On Tuesday, Sept. 15, Massage Envy will team up with Susan G. Komen for the Cure to help win the fight against breast cancer by hosting Massage for the Cure.
During this one-day event from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m., Massage Envy clinics will offer $35 one-hour therapeutic massage sessions, with $10 from each massage donated directly to the Florida Suncoast Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Additional donations will also be accepted and all proceeds collected will go directly into the local community.
On any other day, non members pay $65 for a one hour massage. Members pay $49 per month for one hour massage and $39 for subsequent massages during the month.
The event is open to the public and requires an appointment at any of the nine Tampa Bay Area Massage Envy clinics. All proceeds from Massage for the Cure will support breast cancer education, screening and treatment initiatives in communities across the U.S.
To make an appointment, contact any of the nine Tampa Bay area Massage Envy clinics directly at 1-888-781-ENVY (3689) or visit MassageEnvy.com for a clinic near you.

Since the first Massage for the Cure event in 2005, Massage Envy has raised over $800,000 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure. This year, Massage Envy’s goal is to raise $500,000, with an estimated 590 Massage Envy clinics in 40 states participating.
This year alone, more than 180,000 women and men in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer and more than 40,000 will lose their lives to the disease. A woman is diagnosed with breast cancer every three minutes and the disease claims another life every 13 minutes.
