Healing Hands for Arthritis

Healing Hands for Arthritis® 2016 Coming this Fall!

As the Champion of Yes, we are constantly looking for new ways to help people with arthritis discover their own personal victories. And we believe it’s our duty to help people live their best life while also forging a path to a cure. For many, living their best life with arthritis means finding ways to reduce pain, improve overall health, lower anxiety or just to take a moment to relax and celebrate everyday moments of Yes.

Massage therapy plays a vital role in the health and well-being of many people who live with arthritis. That’s why our partnership with Massage Envy is a natural fit. We share a common understanding about the devastating effects of arthritis, both physically and mentally.

In its sixth year, Healing Hands for Arthritis® is a one day fundraiser hosted at Massage Envy locations across the country, where $10 from every 1-hour massage or facial and 10% of select retail products sold on that day goes to the Arthritis Foundation.

Healing Hands for Arthritis took place this year on September 16, but you can still help us take steps towards conquering arthritis – by volunteering or by making a gift to the Arthritis Foundation, which will go towards funding vital research and community programs to help those with arthritis say Yes more often! We also encourage you to visit a Massage Envy near you to experience the benefits of massage first-hand!
