San Diego (PRWEB) October 06, 2011
Massage Envy, the pioneer and national leader of affordable and convenient massage and spa services, has recently entered into a partnership with the Arthritis Foundation. Massage Envy will host a special fundraising event on World Arthritis Day, October 12, 2011 to raise funds and awareness for the organization as well serve as a national sponsor of the Arthritis Foundation's 200 Arthritis Walk events.
"As a brand that has been built on the importance of a balanced lifestyle focused on wellness, we are proud to be partnering with the Arthritis Foundation to support their local San Diego as well as nationwide efforts," said Massage Envy Regional Developer Dennis Conklin. "Massage can play an integral role in pain management and achieving overall wellness for people with arthritis and all Americans. We look forward to raising not only awareness of this disease but also a lot of monies to help the San Diego Arthritis Foundation"
The 21 San Diego Massage Envy centers will be joining the 700 centers across the county and will come together for a one-day fundraising event on World Arthritis Day. On October 12, $10 from every one-hour massage and facial session will be donated to the Arthritis Foundation. Murad®, Massage Envy’s exclusive skin care partner, will also donate 10% of all sales of skincare products sold at Massage Envy Spa locations during the World Arthritis Day event. Massage Envy will also be working with the Arthritis Foundation to educate the public and provide resources and information about the benefits of therapeutic massage in helping alleviate the pain associated with arthritis.
Recent scientific research has 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 treatment to relieve painful symptoms of arthritis and fibromyalgia, improve circulation, increase joint flexibility, lessen depression and anxiety, improve sleep, and provide an overall sense of well-being. The experienced, professional therapists at Massage Envy centers design effective, customized massage treatments to address the individual needs of their members.
Massage Envy clinics have over 4,000 available appointments a month. They are open seven days a week and have 21 locations throughout San Diego from North County through South Bay to East County:
