About
Wake Foot Sanctuary is located in the Historic Grove Arcade in downtown Asheville and provides locals and visitors alike a mini retreat from sole to soul. Wake specializes in luxurious foot soaks served in hand-hammered copper bowls as guests relax on soft chairs. The soaks are prepared with care and provide a fragrant, rejuvenating, and moisturizing experience. Soaks are the base service and cost $30 for the 45-minute experience. Massage add-ons are available in 20 or 40 minutes increments for three different body areas: head, neck, & shoulders, foot & lower leg, and hand & lower arm. Massage add-ons are added to the soak coast and start at $36 and range to $72. 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 as availability is limited. Walk-ins welcome when space is available.

We really enjoyed this! We booked the day dreamer package including massage and the foot soak. We went with another couple and was very relaxing! Would book again!

Smitten with this place. Saw it online and knew I had a make a birthday appointment for my sister and I.

From the time you walk in until the time you leave it's pure Bliss. You're greeted with slippers, service, and food menu.

We chose different soaks with the add on leg massage and they were both amazing. We had Kelsey and she was the best at what she does. I am on the shorter side and it was a bit hard to hang legs over the soaking tub. Had the chair been a smidge higher that would have felt better but overall super fabulous.

We also ordered the pot of blackberry tea which was delicious.

If I had to complain about anything it's that they want you to wear your mask in between sips which is a bit much. You're not sitting near anyone and taking it up and down is not really relaxing. That would be the only thing is change.

Highly recommend booking a service!

Polite and professional staff. Clean facility. Relaxing atmosphere. Great to do after a long walking day. Nice options to chillax with.
Comfortable chairs. Nice soak. Good massages.
Few items to address personally…more massage time and less relax time…Also wonderful hot tea but the stone cups were SO hot my wife’s fingers are literally blistered. 😬 Stone cups absorb all that heat fast and even leaving space still couldn’t pick up till your a while later.

Wake canceled our foot soak and massage an hour and a half prior to the appointment time on a Sunday. This was scheduled for our anniversary and we are from out of town, leaving us with no ability to use another business before our departure. Apparently one of the masseuses didn’t show up, so they offered free hot tea if we come back in the future. Wow…

What an amazing surprise for my 60th birthday celebration! My sisters put together a girls trip with a Spa treatment at Wake and it was lovely. Head and shoulders with leg and feet massage in a relaxing atmosphere. I would recommend taking a trip here if you live or are visiting Asheville. I know I will be back on my next trip to Asheville.

I have been 3 times for the date night package and love, love, love it!! It is so nice to be pampered. The ladies make you feel so relaxed. I can't wait to go back. I took my 81 year old mom for her birthday in June and she loved it as well.

This is a beautiful experience. From the relaxing foot bath aromas to the soothing massage to the peaceful atmosphere, Wake Foot Sanctuary was one of the best moments of my trip to Asheville!

My husband and I enjoyed our foot soak and shoulder/ neck message. The staff member who greeted us was very professional and kind. Sara, the staff member who gave us our foot soaks and massages was wonderful too. She was professional and talented with the message. The problem was with 2 other guests who were also getting soaks and the staff member assisting them. The 3 of them kept up a constant dialogue of chatter and giggling for at least 45 minutes that really ruined the tranquility and relaxation that we were hoping for as we were all in the same room for our treatments. This was my husbands’ first experience with any kind of message type activity. I was really hoping he would like it so we could do this again together. I doubt I could get him to go back …especially since the other guests were what he called “ men bashing.” Somethings that might have helped… 1. A sign asking guests to refrain from chatting when other guests are present, 2. Separate treatment rooms, 3. A supervisor reminding the staff member to not chat so much with her guest to the point it disturbed the other guests.
