On Tuesday, September 14, 2010, Massage Envy will team up with Susan G. Komen for the Cure® to help win the fight against breast cancer by hosting Massage for the Cure. During this one-day event, Phoenix Massage Envy Centers will offer $49 one-hour massage therapy sessions, with $15 from each massage being donated directly to the Phoenix Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Additional donations will also be accepted and all proceeds collected will go directly into the local community. The event is open to the public and advanced reservations are recommended. However, walk-ins are welcome.
“Massage Envy is extremely proud to support Susan G.
