Massage Envy, Hand & Stone Franchises Turn to Lincoln Tech
Massage Envy is one of the fastest growing spa service providers in the country. With more than 1,100 locations spanning nearly all 50 states, and with more Americans turning to massage than ever before, this is a great time to start a career in Massage Therapy. And along the I-95 corridor from Boston to Philadelphia, Lincoln Tech is a great place to train and connect with industry hiring managers.
One of the most popular places to launch your Massage Therapy career is a Massage Envy franchise. Many franchise owners in Massachusetts and Rhode Island turn to the two Lincoln Tech Massage therapy programs located in Somerville, Massachusetts, and Lincoln, Rhode Island for candidates to meet their team’s staffing needs. The new Massage Therapy training program at the Moorestown, NJ campus will assist Massage Envy locations in New Jersey and Pennsylvania – where employment in massage careers is projected to grow more than 25% by 2026* - in growing their teams.
“We love our Lincoln Tech grads because they [come to us] with a clear sense of the challenges and opportunities awaiting them,” says Amy B. Stone, a Massage Envy Regional Talent Scout for the Massachusetts Region. “They’ve acquired all the hard and soft skills they need to succeed. Lincoln Tech’s Massage Therapy graduates contribute to our growing success.”
Regional Recruiter David Axelrod, who scouts Connecticut, Rhode Island, Westchester County (NY) and parts of lower Massachusetts, says Massage Envy is “is proud to welcome Lincoln Tech graduates as team members.”
“Lincoln Tech’s graduates are reflective of the quality education they receive and the skills they acquire through both classroom and clinical settings,” Axelrod explains. “Lincoln Tech graduates have a strong foundation upon which they can foster the growth of a successful career.”
Lynn Garvey is Massage Envy’s Manager of Service Development for Rhode Island. “We love Lincoln Tech grads,” she explains. “They’re well-prepared when they come to us; they’re professional, they’re ready to work and they give an awesome massage. And they consider Lincoln Tech to be their home.”
In recent years, Lincoln Tech graduates have gone on to launch careers at Massage Envy locations in Lincoln, East Greenwich, and Providence, Rhode Island, as well as Walpole, Framingham, and other Massachusetts sites.
Even outside of the Massage Envy brand, hiring managers in the field know and trust the Lincoln Tech name. One New Jersey facility – Hand & Stone in Mullica Hill, just about half an hour from the Moorestown campus – is owned by a Lincoln Tech graduate. “Our owner speaks very highly of Lincoln Tech’s program,” says Manager Nicole Narciso. She notes that the industry’s fast growth is leading to a hiring crunch at spas like Hand and Stone. “The demand is very high for Massage Therapists. We are constantly growing. This is definitely a great career – the hours are very flexible, earning potential can be very high, and every day is different and exciting.”
“I wouldn’t look anywhere else for solid, knowledgeable, motivated, and enthusiastic massage professionals,” says Andrea E. Carreira, CLMT. Andrea, a 2010 Lincoln Tech graduate, operates EmBody Massage and Wellness, LLC. in Cranston, Rhode Island. “Each time I work with a new Lincoln Tech graduate, I’m impressed with how the instructors continue to upgrade and evolve the curriculum to make the program better, while keeping up with current trends in the industry.”
