Universal Companies Expands Web Presence With Site Designed for Massage Professionals

For over 25 years leading spa supplier Universal Companies has provided products and ideas to the spa market, one of the largest employers of massage professionals. Now the company has gone live with an exciting new website developed specifically for massage professionals. The website, www.universalmassagepro.com, offers a wide variety of quality professional products at great prices, as well as tools and tips to help increase the massage professional's client base, build customer loyalty, and enhance revenue.

"We respect the contributions massage professionals make to our industry," Universal Companies Founder and Chairman Marti Morenings explains, "and we believe that they will play an even bigger role in the future as spas, resorts, alternative, and traditional health care therapies continue to merge together. We've researched and studied their challenges, and we want to help them grow as health care professionals. Universal Companies can provide massage professionals with ideas that will not only help them meet their clients' needs, but that help them become more successful as they build their practices into the future."

Rebecca Weider, Universal Companies' Director of Technology, was instrumental in the development of the new website. She joined Universal in April 2009 and oversees e-commerce solutions and internal enterprise applications. Ms. Weider holds a B.S. degree in Finance from The University of New Orleans. Prior to joining Universal Companies, she held leadership positions in the travel, banking, and petro-chemical industries.
