Here’s one of my most recent news releases. Come join us Saturday!
Kansas City, Mo.… Summer and baseball season will soon be winding down, the perfect time for a relaxing break on Saturday, Sept. 17, as one of the massage recipients helping Massage Envy attempt to break – and reclaim – the Guinness World Record for “Most People Being Massaged” at the same time and place.Massage Envy and Massage EnvySpa locations in 10 states from coast to coast are teaming up with the Kansas City Royals for the event, which will be held from 5 to 6 p.m. in the Little K field inside Kauffman Stadium before the 6 p.m. home game between the Kansas City Royals and Chicago White Sox.
Massage Envy and Massage Envy Spa therapists from nine Massage Envy locations in Kansas City, Mo., and Leawood, Lenexa, Shawnee, Prairie Village, Overland Park and Olathe, Kan., are organizing the event. The current record of 263 massages is held in Australia. Massage Envy previously set the record in 2009 in Rosslyn, Va.
The public is invited to experience the fun and enjoy their “15 minutes of fame” as therapists go for the record, with the opportunity for bragging rights and inclusion in the Guinness Book of World Records. The wives of Royals pitchers Blake Wood and Sean O’Sullivan are expected to be among the participants.
Participants are encouraged to preregister by purchasing a $25 special event ticket through www.royals.com/massageenvy. The special event ticket includes the 10-minute Guinness Book of World Records massage plus admission to the game and a customized yoga mat. Light snacks and beverages will also be provided. A portion of the ticket will benefit the local chapter of The Arthritis Foundation.
“This is a real team effort by Massage Envy and the Royals,” said Les Snyder, regional developer for Massage Envy Heartland Inc. “We’ll also be supporting our national cause, The Arthritis Foundation, while giving 500 or more Kansas Citians the opportunity to enjoy the benefits of a massage plus getting to participate in setting a new world record.”
