Who is Behind Elements Therapeutic Massage? A Message from the Owners

Who is Behind Elements Therapeutic Massage? A Message from the Owners

Ok, I know what you’re thinking…of all the businesses in the world why open a massage studio? A fair question and one posed many times to Ralph, my business partner, and me.  We investigated many different concepts ranging from restaurants to hair salons, and nothing felt quite right.  We wanted a business that would make people feel good and be proud of at the same time.  To Ralph’s credit, he was relentless and after numerous conversations, he convinced me to investigate a brand called Elements Therapeutic Massage. 

Ralph’s persistence paid off.   We met with Elements’ management team and as the old saying goes, the rest is history.  Both of us were raised in Park Ridge and knew our first studio had to be in our home town.  Despite the challenges of finding the “right” location, we were fortunate to land a spot nestled between Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory and Sports Clips, across from Starbucks on Northwest Highway.   The response from the community in the three months we’ve been open has been nothing short of outstanding, and we’re very appreciative.

Our goal is to provide a true therapeutic experience.  Our therapists do this by spending the time to understand the client’s problem areas, wellness goals, and expected outcomes.  Our therapists are matched to the requested pressure levels and specialize in combining techniques from several types of massage for a customized experience   A massage may include deep tissue, trigger point, sports/stretch, hot stone and Swedish techniques.

Not only do we offer a great massage experience, but also an outstanding wellness program:  You can save $30-$60 on every massage (and who doesn’t want to save a little cash these days); purchase gift certificates at membership rates; and join with no activation or annual fees,  are just a few of our wellness program benefits.

Finally, why should you keep following our blog?  We will share tips on wellness/stress management and dietary considerations.  You’ll regularly hear from our “licensed guest therapists” who will share their insights on how to improve your quality of life.  As a reader you can submit questions via email to and we’ll do our best to answer them with the latest facts and techniques.

We hope you’ll join us for this exciting journey and look forward to seeing you for a therapeutic massage soon.
