Hand & Stone opens in Quartermaster

A new luxury massage and facial spa franchise is moving into South Philly and getting comfortable.

Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa moved its newest franchise into the Quartermaster Plaza just off the Interstate 76 expressway in South Philadelphia. 

Located at 2306 W. Oregon Ave., the new Hand & Stone spa is owned and operated by experienced franchisees and husband-and-wife team Joe and Bryn Erace. The couple opened their first spa in 2014 and added locations all across the country including several spots in the greater Philadelphia area, including one in the Riverview Plaza at 1100 S. Columbus Blvd.

According to the owners, the Eraces have a passion for Hand & Stone and commitment to serving their communities, which has propelled their growth and made them two of the most successful franchisees in the brand’s system. 

“Joe and I continue to grow this business because we love the positive effect it has on the communities we serve,” said Bryn Erace. “Our massage and facial services help our neighbors invest in taking care of themselves and give them an opportunity to de-stress. We are fortunate to work with amazing teams at each of our spas who love helping others live a healthier life. Building this rewarding business and adding another location in Philadelphia – Joe’s hometown – is a dream come true for us.”

Services include Swedish, Himalayan Salt, Sports, Deep Tissue, Oncology and Prenatal massages. Guests can also visit the new Quartermaster spa to enjoy Hand & Stone’s signature hot stone massage and best-in-class facial treatments tailored to each individual’s needs or skin concerns, with a wide range of services available for women, men and teens.  

According to the company’s policy, all services are performed by experienced licensed estheticians and massage therapists. Members have access to a team of wellness experts who specialize in providing exceptional skincare and massage treatments, ensuring a tranquil, relaxing and comfortable environment. 

The spa will be open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on weekends. For more information visit handandstone.com/locations/pa-philadelphia-quartermaster
