Jacksonville, FL September 14, 2011 – Massage Envy, the pioneer and national leader of affordable and convenient massage and spa services, has joined forces with the Arthritis Foundation to host Healing Hands for Arthritis, a one?day national event to build awareness and raise funds to fight arthritis. On World Arthritis Day, October 12, 2011, Massage Envy Jacksonville will donate $10 from every one-hour massage and facial to the Arthritis Foundation. Prices for facials and massages start as low as $39 for an introductory session.

“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 Sue Kowalewski, Massage Envy Regional Developer in Jacksonville FL . “We strongly encourage the Jacksonville community to come out on October 12th to help fight a disease that affects 50 million Americans and is actually our nation’s most common cause of disability.”

To make an appointment for the Healing Hands for Arthritis event, contact one of the 6 area locations at 904-821-ENVY (3689).  Reservations will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis.  All proceeds donated during Health Hands for Arthritis will support the Arthritis Foundation’s nationwide efforts to prevent, control and cure arthritis and related diseases.  Additionally, Murad®, Massage Envy Spa’s strategic skin care partner, as well as Wyndmere , Massage Envy’s Aromatherapy partnerwill donate 10 percent of all sales from their products sold at Massage Envy 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, the power of massage therapy to relieve certain symptoms, and what must be done to prevent, cure and control it,” said Kowalewski.

Over the past two years, Massage Envy has donated nearly $100,000 to fund clinical research related to the benefits of massage therapy. Recent scientific studies have found that massage therapy increases immune function, decreases stress levels and reduces recovery time in many medical conditions including arthritis.  With consumers visiting massage therapists at least 140 million times a year, it is evident that more Americans are turning to therapeutic massage to relieve the painful symptoms of arthritis and fibromyalgia, while improving circulation, joint flexibility, sleep patterns and an overall sense of well?being. The experienced, professional therapists at Massage Envy clinics can design effective and customized massage treatments to address the individual needs of any member or guest.
