    Local Massage Envy Owner Awarded National Franchisee of the Year
    Winner to launch a special promotion designed to help locals reclaim their physical and emotional well-being in the midst of the COVID Crisis.
    Scottsdale, AZ – Massage Envy, the largest provider of therapeutic massage and skin care services in the U.S., today announced Anthony Vidal as its “National Franchisee of the Year.” Vidal is the owner and operator of the Farmington, South Windsor, and West Hartford, Connecticut Massage Envy locations.
    According to Beth Stiller, CEO of Massage Envy, this award is an opportunity to recognize an exemplary franchisee within the Massage Envy network.  Stiller said Anthony and his team go beyond simply achieving operational excellence – this franchisee also leads the others on delivering on the company’s  brand promise of helping people feel their best.
    For Vidal, helping people achieve personal wellness is his life’s mission.  “This is a fiercely competitive industry – what sets you apart are your people.  They are the experience.  I have a team of 120 highly skilled therapists who have expertise in dozens of disciplines.  They know that every customer is unique and they are able to deliver experiences that meet the specific needs of each and every client.”
    “Knowing how important massage is to personal wellness has made the last six months really hard for our therapists,” Vidal said.  In March, according to the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), Internet searches for “panic” and “anxiety attack” hit an all time high1. “Research from the Mayo Clinic confirms that massage therapy is a great weapon against anxiety and depression.2  It is hard to be sidelined at a time when our customers have needed us the most.”  Vidal plans to share his success by offering customers a complementary service with their massage through October 31, 2020. 
    “It just feels like the right thing to do.  We can’t cure COVID, but we can help our customers find a level of health that might make them more resilient.”
    To accommodate demand, Vidal said his locations have extended hours of operation to ensure the most stringent sanitization and cleaning processes.  “Our clients see massage as a way of taking control of their personal well-being.  In recent months, we’ve all felt a little out of control.  It’s a privilege to help our clients take back their lives.”
