"I've lived in this community my whole life...over 30 years....and I just wanted to give this neighborhood an amazing place to truly enjoy life, and get some of the well-deserved rest & relaxation that we all need in our lives." - Dave B., Owner
Costa Mesa, California (PRWEB) July 08, 2013
Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa of Costa Mesa is a trendy, brand new southern California day spa, located in the heart of Coastal Orange County on 17th Street and Orange Ave., right on the border of Newport Beach. To celebrate the brand's newest and most luxurious spa to date, the Costa Mesa location is offering, for a very limited time, a 50% off promotion for all clients on its very popular massages and facials.
Offering resort-quality massages, facials, body waxing, microdermabrasion and skin peels, Hand & Stone is a high-end day spa franchise, which looks to offer a serene, relaxing and high-end day spa experience for all of its clients. Hand & Stone only employs certified and licensed massage therapists and estheticians, all of whom have gone through at least 800 hours of clinical and hands-on training, in addition to specific Hand & Stone training courses taken to ensure that each service provider delivers a top-quality treatment. All Hand & Stone spas offer a tranquil and beautiful spa environment, a friendly and warm staff, and extremely competitive pricing.
Based on the brand's unprecedented success across the country, and its meteoric rise in location additions all over Southern California (by year's end, Hand & Stone will have 10 locations in LA and Orange County), Hand & Stone was ranked by Entrepreneur Magazine as the #2 Day Spa Franchise in the world, only behind the corporate juggernaut, Massage Envy. The Costa Mesa location is the brand's newest attempt at creating a 5-star resort quality spa experience, at the affordable price of a neighborhood spa. The location has seen tremendous success in its first 6 months of operation, and is hoping to add a large rush of new clients by way of this promotional offer. The brand rarely offers discounts of this amount, which is why Hand & Stone of Costa Mesa believes that it will be able to add over 200 new members by the end of August (this offer ends August 31st). To shed some light on this promotion, a client can purchase a 1-hour massage and a 1-hour facial, and pay only $99 for both services (a client may also purchase either a massage or a facial, for a price of $49.95 each). Based on the pricing available on Hand & Stone's webpage (http://www.handandstone.com), that is a full 50% lower than regular guest pricing at the spa. Not bad.
Appointments can be booked quickly and easily over the phone (949-645-4823), or online at Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa - Costa Mesa. The Costa Mesa location is open from 9 a.m. - 10 p.m. Monday - Friday, 10 a.m. - 8 p.m. Saturday, and 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. Sunday. All customers are given a glass of water or tea upon arriving, invited to relax in the spa's well-appointed lobby while they wait, and then introduced to their therapist before each service begins. As the Costa Mesa owner provides, "the entire process is designed to be thoughtful, seamless and relaxing, with each employee doing everything he or she can to enhance the client's overall experience."
Also, instead of locking clients into a year long contract (which is standard practice for most day spa franchises), Hand & Stone's popular Month-To-Month Membership Program allows clients to cancel at any time, without any penalty for doing so. The Hand & Stone Membership also provides members with huge discounts on products and services (some as high as 50% off regular pricing), a 1-hour massage or facial each month, the ability to carry-over unused services from prior months, freeze one's membership for up to 3 months, and book services outside of normal operating hours, all for a low monthly payment of $59.95. The Costa Mesa location also offers a generous 20% off discount on monthly membership dues for all active duty military, police, firemen, nurses, teachers, yoga/pilates instructors, and child services employees. Hand & Stone of Costa Mesa also offers a full menu of day spa services, including 15+ massage and facial options, microdermabrasion, skin peels, hot and cold stone massages, body waxing and hair removal, and various Biofreeze treatments, as opposed to other spa franchises that limit their selection to 4-5 different massages, and 1-2 different facials. Hand & Stone also allows its clients to rent the location for spa parties, bridal showers, bachelorette parties, or private events, and sends all customers special promotions and discount offers on a monthly basis.
Hand & Stone of Costa Mesa is conveniently located on 17th Street in Costa Mesa, right next to Sprout's Farmers Market (a high-end grocer specializing in organic and natural foods), with great curb appeal, easy walking or bike access, and countless parking spaces. In addition the owner adamantly instills a theme of customer service and relaxation in his spa, where "all employees work very hard to ensure each client has a first class experience, and do everything they can to make sure a customer leaves feeling much better than when they came in."
MEET THE OWNER: -- David Beser, a lifelong Newport Beach resident, decided to leave the daily grind of his corporate job and open a day spa that offered people an escape from their normal routines: "I wanted to open a business that gave people some relief from the stresses of daily life. When someone arrives at my spa, they often look tired and stressed out, and desperately in need of some rest and relaxation. However, after enjoying their respective treatments, our clients always leave feeling refreshed and energized...ready to tackle the rest of their day."
Based on David's calm, outgoing and endearing personality, it is clear why all of his employees and customers love him, and why this business is likely to continue its momentum and great success for many years to come. He seems to truly care about his clients and staff, and really does want to have a positive impact on the community that has been so good to him: "I've lived in coastal Orange County my whole life...over 30 years....and I just wanted to give this neighborhood an amazing place to truly enjoy life, and get some of the well-deserved rest & relaxation that we all need in our lives. Just watching how happy people look when they leave my spa is everything to me. All in all, if this spa is able to help our local residents feel better about themselves, whether emotionally or physically, then I have built a truly successful business." As you can see, Hand & Stone of Costa Mesa is a "client first" and "quality over quantity" type of business, where each employee seeks to really improve each client's day through a variety of spa services. From what I have seen, I believe that the Costa Mesa location is an excellent choice for those looking for a great "spa day" experience, without the typical "spa day" resort pricing.
