SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Aug. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Massage Envy Spa and the Arthritis Foundation have joined forces to host the fourth annual Healing Hands for Arthritis, a one-day national event to build awareness and raise funds to fight arthritis. On September 17, 2014, Massage Envy Spa South Florida will donate $10 from every one-hour massage or facial to the Arthritis Foundation. Since 2011, this one-day nationwide event, has raised over $2M for the Arthritis Foundation.
"There's no better way to give back than to treat yourself, a friend or family member to a relaxing and rejuvenating massage or facial," said Jerome Kern, Regional Developer of Massage Envy Spa South Florida. "We strongly encourage the South Florida community to come out on September 17 to help fight arthritis, a disease that affects 50 million Americans and is America's leading cause of disability."
To make an appointment for the Healing Hands for Arthritis event, contact your local South Florida area Massage Envy Spa by visiting http://www.massageenvy.com/regions/FL/Miami.aspx. Reservations are now being accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. All proceeds donated during Healing Hands for Arthritis will support the Arthritis Foundation's nationwide efforts to prevent, control and cure arthritis. Murad®, Massage Envy Spa's exclusive skin care partner, will donate 10 percent of all sales from their products sold at Massage Envy Spa locations during the event to the Arthritis Foundation. Additionally, Wyndmere and BioFreeze will donate 10 percent of all sales from their products from Massage Envy Spa locations.
"We are excited to partner with Massage Envy Spa to bring attention to arthritis. Healing Hands for Arthritis will provide support for arthritis education, research, advocacy and other vital programs and services," said Meagan Fulmer, chief development officer for the Arthritis Foundation. Massage Envy Spa and the Arthritis Foundation share a common understanding about the devastating effects of arthritis on the body and the potential for massage therapy to relieve and control certain symptoms. Massage therapy can play an important role in alleviating the pain and swelling caused by arthritis, improving flexibility and circulation and reducing stress and anxiety.
In addition to hosting Healing Hands for Arthritis, Massage Envy Spa is a national sponsor of the Arthritis Foundation's signature event, Walk to Cure Arthritis®. Massage Envy Spa owners from across the country have been and continue to have a presence at their local Walk to Cure Arthritis events to share information about the benefits of massage therapy, provide chair massages and support the Arthritis Foundation's mission.
