Massage Envy Spa to Host Healing Hands for Arthritis

Massage Envy and Arthritis Foundation Host Third Annual Healing Hands for Arthritis EventMassage Envy Spa and the Arthritis Foundation have joined forces to host the third annual Healing Hands for Arthritis, a one-day national event to raise funds to find a cure for arthritis. On Sept. 18, all of Massage Envy’s nearly 900 locations will donate $10 from every one-hour massage or facial to the Arthritis Foundation. Since 2011, Massage Envy Spa has raised more than $1 million to help the Arthritis Foundation serve the 50 million adults and 300,000 children affected by the disease. “We are again thrilled to be hosting the Healing Hands for Arthritis event at all Massage Envy Spa locations throughout the U.S.,” says Dave Crisalli, president and CEO of Massage Envy Spa. “Our brand remains deeply committed to helping the Arthritis Foundation fight this debilitating disease.” Carrie Ann Inaba, television host and Dancing with the Stars celebrity judge, will also join the campaign to help fight arthritis. Inaba suffers from spinal stenosis, a arthritic condition where the spinal canal narrows and compresses the spinal cord and nerves. “It's so important to bring awareness to arthritis and the millions of Americans living with pain,” says Carrie Ann Inaba. “Giving back to the Arthritis Foundation is a cause close to my heart as I personally battle with the disease, and I am honored to be a part of this year’s Healing Hands for Arthritis campaign.” Additionally, Massage Envy’s partners will donate 10 percent of all sales from their products sold during the event to the Arthritis Foundation, including Murad, BioFreeze, and Wyndmere. “We are proud to partner with Massage Envy Spa for the third year in a row to host Healing Hands for Arthritis,” says Meagan Fulmer, Arthritis Foundation chief development officer. “The funds raised during this one-day event across the country will provide support for arthritis education, advocacy, and research to cure our nation’s leading cause of disability.”
