The meteoric growth of Massage Envy has led to more than 800 spa locations and a healthy share of limelight from printed media buzz to promotions on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and The Doctors . Its experts have kneaded more than 50 million backs using modalities that range from the gliding strokes of Swedish massage to the targeted pressure of deep-tissue massage. Although the spa treats a wealth of clients, each Massage Envy session is personalized to individual needs. While indulging in prenatal, hot-stone, or trigger-point-therapy massages, clients can also request the soothing mint and rosemary essential oils of aromatherapy or the addition of warming and cooling products that help decrease inflammation and ease pain.
In addition to staffing massage therapists, the spas employ skincare experts who wield Murad products for four kinds of facials. Clients can treat sensitive skin to mild exfoliation or opt for anti-aging facials with glycolic acid before attempting to order off the kids’ menu at a diner.
