Healing Hands for Arthritis
Massage Envy and the Arthritis Foundation have joined forces to host Healing Hands for Arthritis. It is a one-day national event to build awareness and raise funds to fight arthritis.
Wednesday September 19th, Massage Envy clinics across the country will donate $10 from every one-hour massage or facial to the Arthritis Foundation.
The Arthritis Foundation says recent scientific studies have found massage therapy increases immune function, decreases stress levels, and reduces recovery time in many medical conditions including arthritis.
Arthritis is the leading cause of disability in the United States, impacting 50 million adults and nearly 300,000 children. More than 1.2 million adults and nearly 6,000 children in Tennessee have a doctor-diagnosed form of the disease.
