The folks at Massage Envy Spa South Florida recently sent over a gift card so I could try out the massage services. It’s a rough life, but someone has to take one for the team. They also sent a gift card for one lucky reader. Enter to win below.
I booked my appointment at the Aventura location (there are 38 in South Florida, and over 1,000 across the country). Naturally, the day I was going, there was a lockdown at several nearby schools, roads were closed and traffic was even worse than usual. I arrived for my appointment desperate for someone to work the traffic-induced kinks out of my neck.
The spa is a storefront, and so I (wrongly) expected it to be small. They have at least a dozen treatment rooms, a waiting room complete with a video of a fish tank, and an overall calm vibe. The massage therapist greeted me, brought me to a treatment room and asked a bunch of questions about injuries and aches and pains. I warned him that my back was in knots, and that no amount of pressure would be too great.I don’t think he expected it to be quite as bad as it was. I warned him.
The room is quiet, dark and complete with a heated massage table. If I had one of those at home I would never leave. Ever. It was so comfortable. The therapist was professional, and very, very good. He made it possible to turn my neck, and made it so my back actually felt good. It was an impressive showing.
Massage Envy does operate on a membership basis, although you can also buy one massage at a time. As I was leaving, the staff let me know what the different options were, but they were not too pushy or overly sales-y. All memberships include a monthly massage and come in 3, 6 or 12 month packages for $59.99/month. If you can commit to a monthly massage, it seems like a good deal to me. They also have a holiday special to make gift giving easy: get a free 1 hour massage with the purchase of three $75 gift cards. three gifts, and a gift for you, too!
