Elements Hot Tub Spa is an independent, locally-owned spa, located in Amherst, MA, founded in 2007 by Jeff and Diana Krauth. Their previous business of almost 30 years was Beyond Words Bookshop, which had a focus on wholistic health, personal development, and spirituality. They bring their dedication to health and wellness to Elements, where we use only the highest-quality ingredients in all products, and retain a highly dedicated and experienced staff. The environment at Elements Hot Tub Spa is uplifting, cooperative, and professional, and has garnered us awards from the community for "Best Massage Therapy" and "Best Spa."

"After 10 minutes you forget the time. After 20 minutes you forget the world."
~ Mark Twain, after visiting the hot tubs in Baden-Baden, Germany.
Elements Hot Tub Spa is a state-of-the-art facility, dedicated to the highest standards of health and purity. The tubs include up to 108 hydrotherapy jets and bubblers. On two sides of each tub there is convenient deck seating, to cool off and stretch.
Elements' tubs are sanitized with three processes: ionization, ozonation, and chlorine. The entire volume of water in each tub is completely purified, and recirculated every 9 - 12 minutes, depending on the size of the tub. These features result in water that is crystal clear, and exceeds drinking-water standards.
The temperature of our hot tubs is set at the Massachusetts state guideline of 104 degrees. Hot tubs are an excellent way to fully relax ~ dilating blood vessels for enhanced blood flow and decreased blood pressure, sending more oxygen to the body's cells, softening muscles, and bringing a sigh of relief to your entire being.
Massage and Spa Services
Elements’ massage practitioners are professional Licensed Massage Therapists, experienced in a range of treatment modalities, and dedicated to your health and well-being. We are committed to providing sensitive, therapeutic, responsive and responsible treatment. All clients complete a health-information intake, and we encourage you to share your questions and expectations with your therapist so that each treatment session is healing, relaxing, and restorative.
Our basic relaxation session is a “Swedish Massage,” which combines long, gliding strokes with firmer, muscle-specific work. Clients are fully “draped” ~ only the part of the body that is being worked on is uncovered.
Elements therapists also offer therapeutic deep tissue work, sports massage, pre-natal massage, myofascial release, positional release, and Esalen-style massage. Please see the Services menu to read descriptions of specific treatment options.
We also offer facial and back skin treatments with a Licensed Esthetician. A full "European style" facial includes cleansing, exfoliation, mask, and moisturizing of the face, neck and shoulders.
For special treats, our spa services also include Sugar Scrubs, Herbal Wraps, Hot Stones, and Ayurvedic Bodywork.
