“It’s not selfish to love yourself, take care of yourself, and make your happiness a priority. It’s necessary.” – Mandy Hale
We all know that self-care is important, and essential even. It promotes countless benefits including longevity, cellular regeneration, and immune support, to name a few. So how come it is so much easier to encourage our friends to take a spa day than it is ourselves? Why is it so challenging to get into a routine of self-care and personal relaxation? We so often back burner our own needs, especially when it comes to something like a massage.
Pattie Seniw came to Idaho during her time as President of Fiberguide Industries. When the company underwent acquisition, Pattie’s position disappeared and left her searching for a new career path.
“I kept coming back to the Elements Massage business as I had been a member for over six years,” shared Pattie. “I love the wellness and healing focus of the business. I love that people leave our studio feeling better. And with the Elements Massage business model, we do not sell any products: our entire focus is on providing the best customized massage experience.”
So, in October of 2022, Pattie opened the doors to her own Elements Massage in Eagle at 228 E Plaza Drive, Suite J!
This dramatic change in career paths for Pattie serves as an important reminder to trust our paths and to take adversity in stride—you never quite know where it will lead you!
Pattie is grateful to share the Elements’ model of health and wellbeing with the Treasure Valley and encourages everyone to start a regular practice of self-care. But Elements is no typical massage studio, instead, they focus heavily on the customization of each individual massage.
“What sets us apart from other places is that no two massages are the same; we tailor the massage to the needs of the person and that can change from session to session,” said Pattie. “We have therapists with a wide range of skills that can perform deep tissue, Swedish, trigger point, sports, prenatal, lymphatic and many other types of massage. Our therapists are also skilled in cupping, Himalayan salt stone and basalt hot stone massage, all of which can be enhanced with aromatherapy or CBD oil treatments.”
Many people will wait until health issues begin to appear before they begin a consistent self-care routine. This is a common mistake as it is much easier to preserve health than it is to cure or fix a problem. So, what are you waiting for?
And just to sweeten the pot a little bit more, Elements offers introductory pricing for first time visitors!
