Newark, NJ (PRWEB) October 02, 2011
Massage Envy locations are getting prepared for the fast-approaching Healing Hands for Arthritis, a charity event supporting the Arthritis Foundation taking place at Massage Envy locations nationwide on October 12th. On the 12th, ten dollars from every one-hour massage session and facial will be donated to the Arthritis Foundation, the largest arthritis awareness organization in the nation.
Healing Hands for Arthritis will be taking place on World Arthritis Day, and Massage Envy franchises in New Jersey are happy to be partnering up with the Arthritis Foundation to support a great cause. Massage Envy already specializes in pain management, stress relief therapy, and provide massage therapy to many arthritic patients. Massage Envy franchises in New Jersey are hoping to spread the word about their pain relief services, and hope to attract those looking to help relive their arthritis symptoms through massage therapy in New Jersey.
Peggy Lotkowictz has been working with the Arthritis Foundation for twelve years as the Vice President of Mission Delivery, and has had arthritis for almost thirty years.Lotkowictz joined her local Massage Envy when she realized she could make massage therapy part of her monthly routine.
“I used to get massages maybe four times a year, but it was just so expensive,” Lotkowictz explains, “it was difficult to find a place that really understood my needs in terms of my arthritis and joint damage and I could only treat myself to massages four times a year because they were very expensive.” For Lotkowitctz, what Massage Envy provided was a convenient and affordable way of allowing her to take control of her disease through massage in New Jersey.
As a member of the Arthritis Foundation, Lotkowictz is hoping that Healing Hands for Arthritis will help spread awareness about an often-misunderstood condition. “The public is totally underinformed about arthritis,” she says, “and people treat it as a part of aging rather than a disease. That’s the hardest thing we have to fight.” Massage Envy locations in New Jersey hope that, with the public’s support, this October 12th will help spread awareness about a great cause and raise funds for the Arthritis Foundation when guest receive a massage or facial in New Jersey at a Massage Envy location.
