Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa ribbon cuttingThe Chamber, Colonie Town Supervisor Paula Mahan, Ambassadors and supporters gathered on July 15, 2021 to cut the ceremonial ribbon of one of Albany’s newest businesses, Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa. Husband-and-wife team, Carlos and Katie Perez have both led careers in the health and wellness industry. Carlos, originally from Venezuela, is a physical therapist, working in an outpatient therapy center for some time before switching to work as the primary physical therapist for their local school district in Stone Ridge. Katie, originally from Queens, has worked as a nursing home administrator for the past 28 years. Together, they know the importance of wellness and love getting massages on a regular basis. Katie has always dreamed of opening her own spa and when COVID-19 hit, it further reinforced it was the decision they wanted to make for their futures.

Carlos and Katie ultimately chose to franchise with Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa because of its welcoming atmosphere, luxury spa experience, and backing from a sturdy corporate team. They opened a Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa in Albany in Spring of 2021 with plans to open a second in Schenectady down the line. Guests entering the spa in Albany, NY will be enveloped in soothing sounds and aromas while the journey to relaxation and restoration awaits. In a stress-filled world, a full body massage will relieve tension, soothe tired muscles and temper migraines. There are several choices including Swedish, Deep Tissue, Sports and more!
