Massage Envy Spa, a provider of professional, convenient and affordable therapeutic massage and skin facials, is celebrating its grand opening at The Avenue Viera. Officially opened in early November 2012, Massage Envy Spa Viera continues the Massage Envy tradition of providing great spa services with the opening of its 13th location in Central Florida.

The state-of-the-art 2,500 square-foot spa has a total of 10 therapy rooms, including two facial spa rooms and a tranquility room.

“Massage Envy continues to grow thanks to its affordable massage options and proven benefits to our clients’ wellness,” says Adam Toporek, regional developer for Massage Envy in Central Florida. “We are excited about opening our first Massage Envy Spa in the Viera/Melbourne area and are pleased to have an experienced ownership group represent our national brand in the area. We’ve had a lot interest in Massage Envy from Brevard County over the years, and we are happy to finally join such a great community.”

Studies from well-recognized institutions, including the Touch Research Institute at the Miami School of Medicine, Mayo Clinic, Boston Medical Center and Yale University, continue to prove the physical and emotional benefits of even a single therapeutic massage session, including improved circulation, increased joint flexibility, improved posture, release of chronic muscular tension and pain, improved sleep and concentration, lessened depression, relieved symptoms of arthritis and improved condition of the skin.

As the number of proven health benefits grows, so do the number of Americans who turn to Massage Envy for a more balanced lifestyle. At Massage Envy Spa Viera, every massage is customized to fit one’s particular needs, with professional massage therapists who can help determine the best massage, with options including Swedish, deep tissue, sports, cranial sacral and prenatal.

Today, Massage Envy has more than 800 locations in 45 states and is the largest employer of licensed/registered therapists performing over 13 million services annually. The company is also consistently named one of the top franchises by leading publications including Inc. and Entrepreneur. The franchisor credits Massage Envy’s success to the franchisees who truly understand the needs of their members and guests and consistently deliver valued services and products across the U.S.

“The Viera community has welcomed us with open arms, and we are proud to be part of this wonderful community. We have already created 15 new jobs in the community, mostly full-time, with a total of 40-plus employees projected by mid 2013,” says Tomer Taggart, owner of Massage Envy Spa Viera. “We are thrilled to be able offer our members and guests’ affordable healthy skin facials and customized therapeutic massages and we invite everyone to come visit us and experience what Massage Envy Spa Viera has to offer.”
