Bel Air News & Views sponsor Massage Envy raised almost a half million dollars during its Healing Hands for Arthritis event held to recognize World Arthritis Day. During the Oct. 12 fundraiser, $10 from every one-hour massage and facial session that day was set aside to be donated to the Arthritis Foundation. Massage Envy’s Bel Air clinic was among more than 700 others who raised a collective $493,150 for the Arthritis Foundation.

During Healing Hands for Arthritis, Murad®, Massage Envy Spa’s exclusive skin care partner, also donated 10 percent of sales from their products sold at Massage Envy Spa locations to the Arthritis Foundation. In addition, Wyndmere, another Massage Envy’s retail partner, donated 10 percent of their retail sales on from the day.

Today, arthritis strikes 50 million adults and 300,000 children and is the leading cause of disability in the nation. Massage Envy partnered with the Arthritis Foundation to help conquer this painful and debilitating disease. In addition to hosting Healing Hands for Arthritis, Massage Envy is a national sponsor of the Arthritis Foundation’s 200 Arthritis Walk® events, where local Massage Envy owners from across the country have shared information about the benefits of massage therapy, provided chair massages and supported the Arthritis Foundation’s mission at their respective local walks.

Many adult sufferers of arthritis are in their 20s, 30s and 40s. It is not just a disease that afflicts people when they are old. To make an appointment at the Bel Air clinic, 591 Baltimore Pike in the Bel Air Plaza, call 410-420-7770. For more information, visit http://bit.ly/qeS5m6
