Dallas, TX–March 24, 2010/– March 30 is recognized as I am in Control Day—a day for individuals to assess their lives and regain control. People traditionally mark the day by spring cleaning, organizing their office or starting a new exercise program. Massage Envy suggests massage therapy as an easy and affordable way to regain control through reducing stress.

I am in Control Day was born from the chaos surrounding the events of March 30, 1981, when President Ronald Reagan was wounded in an assassination attempt. Secretary of State Alexander Haig stepped up to the plate amidst the confusion, stating “I am in control here.” The quote was taken out of context and many believed Haig incorrectly interpreted the U.S. Constitution regarding the presidential line of succession. While uproar surrounding the quote eventually led to Haig’s resignation, the quote is seen in a much different light today. People now interpret it as a call to action to get their lives under control despite seemingly uncontrollable circumstances.

Massage therapy helps provide a sense of control by reducing stress levels and promoting ongoing stress management to make individuals better equipped to handle life issues. Additionally, massage therapy promotes relaxation to improve mental outlook, ongoing stress management and better handling of high-pressure situations.

“Massage therapy offers a reset button for the mind and body that clears the clutter caused by stress,” says Lance O’Pry, Dallas/Fort Worth regional developer for Massage Envy. “After a massage therapy session, people find they are better equipped to handle any problem or task at hand.”

At Massage Envy, an introductory one-hour massage session (a 50-minute massage and time for consultation and dressing) is just $39. Members can enjoy a one-hour massage session every month for just $49 plus additional visits throughout the month at reduced prices. Or, for only $10 more, individuals can enjoy a one-hour healthy skin facial utilizing Murad skin-care products at participating locations.
