From more than 80 locations nationwide, the therapists of Elements Therapeutic Massage performed more than 400,000 massages in 2011. The deft team continues their pursuit of pampering by performing comprehensive consultations before every service. Once health concerns have been highlighted, therapists ameliorate stress by applying the client's desired level of pressure and avoiding any and all knock-knock-joke attempts. Though all of the therapists are well-versed in Swedish and deep-tissue techniques, some are also familiar with prenatal, sports, hot-stone, or trigger-point modalities.
