I’m writing this post for all of my past, present and future massage clients who are visiting Jackson Hole, WY and are forever making the same mistake. People often ask me, “what do you hear most from your clients?” The response is undoubtedly one of two things, the pertinent one being: why didn’t I get a massage at the beginning of my trip?
This little article should put to rest this phenomenon so people don’t rue their decisions and regret waiting until the end of their trip to Jackson Hole to get a massage.
We know why you’re here. People make a trip to Jackson Hole for one thing: an action and adventure filled vacation. Jackson is the home of the weekend warrior. Vacationers arrive daily to push it hard on the mountain for 4 days without having skied since their ski trip last year, to do a 15 mile hike at altitude on a 30 degree incline, both ways, when the longest hike they make is from the parking lot to the grocery store, to ride horses on an 8 day pack trip when they haven’t ridden since they were 12, you get the idea. I see it all the time. Let me pose this bit of advice to you: if you get a massage when you first arrive in Jackson Hole you are giving yourself a huge advantage that will affect your entire adventure here.
Let me explain. When you get a massage when you first arrive you are addressing the issues and chronic problem areas that plague you in your day to day life and are thereby beginning the healing process. You are also relieving any tension, stress and muscle stiffness from travel. Both of these will inhibit your performance in your eagerly anticipated activity. Muscle tension, “knots,” and shortness diminish your strength. Massage increases oxygenation of your cells which helps you to acclimate to Jackson’s high altitude. It enhances performance and endurance. Equally as important, a massage at the beginning of your trip decreases your chance of injury. It’s hard to imagine a bigger bummer than blowing out a knee on the first morning of your ski vacation. Most importantly, in my opinion , I believe I hear this from my clients because they realize that they want to come back to me for another treatment, but can’t because they’re flying home in the morning. I hear this time and time again. I understand that you probably would never have thought that you’d find a life changing therapy session on your trip to Jackson Hole, but I tell you – it happens.
Don’t be the majority of people who wait until the last day or two of their vacation to receive their massage and pine forever more for another session. Save yourself a world of hurt and get a massage first and then after you’ve played hard and are sore. I promise, you’ll thank me for it!

When you think of Reiki you usually think of healing the body. You see a vision of a Reiki practitioner working over the body of the client doing their thing. You might even have heard of people practicing Reiki on clients over long distances or over the phone. Reiki is also used on plants and animals. It can be used for anything you can imagine…even building your business!
For those of you who do not know what Reiki is, it is an ancient healing art from Japan. Reiki practitioners are specifically attuned to take in the Reiki (or universal) energy. They are, essentially, just a conduit, a channel, of the Reiki energy. They take in the energy and then transfer it to their client. The Reiki energy is an intelligent energy and knows where to go to be of benefit. This is healing on many levels and can be very powerful indeed. It can help to balance our own energetic systems and realign our energy field. As everything IS energy everything can be affected at an energetic level.
In my own experience, I have found that I have effectively increased my business using this energy. I have more clients coming in the door. I have consistently met and even increased my weekly income goal. Itʼs amazing how this stuff works! How, you might ask. Well, I have made it a practice to energise my business with Reiki and magnetise my advertising tools with this energy.One of the keys to loving what you do and being most effective as a doer of what you do is to know, understand and attract your ideal client. It is critical that you have a thorough understanding of who you ideal client is. After you have really defined your ideal client, youʼll have more clarity about who you would like walking through your door. Once you have clarity you are better able to focus your energy on something specific. When you have better focus you are able to manifest what you want much more effectively. Channeling Reiki to your ideal clients, even if youʼve never met them, will draw them to you.
You can also use Reiki to magnetise your business cards, any kind of ad you are running or have run, even your business phone number. Sending the Reiki energy to your advertising tools magnetises them to attract your clients to you. Donʼt believe me? Try it!
This is an exercise for you in charging and changing your business utilising Reiki energy.
Step 1. Start to meditate. I find generating a profound feeling of gratitude and/or love helps to raise your vibration and puts you in a powerful state to transfer the Reiki energy and attract what you want.
Step 2. Send Reiki to all your ideal clients that you currently work with. Then send Reiki to all your ideal clients in the world, wherever they may be. Next, send Reiki to all your ideal clients past, present and future. Finally, send Reiki to all the people who need your work. I find that generally, these will be ideal clients.
Step 3. Send Reiki to your business cards, ads, anything out there with your name and/or logo. Magnetise these media with the Reiki energy. This will cause your ideal clients to be attracted to you and your work and will also attract people who already know your work and bring you into their awareness to take action.
Step 4. Send Reiki to anyone and everyone who has ever heard of you, seen your name/logo, has a business card or has had any exposure to you on any level.
Step 5. Release and let the phone ring!
I have found this works within a couple to a few days. I do this regularly and have had wondrous results. The best thing is: you have nothing to lose and everything to gain! This doesnʼt cost you anything, but it could change your life.

Well, it’s here again. We’ve had beautiful fall weather here in Jackson Hole, but that hasn’t seemed to stop it. It’s affected large parts of our community. It’s taking people down. I’m referring to the cold and flu virus that seems to sweep the country every autumn. It seems inevitable, unavoidable. Is there a way to keep it from hunting us down and taking away days or weeks of our lives? I believe there is a way…
The key is in keeping your immune system super strong. We regularly have all kinds of nasties in our system all the time, but our immune system is constantly fighting them and keeping them at bay. It’s when our system becomes over loaded and over taxed that it starts losing the battle, and we definitely feel the effects.
But, how to keep our immune system in tip top shape? A key factor is detoxifying the body. By removing toxic load you are essentially taking things off your immune system’s plate. By reducing it’s work load you’re allowing it to function optimally. Nutritional support is also key. The vast array of nutrients and especially antioxidants help you maintain a strong body and immune system. I like the rainbow and seasonal availability rules: eat the colours of the rainbow at every meal and eat the things that are in season.
How to detox, you might ask? Breathing is a great start. Most of us don’t breathe properly, believe it or not. Deep breathing is a great way to cleanse. Sweating is also a great way to detox. Sweating removes impurities from the body. Things like dry brushing, alternating hot and cold water while in the shower, and drinking tons of water are all easy ways to cleanse. For deeper cleaning and better health you can get a bit more crazy like juicing, colonics, and cleansing programs. An easier, less time consuming and involved way to detox is to combine a few of these methods to best effect. Our detox ritual is a great example of this. We’ve combined sweating, far infrared technology, herbal and seaweed properties, ion technology and manual massage techniques to provide you with the most effective detox program. Our rituals are designed to meet your busy schedule and your body’s needs. Flexibility is the name of the game here because no program is effective if you don’t do it. Our Fall Detox Rituals are available through November so check out the details at http://connectionjh.com/
