Today, it now has more than 25,000 professional providing services to 1.65 million members. Massage Envy franchises are located in 49 states, in 1,100 locations.

With America's affinity for relaxation and #TreatYoSelf days, it's no surprise this franchise scored the No. 43 spot on Entrepreneur's 2016 Franchise 500 list.
