During Massage Envy’s Healing Hands for Arthritis event, clients receiving massages will also benefit the Arthritis Foundation and its efforts to find a cure.

On Wednesday, September 19, $10 from every one-hour massage session will be donated to the Arthritis Foundation. To introduce new clients to the benefits of massage, Massage Envy offers special introductory rates of $49 for one-hour, and $74 for one-and-a-half hour massage sessions. Membership packages are also available for those interested in making the benefits of massage part of their regular health and wellness routine.

“We are proud of our partnership with the Arthritis Foundation; which provides us a meaningful way to help those suffering from the pain of arthritis not only financially, but also through the healing benefits of massage,” said Massage Envy – Brandon owner Steve Plattner.

More than 50 million men, women and children suffer with arthritis and the annual walk raises awareness and funds to fight arthritis.

Massage Envy offers affordable memberships, flexible hours and 10 convenient locations throughout Tampa Bay. In addition, the Brandon Massage Envy’s team of more than 30 licensed and professional massage therapists provides expertise in a wide range of massage techniques, including Deep Tissue, Sports, Swedish, Prenatal, Reflexology, Trigger Point Therapy, and Cranial Sacral. In addition, the Brandon location offers signature services, including Hot Stone massage, Deep Heat treatment and Aromatherapy.

Many clients take advantage of Massage Envy’s membership program, which provides them a one-hour massage therapy session with a professional massage therapist every month; in addition to unlimited additional massages each month at the reduced member rate, special splitting and sharing privileges and more. And since your membership is valid nationwide, you can find relief at more than 700 Massage Envy locations…hard to find that at a traditional day spa.

The Brandon Massage Envy, voted Best of Brandon 2012, is located at 2092 Badlands Dr. in the Brandon Crossroads plaza. For more information or to book your appointment, call 413-2211 or visit.
