MAKE THIS THE YEAR OF “YOU” WITH THE HELP OF MASSAGE ENVY SPA®
- Kick Start 2014 with a Health and Wellness Plan from Massage Envy Spa -
Scottsdale, Ariz. (January 2, 2014) – With the holidays behind us, and a New Year just beginning, many of us are making New Year’s resolutions to improve our health and well-being. Statistics show that many of these goals get brushed aside, some even before the end of January. To ensure 2014 is the year of “YOU,” Massage Envy Spa, the pioneer and national leader of professional, convenient and affordable massage and spa services, is determined to keep you on the path to wellness.
“Each and every New Year many people eagerly start on the right track to a healthier lifestyle, but without a proper wellness plan, those goals can be hard to meet,” said Joe Luongo, chief operating officer for Massage Envy Spa. “If your goal in 2014 is to improve your overall wellness, regular massage therapy and skincare can play an important role in helping you achieve success.”
To kick off the New Year, the brand will launch its annual “New Year, New You” Facebook sweepstakes and award five lucky fans with a complimentary Massage Envy Spa gift card. The contest will run from Dec. 31 to Jan. 25 and users can enter by visiting Facebook.com/MassageEnvy.
With a membership to Massage Envy Spa, customers can choose from a variety of monthly 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. All sessions can be customized to provide relief to key areas that cause tension, stress or pain. Furthermore, AromaTherapy and Deep Muscle Therapy can be added to any massage to enhance the therapeutic experience.
Additionally, Massage Envy Spa offers facials designed by Dr. Murad, the leader in skincare science. With a monthly membership, customers can choose from four different Murad® Healthy Skin facials including Environmental Shield® Vitamin C, Clarifying Enzyme Acne, Anti-Aging and Sensitive Skin.
“Once the holidays are over and we return to our day-to-day routines, stress can inevitably set in,” said Luongo. “Treat yourself to a year of ‘you’ and take the time to focus on your own well-being with a relaxing massage or facial to kick off 2014.”
In 2011, Massage Envy Spa 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 Spa has raised more than $2 million in three, one-day Healing Hands for Arthritis events. The brand is also a national sponsor of the Arthritis Foundation’s 250 Arthritis Walk® events around the country, where local Massage Envy Spa owners share information about the benefits of massage therapy, provide chair massages and support the Arthritis Foundation at their respective local walks. Massage Envy Spa 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.
Open seven days a week, each Massage Envy Spa offers convenient times and locations to fit any guest’s needs. Visit Massage Envy Spa on Facebook or on Twitter.
