Named for the tools used in its signature service, Hand and Stone Massage and Facial Spa, 2907 S. Rochester Road, Rochester Hills, is open. The spa, which signed a lease in May, marks the third location for owner Sumit Bansal, who owns and operates Hand and Stone locations in Troy and Northville. Additionally, Bansal owns about a dozen Great Clips hair salons throughout the metro Detroit area. The recently opened massage and facial spa is his first entry into Rochester Hills. “We have over 200 employees, and we love the family feel. There is a lot of love in the family. More than half of our employees stay with us from day one and have more than five years with the company,” he said. “Life is good in hair.” Bansal said the entry into Rochester Hills was an easy decision. “It’s a beautiful city, and the clients are phenomenal. It’s a great destination.” Located in the Hampton Village Center, at E. Auburn and Rochester Road, the new spa is surrounded by a variety of shops, stores and restaurants. All spa rooms have individual sound and lighting controls with high quality heated tables covered in crisp linens and a plush blanket. Massage services include Swedish massage, hot stone massage, Himalayan salt massage, sports massage, deep tissue massage, and oncology massage. Facial services include classic facials, detox facial, LED skin phototherapy, men’s facials, Nuface Microcurrent Therapy, a rejuvenating facial, sensitive skin facials and teen facials.
