COME GROW WITH US!Invest in your own LaVida Massage Center
LaVida Massage is a unique Wellness Center offering highly customized therapeutic massage and skincare services that are affordable and convenient. We are a leading provider of holistic health and wellness services, catering to busy, active lifestyles in gender-neutral settings. Founded in Michigan, the LaVida Massage mission is to improve the lives of our guests through exceptional treatments, products, education, and customer care. For our Franchisees, our mission is to make sure that they succeed. From marketing materials to operational support, our Franchisee’s success is our success. We are there supporting every step of the franchise process.
The perception is that massage is a luxury item rather than a necessity. The American Massage Therapy Association’s most recent fact sheet shows that “in 2021, 25% of men and 21% of women got a massage.” This proves as an industry there is growth potential as more of the population learns about the benefits of regular therapeutic massage.

LaVida Massage combines industry expertise with personalized care for both Franchisees and guests alike. While perfecting the entire guest process for our diverse guest base, LaVida Massage has built a highly unique franchise experience. This business opportunity exists for like-minded entrepreneurs interested in the growing health and wellness industry.

IT’S SIMPLE. WE’RE DIFFERENT.

LaVida Massage is privately owned. There isn’t a board of directors or venture capitalists with their own agendas. We work directly with you as an individual.
IN-HOUSE SUPPORT & MARKETING
There is no such thing as “cookie-cutter” here at LaVida Massage. Just like the customized services at a center, the training & marketing support offered is personalized to the franchisee, their needs, and experiences.
Not only is guest satisfaction important within the Guest Process but it is also seen as an indication of performance for our centers. Focusing on the guests clearly setsLaVida Massage apart from the competition in reputation.

What territories are available?
All territories are open to new LaVida Massage ownership. Currently, Michigan and Georgia house our largest market concentrations. We can and will gladly assist with targeting the ideal location for your optimal success! We provide support through the entire process, from site selection to build-out.
What is a protected franchise territory?
Each of our LaVida Massage franchisees is granted a specific and designated area in which no other LaVida Massage franchise location is awarded, to ensure a non-competitive arrangement. A five-mile radius is typical for each territory.
Do you offer financing options?
Hands on assistance is available for financing options.
What kind of time investment will my LaVida Massage Center require?
You will have to decide for yourself what kind of time commitment you are capable of making. Efficient web-based management tools and software make it uniquely possible to run your daily business from virtually any location, but your team of therapists and front desk staff will still need your leadership and management. We have many members of the LaVida Massage Network who work full or part-time jobs in addition to operating their Centers – some full-time franchisees who hold ‘day jobs’ are even multi-unit LaVida Massage Center owners! Your commitment of time is yours to determine. We are looking more for an active owner/operator as we have seen these Centers become profitable much faster than with absentee owner/operators. The bottom line is– your investment of effort and time will often dictate profitability. While working smarter is a great solution, there is still no substitute for time investment.
What if I do not have industry experience?
With the support of our established business model, extensive training materials, and hands-on corporate staff, no industry experience is necessary to open your own LaVida Massage. We provide training and remain a resource throughout your ownership.
Isn't massage a feminine spa treatment?
Not true! One shift that has occurred since the pandemic began is that men are now more likely than women to get a massage. In 2021 25% of men and 21% of women got a massage.
The perception is that massage is a luxury item rather than a necessity. LaVida Massage is not a spa and focuses on the benefits of a regular therapeutic massage in a gender-neutral setting.
