Massage Business Offers "Tax-Relief" To Help Customers Manage Stress

Apr 6, 2009

HIGHLANDS RANCH, Colo. – April 6, 2009 – Tax season can be the most stressful time of the year. But elements therapeutic massage is helping to manage the stress by offering “Tax-Relief” with discounts on popular therapeutic massage sessions.

From April 1–16, participating elements therapeutic massage studios are offering either a $10.99 or $10.40 deduction on any regular priced massage session, paying tribute to the widely used tax form.

“With financial woes, tax filing deadlines and the current economy adding to everyday stress, we want to help alleviate some of that stress and anxiety with our Tax-Relief program,” said Jeff Jervik, president and CEO of parent-company Fitness Together Holdings, Inc.

Therapeutic massage affects the nervous system through nerve endings in the skin, stimulating the release of endorphins, the body’s natural pain reliever. This induces relaxation, relieves pain and reduces levels of stress chemicals such as cortisol and noradrenalin.

The program is supported by in-store POP, email announcements and cross-promotions with local tax offices such as H&R Block and Jackson Hewitt.
