The Triad is home to two of Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa’s top four locations in the country – including the best.
The Greensboro store, located at Friendly Center, was recently honored as “Spa-tacular Spa of the Year” award for having the highest sales of any of the chain’s nearly 300 other stores from October 2015 through September 2016. The Winston-Salem store at Thruway Shopping Center ranked fourth in sales.

Christiana Anthony, who owns the stores with husband Eric, said a High Point store is planned for 2018.
“We provide a service that is affordable and keeps people coming back,” Anthony said.
Anthony said she was especially proud of the award because many Hand & Stone locations draw from much larger population bases.
“Our stores are in two incredible lifestyle centers,” Anthony said.
Hand & Stone’s staple is a monthly “membership,” which includes one massage or facial each month for $59.95.
The Greensboro location, opened in 2009, has 17 rooms and about 45 employees. The Winston-Salem location, opened in 2011, has 13 rooms and about 35 employees.
And both are growing. Anthony said the stores are in the process of adding about 25 employees, split between the locations. About 15 of the new employees will be massage therapists. Each store will add two staffers for facials and three to handle front desk/sales duties.
Unlike many other spas, Hand & Stone provides only massage and facial treatments.
The Anthonys have expanded outside the Triad in recent years, opening locations in Fayetteville and Southern Pines. They plan to open a location in Concord in 2017.
