What are some of your most popular services? What do you think clients love them so much?
Deep-tissue and bamboo massage really gets into the tissues and relieves tension. Hot stone massage is also popular because of how warm the stones are—and how cold it is in Wisconsin. It's a great way to heat the body up again and escape the chilly weather.
What is one fun, unusual fact about your business?
My studio also houses many hairstylists and beauty professionals, which means my clients can have a whole day of pampering, if they like.
How did you get started in the beauty industry? Did you have an "ah-ha" moment in life?
It happened when I was 21. I just enjoyed massage, because doing what you love doesn't feel like work.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
I think healthy living is the best way to go. Get a regular massage and be good to your body.

Named a Top Salon by Milwaukee Magazine in 2006, Bella Lei gives clients an upscale spa experience in an intimate setting. Take advantage of these environs and spend 60 minutes the Swedish way ($70 value), as trained massage therapists use firm pressure and complicated kneading techniques to untie knots and burst stress bubbles. Twitching muscles frequently relax after these sessions and show a marked improvement in standardized testing scores. For clients looking for a fresher front, the Vivo Facial ($70 value) uses a marine mask to create an even tone, while a full hand, arm, face, and décolleté massage carries the glow up through your neck and down to your fingertips like a carrier pigeon on a Fantastic Voyage.
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.

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.
