SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Nov. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Massage Envy has a new tropical paradise to call home. Opening today on the island of Oahu in Hawaii, local residents now have a spa to de-stress and relax, right in their own backyard. Located in Pearl City at 1000 Kamehameha Highway in the Pearl Highlands Center, Massage Envy offers a variety of therapeutic massage treatments and Murad® Healthy Skin facials to keep its members and guests on the path to wellness.
"Our doors are open and we are so excited to invite the community to check out our new clinic," said Nate McFarland, regional developer of Hawaii. "Until now, residents of Oahu had to travel to the tourist areas for a massage and pay a premium price. Our goal is to help our neighbors achieve health and wellness with our quality, affordable massage and facial treatments and monthly memberships."
The Pearl City Massage Envy will host a blessing led by Kahu Kurt on Dec. 15, 2012. The public is encouraged to tour the new clinic, meet the team, and enjoy pupus and refreshments. Additionally, a portion of all proceeds on this day will be donated to the Arthritis Foundation, Massage Envy's national philanthropic partner, to support the organization's mission to prevent, control and cure arthritis.
"Nate and I are thrilled to open the first Massage Envy in Hawaii and we hope that our brand and our vision - Better lives. Better 'ohanas. Better communities. A better world...through our hands - will be embraced wholeheartedly by local residents," said Lari Jarvis, regional developer of Hawaii. "We plan to create about 25 jobs within the first year of operation and truly look forward to serving the community."
