our Story

After nine years of nurturing the Maggie Valley Wellness Center, Candra led a transformative rebranding in 2023, emerging as Sundarah Wellness. With a renewed vision and continued commitment to providing holistic spa and wellness services to Western North Carolina, Sundarah Wellness has expanded its horizons with the opening of a second location in downtown Waynesville. Sundarah Wellness, now with two locations, stands as a home for those seeking a greater sense of well-being, offering services that combine ancient wisdom with modern practices in both Maggie Valley and Waynesville.

Our practitioners and instructors are highly skilled and continuously educated to better serve your unique wellness goals through massage, skincare, ayurveda, private yoga, and guided meditation. From the front desk to the treatment room, we value professionalism, attention to detail, and the art of deep listening.

At Sundarah Wellness, we aim to provide a dynamic experience that guides our clients to a place of complete surrender. It is in the deep inner stillness that you can access your pure essence of being: one that is always peaceful, always present, and where true growth and transformation may begin.
