Blackberry Farm’s approach to spa and wellness is rooted in a philosophy of balance and the body’s connection with nature. Surrounded by the Smoky Mountains and deep green forests, The Wellhouse spa program embraces the balance of the seasons and locally sourced ingredients to renew, transform and refresh the body.

“The Wellhouse reflects our unique Smoky Mountain perspective and a deep commitment to natural balance,” said Proprietor Sam Beall. “It is an inspiring place for renewal and rebuilding designed to encourage the lasting pursuit of a healthy, fulfilling life.”

Registered guests of Blackberry Farm will have full access to the wellness and spa menu. Included below is a sample of some of the custom treatments that guests will be able to experience.

Sample Spa Treatments include:

The Wellhouse Soothe is a custom Blackberry Farm massage utilizing a combination of classic Swedish techniques and gentle stretches to relieve muscle tension and stress.

Healing Herbs & Flowers allows guests to choose to renew, detox or rest muscles with a healing massage using potent blends of essential oils. Fresh herbs and flowers are steeped in warm water and applied to the body creating a deeper state of relaxation while regenerating and repairing tissues.

Smoky Mountain Mist Skin Glow is a blend of pomegranate seed, orange peel powder and essential oils that exfoliates and conditions the skin while relaxing in a private steam bath. A full-body massage with nutrient-rich body butter follows, making this the ideal choice for relaxation, anti-aging, and special occasions.

The Blackberry Man is an exclusive spa menu dedicated to every man’s-man featuring relaxing, therapeutic, feel-good services like the Muscle Melt, High-Adventure Foot Restoration and the Saving Face facial. No girly stuff here!

Sample Wellness Activities include:

Private Juicing Sessions teach the benefits of juicing and help guests develop a favorite recipe with a Wellness coach.

Group Classes include Zumba, Dance, Barre, Pilates Mat, Stretch & Release and Aquafit.

Deep Healing Woods Experiences: Rooted in nature and proven by science, Blackberry Farm’s Deep Healing Woods offers one-of-a-kind experiences with established psychological and physiological benefits.

Earthfit Endurance Hike is a high-intensity workout ideal for any fitness level. A pre-workout stretching session warms the muscles up for a fast-paced hike, which encourages cardiovascular strength and endurance. At the conclusion of the hike, guests are led in a guided stretch and meditation to improve recovery and mental restoration.

Deep Healing Woods Yoga is practiced in the great outdoors and evokes a greater sense of connecting with the universe. Enjoy the breeze of the Smoky Mountains and warmth of the sun to enrich your sense of harmony, timelessness and union with Mother Nature.
