    The Space

    Upon walking into Massage Envy, you’ll find a zen space in the waiting room — including the sign that says, “Because this hour makes the other 23 more manageable” = truth. Anyone who’s ever gotten a massage knows that there’s an undeniable feeling of “excitement” that you’ve scheduled an hour to yourself to relax and rejuvenate, and Massage Envy does just that.

    There’s a desk to the left and a large waiting room to the right. In the waiting room, there’s tea, snacks {this time they had Chex mix, but sometimes it’s cookies/pretzels!}, and water. After you check in and fill out any iPad about your massage preferences and pain points, your masseuse will come get you in the waiting room {so arrive early to do this!}.

    The Massage

    Fernando was the masseuse for the massage, and he was specifically trained in more of a clinical massage {complete with stretching and trigger points}. The verdict? It. Was. Amazing. So relaxing and rejuvenating — and you can tell he’s a very talented masseuse that knows a lot about knots, trigger points, and anatomy. Of course, this was our experience with him specifically, and every clinician varies on pressure, pain issues, and type of massage you’d like, but if you’re looking for an intense massage where you’re stretched, pulled, and rubbed down from head-to-toe, he’s your guy.

    In the treatment room, the beds are heated and the lights are dim. It’s really not hard to relax, promise. One word to the wise: Opt for a 90-min massage if you can squeeze it in; totally worth the extra 30 minutes, because after the first 50 you’ll find you’re finally in that relaxation zone.

    The Facial

    If you sign up for the monthly membership for Massage Envy {which is ~$70/month for 1 service monthly = a STEAL}, you get either a massage OR a facial each month {and then extra charges apply if you up your treatment or decide to go for a longer massage}. What’s awesome about this plan is that even if you don’t get in for your treatment that month, your massages/facials accumulate and you can do several within the month if they’ve accumulated. So basically = monthly facials or massage, your pick.

    For the facial treatments, your esthetician will use Murad skin products which are formulated to help strengthen and optimize cells for vibrant and healthy skin. They also perform chemical peels, using professional grade PCA Skin products which are fantastic.

    Add-Ons

    Beyond your regular facial/massage, you can do $10 add-ons for either service, including aromatherapy and essential oils. You can also enhance your experience with an exfoliating hand or foot treatment, as well as an anti-aging eye treatment.

    Pricing

    Every masseuse and esthetician is different, so try out a few {and ask the front desk to give you tips on who would be a good masseuse match for your massage prefs — they’re very helpful!}. If you become a member, you can transfer a session to a friend for $10 {the only catch — you won’t be able to transfer to the same person again for 6 months}. All in all, an uptown gem that helps you on your road to self-care on the reg. The best thing you could do? Get a massage, then a facial — it will be two hours well spent {speaking from experience} and the perfect way to unplug for a bit.
