SAN ANTONIO (Oct. 18, 2017) – Massage Heights, a leader of professional, affordable and convenient therapeutic massage and facial services, announced today that it will expand its footprint to Indiana with a new Retreat opening in Indianapolis, within the Ironworks Hotel Indy, a 100,000-square-foot hotel that opened in September 2017 and includes 15,000-square-feet of retail space. Located at 2721 E 86th St, Suite 160, the Massage Heights Ironworks is owned and operated by local entrepreneurs Cristina and Matt Goebel. Through Nov. 26, the Retreat will offer a one-hour massage for the discounted price of $24.99 (a value of $99.99 for non-members) and a facial for the discounted rate of $34.99 (a value of $99.99 for non-members). Massage Heights Ironworks will host a grand opening celebration in late November.
Prior to becoming a franchisee with Massage Heights, Cristina was a professional cheerleader for the Indianapolis Colts for four years while Matt currently serves as the chief information officer (CIO) for Massage Heights’ corporate office. While accompanying her husband at a Massage Heights conference in San Antonio, Cristina visited a Retreat for the first time and loved the atmosphere and service. The visit inevitably motivated the entrepreneur to open a location in Indianapolis. Cristina has several years of experience as a recruiter at a financial planning company, which specialized in insurance and investments. Most recently, the husband-and-wife team launched an online wedding planning app business from the ground up. The Goebels are planning to open a second Massage Heights location in Carmel by the end of 2017 and a third by Summer 2018.
“After cheering for the Colts for four years, I suffered from a lot of back pain constantly. Matt suggested that I visit a Massage Heights location while we were in San Antonio and the experience was so positive that it made me realize I didn’t want to go back to Indianapolis without a Massage Heights Retreat to go to,” Cristina said. “After speaking with existing franchisees about their experience with the company, I learned about the strong business model and support that Massage Heights offers to their franchisees. My husband and I are extremely excited to bring locations of our own to our community.”
On Saturday, Oct. 21, from 5-10:30 p.m., Indianapolis-area residents are encouraged to attend “Ironworks Social,” a celebration kicking off the hotel’s opening. Small plates from key restaurants at Ironworks at Keystone and Ironworks Hotel including Ruth’s Chris, Sangiovese Ristorante, and Cunningham Restaurant Group’s Provision and Rize will be available for purchase, as well as libations from Sun King Brewing and Fountain Square’s Hotel Tango. Guests can also enjoy live music from Indianapolis favorite The Bishops and Wisconsin-based WiFEE and the HUZzBAND. Massage Heights Ironworks will be on site providing more information about the soon-to-open Retreat.
Massage Heights Ironworks will be open Monday – Friday from 9 a.m. – 9 p.m., Saturday from 9 a.m. – 7 p.m. and Sunday from 9 a.m. – 7 p.m. For more information, visit massageheights.com/locations/in/indianapolis-in/ironworks, or call (317) 559-5910.
