Massage Therapy – A Growth Industry
AMTA estimates that in 2009, massage therapy was a $16-20 billion industry.
According to the U.S. Department of Labor employment for massage therapists is expected to increase 20 percent from 2006 to 2016, faster than average for all occupations.
Between July 2008 and July 2009, roughly 48 million adult Americans (22 percent) had a massage at least once.
In July 2009, 32 percent of adult Americans said they had at least one massage in the last five years to reduce stress or relax—up from 22 percent reported in 2007.
More than two-thirds of massage therapists (76 percent) indicate they receive referrals from health care professionals, averaging 1.5 referrals per month. This represents a significant increase from 2008, when 69 percent of massage therapists reported receiving health care referrals.

Hear What Our Owners Have to Say...
"In January 2007, I opened the first elements franchise in Massachusetts. The results of my first studio, along with the immediate interest of others in purchasing elements franchises, has made this one of the best business decisions of my career!"
– Steve Stabile, Area Director/Owner: Massachusetts
"Owning an elements therapeutic massage studio has been an amazing journey. On a daily basis, I see the relief in our clients' faces after their massage, create new friendships in my local community and across the country, and feel the satisfaction of giving back to society by working with charitable organizations in fundraising efforts. Through elements, I am showing my children the work ethic and payback of owning your own business."
– Aimee Matchette, Area Director/Owner: Wisconsin
"I began my career with the elements team as an owner of their first franchise model Fitness Together. Previous to joining their franchise team, I had my own personal training studio that performed well, but adding the experience and knowledge of their management team took my business to a much higher level. When our franchise management team launched elements, I knew immediately that this was another great model. I had so much faith in the team at elements that I purchased the Area Director rights for Texas. I now have 3 elements locations of my own and several others under development. I would recommend elements to anyone with an entrepreneurial spirit and the desire to help others."
– Cliff Latham, Area Director/Owner: Texas
