Elements Therapeutic Massage
Owner and experienced massage therapist Michael Church organizes his business around the belief that the difference between giving a good massage and a great massage is “asking the right questions and customizing [the massage] to the customer’s needs.” His therapists begin each new-client relationship with a review of the client’s grievances, lifestyle habits, and professional wrestling history, and then they check in with their patients throughout each treatment to better understand where to focus pressure.
Each massage style is priced the same, freeing people to mix and match modalities such as deep tissue, Swedish, and trigger point within single sessions. The therapists also add hot stones to massages, and the team plans to grow its repertoire of treatments that utilize healing laser and light therapies.
Upon arrival at the cozy studio, which resembles a living room with antique furniture and a painting that represents the four elements, patrons can snack on a complimentary chocolate or mints from the front desk. Soothing instrumental music is piped throughout the space, although patrons can control the volume from their individual rooms.
