(May 6, 2009) Scottsdale, AZ – Massage Envy Limited, LLC, a national franchise of massage therapy clinics, recently unveiled their latest model, Massage Envy Spa. This enhanced model offers customized therapeutic facials and massage at discounted membership rates. Massage Envy clinics will begin converting to the new “Spa” model as early as June 2009. The company, who currently has 565 Massage Envy clinics located in 40 states across the country, made the formal announcement at their Annual Franchise Conference held last week in Phoenix, Arizona.

The franchisor has been testing the Massage Envy Spa concept in Southern California for the past 18 months. Both existing and new Massage Envy clinic owners have the ability to incorporate Massage Envy Spa into the current clinic model.

Massage Envy partnered with Murad International to create four exclusive signature facials: Environmental Shield Vitamin C, Clarifying Enzyme Acne, The Age Reform and Sensitive Skin. All facials are performed by educated and professional estheticians. These exclusive facials provide noticeable visible benefits, deeply cleanse and exfoliate, rehydrate and rejuvenate, and provide preventative measures against premature aging.

Murad International, founded by Howard Murad, MD., produces scientifically based product lines that offer therapeutic and effective results. Dr. Murad is one of the world’s foremost authorities on skin health. He is renowned for being at the forefront of the skincare revolution, has been honored for his work in the area of anti-oxidant/anti-aging skincare, as well as for establishing the medical spa concept.

“Massage Envy is committed to meeting today’s consumer wellness needs and this is just one example of that commitment,” says CG Funk, VP of Industry Relations & Product Development. “Through our exclusive national partnership with Murad, we are able to provide our members and guests with therapeutic, effective skin care services that are scientifically proven to benefit all skin types and conditions.”
