Eric Stephenson Named Chief Wellness Officer for Elements Massage

Elements Massage announced the hiring of Eric Stephenson as the brand’s first-ever chief wellness officer. Stephenson will work closely with more than 240 Elements Massage studios nationwide to implement continuing education and culture programs.

“Elements is the first national massage franchise brand to create the role of Chief Wellness Officer,” says Jeremy Morgan, CEO of Elements Massage. “We created this role to demonstrate our commitment to building an industry-leading culture and creating a world-class experience for all Elements’ studio members and their massage therapists. We’re thrilled that Eric has joined our team. As a licensed massage therapist, Eric’s industry experience will be invaluable as we continue to grow the Elements brand.”

Stephenson is cofounder of imassage, Inc. and also serves on the board of directors for the International Spa Association. He has been instrumental in positioning massage as a viable career path worldwide and in emerging countries such as India, where he was recently a keynote presenter at the Health Professions of India Conference.

“Research shows that massage can be an integral piece of one’s wellness regimen—alongside diet and exercise,” says Stephenson. “It is my mission to enlighten and educate others on all the positive impacts massage can have on daily life.”
