LaVida Massage Opens Second Austin Wellness Center, First in Pflugerville

Cedar Park Local 'Massages' Profits of Growing Massage Franchise with Area Expansion

February 11, 2014 // // PFLUGERVILLE, Texas - LaVida Massage, a unique international franchising corporation specializing in health and wellness through therapeutic massage services for the family, is expanding in the Austin market with the opening of its Pflugerville, Texas center. This marks the second LaVida Massage center in the Austin metropolitan area.

Located in the Stone Hill Town Center (12 miles northeast of Austin at the corner of State Hwy 130 and State Hwy 45) at 1513 Stone Hill Drive, Suite 200, the center is opening its doors to business this week. It is a 2,400 square feet facility and features eight regular massage room, one room hosting skin care services and one room dedicated to Vichy treatments—a new service offered only at this LaVida Massage location.

Providing a number of massage therapy services and related products specifically meant to meet the needs of both men and women within the community, LaVida Massage of Pflugerville offers therapies that include Swedish, deep tissue, hot stone, prenatal, orthopedic, oncological, sports therapy and more. Additionally, the Pflugerville center offers aesthetic services such as facials, waxing and body wraps.

And, further reaffirming LaVida Pflugerville's commitment to providing the best in wellness treatments, the center carries products by GlyMed Plus and offers Vichy treatments. GlyMed Plus is a leading brand of professional skin care products specializing in anti-aging and anti-acne regimens. Vichy is a body treatment, similar to a scrub or wrap, that utilizes a special shower running parallel to a cushioned treatment table; instead of getting up to rinse off the treatment salt or mud, one simply lies there to complete the therapy for enhanced convenience and relaxation.

In honoring its opening, LaVida Massage of Pflugerville is offering limited time specials that include a $39.95 custom massage session.

Owned and managed by Cedar Park local and corporate veteran in the information technology industry along with his wife, Abhay and Suparna Salunke also maintain dedicated ownership to LaVida Massage of Cedar Park:

"Our Cedar Park center, which opened in the summer of 2012, is doing well in serving as a wellness complement to the community," says Abhay. "With the recent business spurt in Pflugerville (Stone Hill recently added the popular Hawaiian Falls water park), we expect to be a good addition to the area as the only local business of this kind."

In addition to adding business and holistic wellness to Pflugerville, The Salunkes are supporting the local job market by employing several positions for the new LaVida Massage center—including therapists, front desk staff and marketing manager to locally promote the business.

Frequent massage therapy sessions have been proven time and again to benefit the health with increased blood circulation, enhanced sleep quality, greater energy levels, improved body motion, reduced heart rate and injury prevention and rehabilitation.

"I was drawn to this industry because I wanted to be able to start a business that also gives back and helps people. It's a service that's really a great value—contributing to stress-relief, and overall happy and healthy lifestyles," continues Abhay. "And LaVida is a win with its easy-going, family friendly atmosphere and reasonably priced services."
