Treat Yourself: How to Save Big on Stress Relief With Customized Massages
There’s no doubt about it, you could use a break. Balancing work, errands, kids, etc. is hard enough during normal times. Doing it all from home during a pandemic? Now that’s a Herculean effort. It also leaves little time to take care of yourself.
Here’s the thing. Isn’t it time to treat yourself to something special? Turns out you don’t have to go far to find some R&R. “A massage is a great opportunity to relax, relieve anxiety, and get that much-needed digital detox.” says Matt Lanuto, owner of three out of over 30 Elements Massage® studios in the Greater Boston area. “It can be a great way to get some time away just to unplug and recharge the battery.”
Customized Just for You
Finding a massage provider is easy. There are plenty of places to get a basic, one size fits all massage in the Greater Boston area. At Elements, though, your massage is always one-of-a-kind. That’s the goal of The Elements Way®: giving every client a therapeutic, handcrafted, and personalized experience tailored to their particular needs. Suffering from a bad back? Maybe a sore neck? No matter her aches and pains, Lanuto says there is a massage therapist who specializes in relieving them.
“We take time to understand the client, who they are, what they do for work, what injuries they may have, etc…and from there we make recommendations of which massage therapist we think would pair best with them,” says Lanuto.
The Elements Massage brand doesn’t try to sell you on a bunch of different wellness treatments. “One of the big things that makes the brand stand out in the crowded industry,” Lanuto explains, “is that massage therapy is the core focus. Whether you prefer a Swedish, trigger point, deep tissue, or a mix, you’ll be able to find her favorite type at any Elements Massage studio.”
Relief and Restoration
It’s no secret that everyone is more stressed than usual these days, particularly parents. Too much stress can have an adverse effect on physical and mental health. While medications can help, Lanuto emphasizes that some of the biggest benefits of a massage session are that it’s a drug-free, non-invasive, and humanistic approach to wellness for everyone. Regular massages can also help to lower stress and anxiety, and even help increase your overall happiness.
“People may consider getting a massage as a luxury or as just having physical benefits,” says Lanuto. “It’s important for people to know that there are a lot of mental health benefits, and massage therapy can help provide therapeutic relief to people of all ages, from all walks of life.”
To really treat yourself this year, sign up for The Elements Wellness Program™, a month-to-month membership that gets her one massage session a month at a discounted rate. If you skip one month, the massage session rolls over to the next month. The best part? You can share those massage sessions with family members and spread the love.
Safety Is a Priority
Most companies have instituted new cleaning procedures over the past year, but few can boast that they’ve achieved a client safety rating of 9.5/10. Lanuto says “The Elements Massage brand got there by prioritizing safety and sanitation with a list of commitments that include enhanced cleaning after each massage session, staggered appointments, and temperature checks prior to service.”
So, what are you waiting for? A discount? Okay, here’s the deal. Elements Massage locations in the Greater Boston Area are currently offering new clients $30 off their first customized massage session.
“Our goal is to help you feel better, whether it’s physically or mentally, and ensure that you have a great experience,” says Lanuto. “If you’re rebooking your next massage session before you walk out the door because you realize the benefits of massage, then we know we did our job.”
