Scottsdale, Ariz. (Sept. 30, 2010) – Massage Envy, the nation’s largest massage-therapy provider and the largest spa chain in the U.S., began offering its new Choices program at its 633 locations this week. Choices provides four AromaTherapy options designed to relieve a variety of therapeutic needs including anxiety, headaches, emotional imbalance and insomnia; Deep Heat Relief Muscle Therapy is ideal for anyone who suffers from chronic pain or limited movement.

Massage Envy’s AromaTherapy options include:

  • Aches and pains. Specifically designed to promote circulation, this warming blend of clove, sweet birch, rosemary and cypress helps aid issue recovery after physical exertion.
  • Anxiety release. Known for their calming properties, lavender, chamomile and vetiver are combined with uplifting aromas of citrus and clary sage.
  • Lavender garden. English true lavender is used to both reduce pain and inflammation and act as a mild antidepressant and calming agent. Next, lavandin helps support the respiratory system, aids in natural detoxification and promotes restful sleep.
  • Mint and rosemary. This combination of mint oils and rosemary enlivens the mind and body. Peppermint is high in natural menthol, which aids in pain relief and cools the body while increasing circulation. 

Massage Envy’s Deep Heat Relief Muscle Therapy is ideal for anyone who suffers from chronic pain or limited movement due to athletic training or repetitive motion. The massage enhancement includes targeted work in three key areas: back and neck, legs and feet, or arms and hands. It includes warm towel compression to help relax muscles, therapeutic heating oil to provide a warming sensation and let the therapist work deeply in the muscles, and a cooling gel which releases tension, decreases pain and invigorates muscles.

“We’re pleased to offer these fantastic new options to our customers,” said Massage Envy Chief Marketing Officer Susan Boresow. “Combined with our other customized therapeutic massage offerings, AromaTherapy and Deep Heat Relief Muscle Therapy will further tailor each person’s massage experience to their needs.”

For members and first-time guests, the cost to add AromaTherapy to a massage session is $10, while adding Deep Heat Relief Muscle Therapy is an additional $12. For more information on the Choices program, visit
