Massage Envy is joining forces with the Arthritis Foundation to host Healing Hands for Arthritis. This annual one‐day national event builds awareness and raises funds to find a cure for arthritis.
On Sept. 19, all 22 Puget Sound area Massage Envy clinics and spas will donate $10 from every one‐hour massage or facial to the Arthritis Foundation, which raised nearly $500,000 last year. Renton has one Massage Envy location at The Landing. In addition, the and Shoreline locations will offer those living with arthritis a free one-hour massage session.
“We strongly encourage the Puget Sound area community to come out on September 19 to support this great cause,” said Barney Nelson, Regional Developer for Massage Envy in Washington state, in a press release. “Arthritis affects 1.3 million people in our state, including 6,100 children and you can help fight this disease by treating yourself, a friend or family member to a relaxing and rejuvenating massage or facial.”
To make an appointment for the Healing Hands for Arthritis event, contact a local Massage Envy by visiting the Massage Envy web site. 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. Additionally, 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.
“Partnering with the Arthritis Foundation was a natural fit, as we both a share a common understanding about the seriousness of the disease and the potential power of massage therapy to relieve certain symptoms,” said Nelson in the release. “Regular massage therapy provides several health benefits, including stress and pain relief, which is something nearly everyone can benefit from.”
