Today, Soothe, the leading marketplace for wellness, announced a new exclusive partnership with Woodhouse Spas, a high-end luxury day spa franchise that brings a resort experience to a neighborhood setting, to provide additional professional staff to Woodhouse franchise locations. Woodhouse Spas’ 75+ locations across 22 states will now be able to offer available shifts to licensed massage, esthetician, cosmetology, and nail tech providers via the Soothe platform. This partnership will allow Woodhouse Spas to continue its rapid growth while maintaining a consistent, high-quality experience across their locations.
Providers will be able to accept shifts at their local Woodhouse Spa via the Soothe Pro app. Meanwhile, Woodhouse Spa management can continue to meet the growing needs of its clients and generate more income while maintaining its commitment to incredible customer service.
Recent data from the International Spa Association (ISPA) indicated that 58% of current spa-goers visited a spa for the first time ever in the past two years, and 39% of spa-goers reported that they visit the spa more often now than before the pandemic. Yet their 2022 U.S. Spa Industry Study estimated that there are currently 45,000 job vacancies across the spa industry, including 29,000 for massage therapist positions, compared to 17,310 massage therapist position vacancies in 2019.
“We’re excited to be partnering with Woodhouse Spas to help them meet their high demand and help fill in the gaps in the labor market,” said Soothe CEO, John Ellis. “Soothe’s marketplace platform provides flexibility for licensed providers to work during the hours that best suit them while seamlessly allowing spa and hospitality businesses to reach a larger pool of talent and meet their customers’ needs. It’s a win-win for everyone.”
