SHREWSBURY – With a unique variety of massage options provided by its therapists, Elements Massage of Shrewsbury caters to clients with a range of needs. 

“We offer prenatal massage therapy, sports injury recovery treatment, cupping, deep tissue and cupping therapy, Swedish massage, and most recently added an upgrade to enhance the session with CBD oils,” said Andrew Dudka, who co-owns Elements Massage with his wife Jill.

Elements Massage opened in 2012 and now has 18 therapists offering these treatments in its Shrewsbury location.

“Massage therapy gives you the benefit for your brain to shut down for a full hour or more! Our therapists do an excellent job providing our unique service path,” said Dudka. “When a client first comes to us, we ask: What is their goal? What type of touch do they want and expect? Then we match them with a therapist who offers what the client is asking for.”

The focus on client comfort is a priority at Elements Massage. Each client is greeted by his or her first name, and staff confirm the type of massage that each client wants. Music and lighting are adjusted to the client’s desired levels in the treatment rooms.

“We do a lot of check-ins during treatment,” said Dudka. “We allow the client to tell us about their comfort with pressure checks, and we ask if they would like the pressure to be lighter, the same, or deeper as the therapy progresses.”

After a therapy session, each therapist takes the time to talk with the client about the session and makes recommendations for the therapy journey.

In addition to expertise in specific areas of massage therapy, each therapist at Elements Massage is trained on safety protocols.

Dudka said, “Safety is of the utmost importance here. We emphasize client safety while in the room and train our therapists in protocols to make the client comfortable, especially where privacy and draping are concerned. We also make sure our therapists are safe; they are trained on how to respond to what may become uncomfortable situations with clients.” 

Elements Massage of Shrewsbury helped people benefit from massage therapy during the peak of COVID and continues to practice sanitary measures in the face of COVID.

“We are vigilant on cleaning everything between clients, and both therapists and clients have the option of wearing masks,” said Dudka. 

On the topic of trends in the massage therapy industry, Dudka is seeing a growth in the popularity of massage with CBD oil.

“CBD oil penetrates deeply into the muscle to relieve soreness and inflammation. It has circulation benefits as well and can help to improve sleep,” said Dudka. “However, there is no THC in the CBD oil, the chemical which can cause psychological effects.”
