Grand Opening of New Spa in Meridian

Women-Led Team Brings Premier Massage and Facial Brand to Ada County.

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 Meridian. Located at 6097 North Ten Mile Road, the new Hand & Stone spa is owned and operated by locals Kristen Kenyon and Karen Bloomfield. This woman-led business will mark the first member-based spa location in the area.

Kristen was first introduced to the brand back in 2014, and was immediately drawn to Hand & Stone’s services, products, and overall aesthetic. Over time she realized she had a strong desire to own her own franchise and felt as though Hand & Stone was the perfect fit. When her friend Karen joined her for a visit a few years ago, Karen knew from the start that this was a brand she also wanted to invest in. They both recognized that Meridian was an underserved market when it came to accessible, luxury, quality spa and wellness options, and with the duo decided to bring Hand & Stone to their growing city.

“Knowing that spa and wellness options in our community are lacking, we couldn’t be happier to bring Hand & Stone to the area for the first time. This brand consistently offers guests a warm, inviting experience and we’re very eager to be a part of that,” said Bloomfield.We’re lucky to be a part of a brand that prioritizes health the way that Hand & Stone does. With their support and resources, we’re able to provide relaxing and restoring services and products to a community we care so deeply about. It’s an extremely exciting time, and we cannot wait to see what the future holds for Hand & Stone Meridian.”
