Trenton, NJ (PRWEB) October 27, 2011
On October 12th, Massage Envy franchises across the New Jersey and New York areas participated in Healing Hands for Arthritis, a nation-wide charity event taking place in honor of World Arthritis Day. Ten dollars from every one-hour massage and facial session at Massage Envy was donated to the Arthritis Foundation, a national organization committed to raising awareness and reducing the impact of arthritis, a serious disease which can severely damage joints and prevent people of living life to its fullest. Massage treatments target muscle pain and trigger points to help alleviate the constant aches and stress associated with arthritis. Massage Envy New Jersey franchise owners collectively raised $25,467.45 towards arthritis research, making the event a monumental success.
Jeff Weisman, Regional Developer of Massage Envy franchises in the New Jersey and New York area works to ensure that his centers provide exceptional services for those looking for massage therapy in New Jersey on a daily basis. On October 12th, all of his efforts paid off, and a total of $20,690 was donated from the 1,909 hours of massages and 160 hours of facials serviced.
While one may attribute the success of this one-day event to the demand for quality day spas in New Jersey, Weisman and fellow Massage Envy owners credit the success to their impeccable staff and the level of professional, yet comfortable interaction that has developed between guests and therapists over time. Due to this relationship, guests and employees alike have made fishbowl donations in the amount of $4,387.38.
This Healing Hands for Arthritis event also raised $390.07 from Murad® Skincare Product sales, foreshadowing a wonderful turnout at their Murad® Skin Event which will be providing facials in New Jersey, beginning on October 17th and continuing on through the month of October. Massage Envy franchises in New Jersey hope to continually help raise awareness about arthritis and help heal those who suffer from the disease and are grateful for the outpouring of support from their guests.
