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.
Over the last 10 years, Skin Essentials Med Spa & Hair Salon owner Kelly Davis has prettified more than 1,000 faces with the SofTap permanent-makeup technique. She sidesteps the racket and pain of traditional tattoo-machine methods to gently apply the pigment with a hand tool, giving her absolute control to craft a subtle lip shape or a seductively arched brow. Guests can find similar attention to detail in the spa's repertoire of other beautifying services, from simple mani-pedis to advanced exfoliation peels that obscure signs of aging. Injections of Botox or Restylane keep skin surfaces as smooth as a pancake, and full-body scrubs and masks treat the whole physique to ensure that even your Achilles' heel embodies a beauty that belies its vulnerability.
At EB's Relaxation Station, clients' needs are always the highest priority. Before each treatment, a licensed massage therapist discusses each client's goals so that she can customize her treatments. Post-session, the therapist makes a personalized plan for each customer to help maintain the comforting effects.
Beyond massages, EB's Relaxation Station offers a range of other spa services onsite. Those beautifying treatments include hairstyling, teeth whitening, spray tans, and laser hair removal.
An old Kurdish proverb states, "The flower of health blooms when all parts work together." Licensed massage therapist Raishym Bennett uses this as a guide for her bodywork, which is geared toward treating the body as a unit, rather than any of its individual parts. By blending focused pressure with heated oil and bio-freeze products, Raishym can address deeper aches at the source. Clients may also pair bodywork with indulgent add-ons such as aromatherapy and sugar scrub treatments.

The connections I make with my clients. I have met wonderful people along the years and made amazing friends. I also love the feeling of knowing I am responsible for alleviating someone's pain. And it is nice when my clients spoil me by bringing cakes, cookies, and gifts. It makes me feel special.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
