Our History & Our Future

HISTORY:

Elite Therapeutic Massage was born in 2001, when Shelle Hagen planted the first seed (farm girl born and raised hence the farming analogy)  and opened a one room office. Since that day, Elite has been in business for 17+ years providing the best massage care and customer service in the Fargo/Moorhead area.  Shelle's ultimate goal behind Elite is to assist in the development of others to achieve their dreams! (This is the harvest!)


Shelle is a Christian who roots her business decisions on Biblical principals and focuses on positivity and love to surround everyone who enters Elite. We offer a no-drama environment that only allows positive, encouraging and uplifting qualities.


FUTURE:

In the next 5 years, you will see a creation of a "nest" of Health Partners at Elite who will work closely under one roof to provide our community with the highest quality of care, genuine connection, support systems, and answers to lead the healthful life that God intended for us all! We invite you to walk and cheer with us each step of the way!
