Massage Envy locations in Massachusetts are proud to announce their participation in this year’s annual Healing Hands for Arthritis Event. On September 19th, all Massage Envy clinics in the state of Massachusetts will be donating $10 from every massage to the Arthritis Foundation. In 2011, this nationwide event helped raise $500,000 dollars for the Arthritis Foundation.

Reservations for Massage Envy clinics in the Boston area are now being accepted on a first‐come, first‐serve basis. All proceeds donated during Healing Hands for Arthritis will support the Arthritis Foundation’s nationwide efforts to prevent, control and cure arthritis. In addition to the donations through massage, Murad®, Massage Envy Spa’s exclusive skin care partner, will donate 10 percent of all sales from their products sold at Massage Envy Spa locations during the event to the Arthritis Foundation.

Massage Envys in the Boston, Massachusetts area hope to see everyone from the community come out to their centers on October 12th for World Arthritis Day to support the Arthritis Foundation. Massage Envy hopes guests will join in to support a foundation that helps the millions of Americans living with arthritis have an improved quality of life.

To make an appointment, contact your local Massachusetts Massage Envy today.
