Feeling unwell often stems from much more than just a physical ailment. The body can only be completely well if both it and the mind are at peace, and this is what Elements of Sunshine, located at 3837 Pacific Ave., specializes in, with a focus on responsible thinking, responsible speaking and responsible hearing.
Elements of Sunshine is an all around health betterment facility that offers life coaching, guided meditation, personal massages and medical marijuana.
Elements of Sunshine owner Andrea Sulusi is a stage four cancer survivor, and has experience in trying to get healthy in both mind and spirit.
“People have a tremendous mental battle as well as a physical battle in order to overcome physical ailments,” Sulusi said. “We’re getting people some things you don’t get when you turn the TV on. 'Inspired,' that’s what it's designed to do; we try to give people a chance to get on the road to wellness and eliminate negative thought patterns.”
Sulusi believes that a positive attitude can go miles in healing the mind and body, and this philosophy is what drives every action at Elements of Sunshine.
“I try to stay as positive as possible. If you’re looking for a boost, inspirational words, inspirational thought, come here,” Sulusi said. “It’s all in the importance of taking responsibility for your way of living, period. I didn’t open Elements of Sunshine because I want to get rich, I opened it because I want to share love and I want to spread that. I believe the foundation for a successful world is loving other people and tolerating other people and also giving other people the words they so desperately need to hear.”
Elements of Sunshine focuses on healing the body with relaxing personal massages, encouraging a positive atmosphere while putting the body at ease.
“[Elements of Sunshine] offers massage therapy that fills in the blanks for some people because we need to be touched; it’s a positive touch,” Sulusi said.
The Elements of Sunshine staff is dedicated to making customers feel as comfortable as possible, not because it is their job but because they truly believe in the mission.
“Offering people words of kindness, offering help and love is also part of being a responsible person,” Sulusi said.
Elements of Sunshine is a licensed medical marijuana facility, providing this natural medicine for those that need it.
“[Medical marijuana] is an aid that removes mental blocks and sometimes it creates necessary blocks. Cannabis can be used to shut off what you can’t handle listening to, or to turn on what we need to hear. Mental chatter, sometimes you need to purge that, sometimes you need to suppress it, that will depend on what type of need you have,” Sulusi said. “I went through a lot of unnecessary suffering for a very long time, and I don’t want to see people suffer in that way. We know better.”
Elements of Sunshine is open 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday. For appointments, call (253) 507-8456.
