HIGHLANDS RANCH, Colo. – February 25, 2010 – Elements Therapeutic Massage has announced an aggressive franchise expansion campaign for Massachusetts with plans to award 12 locations in the region this year in addition to the 11 Elements studios that have opened in the last three years.
Honored in Entrepreneur Magazine’s “Fastest-Growing Franchises” in 2009, and named one of Dun & Bradstreet’s “AllBusiness Franchise AllStars” for 2010, Elements Therapeutic Massage is changing the way consumers look at massage therapy.
“Massachusetts is a prime example as evidenced by its past development in the market and the current room to grow,” said Kyle Gjersee, chief operating officer and senior vice president of Elements Therapeutic Massage. “Demand for our services has never been greater, and our studios in Massachusetts continue to set records for our franchise network.”
Elements is the largest employer of massage therapists in Massachusetts. The 11 Elements studios that are located in the state collectively make up the largest and best performing Elements market in the nation.
Making therapeutic massage more available and more affordable has also created more loyal customers for a win-win that is defying the economy. Gjersee credits the trend to a general public concerned about maintaining health and wellness in the face of a national healthcare debate and rising medical costs that are out of their control.
“The true benefits of massage therapy are breaking old stereotypes of our industry as an expensive splurge, and Elements is leading the way,” Gjersee said. “We see a real opportunity to invite others into our system who want to own their own business and 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 the network in meeting demand, while enjoying a career in the growing health and wellness industry that continues to gain momentum.
On April 7, Elements Therapeutic Massage will host its first regional franchise development event at the Marriott in Newton. The “Discover the Elements of Success” Franchise Event will introduce the franchise concept to interested prospects.
