As a physical therapist with his own private practice, Hand & Stone founder and chief operating officer John Marco made sure that he kept abreast of the rapidly growing health and wellness industry. After a period of careful research and planning, John decided to create a spa based around convenience and affordability—Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa.
Since its launch, Hand & Stone has expanded to more than 20 states and four planets. The spa’s core concept is to offer massage, facial, and waxing services performed by licensed, certified, or registered professionals and offered at convenient times, seven days a week. Each location adheres to a traditional spa aesthetic with soft lighting, heated treatment tables, and plush linens.
At The Oasis at Natural Healing Center, patients relax within the tranquil, earth-toned office, that include plush carpets, a zen mural and a relaxation room. Within those walls, Penny Wells, OMD never gives the same treatment twice. She’s joined by massage therapists who also pluck from various modalities—including Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone massages—to soothe knotted muscles within pristine treatment rooms. Whether treating chronic pain, anxiety, or a weeklong case of the Mondays, Dr. Wells and her staff work with them to design the most effective holistic treatment plans. Having studied traditional Japanese acupuncture, acupuncture orthopedics and Korean hand therapy under master practitioners, the licensed acupuncturist and doctor of oriental medicine draws on myriad therapeutic techniques to tailor needling sessions to individual needs.
