Massage Envy®, a leading provider of professional, convenient and affordable massages, is introducing hot stone massage therapy just in time for the holidays.

All 19 Massage Envy Front Range locations are now featuring Hot Stone Envy, a new signature services and a type of massage that incorporates hot stones to reap additional therapeutic benefits.

Hot stone therapy has the potential to ease tension and reduce muscle stiffness while enhancing circulation and increasing metabolism. Each 90-minute Hot Stone Envy session features the strategic placement of smooth, water-heated stones at key points on the body to allow for deeper relaxation of the muscles. Massage Envy’s professional massage therapists, who have undergone special training programs to be equipped to deliver this new service, incorporate the hot stones into a customized massage that creates an overall healing and relaxing experience.

The cost of a 90-minute Hot Stone Envy massage is $78.00 for members and $130.00 for non-members.

“At Massage Envy, we are always seeking to find additional therapies and relaxation techniques for our clients. Hot stone therapy is rapidly gaining popularity based on its ability to bring deeper muscle and tissue relaxation, which in turn releases more toxins and ultimately improves circulation. Many clients enjoy this technique based on the results it affords them. We are pleased to bring Hot Stone Envy to clients at a value price that makes it easy for them to enjoy this experience as well as share it with others,” said Larry Reiff, regional franchise developer for Massage Envy Colorado and owner of the Highlands Ranch Massage Envy clinic.

Hot stone therapy has proven ideal for treating muscle aches, back pain, stress and anxiety, poor circulation, rheumatic and arthritic conditions, fibromyalgia, insomnia and depression.

Massage Envy’s $49.00 monthly membership includes a one-hour massage therapy session. Additional one-hour massage sessions can be purchased during that same month at a member rate of $39.
