Family-Owned Franchise Group Brings Premier Massage and Facial Spa Brand To Carver 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 Chanhassen, Minnesota. Located at 858 West 78th Street, the new Hand & Stone Chanhassen spa is owned and operated by cosmetologist and experienced business owner, Shannon Schoettler, who’s sister is Hand & Stone’s Director of Franchise Development, Sarah Moudry. With the opening of her new spa, the family will bring Hand & Stone’s signature luxury spa experience to the area, making high-end wellness services affordable and accessible to the community.

“Hand & Stone is founded on family values and considering my family’s experience in business management and the health and wellness space, it was clear that we would be a perfect fit for this brand,” said Shannon Schoettler, co-owner of Hand & Stone Chanhassen. “We are so excited to work together, bringing an innovative and attainable luxury spa to the Chanhassen area.”

The newest Hand & Stone in Chanhassen brings high-quality professional massage services, including Swedish, Himalayan Salt, Sports, Deep Tissue, Oncology and Prenatal massages to the Chanhassen community. Guests may also enjoy Hand & Stone’s signature hot stone massage and best-in-class facial treatments, all tailored to each individual's needs or skin concerns and available for women, men and teens. Additionally, at Hand & Stone Chanhassen, guests will have access to the spa’s signature Prince facial in honor of the late musician, as the area is where his museum and prior home are.

“Since joining Hand & Stone’s corporate team a few years ago, I have seen the strength of the business model and unmatched operator support firsthand,” said Sarah Moudry, Chanhassen Director of Franchise Development at Hand & Stone. “Chanhassen is one of the fastest growing cities in the country and Money.com recently rated it as a ‘best places to live!’ That is why my family is dedicated to making Chanhassen even better by providing opportunities for people to prioritize their self-care and well-being.”

“We are thrilled for the days ahead, working with our daughters and building a legacy for our grandchildren,” said Jill and Jeff Widness, Schoettler and Moudry’s parents and co-owners of Hand & Stone Chanhassen. “As an entrepreneur at heart with a passion for preventative care it has been a wonderful experience learning the franchise side of operating a business focused on wellness.”

At each Hand & Stone location, services are performed by experienced licensed estheticians and massage therapists committed to providing the best guest experience possible. This commitment has translated to an unparalleled level of expertise at each location, supported by best-in-class training and ongoing education resources available to the Hand & Stone team. At Hand & Stone Chanhassen, guests will have access to an array of wellness experts who specialize in providing exceptional skincare and massage treatments, resulting in a tranquil, rejuvenating and relaxed experience.
