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.
Massage Envy Urbana
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:
- Apply steam on the face & neck area
- Cleanse eyes & lips
- Cleanse the face & neck twice
- Tone the face & neck
- Analyze the skin under the mag lamp
- Customized mask & face massage
- Neck & decollete massage
- Apply protective products
- Apply moisturizer with SPF
- Make individualized product recommendations
Our faces felt rejuvenated!
