Sunshine’s signature massage: Not sure of what you need? After hearing your needs and session goals, Sunshine’s signature massage utilizes all the modalities she offers in one session. This experience is a fusion of yoga, massage, Thai, hot stones, deep tissue, inversion therapies- or anything your body is calling forth! Special “add ons” are included at no additional cost.
Beyond deep tissue: using slow, wide-spread pressure this deep tissue experience is calming for the nervous system yet gets into those painful areas.
Transformational thai massage/sports stretching: Clothed full body massage performed on a heated memory foam floor mat. Using deep or light pressure massage, this session involves full body stretching. You receive the benefits of going to a yoga class and getting a massage! This session opens your range of motion, increases your flexibility, energizes your body, speeds up recovery time and opens your joints. .
Couple’s massage instruction: learn fun, mutually beneficial, easy-to-remember massage poses that involve the entire body. The “giver” learns how to massage in a way that uses his/her entire body and feel more like mutual yoga than a massage.
Tandem Couples massage: Get massaged at the same time by two separate therapists
Four handed massage (the ultimate experience): Have two therapists massage you at once.
Purely inversion therapy: experience gentle back bends, front body openers and twists an “anti-gravity” experience where your body is suspended as the practitioner massages you with his/her hands and feet at the same time.
Mobile yoga/Massage: Get the customers information and send it to the available therapist. Mobile massage is only within Vail /west Vail/ east vail, all therapists can do them, they take the table to the client, Samantha doesnt love doing them so book them with others first.

You float out of the swing feeling lighter, taller and mentally more clear.
