About Massage Envy
At Massage Envy, we’re here for you every day of the week, morning and night, across the entire country. We are thousands of franchise owners employing more than 25,000 massage therapists, estheticians, and employees and every one of our franchisees consider it their job to be passionate in their support of your commitment to total body care: an integral part of everyone’s well-being journey.
That’s why we’ve made it our purpose, our guiding light, the reason we do what we do.
And with that in mind, we promise one thing:
We help you take care of you.
What We Believe
We believe that massages and facials aren’t a luxury; they are body maintenance, pure and simple. Regular massage and facial care goes a long way toward helping Massage Envy members and guests take care of themselves and manage the side effects of life.
How We Help
We are often credited as being the leader in accessible massage. Yes, the Massage Envy membership model has popularized the belief that massage can be convenient and affordable, but from the very start of our journey we have believed that there’s more to it than that. We may not have always talked about massage and skincare in this way, but these ideals have been at the core of our belief system from day one.
Massage Envy has been in the massage business since 2002 – longer than any other player in the industry – and now has over 1,000 franchised locations in 49 states. Because of that we have had the opportunity, through our franchisees, to deliver more than 90 million massages and 4 million facials to more than 1.65 million members. And the only reason we’ve been able to help that many people is due to the more than 25,000 therapists and estheticians at each franchised location who believe in their power to help people feel their best and who demonstrate their passion in what they do.
Who We Partner Up With
We’ve had some help along the way. Our exclusive partnership with the global leader Murad in skincare allows us to develop and offer proprietary skincare products and services that make a difference in people’s lives. And our collaborative work with the Arthritis Foundation helps find a cure for the millions of women, men and children who suffer from arthritis (the leading cause of disability in the U.S.) and provides body care to help them find relief and maintain their lifestyle.
Our Role in the Industry
We believe being a pioneer in any industry comes with the responsibility of leadership. We feel it’s important for Massage Envy members and guests to know where we stand on the safety and professionalism of our industry. To put it simply, there is nothing more important to us.
That’s why since 2002, when we set out to promote healthy lifestyles through massage and facial services, we’ve made it our priority to set the bar (a high bar) for standards in the massage industry.
What You May Not Know
We Choose Partnerships Carefully
We’ve chosen to establish partnerships with national organizations in the massage, esthetic and spa industries to support and promote the longevity of our profession.
Through Education & Training Solutions, who are approved by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork, we’ve developed the Massage Envy Behind Closed Doors training program. This training is a cutting edge program that instructs therapists on real-life situations in the therapy room, something that is not taught in most massage therapy schools. We require that each massage therapist and esthetician employed by our franchisees complete this training, along with three additional mandatory courses, every year.
