Massage Envy

The largest Massage Envy in the Valley just opened in Ahwatukee Foothills and the owners say they’re confident they can fill its capacity.

The new location at 4722 E. Ray Road, Suites 22 and 24, is almost double the space of the former Ahwatukee location at 3820 E. Ray Road. Owners Jon and Bonnie Brovtiz say they relocated to the new spot because it has more traffic and is more convenient for their clients.

“We’re already seeing a bigger demand in this area,” Jon said. “The last location did well and we’re confident we’ll do better in this one.”

The Brovtizs are not new to the business. They own eight locations in the Valley. They were customers themselves when Massage Envy first opened in 2002, and when they found out they could franchise their own they liked the idea.

Jon said he believes Massage Envy is unique because they were the first. The company now has 28 clinics throughout the Phoenix-metro area and more than 800 in the U.S. Members can use their memberships at any location and can often schedule same-day appointments. That company is proud of its ability to be flexible.

“Our therapists customize each session to the client’s specific needs,” Bonnie said. “We don’t have a certain signature massage they need to follow. They interview the client and find out why they’re here and what their needs are. Each massage is different and really tailored to help the client with whatever is troubling them at that time. Even for regulars, they usually find a favorite therapist and go back to them, but each time it’s different for the client.”

The new space boasts 18 individual rooms for massage and spa treatments. There are 19 massage tables total in 4,000 square feet.

Ahwatukee’s Massage Envy is a spa location so clients can also come in for signature Murad facials with a trained estetician. They’re also coming out with a new foot scrub in February.

Because of the increased size the clinic is looking to do some hiring. All Massage Envy therapists must be licensed and certified. Jon said knowing a number of different modalities and an outgoing personality are qualities they’ll look for. They are accepting resumes at
