Spa concept contributing to company’s rapid growth
Scottsdale, Ariz. (April 9, 2010) – Massage Envy, the nation’s largest massage therapy provider and the largest spa chain in America, opened its 100th Massage Envy Spa® location in Minneapolis, Minnesota. This is the first Massage Envy Spa to open in Minnesota, joining the 12 Massage Envy therapeutic massage clinics already located in the state. This impressive milestone of Massage Envy’s 100th Spa location comes on the heels of the company recently announcing it performed its 20 millionth massage at the Fairfield, California, clinic.
Massage Eny Spas boast an exclusive partnership with Murad® Inc., known globally as a pioneer of the clinical skin-care movement. The Massage Envy Spa concept offers guests Murad® healthy skin-care treatments as well as rejuvenating massage therapy administered by professional estheticians and massage therapists.
“In 2005, Minnesota was the first state in the upper Midwest to open a Massage Envy and they have been well received in this area ever since,” says Gary Meyers, who is both the owner of the 100th Massage Envy Spa and regional developer of Massage Envy in Minnesota. “I couldn’t be more proud of our brand and the fact that we are constantly searching for the best business practices and products for our customers. Massage Envy Spa and the partnership with Murad is a quintessential example of this goal.” Meyers also attributes the company’s success to the overall culture, commitment to the wellness industry and the combined support of fellow franchisees and the corporate team.
Massage Envy continues to expand across the U.S., offering affordable, convenient massages to clients in 42 states. After exclusively testing and refining the concept in Southern California in 2007, Massage Envy began opening and converting clinics to the Spa concept in June 2009.
“The Massage Envy Spa concept has surpassed our expectations,” said Massage Envy CEO David Humphrey. “In a down economy, growing to 100 spas so quickly makes clear that our educated consumers see Massage Envy as providing affordable, convenient and professional services that genuinely promote health and wellness.”
Massage Envy Spa offers both healthy skin-care treatments and stress-relieving massage therapy. Treatments are available at convenient times, including weeknights and weekends. With Massage Envy Spa, guests can restore and strengthen the health of their skin with a revitalizing facial as well as relieve stress with a customized massage.
