Massage for a Cause

Body & Soul is having an open house benefitting the ALS Association in memory of Aracelis N. Olivera on Thursday May 7th 5-8pm.

May is National ALS Awareness Month, and Body & Soul's annual Open House will raise money and awareness for ALS research and to honor the late Aracelis Oliveria - the mother of employee Lisette Olivera - who passed away in 1998.

Attendees of this special event will enjoy a free sampling of services from the licensed massage therapists of Body & Soul Massage and Wellness Center, including hand paraffin, chair massages, hot stone demonstrations, reflexology, and more. Refreshments will also be provided.

A donation of $5 at the door is requested. All donations will benefit the ALS Association. ALS stands for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and is often referred to as "Lou Gehrig's Disease", a debilitating and progressive neurodegenerative disease that is often fatal.

About ALS:
The ALS Association is the only national not-for-profit health organization dedicated solely to the fight against ALS. As the preeminent ALS organization, The Association leads the way in research, patient and community services, public education, and advocacy - giving help and hope to those facing the disease. The ALS Association directs the most comprehensive, global ALS research program ever organized and is currently overseeing approximately 100 different research projects into all aspects of ALS. The Association has committed close to $40 million toward ALS research. Each dollar has gone directly to investigators doing the research.For more information visit the ALS Association website:
