A Massage Palace & Spa moves to west side

WICHITA — A Massage Palace & Spa owner Laney Grady is moving her 2-year-old business from near Douglas and Grove to 900 N. Tyler near Central and Tyler.

“We had … two break-ins over there,” she says of her previous location. “It was … a really, really bad area as far as for business.”

Grady says the break-ins were seven days apart. In the first one, she says, all her electronics were stolen. Once she replaced them all, that’s when she says the second break-in occurred. Grady says her place was then trashed and had more than $30,000 in damage.

“The insurance company was like, look, if something else happens over there, we might not be able to cover it. It was that bad.”

The new space is 1,472 square feet.

Cory Harkleroad of KW Commercial and Rod Stewart handled the deal.

The business, which offers massage, facials and body treatments such as a body wrap, officially reopens on Nov. 1.
