Massage Envy, the pioneer and national leader of professional, convenient and affordable massage and spa services, announced today that the three clinics located in the Coachella Valley, raised more than $1,800 during the second annual Healing Hands for Arthritis.
The one-day national event took place at more than 800 Massage Envy clinics on Sept. 19. Ten dollars from every massage and facial was donated to the Arthritis Foundation to benefit the organization's mission to prevent, control and cure arthritis.
As a network, Massage Envy raised more than $678,000 during this one-day event.
“We are so thankful for the incredible turnout we experienced during Healing Hands for Arthritis this year,” said Holly Nelson Lassak, Massage Envy Spa owner of the three Coachella Valley clinics. “The Coachella Valley really came out in full force to help make this event a big success. Supporting the local Arthritis Foundation Desert chapter is very important to us and we look forward to next year’s event.”
During the event, Murad, Massage Envy Spa's exclusive skin care partner, donated 10 percent of all sales from their products sold at Massage Envy Spas to the Arthritis Foundation. BioFreeze and Wyndmere also donated 10 percent of their retail sales to the cause.
Today, arthritis affects 50 million adults and 300,000 children. By the year 2030, an estimated 67 million or 25 percent of the projected total adult population will have arthritis.
Massage Envy and the Arthritis Foundation share a common understanding about the devastating effects of the disease on the body and the potential for massage therapy to relieve and control certain symptoms. Massage therapy can play an important role in alleviating the pain and swelling caused by arthritis while improving flexibility and circulation, and reducing stress and anxiety.
In addition to hosting Healing Hands for Arthritis, Massage Envy is a national sponsor of the Arthritis Foundation’s other signature event, Arthritis Walk. Massage Envy owners from across the country have and will continue to have a presence at their local Arthritis Walk events to share information about the benefits of massage therapy, provide chair massages and support the Arthritis Foundation’s mission. This year’s event in the Coachella Valley takes place Oct. 25.
