Massage Therapy Can Enhance Sleep Quality, MASSAGE MagazineLeading Massage and Spa Franchise Celebrates Milestone at Fredericksburg, Virginia, Clinic

SCOTTSDALE, Arizona — Massage Envy Spa, a pioneer and national leader of professional, convenient and affordable massage and spa services, announced that the company has performed its three millionth facial, which took place at the Fredericksburg, Virginia, location. 

To mark this significant milestone, the lucky member who received the facial service was offered a one-year membership to Massage Envy Spa and a one-year supply of Murad skincare products, along with an autographed book from Dr. Howard Murad, M.D., one of the world’s foremost leaders in skin health.

“Performing our three millionth facial is a true testament to the growth of our facial business and partnership with Murad,” said Joe Luongo, chief operating officer of Massage Envy Spa. “We continue to witness a rise in facial services at our spas across the country because our members and guests are recognizing the benefits of a healthy skincare regimen. We’re excited to continue to help our customers improve the look and feel of their skin for years to come.”

Elise Pallen, an esthetician at the Fredericksburg clinic, performed the facial on Massage Envy Spa member Lori Reece. The clinic, which has been open since May 2006, is owned by Charles and Nubia Fisher. Reece was thrilled to receive the three-millionth facial and has already booked her next massage and facial appointments.

Innovation has been at the heart of Massage Envy Spa since its inception in 2002. In 2007, the company launched its spa concept to offer affordable, healthy skincare through an exclusive partnership with global skincare leader Murad. Massage Envy Spa customers benefit from four different facials, including Environmental Shield Vitamin C, Clarifying Enzyme Acne, Anti-Aging and Sensitive Skin treatments designed by Dr. Murad.

Today, with nearly 1,000 Massage Envy Spa locations in 49 states, the company is also the world’s largest employer of licensed/registered massage therapists, with more than 21,000 therapists and 3,000 estheticians providing 1.5 million services every month to a total of more than 1.5 million members.

In addition to facials, Massage Envy Spa offers a variety of massage treatments, 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. Other services that are part of Massage Envy Spa’s Enhanced Therapies menu include Aroma Therapy, Sugar Foot Scrub Therapy and Deep Muscle Therapy, which can be added to any massage to enhance the experience and stress relief.
