Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) August 30, 2012
Massage Envy clinics in Pennsylvania will be participating in Healing Hands for Arthritis on September 19th, 2012. During the event, $10 from every one-hour massage or facial session will be donated directly to the Arthritis Foundation.
Massage Envy locations in Pennsylvania hope to help surpass last year’s successful fundraising event, where Massage Envy franchises all over the country raised close to half a million dollars for the Arthritis Foundation in one day.
In addition to facials and massage therapy, all Murad products sold at Massage Envy locations will include a 10% donation during the Healing Hands for Arthritis fundraiser. Massage Envy has long been a participant in the fight against arthritis through massage therapy. Massage has been a known arthritis reliever and helps control symptoms of arthritis such as pain, swelling, stress and anxiety.
