For the past two years massage envy has been participating in an event to raise awareness and funds to fight arthritis. Nationwide they have raised over $1 million for the Arthritis Foundation! (How awesome is that!)
What they do, is donate $10 from EVERY one-hour massage. This year they are taking reservations for the cause on September 18th. In central Florida you can participate at all 13 of our locations! These include: Altamonte Springs, Clermont, Downtown/SODO, Dr. Phillips, Gainesville, Hunter’s Creek, Lake Mary/Sanford, Oviedo, Port Orange, Viera, Waterford Lakes, Winter Garden, and Winter Park.
Did you know Lucille ball dealt with Rheumatoid Arthritis from the age of 17? Did you know that rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disorder? (You’re immune system accidentally attacks your own body). Other autoimmune disorders include diseases like Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Lupus, Graves Disease, and Diabetes Type 1.
The point is, arthritis isn’t just the 50-60 somethings you see on commercials that can’t sew and put their hobby planes together anymore.It is an incredibly painful disease that can even lead to joint deformation and bone corrosion.
Help Massage Envy take this stance for victims of arthritis and book a massage! Not only will you feel great from a day at a spa, you can rest assured that you’re relaxing for a cause.
