What differentiates Massage Green Spa from competitors?

Massage Green Spa is the only high-end spa franchise in the U.S. that can claim to be the “Best Value in America”.  Massage Green Spa is the model that sets us apart from other spas.  We are able to provide a consistent experience to every guest that visits a Massage Green Spa across the nation.  Our concept is based on results-oriented treatments, which are viewed more as a necessity rather than a luxury.  We do not offer hair services and therefore set ourselves apart from other salon/spas.  Most “high-end” spas are located in a hotel or resort setting, where Massage Green Spas are located in communities and lifestyle centers in a day spa setting.  Our pricing structure is significantly lower than the competition, which allows more guests to experience the spa on a more regular basis.


How has the economy affected spas and Massage Green Spa?

While the growth and new openings of many individual day spas have remained stagnant, Massage Green Spa continues to be the fastest growing Massage Therapy Spa in the country.  While some other franchise models have experienced some growth, Massage Green Spa has dedicated significant time and resources to planning and building a foundation to support Massage Green Spas around the country, building a “Brand Name” which has allowed it to not only grow, but also flourish in a down economy.
