NEW YORK, Sept. 19, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — XWELL, Inc. (Nasdaq: XWEL) (“XWELL” or the “Company”), an authority in wellness solutions for people on the go, continues to evolve its service offerings with the introduction of a proprietary stretching service for XpresSpa locations nationally. This new service complements the existing suite of massage services and taps into current technicians’ breadth of experience and skills.

The gentle stretch session was designed specifically for travelers, helping to maintain comfort and well-being when facing long-haul flights and extensive airport delays. The stretching service promotes several key health benefits, which are vital as people navigate hectic schedules.

“Stretch continues to grow as a modality for enhancing endurance and well-being. We now have the ability to draw on both the popularity and holistic benefits of stretch to aid the traveler’s journey. We know this new service will represent the best stretch of the trip for travelers,” said XWELL CEO Scott Milford. “As air travel enthusiasts and jet-setters prepare to embark on their next adventure, they often focus on packing their bags, checking flight itineraries and ensuring all necessary documents are in order. However, they often-times overlook the benefits of incorporating relaxing stretch into their travel routine to provide additional peace of mind as they make their way through the world.”

Some of the benefits of a facilitated stretching session for travelers include:

  • Enhanced blood circulation
  • Greater flexibility
  • Reduced muscle fatigue
  • Increased relaxation
  • Jet lag relief
  • Mental well-being

The service is being launched in 15 US locations with plans for expansion globally as technicians are available and trained to perform the service. Sessions will be offered in increments of 15 minutes, 20 minutes and 30 minutes, for the price of $45, $55 and $75 respectively. Technicians will work around any mobility issues or injuries for a pain-free, extra-soothing stretch.

Of note, the service will be supplemented by a new partnership between XpresSpa and Hyperice, the leading provider of innovative technology for the recovery, mobility and improved performance of muscles and joints. Through this collaboration, Hyperice’s Hypervolt 2 massage gun will be incorporated into the stretch protocol, marking the first time the relief tool will be available to all travelers – not just professional athletes.

XpresSpa will also be the first spa company to utilize the device’s newly launched heated attachment, providing guests with an even more relaxing stretch experience.

The new service and the partnership with Hyperice demonstrates XWELL’s ongoing reimagination of its brand, adding value for its guests without incurring additional hiring costs or needing to purchase additional retail space. It remains committed to expanding its offerings globally, addressing the pain points of travelers and lifting up other brands through partnerships.
