Rejuvenations Massage Therapy is thinking of Purple Hearts. Recipients of the Purple Heart sacrifice more than most — they have endured pain and trauma on behalf of all they defend. As a small way to say thank you, Rejuvenations Massage Therapy is giving back: through May 1, Mondays are Purple Heart Days at Rejuvenations Massage Therapy. On Mondays, Rejuvenations Massage Therapy will offer free 60 minute massages to any Purple Heart recipient from the Middle East wars.
