About the Owners
Shauna Boyd Aug 27, 2011
When we moved to Arizona from Kansas in 1998, owning a massage therapy studio was the furthest thing from our minds. Neither one of us had a back ground in massage therapy. Darrin earned his Master’s Degree in Electrical Engineering and Shauna completed her Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration, both at Wichita State University.
After several years of Darrin working in the software consulting industry, and Shauna working for an insurance company, as a part-time photographer and “domestic engineer”, the opportunity to invest in a new franchise came about. Our adventure began after visiting the Fitness Together Franchise Corporation in Highlands Ranch, Colorado, the parent company of Elements Therapeutic Massage, and learning the concept of creating a successful studio.
Opening a business in the “health and wellness” industry, to create a better quality of life for others was the biggest selling point. This taste of entrepreneurship opened our eyes to what our true passion is; business ownership and development.
If you or someone you know might be thinking about starting their own business, Elements Therapeutic Massage is a growing franchise looking to expand in the Phoenix metropolitan area. We would be happy to share our journey with you and encourage you to pursue your dream of business ownership.
