Leading Massage Franchise Partners with National Non-Profit NAMI, Pledges a $100,000 Fundraising Goal for 2024

SAN ANTONIO — As one in five U.S. adults live with a mental illness, Massage Heights has announced its partnership with the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) to help create more awareness on the importance of this growing matter. Throughout the month of July, the leading massage and wellness franchise will be holding a giveback initiative, ‘Rejuvenate with Purpose,’ at Retreats across the nation to raise funds for those in need of support or access to mental health resources. Additionally, the brand has set a goal of raising a total of $100,000 by year-end.

From July 1 through July 31, participating Massage Heights Retreats will donate $1 for every completed massage or facial service to NAMI, the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness. ‘Rejuvenate with Purpose,’ emphasizes the natural connection between massage therapy and mental health. Guests can also choose to make a donation when checking out or gift a donation directly on the Massage Heights fundraising page.

NAMI’s mission is to provide advocacy, education, support and public awareness so that all individuals and families affected by mental illness can build better lives – and Massage Heights hopes that its employees and guests will start to make this mission apart of their daily lives.

As part of its Culture of Care, Massage Heights’s partnership with NAMI champions mental health awareness inside Retreats to support each team member. This further demonstrates Massage Heights’s commitment to creating a supportive environment that prioritizes mental well-being and reduces stigma.

“Mental health is a core component of one’s overall wellness, and I hope that through this partnership with NAMI we are able to further educate and create more awareness on what resources and support options are available to those who need it,” said Shane Evans, Co-Founder and CEO of Massage Heights. “I’m proud that this initiative gives us an even greater opportunity to create a workplace where employees feel valued and supported, and in return, we can offer the same support to the communities we serve through personalized wellness services.”

Founded on passion and an authentic belief that the health and wellness benefits of high-quality massages and facials should be accessible to everyone, Massage Heights continues to live out its desire to elevate the communities it serves.

Massage Heights Continues Expansion in Home State, New Multi-Unit Agreement to Bring Two Locations to Texas

2024-04-16T23:57:45-04:00April 16th, 2024|Tags: , , , , , , , |

Husband-Wife Duo Joins Leading Massage Franchise with Plans to Open Two Locations in the Dallas-Fort Worth Area

DALLAS-FORT WORTH, Texas — Originally founded in Texas, leading massage and wellness franchise, Massage Heights, inks a multi-unit agreement to continue expanding in their home state. The two new locations will provide an elevated experience to those in the Dallas-Fort Worth region who are seeking personalized wellness treatment options.  As consumer’s interest in wellness services continue to rise, prospective franchisees are looking to stake their claim within the Massage Heights franchise opportunity.

Behind the signed agreement are first-time franchisees and recent first-time parents, Russell and Norelia Rogers. Following his service in the Air Force, Russell went on to obtain an MBA from Texas Christian University where he built upon the skillset he developed throughout his military experience. Nori is a dedicated registered nurse who holds a deep passion for wellness and serving others, and always desired to share it beyond the walls of the dialysis center she works in. As the duo began to look for a business opportunity they could do together, they crossed paths with Massage Heights and knew it was the perfect fit.

The couple began their wellness journey years ago by visiting a local spa, and they quickly turned into recurring customers. The benefits the two reaped from massage therapy were so lifechanging that Nori began encouraging it in her patients’ healthcare routines. The changes they’ve experienced themselves and witnessed in others became a leading factor in their new business venture.

“My wife and I’s first-hand experience with the impact massage therapy can have on one’s mental and physical health aligns seamlessly in the mission Massage Heights holds to improve the lives of others through various wellness practices,” says Russell. “This is one of the many reasons we’re excited to bring an oasis to various communities across the Dallas-Fort Worth area where an elevated wellness experience is made accessible for individuals to incorporate in their everyday lives.”

Massage Heights continues to prioritize innovation with its service and retail offerings to meet the changing needs of consumers. As these efforts help drive franchisee profitability, advances in marketing, strong unit economics, and proprietary technology have also contributed to a high-performing sales year.

The International Franchise Association (IFA) reported that service-based industries will lead overall franchise expansion, with beauty, fitness, health and wellness concepts ranking on the top of this list. With the industry primed for increased growth, Massage Heights has identified key target growth markets and has prime territories available nationwide.

“We’re always ecstatic to witness growth especially when it’s within our home state, where we first opened our doors,” says Shane Evans, Co-Founder and CEO of Massage Heights. “Establishing a strong connection within the communities that we expand in is immensely important to our brand’s mission. We have full confidence Russell and Nori are ideal franchise partners who will utilize their backgrounds and passion for massage therapy to make a difference in the lives of those in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.”

Leading Massage Franchise Responds to High Demand for its Services, Grows Footprint with Husband-Wife Duo

LAS VEGAS — With the U.S. wellness industry valued at $1.8 trillion, leading massage and wellness franchise Massage Heights brings continued growth to Las Vegas with a signed franchise agreement. Further growing its footprint in Nevada, the new Retreat will provide massage and skin therapy to those seeking personalized wellness treatments outside of the tourist-centric Vegas Strip. As consumers’ interest in wellness services continue to rise, prospective franchisees are looking to stake their claim within the Massage Heights franchise opportunity.

Behind the new agreement is husband-wife duo, James and Eshelle Manion. Originally from Idaho, the couple relocated to Las Vegas six years ago. After a close family member used massage therapy to manage her Parkinson’s and dementia symptoms, the Manions were inspired to have their next venture be within the wellness industry. In finding Massage Heights and falling in love with the concept, the entrepreneurial duo decided to sign their agreement in honor of the aunt who encouraged this new journey.

Combining Eshelle’s marketing and sales background, and her experience as a manager of another massage concept, with James’ finance and management expertise, the Manions bring a wealth of knowledge with them to Massage Heights. Becoming a true family business, the Manions’ son will also be working in the retreat to spearhead social media and IT operations.

“James and I have experienced first-hand a need for more accessible massage concepts in the area, and we are here to deliver,” said Eshelle. “In opening our Massage Heights, we hope to become more engrained in the community and give back to Parkinson’s organizations. We are excited to provide the Las Vegas area a solution to the high demand for therapeutic massage and skincare services through a brand with a proven business model.”

Massage Heights continues to prioritize innovation with its service and retail offerings to meet the changing needs of consumers. As these efforts help drive franchisee profitability, advances in marketing, strong unit economics, and proprietary technology have also contributed to a high-performing sales year.

The International Franchise Association (IFA) reported that service-based industries will lead overall franchise expansion, with beauty, fitness, health and wellness concepts ranking on the top of this list. With the industry primed for increased growth, Massage Heights has identified key target growth markets and has prime territories available nationwide.

“With the industry poised for aggressive growth, there has never been a more opportune time to join the Massage Heights brand,” said Ashley Schuetz, Chief Marketing Officer of Massage Heights. “James and Eshelle embody a deep passion and unwavering commitment to the wellness of others and we are excited to continue to expand the brand’s footprint in the Las Vegas market.”

Massage, Skincare & Wellness Franchise Re-Embraces its Passionate Co-Founder to Lead Brand Innovation  

SAN ANTONIO — Massage Heights, a leading massage and wellness franchise that provides high-quality massage, skincare and wellness services in more than 115 Retreats throughout North America, announced today the return of co-founder Shane Evans as company CEO. Effective immediately, Evans takes the place of Susan Boresow, who served as President and CEO for the past two and a half years.

“Twenty years ago, when the company was founded, our vision was to provide unparalleled wellness experiences. It is with a deep sense of responsibility and commitment that I step back into this role,” said Evans, who co-founded Massage Heights in 2004, and served as its President, COO, Vice Chairwomen of the Board of Directors, and CEO, a role she held for five years up until 2021. “As we celebrate our 20th anniversary, we also look forward to launching initiatives that honor our legacy, while paving the way for future success.”

A New Chapter
Wishing her predecessor the best in future endeavors, Evans expressed deep gratitude for Boresow’s contributions, saying she has been a valuable member of the Massage Heights team. Boresow returned the kind words and appreciation.

“I’m immensely grateful for the incredible journey I’ve had bringing my years of franchise experience to leading Massage Heights over the past few years,” Boresow said. “It has been an honor to contribute to the growth and success of this growing wellness brand. It’s a wonderful time to witness the return of Massage Heights’ visionary founder Shane Evans to an active leadership role. The franchisees and I have full confidence in Shane’s ability to guide the company to even greater heights, and I look forward to cheering on the continued success of Massage Heights from the sidelines.”

Leading with Empathy 
In addition to the having unquestionable passion for the brand as its co-founder, Evans also has skin in the game and empathy for franchisees, owning a Massage Heights Retreat herself. Over the years, she has also gained perspective on the franchise industry and the franchising model in general, sitting on the board of the International Franchise Association, serving as Co-Founder and Principal of Summit Franchise Supply, LLC, and partner of The Gents Place.

As she steps back into the role of CEO, Evans said her primary focus will be fostering a culture of collaboration, transparency, and innovation among the home office team and franchisee system. “We will strive for operational excellence, enhanced franchise support, and sustainable growth, benefiting all members of our Massage Heights family,” she noted.

Riding Momentum in $1.8 Trillion Industry
With the U.S. wellness industry continuing to surge and valued at $1.8 trillion, the leadership transition comes at an ample time. Additionally, Massage Heights is riding the wave of momentum after an impressive growth year – from franchise development to the rollout of its LED Light Therapy service to a homerun partnership with former professional athlete, Bo Jackson.

Massage Heights Marks Another Milestone with First-Ever Location in New York

2023-11-07T16:58:46-05:00November 7th, 2023|Tags: , , , , , , , |

Leading Massage and Facial Franchise Opens in Kingston with Multi-Unit Franchisee, Celebrates with Grand Opening Event on Nov. 17

KINGSTON, N.Y. Massage Heights, a leading massage and wellness franchise, announces the grand opening of its newest location in Kingston, NY, which marks a significant milestone as the brand’s first location in the state. The new Retreat, located at 1204 Ulster Avenue, Suite #2 Kingston, NY 12401, will celebrate its opening with an event on November 17. With sights set on achieving another record-breaking year, Massage Heights continues to increase its presence to offer more guests massage therapy and facial treatment options.

Making history in bringing Massage Heights to the state of New York is multi-unit franchisee David Shawger and his business partners. Shawger is an existing franchisee with Massage Heights, and this will mark his second location with the brand. Having spent more than two decades as an IT consultant, Shawger had always felt a strong sense of an entrepreneurship and was looking to invest in a brand with a strong, collaborative and structural system.

Alongside Shawger are Chas Cerulli and Maria Weitzman, both of whom are taking their first step into the franchising world with this new endeavor. Cerulli has been working in higher education dining for more than 25 years and has vast experience in hospitality. After becoming a member of Massage Heights in New Jersey as a solution to his chronic back pain, he became a firm believer in the brand and the healing power of touch. Weitzman has experience as a marketing manager and consultant, working for international finance brands such as JP Morgan Chase and Bank of America. After visiting Shawger’s existing location in Morristown, NJ and experiencing the services, her decision to join Massage Heights was solidified. Both Cerulli and Weitzman having been members of Shawger’s existing location saw first-hand how the brand brings a needed service to the community.

“The Massage Heights team has always given me consistent support and that is what gave me the confidence to expand,” shared Shawger. “Being a consumer of massages for years, I have a personal commitment to wellness and know how important it is. Chas, Maria, and I look forward to breaking into the New York market while serving and connecting with the people of Kingston.”

The Ulster County Chamber of Commerce will be present for the grand opening event, with a formal ribbon cutting at 3 p.m. Guests will have the opportunity to participate in raffles and giveaways to win prizes and tour the retreat. All proceeds from the raffle will directly support Peoples Place, a local non-profit food pantry, thrift store, wellness empowerment center and community café.

“Launching our first retreat in New York is a testament to the relentless spirit of innovation that drives our company forward,” said Susan Boresow, President & CEO of Massage Heights. “We are excited to see the success David, Chas and Maria will generate, and to see the key role they will play in giving back to the Kingston community and beyond.”

New York marks Massage Heights’ presence in 16 total states as the innovative brand marches forward with an aggressive growth strategy. As the multi-billion-dollar industry remains primed for increased growth, Massage Heights offers a turnkey business opportunity backed by unmatched support. Company leadership has identified target growth markets and has prime territories available nationwide.

Leading the charge of Massage Heights’ growth in Canada are master franchisees, Will and Zach Carter.

After years of running the business, their father asked them to join and eventually take over the entrepreneurial venture. The brothers, having a sink or swim mentality, dove in headfirst and now are opening their first Massage Heights location since they took over the portfolio.

“At my core, and the core of our business, is helping people and we are able to do that every single day at our Retreats,” said Will Carter. “This is our family’s legacy – and Massage Heights provided us with the foundation and tools to bring wellness to Canada. As we open this new location, I can’t wait to see how this type of therapeutic relief makes a positive impact on our community members.”

Having learned invaluable lessons from their entrepreneurial-minded parents, the brothers have set out to continue to grow their family’s legacy across Canada. An instrumental tool in their success with the brand is the highly skilled team they have built who all align with the Carter’s core values, as well as those of Massage Heights.

To celebrate, the brothers will be hosting a grand opening event at the end of September. Leading up to their formal grand opening, the Carters will also offer a special membership promotion throughout September where each new member will be entered into a weekly drawing to receive an upgraded membership.

“International growth will continue to play a key role in our overall franchise development strategy as we look toward our next era of success,” said Susan Boresow, President & CEO of Massage Heights. “The Carter family have been ideal franchise partners, embodying a deep passion and unwavering commitment to health and wellness.  We are thrilled to have them spearheading our expansion in Canada and look forward to seeing them elevate the lives of more community members through massage therapy.”

Company leadership has identified Canada as a target growth market in addition to the various U.S. territories currently available. As the multi-billion-dollar industry remains primed for increased growth, Massage Heights offers a turnkey business opportunity backed by unmatched support.

Mechanical Engineer Turned Franchisee to Open Wellness Retreat in Southlake. 

DALLAS — Massage Heights, a leading massage and wellness franchise, announces a signed franchise agreement in the Dallas market, further growing in the brand’s home state. The location will provide an elevated experience to those in the Southlake community who are seeking personalized wellness treatment options. The retreat is located at 100 W Southlake Blvd Suite 175.

Behind the new agreement is Texas native and first-time franchisee, James Crawford. Crawford spent nearly a decade as a mechanical engineer and also started his own real estate business. Despite finding success in these avenues, Crawford hit a roadblock after facing several injuries and surgeries which forced him to slow down his workaholic lifestyle. He found that massage therapy helped with pain relief and inspired him to pursue a new career venture. Coupled with his interest in becoming a business owner and seeking out improved mental and physical health, Massage Heights was the answer he was looking for.

“When life presented me with unforeseen challenges, I saw an opportunity for transformation,” said Crawford. “In determining what would be next as I looked at new business endeavors, I discovered profound potential with Massage Heights. Prioritizing health and wellness is near to my heart, and I’m excited to create an oasis in the Southlake community where people can receive therapeutic relief in a relaxing environment.”

Having learned invaluable lessons from his time working in corporate America, Crawford has set out to foster a team-based, culturally-driven atmosphere. In Crawford’s eyes, the individuals working with him are not just employees. He highly values their professional development and is committed to equipping them with all the necessary tools to have successful careers. Crawford is eager to display his unwavering commitment to the overall health and happiness of those within the organization.

The 2023 Franchising Outlook report from the International Franchise Association reveals that Texas is one of the top states for franchise development, and outpaces all other states in terms of job expansion. The IFA also projected that service-based industries will witness higher growth than other industries with beauty, fitness, health and wellness concepts ranking high on this list. With the industry primed for increased growth, Massage Heights has identified target markets and has vast whitespace available nationwide.

“We are immensely proud to witness Massage Heights’ continued growth, especially within our cherished home state,” said Susan Boresow, President & CEO of Massage Heights. “James is an ideal franchise partner, embodying a deep passion and unwavering commitment to health and wellness. The success and careers of our massage and skin care therapists are equally important to our brand’s growth, and his determination to build an impactful team is inspiring to our leadership team and other franchisees. We are thrilled to have him as an integral part of our expansion in Texas.”
