“We are thrilled to open Massage Envy’s first clinic in Hawaii and excited to help residents of Oahu discover the many health and wellness benefits of massage therapy,” said Nate McFarland, franchisee and regional developer of Hawaii. “We look forward to serving the local community with our quality, affordable massage and facial treatments and monthly memberships.”

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.

Massage Envy Spa locations also offer facials designed by Dr. Murad, the leader in skincare science. Customers can choose from four different Murad® Healthy Skin facials including Environmental Shield® Vitamin C, Clarifying Enzyme Acne, Anti-Aging and Sensitive Skin. A variety of Murad products are also available for purchase at Massage Envy Spa locations and make great gifts.

“With our very first clinic opening in Hawaii and just last month performing our 50 millionth massage experience – this has been such a tremendous growth year for our Massage Envy franchise partners,” said Dave Crisalli, president and CEO of Massage Envy. “It is abundantly clear that more Americans all over the country are realizing the priority that wellness plays in relieving everyday stress and pain. The Pearl City Massage Envy on Oahu symbolizes the deep focus all of our franchise partners have on enriching the communities they serve.”

In 2011, Massage Envy formed a partnership with the Arthritis Foundation to raise awareness and funds to support the organization’s mission to prevent, control and cure arthritis. In total, Massage Envy has raised more than $1 million in two, one-day Healing Hands for Arthritis events. The brand is also as a national sponsor of the Arthritis Foundation’s 250 Arthritis Walk® events around the country, where local Massage Envy owners share information about the benefits of massage therapy, provide chair massages and support the Arthritis Foundation at their respective local walks. Massage Envy and the Arthritis Foundation share a common understanding about the devastating effects of the disease on the body and the potential for massage therapy to relieve and control certain symptoms.
