New, exciting wellness offer opening in Altrincham

It’s a case of ‘New Year, New You’ for the residents of Altrincham, with the announcement that The Massage Company is coming to town in February 2023.

Already highly successful in London, the Home Counties and the Midlands, The Massage Company Altrincham will offer people health, wellbeing, and positive lifestyle choices, with high quality massage at affordable prices.


Launching The Massage Company Altrincham is local resident, Gavin Hawthorn, formerly Chief Marketing Officer of sk:n Clinics. He believes that it’s the right offer at the right time:

“The Massage Company is a young, exciting business which really appealed to me. There are so many fabulous local facilities which focus on people keeping fit and healthy; this will be a great addition to Altrincham’s wellbeing offer. It’s been proven that regular high-quality massage can help improve people mentally and physically and be an essential part of a better and balanced life.”

The Massage Company was founded by Charlie Thompson, former Head of Health and Beauty at Virgin Active Group, and Elliot Walker, former Managing Director of Unilever brand, Murad. They believe that their latest franchise is destined to be a big success:

“From conception to competition, our franchise journey with Gavin has been exceptional. His customer knowledge and experience and expertise in this sector is unrivalled. Altrincham is a fantastic addition to our portfolio and with Gavin’s commitment to growth and expansion our vision is to open massage centres at the heart of local communities across the Northwest.”

Hawthorn believes that the new concept will be a real boost to a town centre that has reinvented itself in recent years; “Massage shouldn’t be an occasional expensive treat, or something you only have when you’re in pain. It can be a vital part of a better and balanced life and we can’t wait to open our doors. Altrincham is a great community, and we aim to play a very active role in and around the local area.”
