Grand Opening of a New Spa in Philadelphia

Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa, the nation’s leading luxury massage and facial spa franchise, announced today the opening of its newest franchised location in Philadelphia. Located at 2201 Cottman Ave., the new Hand & Stone spa is owned by franchisees Joe and Bryn Erace. The husband-and-wife team has been with the brand since 2014 and owns four other Hand & Stone spas in Cherry Hill, New Jersey and the greater Philadelphia area with plans to open an additional location in South Philadelphia. With the opening of their new spa, the Eraces bring Hand & Stone’s signature luxury spa experience to Northeast Philadelphia, making high-end wellness services affordable and accessible to the local community.

“My husband, Joe, is a Philadelphia native so this city holds a special place in both our hearts and we’re so excited to open our third Philly-area spa alongside our operations manager, Corin Barlow,” said Bryn Erace, owner of the Hand & Stone on Cottman Ave. “Since having my first Hand & Stone experience over 10 years ago and then opening our first spa shortly thereafter, Joe and I have fallen more in love with this brand and what we’re able to provide to the local communities we serve. As health and wellness enthusiasts ourselves, we know the importance of self-care, and we’re looking forward to providing a tranquil retreat where Northeast Philly residents can relax and unwind.”
