A graduate of Utah College of Massage Therapy, Shayna Dunn has spent the past four years quelling aches and tension with a host of massage modalities. During sessions held within Biofit Bootcamp, she might break up muscular knots with deep-tissue kneads or soothe regularly worked muscles to enhance athletic performance. But not all work is confined to an in-office session. Shayna demonstrates a variety of stretches that can be performed daily to reduce muscle soreness.
Everybody relaxes a little differently—some people can only wind down with a full-body massage, while others need a good foot rub. At Elements Spa, there's a path to relaxation for everyone. All of the spa's massages are fully customized, and all of them include aromatherapy, warm towels, and a sample of hot stones. A foot treatment is an ideal option for first-timers, as it can be done fully clothed on the table or in a chair. Other soothing options include linen body wraps and raindrop therapy, a treatment inspired by the Lakota Indians. Nine essential oils are placed along the spine like raindrops, then massaged in with a light technique.

Having visited clients in hotels and ski resorts for seven years before establishing her own practice, licensed massage therapist Allison and her other therapists has amassed a repertoire of luxurious add-ons to her services. Her wintertime patrons rest atop heated tables, for example, and she swaddles limbs in warm towels upon request. Guests can even choose how they would like their aromatherapy oils to be distributed: directly on the skin, diffused through the air, or delicately combed into their mustache.
Allison still makes house and hotel calls to complement her in-spa treatments, which cover a range of specialty massage techniques. Her signature modality mixes Swedish, Russian, and trigger-point therapy for a medley of surface- and deep-tissue work, whereas a pure relaxation massage relies on Swedish kneads to lull muscles into slack serenity. She and her apprentices have also mastered the use of hot stones, salt scrubs, and paraffin wraps to enhance their appointments. Whether her customers are hoping for pinpointed, intense strokes or a romantic couples massage, they can anticipate calming music and intuitive touch from the team.
Licensed massage therapist; certified personal trainer; yoga teacher. Dallin S. Larsen wears more hats than a milliner who wants to keep his hands free. He's trained all over the world, from the Renaissance College of Massage in Utah to the Yoga Vidya Gurukul ashram in India. And though this training casts a wide net, Dallin's mission can be distilled into a single goal: to help make people happy. He achieves this through a menu of services that address both the mind and the body. He can massage away aches and pains, guide clients on their path to weight loss, or even help calm minds with private yoga classes in a client's own home.
