Massage Envy, the pioneer and leader of professional, convenient and affordable massage and spa services, announced recently that the Destin clinic raised $749.55 during the second annual Healing Hands for Arthritis. The one-day national event took place Sept. 19 when $10 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 Rosemary, Destin Massage Envy Spa owner. “The local Destin community really came out in full force to help make this event a big success. Supporting the local Destin Arthritis Foundation 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 Spa Destin to the Arthritis Foundation. BioFreeze and Wyndmere also donated 10 percent of their retail sales to the cause.



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.
