Seattle recipient awarded free one-year membership to help relieve stress and pain

Scottsdale, Arizona – More Americans are improving their quality of life with the help of Massage Envy. The pioneer and national leader of professional, convenient and affordable massage and spa services, has announced it has reached a significant milestone: performing its 50 millionth massage.

Patrick Quinn, a Massage Envy member at the Capitol Hill clinic in Seattle, Washington, and a local dancer, choreographer and software engineer, was shocked after the company surprised him with a complimentary one-year membership. Quinn was happy to share this special occasion with his therapist, Olivia Norton, who has been with the Capitol Hill clinic for nearly five years.

“I was so excited to hear that I was the 50 millionth massage recipient,” said Quinn. “I decided to become a Massage Envy member as an affordable way to relieve the tension and stress that occurs from dancing. I also have a mild case of scoliosis and massage has helped to develop and strengthen my muscles so that I am able to retain and improve my body’s range of motion. Without my membership, I wouldn’t be able to dance for 20 hours a week!”

“Patrick Quinn’s reaction to being the 50 millionth massage recipient really thrills us because it speaks to the core of what our brand does–provides a pathway of wellness, well-being and worth to millions of members and guests across the country,” said Dave Crisalli, president and CEO of Massage Envy. “Our franchise network works incredibly hard to deliver the best value in therapeutic massage and facial services.”

Massage Envy offers a variety of massage treatments at its more than 800 clinics, including Swedish, trigger point, deep tissue, sports, prenatal and geriatric. The proven benefits of routine massage include improved circulation, joint flexibility and posture, relief from pain and swelling caused by arthritis, reduced blood pressure, fatigue, migraine pain and stress, as well as improved sleep, concentration and overall sense of well-being. In addition, the 90-minute Hot Stone Envy™ features the placement of smooth, water-heated stones at key points on the body to allow for deeper relaxation of the muscles. Furthermore, AromaTherapy and Deep Muscle Therapy can be added to any massage to enhance the therapeutic experience.

“We are thrilled that one of our long-time members right here in Seattle turned out to be the recipient of the 50 millionth massage,” said Stephany Simonelli, Capitol Hill clinic manager. “Our experienced therapists strive to build strong relationships with each and every person that walks through our doors and this latest achievement is a reflection of Massage Envy’s commitment to its guests.”
