FAQs

Answered—your most frequently asked questions about the LaVida Massage opportunity.
What territories are available?

Across all 50 states, virtually all areas are open to new LaVida Massage Center ownership. If you have one in mind, we’ll assist with targeting the ideal location for your success.

You can rely on our support throughout the entire process—from initial site selection to your center’s ultimate build-out and its Grand Opening.

Are LaVida Massage Franchise territories protected?

Yes. Each of our LaVida Massage Center owners is granted a designated area in which no other LaVida Massage Franchise can compete for business.

Do you offer financing options?

Yes. Ask us about available financing options for your LaVida Massage Franchise acquisition.

How much time will I need to devote to my center?

It varies. Most LaVida Massage Centers benefit from the hands-on management of the owner or co-owners. Your team of massage therapists and staff members will likely need your leadership.

That said, our web-based management tools make it possible for you to run a center from any location. Some owners work part- or even full-time jobs in addition to managing their franchise business. Others take advantage of these efficiencies to own and operate several LaVida Massage Centers.

The bottom line? Your investment of time will often dictate success. In our experience, active owners are likely to become profitable much faster than those who operate on an absentee basis.

What if I don’t have massage therapy industry experience?

Prior participation in the business is helpful but not required. Through initial training and with ongoing support, we’ve assisted people from all walks of life to achieve their dreams of business ownership with a LaVida Massage Franchise.

Former office workers, stay-at-home parents, and dog walkers are among those who are now fulfilling their dream of working for themselves with LaVida Massage.

Isn't massage therapy a feminine “spa treatment?”

Not anymore. Since the pandemic began, men are now more likely than women to get a massage. Per industry research, 25% of men and 21% of women got a massage in 2021.

Designed as inviting, gender-neutral settings and not exclusive spas, LaVida Massage Centers address this trend. Our services are positioned as frequent necessities rather than occasional luxuries.

What’s the role of local marketing?

It’s one of LaVida Massage’s three pillars to success. Marketing your franchise to prospects within driving distance is key to achieving continual growth. By using multiple channels such as search engine marketing and social media as well as print and digital ads, you can drive traffic through your doors. But it’s not all on you. We’re here to help.

Do centers adhere to a membership model?

Yes. Growing and maintaining your customer base through our Guest Pass Monthly Membership Program is so important we term it the second pillar of franchise success. You’ll likely find that it’s your largest source of income. On average, over 65% of annual revenue earned by LaVida Massage Centers comes from guests who have registered as members.

Why the emphasis on exceptional customer service?

This is the third pillar to the success of any LaVida Massage Franchise. In fact, we developed and refined a Guest Process to show you the way. Providing guidelines for exceptional customer service, it helps increase your membership base and works to ensure that every customer receives the best level of service.
