Massage Envy Spa® Announces One Millionth Facial
Fort Worth, TX Member Awarded One-Year of Free Facials & Supply of Murad® Skincare Products
Scottsdale, Ariz. (May 22, 2012) - Massage Envy, the pioneer and national leader of professional, convenient and affordable massage and spa services announced today that the company has performed its one-millionth facial. The recipient of the Anti-Aging Facial was Harriet Haun, a member at the Massage Envy Spa located at 3100 Texas Sage Trail in the Alliance Town Center in Fort Worth, Texas. To mark this significant milestone, Massage Envy and Murad® have awarded Haun with complimentary facials for one year as well as a one-year supply of Murad skincare products.
The Anti-Aging Facial, which is designed to produce vibrant, younger-looking skin and reduce fine lines and wrinkles, incorporates concentrated glycolic acid for maximum exfoliation. Additionally, the treatment combines a unique patented blend of antioxidants, anti-inflammatory agents and hydrators that dramatically improve the skin's texture, tone and appearance.
"I feel so blessed to be the one-millionth facial winner and this couldn't have come at a better time in my life," said Haun. "Raising four children, including a 20-month old baby, I rely on Massage Envy for a retreat from my daily stress. I've been receiving the Murad facials on a more routine basis and just love how my skin looks and feels."
Innovation has been at the heart of Massage Envy since its inception in 2002 as the company continues to deliver on its mission to provide a pathway to wellness, well-being and worth through massage and skin care services. In 2007, the company launched the Massage Envy Spa concept to offer affordable healthy skin care beyond traditional massage therapy and established an exclusive partnership with global skincare leader Murad. Massage Envy Spa customers now benefit from facials such the Environmental Shield® Vitamin C, Clarifying Enzyme Acne, Anti-Aging and Sensitive Skin treatments designed by Dr. Murad, one of the world's foremost leaders in skin health.
"We are honored to be a part of this milestone and elated to help Harriet, such an admirable and incredible woman, on her road to wellness," said Sherri Martin, Dallas/Fort Worth area director on behalf of Massage Envy. "Our facial business has grown by leaps and bounds since we first introduced our partnership with Murad. Both our members and guests recognize the many positive aspects to receiving facials on an ongoing basis."
The Fort Worth Massage Envy Spa in the Alliance Town Center is owned by Sanjeev Khanna, Ambika Khanna and Govind Agrawal of GovSan Holdings, the largest franchisee group in the Massage Envy System with 17 clinics open to date.
