In 2006, a massage therapist in Colorado became the launching pad for the first massage therapist-inspired, national franchise system, Elements Massage®. The concept was born as a therapist and client focused business, striving to connect clients with the right therapist, to not only give the client what they are looking for from their massage, but also to allow the therapist to provide a massage that fits their strengths as a therapist. That focus has not only positioned us as an employer of choice, but has propelled Elements to where the brand is today, 10 years after franchising.
The business model was built as a recurring revenue model through membership. As a manager-run business, Elements provides the flexibility for owners to keep their day job, but still focus on growing their massage business. The Elements franchise system now has over 200 studios in 36 states across the country.
