HIGHLANDS RANCH, Colo. – (March 3, 2010) – The rising cost of healthcare has had a direct impact on the growing $9 billion massage therapy industry as Americans look to stay out of doctor’s offices and maintain their health and wellness. And Elements Therapeutic Massage, one of the fastest-growing franchises in America, has found Massachusetts to be one of the hottest markets for its services.

To meet that growing demand, executives from the Colorado-based franchise company will host a franchise expansion event on April 7 to showcase opportunities throughout Boston and surrounding areas to prospective franchisees. The “Discover the Elements of Success” Franchise Seminar will be held from 2 – 4 p.m. at the Marriott in Newton and will include presentations by key executives, question and answer sessions and an opportunity for franchise prospects to meet Boston area franchise owners.

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 has opened 11 studios in Massachusetts and plans at least 12 more locations in the region in 2010.

The company is targeting multi-unit franchisees, entrepreneurs and corporate evacuees to join the network in meeting the growing demand for its health and wellness services.

“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,” said Bob Haimes, chief growth officer and executive vice president of Elements Therapeutic Massage.

Elements Therapeutic Massage began franchising in 2006 and today includes 78 studios across 22 states.
