Human Touch® Announces Partnership With Massage Envy® to Support Therapists and Enhance the Client Experience

Therapists, Members, and Guests Can Enjoy Complementary Chair Massage in Massage Envy Franchised Locations and Take Advantage of Exclusive Offers for At-Home Wellness Solutions

LONG BEACH, CA--(Marketwired - August 31, 2016) - Human Touch®, the U.S. market leader of innovative massage chairs, Perfect Chair® Recliners, and other wellness solutions, has announced plans to place its ZeroG® 5.0 Massage Chairs in select Massage Envy franchised locations across the country.

Also, as a commitment to helping massage therapists recover after providing a Wellness Massage service, they will be encouraged to use the chairs, as well as Human Touch Reflex6 Foot and Calf Massagers installed in break rooms, to rest and rejuvenate between appointments.

Members and guests also can use the chairs free of charge, complementing the hands-on care therapists provide. The chairs will offer therapeutic seating in select Massage Envy franchised locations' tranquility room, so clients can begin to relax before their appointment or extend the benefits of massage after their service.

"Regular massage helps us take care of our bodies with proven, lasting effects," said Beth Stiller, Chief Commercial Officer of Massage Envy. "This new program with Human Touch is especially important for therapists, who are compassionate caregivers, and who also need to take care of themselves. We believe the chairs will enhance the Massage Envy experience, and give therapists, members and guests another way to include massage in well-rounded health and wellness routine."

Massage Envy franchise owners can also sell discounted Human Touch massage products directly to their members for in-home use. These home sessions have been shown to enhance the benefits of regular, professional massage therapy sessions.

"Our new partnership with Massage Envy serves as a way to enhance their members' massage therapy sessions and the value of their membership," said David Wood, CEO of Human Touch. "Studies show that a large number of clients already enjoy the benefits of combining chair massage with professional massage. We're confident that Massage Envy members will discover these same results, allowing them to maximize their potential and feel their best."
