HIGHLANDS RANCH, Colo. – Sept. 9, 2010 – Elements Therapeutic Massage has announced an aggressive franchise expansion campaign for Arizona, with plans to grow the brand to 16 studios. With five locations in the state and two more in development, Elements will add nine new franchise locations in its next phase of development.

Honored in Entrepreneur magazine’s “Fastest-Growing Franchises” in 2009, named one of Dun & Bradstreet’s “AllBusiness Franchise AllStars” for 2010, and ranked No. 7 on Franchise Times magazine’s “Fast 55” list of fastest-growing franchises for 2010, Elements Therapeutic Massage is changing the way consumers look at massage therapy.

“We’ve had an incredible year, and demand for our services has never been greater,” said Kyle Gjersee, chief operating officer and senior vice president of Elements Therapeutic Massage. “In Arizona, the success of existing studios has necessitated the need for expansion and our business model has delivered for people looking to own a great franchise.”

As the general public grows more concerned about maintaining health and wellness in the face of rising medical costs, Elements is answering the call and inviting others to be part of the growing $9 billion massage therapy industry by joining a national leader.

The Colorado-based franchisor is targeting multi-unit franchisees, entrepreneurs and corporate evacuees to join its franchise system.

On Oct. 7, Elements Therapeutic Massage will host a franchise development event at the Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort and Spa. The “Elements of Success” franchise event will introduce the franchise concept to interested prospects. Registration begins at 5:30 p.m., and the event is from 6 to 8 p.m. For more information or to register for the event, visit www.touchofelements.com/event or call (877) 663-0880.
