Recently featured in VERVE magazine, four to five tons of Himalayan salt cling to the walls of The Salt Spa of Asheville's salt room, which casts a modern spin on this ancient Eastern healing remedy with radiant floor heating and a high?tech halogenerator. As the generator spills a dry saline aerosol into the air, the tranquil environs seek to fortify guests' immune systems with negative ions to combat such issues as asthma, allergies, high blood pressure, and migraines. The salt spa's staff furthers guests' relaxation with soft music and color-changing light therapy as guests recline in zero-gravity chairs, which are more comfortable than being crushed by extra-gravity chairs.
The experts at Supreme Skin?all licensed aestheticians?remove years from clients' faces with their microcurrent facials and fade cellulite and slim bodies with microcurrent body treatments. During beautifying sessions, they glide a conductive wand over faces and bodies, sending the gentle microcurrents deep into the skin.
There the microcurrents tone muscles, resulting in body contouring and the lifting of such areas as the jowels, abdomen, and buttocks. In addition to strengthening muscles, the noninvasive microcurrents promote the production of collagen and elastin, which smooth wrinkles and diminish the appearance of cellulite, stretch marks, and other skin imperfections.

During soothing aromatherapeutic massages, Demetry augments her strokes with organic coconut oils, jojoba oils, and skincare products from local companies such as De La Terre Skincare.:

During sessions, therapists switch on soft, soothing music and employ light oils and lotions to nourish the skin. Their aim is to connect clients with the right therapist to establish a great relationship and provide individualized care.
