Massage Envy Spa and the Arthritis Foundation share a common understanding about the devastating effects of arthritis on the body and the potential for massage therapy to relieve and control certain symptoms. Massage Envy Spa is a national sponsor of the Arthritis Foundation's Walk to Cure Arthritis? events throughout the country as well as the host of Healing Hands for Arthritis™, a one-day, in-clinic nationwide event.
Healing Hands for Arthritis™
For every one-hour massage or facial session performed during our one-day event, Massage Envy Spa makes a donation to the Arthritis Foundation. Over the last three years, our devoted employees and caring members and guests proudly raised over $2 Million through Healing Hands for Arthritis. With your help, we can raise even more. Join us for this year's Healing Hands for Arthritis event on September 17. Your massage or facial could help the many adults and children suffering from the disease find lasting relief.
Living with Arthritis
Arthritis is the leading cause of disability, reduced quality of life, and high health care costs in the U.S. Of the 46 million Americans who suffer from arthritis, nearly half say that arthritis limits their normal activities. The good news is that recent studies suggest that massage can help reduce pain and increase mobility in those who suffer from arthritis. At Massage Envy Spa, we offer a Massage Wellness Program to help you cupe with chronic arthritis pain.
Massage Brings Relief, Relaxation, And Sleep
A study conducted by the Touch Research Institute at the University of Miami School of Medicine showed that ongoing massage could lower anxiety, reduce pain, and improve grip strength for those with arthritis. Additionally, a common thread between arthritis sufferers is lack of deep sleep. Tiffany Field, PhD and director of the Touch Research Institute noted that, "When you are deprived of deep sleep, certain kinds of pain chemicals are released." With regular massage, our professional therapists can actually help you get more deep sleep. "It's this deep sleep that's truly important because that is where the restorative process is happening," says Field. This is doubly important, as not only can ongoing massage help you sleep better, but it can also decrease your pain during the day.
