This week Massage Envy locations in the Washington, D.C metro area will be partnering with the Arthritis Foundation and kicking off the Healing Hands for Arthritis charity event. October 12th is World Arthritis Day, and Massage Envy will be an active participant to help raise funds and bring awareness for the Arthritis Foundation and their great cause. At each Massage Envy location, $10 from every massage or facials in Washington, D.C metro area will be donated to the Arthritis Foundation.
Currently, 50 million adults and 300,000 children in the U.S. alone suffer from arthritis. The Arthritis Foundation is the only nationwide non-profit health organization taking the lead and contributing efforts to control, prevent and help cure arthritis and related diseases. They have taken the measures necessary to inform and assist all of those in need by providing various community-based programs and offering services nationwide to help those living with arthritis to have a much less painful and much more promising lifestyle.
All proceeds from this one day event taking place this week on October 12th will be given to the Arthritis Foundation. The proceeds help fund education & research to find a cure for arthritis. Beyond raising money for the Arthritis Foundation, all Massage Envy centers consistently help those living with arthritis through massage therapy in Washington, D.C metro area. Massage therapy has been proven to help alleviate the troublesome symptoms associated with arthritis and fibromyalgia. Consistent massage therapy can also help relieve stress and provide overall well-being.
The Massage Envy franchises providing massage in Washington D.C metro 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.
