Massage Envy Urbana: Maintaining Total Body Wellness

Recently Terri and I were contacted by Bess Burnett, owner of the brand new Massage Envy in Urbana, Maryland.

Bess asked us if we would like complimentary massages and facials in exchange for an honest review of Massage Envy.

Our response? “Well, let us think about it……Um! Yes please!”

After our visit with Massage Envy Urbana, we were quickly reminded that getting a massage, thankfully, isn’t a luxury anymore; it’s truly a way of maintaining total body wellness.

Getting to know Bess and the staff at Massage Envy Urbana was so refreshing!

They are all so friendly, down to earth and knowledgeable.

We also loved the fact that at Massage Envy, you can cater your massage or facial to your individual needs, such as adding enhanced therapies like muscle therapy, aromatherapy, exfoliating hand or foot treatments, & anti-aging eye treatment.

They even have a couples massage room in case you’d like to bring your significant other, a friend, your Mom, or in our case, your sister, to enjoy the benefits with you!

Our facials were so enjoyable and invigorating that Terri and I both asked our Esthetician to write down exactly what she did:

  1. Apply steam on the face & neck area
  2. Cleanse eyes & lips
  3. Cleanse the face & neck twice
  4. Tone the face & neck
  5. Analyze the skin under the mag lamp
  6. Exfoliate
  7. Extractions
  8. Customized mask & face massage
  9. Neck & decollete massage
  10. Apply protective products
  11. Apply moisturizer with SPF
  12. Make individualized product recommendations

Terri and I got to take home a 3 pack of Massage Envy Urbana’s CyMe Masks.

I’ve already used the Moisturizing Foot Mask.

It’s fun to put the little slippers over your feet and relax for 30 minutes while the CyMe does it’s work.

Slip the masks off and your feet are so smooth!

  1. I just moved to Frederick a couple months ago and still feel sore from the move! While a massage would be awesome, I think I need a facial more. My skin has reacted so poorly to the water here, a little pampering for it would go a long ways!

    • April, You are the winner of the free one hour massage, facial, or total body stretch therapy! Congratulations! Please contact Bess Burnett at Massage Envy in Urbana @ (301) 321-3689. Enjoy!

  2. Hey! Big fan! I am entering this contest because I really need some TLC. I work nights and on my feet constantly. I also carry all my tension in my back and neck; when people rub my back they go “wow, you’re really need to relax.” Relaxing is actually impossible for me and it would be nice to have a professional touch. Thanks for doing these contests!

  3. I have a myriad reasons why I feel I should win ranging from working 50 hours/week most weeks but with no overtime to raising two fine young men who are now in college and doing so while raising them by myself with no child support in 8 years but there is ONE reason that stands out more than any other, by far: My younger son graduated from high school this past June. My ex-husband made a promise to not miss either child’s HS graduation (he lives in Colorado). I will give him points for honoring that promise and travelling back to MD. Upon his arrival the end of May, he stayed with a family member for ~ 3 weeks but he felt she was getting tired of his presence so he asked if he could stay with us–our two sons and ME, his EX-WIFE. As it was only going to be for two weeks and because I’m a nice ex-wife, I said that was fine. He was due to leave on July 11th. It is now September 6 and he is STILL HERE. I’m exhausted and I’m broke from him eating everything but not paying for anything. NOTHING would make me feel better than a massage. (Well, and him going back go Colorado but I don’t think you can help with that…)

  4. As much as I would love/ need some pampering I think my husband deserves it more.
    Working a full time job he always makes time to help with our children sports activities. He assist in coaching, field maintenance and cheering on the sideline, his nights and weekends are filled. He still finds time for household duties. I’m one lucky lady!

  5. I need a massage to rid my body from all the aches and pains that come with half marathon training while trying to maintain a full time job and be a mom to 3 teenagers!

  6. Ooohhh this sounds wonderful and I’m definitely overdue for some me-time!

  7. I need a massage because I am a full-time stay-at-home mom to 2 handsome boys. One is 8 and the other is 7 months old. It’s extremely rare that I ever get any time to myself, let alone relaxing time. I have never had a massage and have always wanted to get one but unfortunately our budget is tight and we cant afford extra luxuries. I would love to win this prize and finally get to experience a massage
