SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Aug. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- From summer assignments to school supplies, the back-to-school season can be a stressful time for parents as they prepare children and teens for the new school year to start. Massage Envy Spa – with more than 80 locations in the Bay Area and Sacramento – has a proven solution for parents looking to bring balance to the frenzy of the season: massage therapy.
"A therapeutic massage can help frazzled parents regain balance and reenergize – even on the busiest of days," said Connie Choi, mother of three and co-owner of five Massage Envy Spa clinics in the Northern California region. "It's amazing how much a massage can relieve stress and improve relaxation."
Massage Envy Spa offers eight varieties of therapeutic massages, including Deep Tissue, Swedish and Trigger Point Therapy. Consistent massages – such as two or more per month – help:
- Reduce stress
- Lower blood pressure
- Increase relaxation
- Improve posture
- Improve circulation
- Manage pain or injury
Therapeutic massage is an important and affordable part of any individual wellness program. "Many of our clients have been referred by a health care provider who understands the mental and physical health benefits of massage," said Choi. "And although Massage Envy Spa offerings are affordable, some health insurance plans will actually cover the costs."
Choi especially recommends that first-timers give therapeutic massage a chance.
"Clients often remark that they wish they had started getting massages sooner," said Choi. "Massage Envy Spa is the perfect comfortable, welcoming place for anyone to have their first massage. Our experts will recommend the best type of massage based on the client's objective, whether it's for physical health improvements or simply to relax and enjoy some deserved relief."
