“Massage can play an integral role in pain management and achieving overall wellness,” says Gary Meyers, regional developer. “We are excited about the opportunity to share the benefits of massage therapy with the Arthritis Foundation and support the Walk to Cure Juvenile Arthritis both nationally and here in the Twin Cities.” https://www.facebook.com/MassageEnvyTwinCities.
Arthritis is a crippling disease that impacts more than 50 million adults and almost 300,000 children – or approximately 22 percent of the United States population. The disease costs the U.S. economy $156 billion a year in lost wages and medical expenses, and is a more frequent cause of activity limitation than heart disease, cancer or diabetes.
The funds Massage Envy Spa raises for Walk to Cure Juvenile Arthritis will go toward helping people with arthritis through life-changing information and resources, access to optimal care, advancements in science and community connections.
In 2011, Massage Envy Spa formed the partnership with the Arthritis Foundation to raise awareness and funds to support the organization's mission to prevent, control and cure arthritis. In addition to the Walk events, Massage Envy Spa has raised more than $3 million in four, one-day Healing Hands for Arthritis events. Massage Envy Spa and the Arthritis Foundation share a common understanding about the devastating effects of the disease on the body and the potential for massage therapy to relieve and control certain symptoms.
