Las Vegas, NV - June 13, 2013 - (PR.com) - Massage Envy, the largest employer of massage therapists and estheticians in the United States, is pleased to announce that Heather Mattison has been named Massage Envy’s Regional Therapist of the Year for the Las Vegas/ Henderson Region. The award was presented at Massage Envy’s annual conference in Phoenix, Arizona on April 27, 2013.
Only 53 therapists are chosen for this award from more than 21,000 therapists in Massage Envy’s nationwide network. Mattison’s honor included airfare and accommodations at the JW Marriot Desert Ridge in Phoenix, a $300 stipend, and continuing education. She will also receive recognition in the trade publications Massage Magazine and Massage and Bodywork.
Mattison has been a massage therapist at the Galleria Massage Envy Spa in Henderson for more than two years. The single mother of two is a dedicated, hard-working employee who always finds time to represent Massage Envy in their local and national charitable affiliations, providing chair massages for events such as Healing Hands for Arthritis, the Las Vegas Marathon, The Great Santa Run, events with the City of Henderson Parks and Recreation Department, and the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. “We are incredibly proud of Heather, and she is so deserving of this honor,” said Galleria clinic owner Marissa Hawkins. “I went back and looked over her clients’ testimonials and saw that they all had a common thread. Heather listens to her clients, thoroughly, and addresses their needs, but goes beyond that, recommending exercises and wellness practices which continue for the client long after the massage session is over,” Hawkins continued.
More people than ever before are adding massage therapy as part of their health and wellness regimens. 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.
Today, a career in massage therapy offers incredible growth and creative employment opportunities including flexible work schedules, active and healthy work environments and sustainable incomes. Massage Envy is the country’s largest employer of licensed/registered massage therapists with more than 21,000 therapists providing over 250,000 massages every week.
