According to the Arthritis Foundation website, “Massage Envy and the Arthritis Foundation are joining forces for the second annual Healing Hands for Arthritis, a one‐day national event to build awareness and raise funds to fight arthritis. On September 19, 2012, Massage Envy clinics nationwide will donate $10 from every one‐hour massage or facial to the Arthritis Foundation. Murad®, Massage Envy’s exclusive skin care partner, and Wyndmere also will donate 10 percent of all sales of skincare products sold at Massage Envy Spa locations during the event to the Arthritis Foundation.

Massage Envy 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. Message therapy can play an important role in alleviating the pain and swelling caused by arthritis, improving flexibility and circulation and reducing stress and anxiety.

Proceeds from the Healing Hands for Arthritis event will support the Arthritis Foundation’s efforts to fund life-changing research; fight for health care policies that could improve the lives of millions; partner with families to provide empowering programs and information; and ultimately, find a cure.

In addition to hosting Healing Hands for Arthritis, Massage Envy is a national sponsor of the Arthritis Foundation’s signature event, Arthritis Walk®.”
