massage envy


Thursday, October 1st 2015 - All Day

Massage Envy recognizes the sacrifices that United States military members make every day and wants to honor those members and the volunteers who support military organizations. In order to help show our gratitude, we created Massage Envy Cares For Those Who Care: an opportunity for some deserving people in our community to experience the benefits of massage. On October 1, 2015 Massage Envy will begin to accept nominations via their Facebook page for one Asheville-area military member or volunteer who could benefit from the stress relief, relaxation and pain relief that massage therapy provides. If you know a member of the military or a military-related volunteer, you now have a chance to nominate that person to win a free 1-year membership to Massage Envy (consisting of twelve 1-hour monthly massages, including gratuity). To submit your nomination, visit the Massage Envy Spa – Asheville Facebook page and tell Massage Envy why you believe this special person should win a membership. Entries will be accepted October 1 through October 31, 2015. Winners will be announced November 5, 2015.
