Overview
More
Wake Foot Sanctuary is located in the Historic Grove Arcade in downtown Asheville and provides Asheville regulars and tourists alike a mini retreat for the feet, the mind, and the soul. Wake specializes in luxurious foot soaks served up to guests in hand-hammered copper bowls as they relax on soft chairs. The soaks are prepared with care and provide a fragrant, rejuvenating, and moisturizing experience. Massage add-ons are also offered across head, neck, & shoulders; foot & lower leg ; and hand & lower arm. Guests can order and sip on a personal pot of tea, enjoy some mini desserts, or just come and "be" for a while. Soaks are the base service and cost between $25-$30 for a 45 minute experience. Massage add-ons start at $30 and range to $72 and can be done in either 20 minute or 40 minute increments. The massage happens while you soak. Guests come in, remove shoes and socks to don slippers and are then escorted back into the sanctuary to begin their foot soak experience. Appointments are not required but are highly recommended, particularly for parties over 4 and weekend visits.

We enjoyed a relaxing pampered experience. The foot soaks along with head, neck & shoulder massages made for a delightful, zen experience.

This place was set up in an odd manner. Their chairs were all aligned, side by side. Your therapist came out and worked on you out in front of everyone. No privacy. Chairs were not very comfy.More

Thank you so much for your question! We do not do any nail care, polish application/removal, or exfoliation services that are generally related to pedicures. We only provide foot soaks and massage add-on services.
