SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - March 4, 2013 // PRNewswire // - Whether it's your job, the daily grind or an intense workout that causes your feet to feel worn out, the best way to find relief is to give your feet some serious tender, love and care. Beginning today your toes will thank you with the launch of Massage Envy's new Sugar Foot Scrub Therapy. Ideal for reducing daily stress or the pain and discomfort caused by dry callused skin, a Sugar Foot Scrub treatment can be added to any massage session for only $10 as part of Massage Envy's Enhanced Therapies menu.
"Many of our members and guests often request that our therapists spend a little extra time massaging their feet, therefore we decided to take it one step further," said CG Funk, vice president of product development and industry relations. "With the help of our partner Bon Vital, we formulated a sugar foot scrub designed exclusively for Massage Envy customers which can enhance any massage and deliver the ultimate relaxation experience."
The scrub combines fortified sugar with jojoba, olive and safflower oils, and lavender essential oil. Massage Envy's specially designed formula contains extra fine sugar granules and less oil than a typical sugar foot scrub, allowing for easier absorption into the skin. The scrub cleans and exfoliates, removes dead skin cells, and soothes the surface of the skin while stimulating lymph flow and increasing circulation. Following the sugar scrub, a whipped Bon Vital Body Butter, which is blended with cocoa butter, Shea butter, beeswax and lavender oil, is also applied to add a hydrating protective layer to the freshly scrubbed skin.
The Sugar Foot Scrub is just one example of how Massage Envy is committed to helping customers keep their New Year's resolutions to improve their health and well being this coming year. With a membership at Massage Envy Spa, customers can choose from a variety of convenient and affordable massage and spa services, at its more than 850 clinics, including Swedish, Trigger Point, Deep Tissue, Sports, Prenatal and Geriatric, with the addition of the Sugar Foot Scrub available to add onto any service. 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.
Massage Envy Spa locations also offer facials designed by Dr. Murad, the leader in skincare science. Customers can choose from four different Murad® Healthy Skin facials including Environmental Shield® Vitamin C, Clarifying Enzyme Acne, Anti-Aging and Sensitive Skin. A variety of Murad products are also available for purchase at Massage Envy Spa locations and make great gifts.
In 2011, Massage Envy 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 has raised more than $1 million in two, one-day Healing Hands for Arthritis events. The brand is also as a national sponsor of the Arthritis Foundation's 250 Arthritis Walk® events around the country, where local Massage Envy owners share information about the benefits of massage therapy, provide chair massages and support the Arthritis Foundation at their respective local walks. Massage Envy 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.
