New York NY (PRWEB) August 25, 2012
On September 19th, Massage Envy clinics in New York and New Jersey will be participating in the Second Annual Healing Hands for Arthritis event to support the Arthritis Foundation. Massage Envy will be donating $10 from every massage and facial to the Arthritis Foundation to help prevent, control and cure arthritis. Murad, Massage Envy’s skin care partner, will also be donating 10% of their in-store product sales during the day of the event.
Last year, this nationwide event raised almost $500,000 to fight the disease that affects millions of Americans. This year Massage Envy locations in New York and New Jersey hope to raise even more funds to help such a noteworthy cause.
