“This is a perfect event for Massage Envy to sponsor,” says Lance O’Pry, regional developer for Massage Envy DFW. “Massage has been found to help ease the pain of arthritis, including rheumatoid arthritis. Many of our clients with arthritis come in several times a month. They find that massage not only relieves the pain, but allows them to move around better and get on with their daily lives.”
The Jingle Bell Run/Walk is more than just a 5K run/walk; it’s a fun and festive, holiday-themed event that includes “holiday costume” contests, canine costume contest, music, food, prizes, kid fun run, and old Saint Nick leads the way. For serious runners, the course is certified and runners are timed.
Tie those jingle bells onto your sneakers and head to Chesapeake Plaza, 100 Energy Way, in downtown Fort Worth on December 1. Festivities will begin at 2 p.m. A 1-mile Reindeer Fun Run starts at 4:30 p.m., followed by the 5K at 5 p.m. More than 5000 people are expected to participate. All funds raised will help fund education, research and other programs.

“By participating as a sponsor in the Jingle Bell Run/Walk for Arthritis, we want people to associate massage and arthritis together,” states O’Pry. “Massage Envy has licensed massage therapists who can offer several types of massage to suit each client’s needs.”
If you or someone you know lives with arthritis, consider the gift of massage. Massage Envy has a special gift card incentive for the holidays. Buy three gift cards at $75 each (or any combination that equals $225) and receive a complimentary, one-hour massage session for yourself. To qualify for the free massage, the gift cards must be purchased at one of the 28 DFW Massage Envy locations. However, gift cards can be redeemed for any product or service offered at any Massage Envy clinic, nationwide.
At Massage Envy, an introductory one-hour massage session (a 50-minute massage and time for consultation and dressing) is $49. Memberships are available for $59 per month, which includes a one-hour massage session and entitles members to additional, unlimited massages at a discounted rate. A number of Massage Envy locations also offer facials. They use Murad® skincare products and are available for $10 more than massage sessions.
All Massage Envy clinics are open seven days a week. To find a local clinic, visit www.massageenvy.com.
Arthritis refers to over 100 different diseases that can affect the joints, muscles, and other soft tissues. The three most common forms are osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and juvenile arthritis. Other types of arthritis include gout, fibromyalgia, bursitis, tendinitis, lupus, scleroderma, infectious arthritis and carpal tunnel syndrome.
Symptoms can include pain, swelling and stiffness in the joints or the inability to move a joint normally. In some types of arthritis, joints can become red, warm, swollen and painful, and the person may feel “sick all over.”
It is the most prevalent chronic health problem and the nation’s leading cause of disability among Americans over age 15. Arthritis can affect people of all ages, including children. It is estimated that 27 million adults and over 300,000 children live with this debilitating disease.
