MassageEnvy (also referred to as ‘ME’) Spa is a known name around the nation, and with good reason: the leading spa and wellness chain inaugurated its thousandth outlet in Pennsylvania in August. Despite the large number of branches, the Spa continues to uphold its tradition of providing high quality, professional and affordable services. The treatments on offer include a host of therapeutic massages and facials to suit various needs of customers, and membership options.
Ways to rejuvenate at MassageEnvy
A good massage can work wonders for your health and wellbeing. It can help you relax and de-stress, improves posture and blood circulation, and has positive effects on flexibility and breathing. In fact, therapeutic massages are often recommended for rehabilitation and regaining normal body function after an operation or injury.
The spa offers a variety of massages and facials with different benefits and effects. They include traditional fare such as a Swedish massage, deep tissue massage and sports massage, as well as exotic and specialized therapies such as hot stone massage, cranial sacral therapy, geriatric massage, pre-natal massage, trigger point therapy, reflexology and chair massage. Most centers also provide customers with facial treatments for different skin types and needs, and add-on therapies like Sugar Foot Scrub and Aromatherapy. The facial treatments use clinical skincare formulas by Murad for effective performance.
How to get more ME time?
For new customers, MassageEnvy offers a one-time introductory offer at a reduced price, following which you will have to pay the higher price. They have an elaborate membership program, with options such as Family Add-On (by which you can get memberships for your family at a discounted rate), free massages for referring a new member, and annual membership discounts for those serving in the military. There is also a ‘Freeze’ option by which you can suspend membership for one to six months. If you want to cancel your membership, you must relocate more than 25 miles from any ME clinic or furnish a letter from your doctor.
A glance at the facts of the franchise
The ME franchise is a burgeoning one. Launched in 2002, at a time when spas in the United States were a rarity, the chain of spas has come a long way in its twelve years. A huge success, it has expanded to a level that is quite a rarity in itself not only in the now-twenty-thousand-plus-strong spa industry of the nation, but also on a larger playing field – only 2.4% of all industries operate a thousand or more units. In 2013, the ME spa centers were privy to over eighteen million of the combined hundred and sixty four million visits to all spa establishments in the country.
This isn’t it for the spa chain, though. They are actively expanding their network in their quest for American wellbeing, and have opened many new outlets in the last few months, with new franchising partners. And despite having a strong presence in all but one state, they say there’s still a long way ahead.
