Grand Opening of New Spa In Winter Garden

Experienced Franchise Owners Bring Premier Massage and Facial Spa Brand to the Horizon West Community

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 Winter Garden. Located in the new “The Mark on Seidel” shopping center at 9240 Miley Drive, Suite 130, near Horizon West, the new Hand & Stone spa is owned and operated by multi-unit franchisees Andy Mellen and Kirk Sorenson. With the opening of their new spa, the duo is bringing Hand & Stone’s signature skincare services and luxury spa experience to the Horizon West community, making high-end wellness services affordable and accessible in Winter Garden.

“We have been so grateful to the Dr. Phillips and Windermere communities that have supported our business over the years, and we look forward to providing the same quality Hand & Stone wellness and spa experience to our neighbors in Winter Garden,” said Mellen. “Our skincare services such as CryoSkin and DiamondGlow® are going to be very popular, bringing revolutionary technology at affordable prices to an area of town that hasn’t had a spa and skincare option like this before.”

Mellen and Sorenson own two other Hand & Stone spa locations together, debuting in Dr. Phillips in 2015 and opening a second location in Windermere three years later. Both men call southwest Orlando home and are thrilled to be expanding their business to now include the growing Horizon West area of Winter Garden.

Like all Hand & Stone spas nationwide, the new Winter Garden-Horizon West location offers advanced skincare and spa services that incorporate new technologies at the forefront of the wellness market to enhance each guest’s overall experience. These advanced services include CryoSkin, DiamondGlow® facial, NuFACE microcurrent facial, Percussive Therapy massage and LED Phototherapy facial, as well as innovations such as CBD oil enhancements and partnerships with award-winning skincare lines Dermalogica® and ClarityRX.

The newest Hand & Stone in Winter Garden brings high-quality professional massage services, including Swedish, Himalayan Salt, Sports, Deep Tissue, Oncology and Prenatal massages to the Horizon West community. Guests can also visit the new spa to enjoy Hand & Stone’s signature hot stone massage and best-in-class facial treatments tailored to each individual's needs or skin concerns, with a wide-range of services available for women, men and teens.

All Hand & Stone services are performed by experienced licensed estheticians and massage therapists.
