Massage Envy is gearing up to host the annual Healing Hands for Arthritis event on Wednesday, September 19. All Massage Envy locations nationwide, including 12 central Florida locations, will partner up with the Arthritis Foundation for the event to help raise awareness and funds for the organization.

“There’s no easier way to give back than to treat yourself, a friend or family member to a relaxing and rejuvenating massage or facial,” said Adam Toporek, Regional Developer for Massage Envy in Central Florida. “We welcome the Central Florida community to join us on September 19 to help fight arthritis, a disease that affects 50 million Americans and is America’s leading cause of disability.”

All day from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. on September 19, Massage Envy will donate $10 from every one-hour massage and facial session to the Arthritis Foundation. In addition, Murad—Massage Envy’s exclusive skincare partner—will donate 10 percent of all sales of products sold at Massage Envy on the day.

Those who wish to participate are encouraged to make an appointment by calling the nearest Massage Envy location or visiting the website at http://www.massageenvy.com to schedule an appointment.
