La Vida Massage: Bringing Health and Wellness from Oakland County to the Rest of the Country

LaVida Massage

was founded in 2007 and is based in Commerce Township. LaVida is a leading provider of affordable and convenient health and wellness services and is rapidly expanding across the country with more than 50 locations in 20 states throughout the US and one additional location in Canada.
LaVida has been growing rapidly since 2009, reporting their annual revenue up 148 percent each consecutive year with a more than 115 percent increase in new clients and more than 310 percent increase in membership sales. They have been ranked as one of Entrepreneur Magazine’s “Hot Franchise Picks” every year since 2011.
What has set LaVida Massage apart from other spas and salons is their emphasis on health and wellness. As the holistic health and wellness industry continues to grow and customers desire not just the cosmetic advantages of spa treatments but the mental and physical therapeutic treatments, LaVida has cornered the market in wellness. They offer a wide range of holistic treatments, including massage services ranging from relaxation to sports to prenatal, reflexology, trigger point therapy, skincare peels and facials, and body wraps.
The company is experiencing rapid growth in the Midwest and Southeast regions, but it’s not just in franchise locations that the company is expanding. LaVida is in the process of developing a new website scheduled to launch this fall, which will be much more user-friendly for both customers and franchisees. The new site will include new content and updated brand imagery, and will also allow customers to option to book appointments online.  
But a new website isn’t the only thing that LaVida is introducing to further enhance the customer experience: the company is now offering their own line of LaVida Massage essential oils. These oils are the first custom products developed exclusively for LaVida and are applied as an aromatherapy add-on to any facial or massage session and assist in effectively aiding relief from sore joints, aching muscles and a number of additional physical and psychological ailments. Available in therapeutic scents such as eucalyptus, peppermint, lavender, and tangerine, they are also available to purchase for home use and will be available in all locations by September.
