Massage therapists are no strangers to volunteering hands-on services when needed.

An Annapolis, Maryland massage practice raised more than $1,600 for the local Boys & Girls Clubs through a massage-a-thon Feb. 14.

Destination Relaxation President and CEO Laurie Sears Deppa employs a team of massage therapists who provide on-site massage therapy to corporations and individuals. The company also operates a massage location at Baltimore-Washington International Airport.

Up to nine therapists at a time worked at the massage-a-thon.

“It was a fantastic turnout out and everyone had a great time as well,” Sears Deppa said. “There are plans to do other such events in the future.”

$1,659 was donated to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Annapolis & Anne Arundel County.
