(June 3, 2024) Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa, the nation’s leading luxury massage and facial spa franchise, announced today its newest franchised spa opening in West Ashley located at 1133 Savannah Highway Suite 510. Owned by local entrepreneurs Chad Foster and Mark Reisinger, the West Ashley location marks the brand’s 10th spa in South Carolina, and the business duo’s fifth unit together. To celebrate the upcoming opening and showcase their dedication to offering top-tier self-wellness services to the Greater Charleston community, the West Ashley spa is offering a free massage or facial service with the purchase of a membership, available at the lowest-ever offered price of $79.95, $0 enrollment fee and free upgrades for life (up to $20), which is locked in for the duration of the membership. This offer is limited to the first 200 members.

“We look forward to welcoming our new members with this special discount so they can experience some of our most popular services right at the start of joining,” explained Chad Foster, co-owner of Hand & Stone West Ashley. “Self-care continues to become more important with the increasing stresses of daily life, and we are excited to provide a sanctuary where the Greater Charleston community can unwind, rejuvenate and prioritize their well-being.”

Foster and Reisinger are multi-unit franchisees with Hand & Stone, having opened their first spa more than 16 years ago in Charlotte. Since then, the dynamic partners have expanded their each within the Carolinas to bring the brand’s premier wellness services to even more communities, including Mount Pleasant and Summerville. Having grown alongside the brand for many years, Foster and Reisinger have witnessed firsthand the innovative ways Hand & Stone has continued to improve its offerings to both its clients and franchisees.

“It’s incredible to grow our portfolio with a brand that shows the same deep care for its owners and operators as it does for its guests,” said Mark Reisinger, co-owner of Hand & Stone West Ashley. “The continued support we receive, coupled with Hand & Stone’s unmatched ability to continue to innovate its offerings and resources, allow us to remain competitive in the market and provide the best massage and facial services in the state.”
