Massage franchise opens in Newport Beach

Massage Envy, a national membership-based massage therapy franchise, opened a 2,650 square-foot location in Newport Beach last week, according to a news release.

The franchise in Westcliff Plaza at 1052 Irvine Ave. has 11 treatment rooms, and day and night hours.

"Most people will get a massage while on vacation or when visiting a spa, but one massage won't solve the problem of today's active lifestyles," said owner Stephen Karson in a prepared statement. "Regular treatment can reduce stress, increase circulation, lower blood pressure, help manage pain or recover from injuries, and much more."

Massage Envy offers Murad facials and multiple types of massage, including Swedish, deep tissue, sports and prenatal.

The Scottsdale, Ariz.-based franchise has more than 660 locations nationwide.
