5 great places to get a massage in Boone NC

Au revoir 2018. You were good to us. We made so much progress on the Horton Hotel and Rooftop Lounge. Last night, when the clock struck midnight, we were elated to ring in the new year: 2019 is here! A new year comes with resolutions, self reflection, and intention setting. We’re doing a lot of that. We are setting so many goals for the Horton. It’s also a time for detox and self care – our entire team could use both, ha! That got us thinking about how massage is the ultimate act of self care, and there are so many great places to get a massage in Boone, NC. Naturally, we decided to share five of our favorite places for rest, relaxation, and rejuvenation in the high country. Read on to learn more.


Health and wellness in the high country

With a local culture that supports a thriving yoga scene, celebrates getting active outside, and promotes regular Saturday morning outings to the Watauga County Farmers Market, it’s no surprise that so many wellness professionals have chosen to make the high country their permanent home. These professionals have opened an array of colorful businesses, many of which offer experiences as unique as the owners themselves. When visiting Boone, you’re guaranteed to find a place that will offer an experience tailored to your preferences. In celebration of the New Year, we’re even offering a special promotion at The Horton Hotel and Rooftop Lounge.
