Massage Envy and Others Team Up With the Arthritis Foundation for Healing Hands for Arthritis

Arthritis is the leading cause of disability in the
United States, affecting 1 in 5 Americans.
According to the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA), regular massage therapy works wonders for clients with arthritis. Regular massage patients have reported not only diminished pain, but also increased activity levels. With this information in mind, Massage Envy Spa has joined up with the Arthritis Foundation for a one-day national event called Healing Hands for Arthritis, to build awareness and raise funds to fight arthritis.

The 37 Massage Envy Spa locations in the greater Chicago area will donate $10 from every 1-hour massage session or facial performed on September 17, 2014 to the Arthritis Foundation. All proceeds donated during the Healing Hands event will support the Arthritis Foundation's efforts to prevent, control, and cure arthritis nationwide. In addition to the donations collected from services performed on September 17, Murad, Wyndmere Naturals, and Biofreeze have all announced they will donate 10% of all sales of their products sold at Massage Envy Spa locations during the event.

This is a great event to promote the potential for massage to relieve and control arthritic symptoms, as well as further public understanding about the devastating effects of arthritis!
