Re-Opening and Covid19

Due to the impact of Covid-19 considerations for the Massage & Bodywork Industry,  The Appalachia Guild of Healing Arts studio will not reopen.


But not to worry!

Although some of our therapists have moved or have quit bodywork, 

we have therapists available to schedule right now!

Please check our "Team" section which will host our practitioners with their service & contact information.


In the spirit of keeping in touch during a time where the world never felt so apart, this website will remain to host each independent practitioner as they reinvent their service offerings and transform into the new version of their practice.

Some of us are moving away from bodywork into alternative modalities, leading guided exercises you can do at home, offering consultation and coaching, hosting continuing education classes, and planning retreats.

Our vision was to build something that could act as a hub for practitioners looking for opportunities, a platform to advocate for the Massage Industry, build relationships between mentors and students, and work to advance the merit and representation of our therapeutic arts in the Asheville Community.

The healing arts practitioners that call Asheville home are an incredible part of who we are as a city of people who have come to the mountains to meet our Healing in all of its glorious forms; from taking in the beauty and abundance of Appalachia to the thousands of therapeutic practitioners and techniques that have a home here.

Though we were looking forward to the possibility of re-opening; we have decided that working one-on-one or remotely rather than in a group studio setting is the safest option.

Practitioner information will be posted here on this page

 as each member makes their services available.

We appreciate you for seeking your healing with us.


Thank you,

for helping to fulfill our passion and purpose

locally and for the world.

My first reiki session with Wuji was deeply illuminating and I felt cleansed of toxic influences and empowered to create changes. My physical condition improved shortly after, and I awoke to feeling grounded and whole again. The space and Wujis powerful healing abilities were remarkable.
