On Sept. 18, Massage Envy’s 24 Washington state clinics and spas will donate $10 from every one-hour massage session or facial to the Arthritis Foundation.

This is the third annual Healing Hands for Arthritis event, a national effort by Massage Envy Spa and the Arthritis Foundation. In the past two years, it has raised more than $1 million for the Arthritis Foundation, with more than $30,000 coming from Washington state.

“There’s no better way to give back than to treat yourself, a friend or family member to a relaxing and rejuvenating massage or facial,” said Barney Nelson, regional developer for Massage Envy in Washington state. “We strongly encourage Washingtonians to come out on September 18 to help fight arthritis, a disease that is America’s leading cause of disability, affecting one in every four Washington residents, and 50 million Americans.”

Massage Envy is accepting appointments for the one-day event. The clinics accept reservations on a first-come, first-served basis. Newcastle’s Massage Envy is at 6920 Coal Creek Parkway S.E.
