easy to use. With access from two streets, an ample parking lot, I appreciated the peaceful atmosphere inside. All this followed by a great massage.

    Great new space!

  • Zack and Amber have created a wonderful relaxation haven!

    Thank you Zach for taking the time to listen and providing the relief I needed. I had lost hope that I would be able to find someone who could really help and I’m so grateful I found you! Thanks, Hélène ????

  • I don't like being required to make comments. See below for all my positive feedback.

    The massage room is spacious and relaxing.

  • Very professional, great massage, always on time. Highly recommend Brown Mountain Bodywork.

    Zach is amazing. He listened and applied his knowledge and expertise to help me with my neck and tennis elbow. His methods were just right to get me back to my preferred sweaty self. Total relaxation that is just what this "athlete" needs.

  • There was nothing not to like. Zach has the gift of massage and listening. I was referred by my physician for a painful muscle in my upper back--after two sessions, the problem was alleviated. I continued a couple more times because I wanted to make sure the area was healed AND because I liked it so much! Heaven is the word. As far as the ambiance goes, Zach is not an interior decorator and leans on tans, sparsely male, but the music was soothing and all was comfortable and organized well.

    Zack listened to my concerned and worked with me to address them. His treatment helped me a great deal.

I always have a great experience with Zach. He has a thorough understanding of anatomy and trigger point therapy and I leave feeling much better all around.
by Hélène on Nov 11
Beautiful facility, quiet, clean, Zach took his time explaining the treatment as this was very different from what I had experienced in the past. Incredibly effective for someone who suffers from chronic pain as I have for years. Zach is very knowledgeable and caring, which makes him an amazing therapist.
by Glenda on Sep 25
Zach creates an atmosphere that is very professional and relaxing. I left feeling that all tension had left my body. I would definitely recommend Zach to others.
by Tray on Aug 23
I have been looking for an Asheville massage therapist who can do a true deep tissue massage for years and finally found Zach! Zach is knowledgeable, professional and focuses on the areas in need. He has been helping my tennis elbow, and all the related tight muscles from playing tennis and being active. Thanks for keeping me going Zach!
by BRITTANY on Jul 14
I liked it all! I felt like a cat curled up next to a fire by the end of the treatment....no more tension or tightness in the targeted areas. We are hard on our bodies during work and play. I will continue to see Zach for regular visit to keep my body happy.
by Peggy on Jun 30
I disliked nothing and liked the experience the four times I went. I will return when/if needed. Recommend highly without reservation.

I feel lucky to have a good massage therapist right in the neighborhood! Amber is very nice, professional, and besides giving a wonderful massage, she's willing to share helpful information. While I'm not equipped to rate her skill level, I'm guessing it's at least 4-stars, if not 5.
by Amanda on Nov 18
Amber is great! She puts a lot of care into her massages and makes sure you are comfortable. I have chronic hip and IT band issues, and Amber's massages help the healing process. I left feeling on cloud nine!
by Anonymous on Jul 23
Amber is wonderful! She truly listens and customizes the massage for your specific needs. I always feel that she is 'present' during the massage and is able to seek out problem areas that need attention. I am very happy with my experiences with Amber and would highly recommend her!
by Jessica on Dec 22
I can't wait to return!
by Jenny on Dec 12
This was my first experience with hot stones, and I LOVED the combo of the oils Amber used and the heat of the stones. Amber was very thorough and very kind-- I relaxed to the point of half sleeping. I will definitely be back for more and am considering monthly massages for my fatigued muscles.
by Reuben on Nov 21
Amber's Himalayan Salt Stone Massage is really incredible! She listens to your current aches and pains and relieves them with a great massage. I highly recommend this massage.
by Jan on Nov 17
Amber is fabulous. She connects easily with me and offers support for physical discomforts I identify as well as ones she discovers. Her massage skills stretch and work my painful areas but also provide comfort. I especially love the warm salt rubs... Nothing like it!
by SeDonna on Oct 13
Amber really knows what she's doing. My back feels amazing. She was able to relieve all the tension in my muscles and I have mobility I didn't have before.
by Frenchie on Aug 13
She did an excellent job. I would recommend her to anyone. Frenchie Richards
