A new business is open in Geneva along the Randall Road corridor aimed at helping you feel and look better.
Hand & Stone opened May 3 at 1416 S. Randall in the Randall Square Shopping Center at the intersection of Randall and Fargo.
This is the second Hand & Stone franchise location for Geneva resident Kathy Hendershott. Her first is in Wheaton, and Hendershott said she is excited to bring the business to her own town.
"As Geneva residents, we wanted to bring the Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa philosophy and services to our local community," she said. "The people in this area are very health conscious, and we have the opportunity to provide the benefit of massage and facial services to local residents, our neighbors and friends.
"We have a passion for health and wellness and have enjoyed working with clients to provide the quality of services," Hendershott said.
"While massage and facial services are good for your health, wellness and personal care, this is also a feel-good industry and we really love seeing clients so relaxed and smiling when they leave."
Hand & Stone offers massages, facials and hair removal services. Clients can purchase services one visit at a time, or the company offers a monthly membership-type program.
Customers can just walk in; however, Hendershott recommends they call ahead for an appointment.
Hendershott said she's hoping to open a third location soon in Naperville. There already is another Hand & Stone location along the Randall Road corridor in Algonquin, 710 S. Randall Road.
Hendershott said she's excited to meet all of the customers trying out her new location in Geneva.
"We look forward to working within the local community and want to thank our many customers, employees and friends for helping to make Hand & Stone Massage and Facial so successful," she said.
