100th Massage Heights Location Opens in Iowa

Body + Face Concept Contributing to Company's Growth

January 15, 2014 // Franchising.com // San Antonio, Texas – Massage Heights, a family-owned membership-based massage franchise company that helps people elevate the everyday and lead a balanced life through professional, convenient and affordable therapeutic massage and facial services, opened its 100th location, Massage Heights Iowa River Landing in Coralville, Iowa. This is the 49th body + face concept location to open, bringing the total percentage of locations offering custom dermalogica® skin care treatments to almost 50% of the total franchise system. This landmark achievement comes not only as the company celebrates its 10th anniversary in April, 2014 but also follows a recent appearance by the company's COO and co-Founder Shane Evans on CBS' hit reality show series, Undercover Boss, and is the beginning of an aggressive growth year for the company that has 30 Retreats in development and plans for 75 licenses in 2014.

"In 2007 we opened our first franchise location outside the state of Texas in Iowa and we are thrilled to celebrate the opening of our 100th location and the growth of the body + face concept in the same state with one of our first Regional Developers," says Bret Franson, Director of Franchise Development.

The rapidly growing membership-model massage franchise has tapped into a virtual goldmine segment: consumers receive approximately 230 million massage sessions annually, making massage therapy one of the fastest growing industries in the nation.

"With 25 million more Americans each year getting a massage today than a decade ago, the room for growth is limitless" said Glenn Franson, President and CEO. "Medical research proves that regular therapeutic massage can help fight off disease and depression, boost immunity, relieve pain, increase alertness and improve sleep quality among other benefits. Massage Heights makes this an affordable and convenient option for people from all walks of life."

Franson also attributes the company's success to the overall culture and commitment to becoming the brand of choice by elevating the everyday for Members, Guests, Strategic-partners and Team Members.

Massage Heights offers a variety of custom massage modalities, including Deep Tissue, Swedish, Sports Therapy, Prenatal and Reflexology, as well as custom dermalogica® skin treatments, including Anti-Aging, Sensitive Skin, Clear Skin and Brightening. Therapeutic experience-enhancing add-on services called "Elevations" include a Reviving Foot Scrub, Revitalizing Face Massage, Hot Stone Therapy, Active Therapy, Skin Enriching, Skin Refining, Skin Purifying and all-natural aromatherapy.
