Just over 2.3 million is a lot of people, and it’s also how many people suffer from MS or multiple sclerosis throughout the world. This is a very personal topic to the employees at Elements Massage in Cottonwood Heights, and they are preparing for some events this upcoming season to raise awareness and funds for the cause.
Although its doors opened less than a year ago, Elements Massage has gone out of its way to give back to the community. These charitable acts include sponsoring the Lupus Foundation, another dear cause to Elements Massage.
Elements Massage of Cottonwood Heights has also been very involved in the community and has taken part in many events, including giving free massages to the runners at the Big Cottonwood (Revel) marathon a few months ago.
This level of philanthropy is nothing to Elements Massage. Before the doors of the Cottonwood Heights location even opened, Elements Massage started sponsoring different local foundations. The community involvement doesn’t stop there. Elements Massage supports and collaborates with surrounding businesses in Cottonwood Heights to bring everyone in their neck of the woods together.
To give back this season, Elements Massage is donating a portion of its proceeds on Dec. 15 to MS. So come by to take part in the great prices and special promotions that Elements Massage is offering that day and help support our neighbors with MS.
Coppin Colburn, a Hawaiian native, recently got a massage at the Cottonwood location. Colburn noted this about his experience, “From the moment I called and spoke with a young but very knowledgeable receptionist, the experience was incredible. My massage therapist was excellent. Everyone was so friendly. As a visitor, I felt very much at home.”
Elements Massage seeks to give this level of care to all of its clients, especially those in its local community. On Saturday, Dec. 13, Elements Massage will be setting up a massage tent at VASA Gym, formerly known as Gold’s Gym, on Van Winkle Expressway. The massage tent will offer discounted prices on some specialty massages given by Elements Massage’s very own certified massage therapists. These locally owned companies, which are located only 5 minutes away, are banding together to help the community by donating all of the proceeds from the event.
So take a break from the stressful holiday rush to relax with us and our friends at Elements Massage. These two special events will, not only leave you with a feel-good vibe, but prepare you for the busy weeks to come. l
